Have you tired using the message and mailbox behaviors?
When the enemy gets hit by a bullet or lose health, it sends a message to the player in which the message adds to a counter.

Ok. Here’s what you want to do:

  1. Make a mailbox block in your player. Connect it to a number (make it 1), and connect that number to another number (0) at the + sign. Name the mailbox Kill.
  2. On the enemy’s death, send a message to your player titled Kill.

Basically, the 0 number is your overall kill count. By attaching a one to the mailbox, it allows 1 to be added to that kill count. When the enemy dies, it sends a message to the player that acts as a trigger. Then it reaches the player, which triggers the 1, which adds 1 to your overall kill count.

If there’s something more complicated you’d like to add, such as text, please ask me and I’ll lead you through the steps.
