Deacon is a character that will keep you amused and entertained. This character does have his flaws though. If you can get past his habitual lying and the fact that he’s not the most trustworthy in every situation, he is a funny guy. Deacon is good with a sniper rifle so he’ll help you out more in long-range fighting scenarios. He brings a few things to the table you might find useful. His cloak and Dagger perk increases the duration of stealthy boys by forty percent and sneak damage by twenty percent. Perhaps just don’t depend on him to be a good spy and you’ll get along famously.
4. John Hancock
If you’re partial to stylish companions, then Hancock may be a suitable companion. He’s by far the most stylish. Just check out his fancy attire. He has some character traits that you won’t be able to resist. His introductions might leave a lot to be desired, but when it comes down to brass tacks, he’s one of the most loyal companions in the game. He’ll hassle you at first, and he can be over the top in abrasiveness, but there’s another side to him if he’s your friend. You’ll see that from time to time, you just need to look past his frequent outbursts and get to know him. Hancock is a good choice for a companion. He will always have your back. You might even be entertained by his methods now and then.
Sometimes it’s better to go with a super mutant for your companion. Strong is a companion that comes with the highest base HP with 70 special stats. He’s got superior strength and although it seems unlikely by the looks of him, his agility is also high. If you’re a good friend to him his growing affection will result in an increase in damage you can inflict with melee weapons when you’re health is low. We’d say that’s a nice perk to acquire for developing a solid relationship with a friend. Every companion has its downside, and Strong has his share. He can only wear super mutant armor so normal armor won’t work for him. That’s not such a bad flaw. The rest is all good. Give him a Super Sledge and this powerful companion will plow the field ahead of you, making your enemies a part of history. He’s also heavy and he makes a great mule. Strong may not be the most attractive companion, but he’ll grow on you. The goal is to make sure that you grow on him as well.
2. Nick Valentine
Nick Valentine is a name that we see frequently mentioned in forums about which companions are the best. Although he’s not the number one for everyone, he is for some, so we’ll keep him at number two. Nick is a robot that has a heart of gold and a soul to boot. He acquired the latter from somebody else, but he’s in possession of it, so we dare you to try to take it from him. Nick can always use a little more help with his private investigations. He’s one of the few pure persons in the game. Nicky is a charming robot. Another good thing about Nick is that he knows his way around the Commonwealth. Just look at those piercing eyes of his. Nick is an excellent choice to pick as a companion to keep you company. He can help keep you from getting lonely/ Good old Nick Valentine is always willing to try to give you a hand with whatever it is you need.
