Question Need Help with a Projectile script I made

    I made an enemy AI script that follows, retreats, and shoots at my player, but for some reason, the Game Object(bullet) it spawns in always has a rotation that is (0, 0, 0) and faces upwards because of it. The object that I am trying to spawn in, however, is rotated in the prefab. Can anyone help with this?

    Code (CSharp):
    1. using System.Collections;
    2.  
    3. using System.Collections.Generic;
    4.  
    5. using UnityEngine;
    6.  
    7.  
    8.  
    9. public class EnemyAI : MonoBehaviour
    10.  
    11. {
    12.  
    13.  
    14.  
    15.     public float speed;
    16.  
    17.     public float stoppingDistance;
    18.  
    19.     public float retreatDistance;
    20.  
    21.  
    22.  
    23.     public GameObject bullet;
    24.  
    25.     public Transform player;
    26.  
    27.  
    28.  
    29.     private float timeBtwShots;
    30.  
    31.     public float startTimeBtwShots;
    32.  
    33.  
    34.  
    35.     // Start is called before the first frame update
    36.  
    37.     void Start()
    38.  
    39.     {
    40.  
    41.         player = GameObject.Find("Player").transform;
    42.  
    43.  
    44.  
    45.         timeBtwShots = startTimeBtwShots;
    46.  
    47.     }
    48.  
    49.  
    50.  
    51.     // Update is called once per frame
    52.  
    53.     void Update()
    54.  
    55.     {
    56.  
    57.         if (Vector3.Distance(transform.position, player.position) > stoppingDistance)
    58.  
    59.         {
    60.  
    61.             transform.position = Vector3.MoveTowards(transform.position, player.position, speed * Time.deltaTime);
    62.  
    63.         }
    64.  
    65.         else if (Vector3.Distance(transform.position, player.position) < stoppingDistance && Vector3.Distance(transform.position, player.position) > retreatDistance)
    66.  
    67.         {
    68.  
    69.             transform.position = this.transform.position;
    70.  
    71.         }
    72.  
    73.         else if (Vector3.Distance(transform.position, player.position) < retreatDistance)
    74.  
    75.         {
    76.  
    77.             transform.position = Vector3.MoveTowards(transform.position, player.position, -speed * Time.deltaTime);
    78.  
    79.         }
    80.  
    81.         if (timeBtwShots < -0)
    82.  
    83.         {
    84.  
    85.             Instantiate(bullet, transform.position, Quaternion.identity);
    86.  
    87.             timeBtwShots = startTimeBtwShots;
    88.  
    89.         }
    90.  
    91.         else
    92.  
    93.         {
    94.  
    95.             timeBtwShots -= Time.deltaTime;
    96.  
    97.         }
    98.  
    99.  
    100.  
    101.     }
    102.  
    103. }

    You're telling Unity to give your object a rotation of (0,0,0) when you pass in Quaternion.identity for the rotation value.

    Whatever your intended rotation for the new object is? You can use the rotation from the prefab if you want.
