You don't, at least not as easily as ME3.

If I remember correctly, the enemy needs to be right on top of you, then hit whatever is your gun trigger.  It's a bit primitive and limited.

In ME1, you want to play the caster one (Adept?).
It is so incredibly broken it's amazing.

In the higher difficulties, this is accurate because powers did more damage then ammunition. However, soldier class generally tore through easy and normal, and even hard with no trouble. Just need to stay on top of your weaponry.

TASTY!

Vanguard is really not that great unless you want a soldier with some biotics. It gets better with ME2 and especially 3. I'll second soldier though, lots of useful powers. I abused Marksman a LOT (I think vanguard has marksman too).

You also can't melee until ME2, sadly.

I enjoyed Vanguard in ME1. Get overload (or whatever it's called)  and an awesome shotgun, then laugh as you one shot everything.

Max out lift.  Put maximum +force mods into your shotgun.  Go directly under an enemy that you've just used lift on.  Point skyward.  Fire your shotgun.

Lulz ensue.

This. Well, I also modded my shotguns to take down geth easily while I modded heavy pistols to deal with organics. I really didn't use the ME1 Vanguard's biotic powers much though.

Fast forward to ME3, where my vanguard Shep barely uses bullets, ever.

So true. There's Lift + Throw too.

im starting to think ME1 is just a horrible game and i should consider skipping to ME 2. im on the planet where you have to find the matriarch's daughter and theres a scripted battle where i've died about 10 times. once the battle starts i cant even retreat and regroup because some red laser hits me and 1 shots me.

Honestly, you should battle througb, even if its boring as fuck. I suggest using the power wheel more, as it does stop everything around you and let you aim and I.D. targets that you can hit with squad powers. If it really doean't help enough, you can change the difficulty down to easy for the fight...

The point is you need to experience the first game to develop your own shepard. It will be worth it in the end, Alisha.

TASTY!

No lie, that part is the only big hurdle in the game.  I die there at least once every time I play through the game.  If you can beat that, you can beat anything and everything else that the game throws at you, so keep trying.

It doesn't help that a game ending glitch can frequently happen there. May make funny screens though.

Just start the second game, it'll ask if you have save data from ME1 and then look for it.
