What is the recommended method to access a Humanoid RootPart

Should I use:

return Character:WaitForChild("HumanoidRootPart")


local Part = Humanoid.RootPart
if Part then
	return Part
return Humanoid.RootPart

What are their pros and cons?

Btw “RootPart” is actually “HumanoidRootPart” and it’s in the Character not the Humanoid

local Part = Character:WaitForChild("HumanoidRootPart")

RootPart is not a property of the Humanoid class. You should just use WaitForChild

Hope this helps!

Humanoid contains a RootPart property which references HumanoidRootPart just as the PrimaryPart of the Character does. Humanoid | Documentation - Roblox Creator Hub


My bad, I forgot to check the documentation. You’re right.

Imo I still think WaitForChild is better because it’s only a single line of code.

But I’m not sure about the underlying process so maybe PropertyChangedSignal is way more efficient.

There is no difference and should not be using any brain resources as a problem.
