Phase. How use ability weapons?

So this is my first 3rd person project - I’ve always created FPS’s as the weapon side of things is pretty much taken care of.
This is a big jump. I’ve imported Paragon Phase. Mapped her to the standard 3rd Person player and selected the animation set. She’s happily running around, jumping and dying (rather spectacularly) when I want her to.

Time to introduce things that need to be shot and I haven’t a clue how to set this up.

In FPS mode you use a cross-hair and point the whole character to aim. I’m guessing this is rather more complicated. For start the camera isn’t directly behind Phase.

Any help appreciated!!
