Do you remember Dogmeat in the Fallout 4 trailers? There?s more companions other than that furry dog and they can help you combat foes in the game. Don?t worry about them getting killed because they are impervious to permanent deaths.
Having your buddy tag along with you is not a one-way-street. You can romance some of your Fallout 4?companions, and just like in real life, you can have multiple romance partners. You can see what happens when you romance your companion in the video below by Eurogamer, be wary however of spoilers.
Having companions doesn?t only help you in fending-off foes as they also help you obtain special perks which can only be attained by befriending companions. Not all companions can be found in the main mission of the game. Below are all the Fallout 4 companions and where they can be located courtesy of Twinfinite.
