Operand types:

Type of returned value:



Random real value from 0 to x.


_rNumber = random 1


Be careful using random numbers in multiplayer, each client will come up with something different.

See multiplayer tutorials for more general information about locality.

The number returned is unlikely to be a whole number (e.g. 1, 4, 76, etc.).

To return a whole number combine random and mod.
