Adding a Bind Event node in different ways can create nodes with identical names (Bind Event to <Dispatcher>), but under the hood they are actually different nodes.

Easiest evidence is that they have different tooltips. But there's also some difference in blueprint functionality. For example, one of the node types can be placed in a blueprint function, whereas the other can't.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open QAGame in editor.
  2. Open the level blueprint.
  3. Create an Event Dispatcher.
  4. Drag the dispatcher into the level and select Assign. This will create an event and a Bind Event node.
  5. Right-click in the graph and select Assign <YourDispatcher>. This will create another event and Bind Event node (with the same name as the previous one).
  6. Hover your cursor over each Bind Event node.


Though these nodes have the same names, they are different nodes (they have different tooltips).


Either the same type of node is created regardless of the process of creating them, or the nodes have some naming distinction.
