Top 10 Best Fallout Series Companions
The Top Ten
I love Fawkes so much. He is incredible strong, his deafault weapon is a GATALING LASER, He has 9000 health and is an amazing character. What a lot of people don't know about Fawkes is that he was locked in the cell for over 200 years. In that time he was able to keep his sanity and show human nature and is kind and compassionate. Defiantly the best companion and one of the strongest characters in the series. - Cosmic558
One shot, one kill. Bye bye Caesar legion
I think that Boone is awesome because of his backstory.His quests are pretty cool as well.
Boone is by far the best New Vegas companion. He is superb at combat, he is a very interesting character, I consider both his quests to be some of the best in the game and I love how badass he is. Great character, great companion. - Cosmic558
Boone is a realistic badass, he's not a tryhard MORONIC BRUTE like fawkes who says pseudo intellectual book quotes, and has 9,000 HP while carrying a overpowered laser minigun, but a real normal veteran with a troubled past, and a sniper rifle, who can follow you along anywhere without taking all your kills and babbling none-sense, hell he rarely even talks!
I don't think anybody can replace ED-E, he is definitely the best
How exactly is boone better?
ED-E is so awesome. He doesn't judge you on your choices in game, he carries a lot of weight, he has a great weapon and the best part is he has his own battle and victory music.

Nick is amazing. I love his noire detective persona and his ability to hack terminals and pick locks saved a lot of time. He also helps you find your son and is all around a great guy. - Cosmic558
Ok, the second you purchase this guys contract, you know your in for a treat. Charon is the most badass companion in my opinion. His deafualt weapon is the Combat Shoutgun which is already a very good weapon, He is no karma requirement so he doesn't judge you but I think the best thing about him is his personality. He has to serve anyone who has his contract and doesn't judge you, But if you fire him with evil karma he will attack you because since he is no longer serving you he will act upon his moral beliefs. Just awesome - Cosmic558
I love all the Dogmeats but the Fallout 3 version will always be my favorite. - Cosmic558
This is probably the first companion you will recruit in the whole series and he is a great first impression. Ian is a pretty basic companion, his best weapon type is pistol but he has great accuracy and I think he is the best companion in the original like game. - Cosmic558
He's annoying but very funny sometimes
Veronica is such a cool and underrated companion. She's quirky, really cares about and wants to help her family, the Brotherhood of Steel, and has some pretty cool abilities. Did I forget to mention that she is bangin'?
This guy is hilarious. His dialogue when in combat is so funny. His weapons are a plasma rifle and a flame thrower which is already a huge bonus. He can heal himself without stimpacks. The only problem is he has neutral karma but that can be overlooked because of how cool he is. - Cosmic558
Sarge is awesome! I’m surprised he’s not higher on this list he’s very funny and comical he kicks butt and has saved mine tons of time I love this dude :D
This guy is a hassle to get but he is so worth it. - Cosmic558
Now I put Arcade down here because while I love his character and side quest he's combat is mediocre. Arcade's default weapon is the Plasma Defender which could be used effectively but Arcades range is sub par compared to his weapon. His perk is useless. However I think he is and amazing character. His side quest is so awesome and fun, he is kind of paranoid but is always eager to help and his dialogue is great. So I still consider him a good companion and like using him. - Cosmic558
Butch suffers from the same problems that Arcade has because he is a good character but his combat is meh. His deafault weapon is the 10mm Pistol which isn't to bad but could be better. But his biggest problem is that you unlock him to late in the game for him to actually be powerful. Now character wise he is great I love his dialogue and his confidence, I think his haircut ability is nice but the best thing about him is the Tunnel Snakes. "Tunnel Snakes Rule." - Cosmic558
I know, I know "An other settlement needs your help." is so annoying, but I find that combat wise Preston is pretty good. His deafault weapon is the Laser Musket which is a pretty good weapon early on in the game, his perk is really use and helpful also, I love his outfit. So honestly I'm going to let his dialogue slide. - Cosmic558
