Actuators perform actions, such as move, create objects, play a sound. The actuators initiate their functions when they get a positive pulse from one (or more) of their controllers.

The logic blocks for all types of actuator may be constructed and changed using the Logic Editor; details of this process are given in the Actuator Editing page.
