Question About NavMesh Agent and rotation

So I have a NavMesh Agent on a Enemy Object. However, I also have a script on this object, here is the script:
using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using UnityEngine;
using UnityEngine.AI; //NEED

public class EnemyPathFinding : MonoBehaviour {

    public float lookRadius = 10;       //how close till it starts following?

    Transform target;
    NavMeshAgent agent;

    public GameObject CharacterList;
    public PlacingCharacters placingCharacters;

    // Use this for initialization
    void Start()

        #region Getting ReferencesS

        int PlayerIndex = PlayerPrefs.GetInt("Player");
        int OpponentIndex = PlayerPrefs.GetInt("Opponent");


        GameObject player = placingCharacters.CharacterList[PlayerIndex];
        if(gameObject == player.gameObject)
        {//if the player and the gameObject are the same

            gameObject.GetComponent<NavMeshAgent>().enabled = false;
            Destroy(this, 0);


        target = player.transform;
        agent = GetComponent<NavMeshAgent>();

    // Update is called once per frame
    void Update()
        float distance = Vector3.Distance(transform.position, target.position);

        if (distance <= lookRadius)
        {//if the player is in the look radius
            agent.SetDestination(target.position);      //set destination

            //update rotation
            if (distance <= agent.stoppingDistance)
            {//if it is stopped



    public void FaceTarget()
        //get difference of the rotation of the player and gameObjects position
        Vector3 direction = (target.position - transform.position).normalized;

        //set lookRotation to the x and y of the player
        Quaternion lookRotation = Quaternion.LookRotation(new Vector3(direction.x, 0, direction.z));

        //apply rotation
        transform.rotation = Quaternion.Slerp(transform.rotation, lookRotation, Time.deltaTime * 5);


Now, I have a rigid body on this Object because I am wanting to make it affected by objects, for example, if I as a player “push” the object, I want it to fall down. However, when I “push” it down, it does not move. It’s as if the rotation is frozen. I did check the Rigid body constraints, and there is no constraints on the object.

Thank you in advance!

Hi! Let me know if I’m understanding the problem right, but you just want to be able to knock your enemy around like any other rigidbody? I ran into the same problem, and it turns out that navmesh agents cannot be acted on by normal physics like you want. To have them knocked around, you have to have the enemy disable its navmesh component. You can then reenable it when the enemy lands on the ground again.

I read that it’s good practice to have your agents’ rigidbody set to kinematic while on the navmesh, changing that value when airborne is probably also a good idea. My answer is by no means definitive, that’s just what I’ve found to work for my project and I’d welcome anyone else’s comments on it.
