    Hi there, I am very new to Unity and working on a game for my capstone project. I have an Item script which lets me interact with items, grab and drop them, and also examine. I also have a PlayerCombat script which controls my attacks and attack animations. But I have worked in the animator and also tried to sort out how I could include that animation once the character picks up the bat in the item script.
    So basically, I just need the bat to follow my hand when attacking because it stays in the frozen default state once I pick it up and press attack.
    Code (CSharp):
    1. using UnityEngine;
    2.  
    3. public class PlayerCombat : MonoBehaviour {
    4.  
    5.     public Transform attackPoint;
    6.     public LayerMask enemyLayers;
    7.     public Animator animator;
    8.  
    9.     public float attackRange = 0.5f;
    10.     public int attackDamage = 5;
    11.  
    12.     public float attackRate = 2f;
    13.     float nextAttackTime = 0f;
    14.  
    15.  
    16.     void Update()
    17.     {
    18.         if (Time.time >= nextAttackTime)
    19.         {
    20.  
    21.             if (Input.GetKeyDown(KeyCode.Mouse0))
    22.             {
    23.                 Attack();
    24.                 nextAttackTime = Time.time + 1f / attackRate;
    25.             }
    26.         }
    27.     }
    28.  
    29.     void Attack()
    30.     {
    31.         //Play an attack animation
    32.         animator.SetTrigger("Attack");
    33.         //Detect enemies in range of attack
    34.         Collider2D[] hitEnemies = Physics2D.OverlapCircleAll(attackPoint.position, attackRange, enemyLayers);
    35.  
    36.         //Damage them
    37.         foreach (Collider2D enemy in hitEnemies)
    38.         {
    39.             enemy.GetComponent<Enemy>().TakeDamage(attackDamage);
    40.             Debug.Log("Enemy damage");
    41.             AudioManager.instance.PlaySFX("playerHit");
    42.         }
    43.  
    44.     }
    45.     void OnDrawGizmosSelected()
    46.     {
    47.  
    48.         if (attackPoint == null)
    49.             return;
    50.         Gizmos.DrawWireSphere(attackPoint.position, attackRange);
    51.     }
    52.  
    53.     void Die()
    54.     {
    55.         GetComponent<Collider2D>().enabled = false;
    56.         this.enabled = false;
    57.     }
