Best Fallout 4 Companions

Fallout 4 is a great game and here are some great companions in the game.
The Top Ten
1 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.

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

He's the most original, unique, well written companion in the game

2 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.

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

Dogmeat can have the advantages of both lone wanderer and companionship

3 Piper Wright

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.

All other companions are non-human robots/Super Mutants/Ghouls or veterans/mercenaries. Piper is just a journalist. Looks cute. Sounds cute. Piper is bae. Piper is love. Piper is life.

4 Codsworth

So many memories with this guy. At the start when I was terrified by ghouls and any step would wake them in that city and I was stuck on some stairs he went ahead with his flamethrower and buzzsaw and saved me with no help needed. Sure he judges but this robot has more character than anyone else - he's family.

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.

This Mr. Handy robot has been waiting for you for 200 years. That makes him loyal as hell! Also he's pretty tough. He's almost as tough as a Mr. Gutsy. He also gives you purified water and sometimes tells corny jokes...

5 Paladin Danse

Strong offense and defense. Interesting back story and situation. Hot manly dude you can romance. Down side is that he's too devoted to the BoS but it's understandable as they are the only possible real memory he ever had.

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.

Just a absolute tank with a Gatling laser

6 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.

The most badass ghoul ever! He instantly greets you by stabbing a guy giving you trouble!

Huh... I never thought I'd be sexually attracted to ghoul before. Interesting.

7 Cait

I feel she is kind of overrated. I mean, I don't hate her. She is definitely a sympathetic character. She has a tragic backstory and I can tell WHY people would love her. However, then we get to her attitude so at the same time, she becomes hard to like at the same time. I like her, but she wouldn't be my first choice.

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.

8 MacCready

Tough choice between him, deacon and Hancock, but MAcready is the best companion. He might not have all good morals, but he's great in combat and so sweet after romancing him.

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

Great personality, looks bad ass in a tux, and is overall a perfect companion.

9 Curie

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

She is just so adorable! Then when she becomes a synth, you fall in love with her!

She has a sexy accent, despite being a synth.

10 Deacon

He is the most mysterious character and I love him. We don't know if he's a synth or a human. We don't know his true origin and backstory. We don't know how he changes disguises so damn quick. That's what I love about him. I love his humor too.

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

How is Deacon below Preston, Deacon is my third favourite

The Contenders
11 Preston Garvey

If he didn't keep nagging you about Settlements, then he would be higher in my list. I do love his boy scout attitude. He believes in peace. However, he is not my number one because even though a peace-minded boy scout companion is good, you gotta show brutality in this war-torn world. He hates everything you do that's brutal and taking chems when they actually help you in battle.

Being a good person in nice, but being a real definition of a Goodie-Two-Shoe is boring. The guy should had needed his braking points or flaws to give more depth.

12 Travis Miles

Okay so maybe he isn't a companion, but how many other characters do you know to have such a great taste of music?

13 Strong

Strong has his moments. There are times where he can be hilarious and sometimes, it is pretty cool to have a tank-sized beast companion along the road but most of the time, he can make me feel very uncomfortable.

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

Strong is the funniest companion I've ever seen

14 X6-88

He is npt bad but he weapon sucks plus not many people side with institute

He's so bad he shouldn't even be on this list.

He is ok not the best but ok I mean his weapon is ok he is kind of cool

15 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.

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

17 Ada

The ONLY one who doesn't criticise you for carrying junk

18 Mama Murphy
