Mass Effect 1 Legendary Edition


Claire Farnworth

Lift is an unlockable biotic talent in Mass Effect 1 which allows the caster to lift enemies into the air, completely immobilising them and making them unable to attack. It can be used to harness the momentum of a charging enemy or to bring enemies out of cover, making them more vulnerable to attack. Lift is available as an unlock for Adepts, Sentinels, Vanguards and Liara (Asari Scientist).
