What are the instructions for this step? I think they will tell you what you are missing

I did everything according to the instructions, even tried in different ways

Below your update call, set the monsterHealth to be the health of the current monster. You can get this value by accessing the health property of monsters[fighting] with dot notation.

Here it tells you:

Check your code and see what you are missing

Read the instructions slowly again. It tells you what to get, how to get it and which way to “call” it.

Hi @zariken1

Your code is almost complete.
You need to access the health property using dot notation.
You did something similar in your buyWeapon function.

Happy coding


Remember that monsters is an array. Array’s are filled with objects that have different properties and property values. You’re being asked to access the current object and it’s property. Right now you have the array monsters, and you have the current monster using the fighting variable. What we need is the health property attached to the fighting monster.
