How do I get a Node´s velocity

 initVelocity = self.velocity 
finalVelocity = RAWAcceleration * delta + initVelocity

here i´m trying to get the velocity of a kinematic body with self.velocity Is this the way to go?

I get the error message: Invalid get index "velocity" (on base: "KinematicBody(").

A KinematicBody doesn’t have a velocity property. Kinematic bodies only move based on your code, so you must provide a velocity and implement movement yourself.

See Using KinematicBody2D for details.

Ok, thanks. Are there any nodes that have a velocity property?

RigidBody2D is a node with a physics that is calculated by the engine. It has a linear_velocity but you can’t set it directly. There is information about it here: Physics Introduction
