Having Area2D for main character.

I’m using Area2D.position for moving.

Is this proper way?
Are Area2D s supposed to be moved?

As it can be seen here
that’s why i have chosen Area2D for main character.

You should use a KinematicBody2D.
Area2D should not be used for a character.

what about a bullet? when i make it too fast, it can clip through things and i dont want that how could i fix it?

Yes it’s ok to do so.
That’s how it is done in the “my first game tutorial” Your first game — Godot Engine (3.1) documentation in English
(KinematicBody2D is more advanced (thus more complex) but is NOT mandatory)

Yes, this is the correct way.
