The Get Physics Linear Velocity node seems to only output a vector of 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 no matter what the velocity of the object it's measuring is. 


Tested in //UE4/Release-4.27 @ CL 17735300 and this did NOT occur, so marking as a Regression

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open Third Person Template project
  2. Open the ThirdPersonCharacter
  3. Add an Event Tick node
  4. Add a Get Physics Linear Velocity (Mesh) node
  5. Connect the Linear Velocity node to a Print String node
  6. Print out the Return Value of the Linear Velocity node
  7. Compile and Save the Blueprint
  8. Play the game


A value of zero is printed out on the viewport


The value printed would be representative of the ThirdPersonCharacter's velocity
