A few different ways to achieve this. A naive approach is to clamp the hitbox distance from the centre of the area (i.e. its radius). You could also create a polygon collider and do it all in editor.

  • Create a Sprite with a texture of that shape (an image of a circle for example)
  • Press Sprite > Create CollisionPolygon2D Sibling
