Fallout 4 Companion Perks – Who Are You Adventuring With?



Whether you’re starting out, or a veteran of the wasteland, this Fallout 4 Companion Perks guide will help you figure out who to choose to trapse the wasteland with!

Fallout 4 has been out a hot minute. The 2015 title is Bethesda’s latest single-player entry into the ever-popular series. Fallout 76 may not have stuck the landing, but that doesn’t take away from Fallout 4’s improvements on Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. One of these improvements was the perks system implemented throughout the game. Another great addition to the game is companion perks! Who you have with you isn’t just for fun, it can actually help you out in the wasteland.

Fallout 4’s companions are helpful in a fight, in more ways than one! They increase a number of stats and give you a few extra bonuses, too. However, they aren’t permanent and you can only have one at a time. So… Choose wisely. There are other bonuses you can get in Fallout 4, though.
