Best Fallout 4 Companions

Fallout 4 is a great game and here are some great companions in the game.

The Top Ten

1 Dogmeat

Man's best friend, even in the wasteland. Do anything and the dog won't judge you. Dog meat is especially useful too. He can trap enemies by biting their arms or legs and you can finish them off. Dogmeat is a great virtual pet I guess you can call him that I dunno. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Bloody adorable German Shepard! Very lovely!

He would be better if he could fight alongside a companion, but they desided to cut that don't ask me why.

2 Nick Valentine

Really like this guy. He's witty and just bada**. It's great having him along when you have to hack terminals higher than your level or you're just too lazy to hack them. He is also good with lock picks as well. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Best companion of all time he can hack MASTER TERMINALS! I will never change him until I find another one who also can hack master terminals

Who could be better than a synth detective

Best at hacking terminals

3 Paladin Danse

Whats more awesome than a guy in power armor with a laser rifle? A guy in T-60 power armor with a laser rifle and in the Brotherhood of Steel. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

He may be useful in combat but his loyalty to the Brotherhood is unrealistic and idiotic You are simply not a cool cat Paladin

Just a absolute tank with a Gatling laser

Sorry MacReady but danse should’ve been number 1 he’s one of the best companions and most powerful and its sad that he dies but he’s a badass

4 Cait

Can't says you act nice to her in one of her lines when really all you do for her is Pickpocket, Take Drugs, Be Naked, And be a complete jerk to Sheffield. Get her affinity so low she leaves you, then after that murder her.

A psychopath who will destroy anything in her path - SirSkeletorThe3rd


Listen, she might be a little evil, but she has her good side also.
She had a really hard past. She was alone for the first 23 years of her life.
She only took the chems to forget about all of it.
She also becomes really nice to Nate if he is in a romantic relationship with her OR has max affinity with her.
She likes it when you choose to get rid of super mutants in fort strong for the brotherhood.
She likes it when you return the Locket of the Abernathy farm to the deceased girl's father.
She hates it if you sell billy to bucket.
Yes, she dislikes it if you help settlements who can't defend themselves and need repeated help.
But she also defends hancock if you call him 'junkie', also she likes it when you help certain people like Daisy.
She is really funny also. Her reaction to Nate being the silver shroud is simply priceless...
She is secretly scared of spiders and likes horses, a few of you will already ...more

5 Piper Wright

A awesome and nosy news reporter. Give her the right weapons and she will blow away any enemy - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Great for exp when you go to new places. Plus I love the dialogue she has with little interactions. Love the nicknaming of the main character.

She's not the best in a firefight, but I don't really care. My guy has ballistic weave MKV over a full set of heavy polymer combat armor (-helmet, that's ballistic weave MKV trilby hat) so I'm like in constant t-45 without being in t-45. She's very vocal in any environment. Most interactive companion. She's like a way cooler versio of Nick. I don't like nick. Dunno why.

6 Codsworth

Codsworth feels like the last family member you have in a post apocalyptic and nuclear world

He's funny, has a british accent, actually calls you by your name, and is really tough! Also, Dogmeat sucks, his AI is dumb, he is the dumbest, slowest, most useless dog I've ever met... but hey, he's a dog. - EliHbk

He doesn't block walls.

He's a robit

7 John Hancock

Hancock has the apocalyptic attitude of help those in need and kill those who need killing, which I like. Plus Hancock has a comedic personality that makes him more cool than Deacon, and I like Deacon. But what really makes him cool is that he is not characterless and obnoxious like Strong and Preston.

He has a great and funny persona, as well as being good in combat

Mostly good morals, funny and good weapon

A historic guy from the 1700s in the future. - doodie

8 Preston Garvey

An epic minuteman. He's also the leader of the Minutemen too. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

I'd vote in this pole, but I hear that another settlement needs my help.

Oh no...
"Another settlement needs your help- Babe".


Ok I'm done😐

9 Curie

A French (hon hon hon baguette Eiffel Tower) Mr. Handy Robot found in Vault 81. She gives you a serum to save a little boy from dying. Or you can use it in yourself and the boy will die you heartless animal. I'm sure that of you give the serum to the boy Curie will become a follower. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Love this girl, especially when she becomes a Synth and is so confused about herself. It's like having a daughter!

She has a sexy accent, despite being a synth.

First she's a robot then she's hot

10 Deacon

How is Deacon below Preston, Deacon is my third favourite

I once spied on Deacon when he was changing disguises. He actually strips off before he puts on a new costume.

The Contenders

11 MacCready

Great companion I like the side quests that come with him, also his personality is very likeable. - JangoFett3

Best companion ever so funny and has refrences to fallout 3

Love MacCready he’s a boba fett if you will in fallout I idolize him as a great companion he should be in the top 10

12 Strong

A dim-witted yet useful Super Mutant. He can destroy everything in his path. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Strong is not nearly as cool as Fawkes or Lily

Strong is the funniest companion I've ever seen

He's voiced by Goku NEED I SAY MORE?!?!?!

13 Porter Gage

I think is is essential if you wanna play as a villain

Great character with a great backstory. He makes Nuka World better.

14 Travis Miles

(Side Quest Spoilers.) Travis Miles can be obtained as a companion if you go through the quest confidence man in diamond city that starts when you talk to Vadim the second time you enter the dugout in. You can still talk to him and start the quest if you fail to talk to him the second time. The moment you find Travis at Beantown brewery speak to and ask him to follow you. Here is the key part DO NOT COMPLETE THE QUEST IF YOU WISH TO HAVE HIM AS A COMPANION. You cannot trade with him but if he get into battle and there is power armor with a fusion core he MAY enter. If you pickpocket his ammo and place in some other type and then have him follow you into battle he MAY pick up a weapon but he WILL also loot corpses and take their weapon and ammo and MAY equipped. He is also quite tough and can be used well having any other companion he is also useful in the way that the lone wanderer perk is active even if he follows you.

15 Arcade Gannon
16 Old Longfellow

How is he so low on the list, unlike some companions (X6-88, Preston) he has an intriguing back story. Is companion quest out does all 4 of the others. I mean what's not like about a rough character like himself. He is definitely one of the highlights of the Far Harbor DLC

He may be DLC but he is really useful
