Online leader board
One of my contributions to the game was an online leader board. A team member posted a leader board plugin so I picked that up because I was finished with my sprint. It works by sending JSON back and forth to a real-time database via the REST API from Firebase. To do that from Unreal I used a plugin called VaRest.
