Game overview:

Operation: Desert City is a simple FPP shooter done in Unreal Engine 4. It was created solely for the purpose of learning Unreal Engine 4.

When I started, I had only the very basic knowledge of how the engine works (watched/completed only few tutorials for beginners). After slightly over a month of almost non-stop reading/watching tutorials and trying things out in the editor I ended up with the game you see in front of you. It's nothing super fancy, but I think it's pretty OK for something done by a complete noob, who never done anything in the UE4 or other engine of similar magnitude.
