Object reference not set to an instance of an object

Ok, so I’ve tried every way I possibly know of to fix this issue but I’ve gotten nowhere. I thought GetComponent would fix this but it’s not. The error is caused by the debug log message.

using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;

public class Block : MonoBehaviour {

	public Player player;

	public int hp;
	public int id;
	public int moneyGet;

	// Use this for initialization
	void awake () {

		player = (Player)GameObject.FindGameObjectWithTag ("Player").GetComponent (typeof(Player));
	// Update is called once per frame
	void Update () {

	public void DamageBlock (int loss) {

		hp -= loss;

		if (hp <= 0) {


			gameObject.SetActive (false);


So are you trying to find the player gameobject or the player script? If you want to find the script all you need is

private Player player;

void Start(){

player = FindObjectOfType<Player> ();

If you want to find the gameobject, just put:

 public Transform Player;

public void Start()
 Player = GameObject.FindWithTag ("Player").transform;
