I have a weapon node as a child of my character and I only want to inherit the position but not the character’s rotation setting the global_rotation in process is not working because the parent is animated with the AnimationPlayer node.

Make sure AnimationPlayer is located higher in scene hierarchy, so its update happens earlier, then for nodes below.
Something like this:

|- AnimationPlayer
|- YourNode
    |- WeaponNode

Some more about it:

# YourNode
onready var weapon : Node2D = $WeaponNode

func _process(_delta: float) -> void:
    weapon.global_rotation = 15

this works for me

thanks tried to change the AnimationPlayer node process to physics and manual but it didn’t work, and the latter I don’t know how to do that and Im working on 2D
