Companions are allies in Fallout 4 who accompany the player on quests. There are several different companions available to the player, and they can be obtained via various methods.

  • Companions can be given commands and the player can trade equipment with them.
  • Companions also grant special Companion Perks which are unlocked after raising their Affinity.
  • Raising their affinity also unlocks options for Romance if the option is available.
  • Companions have infinite ammo for the weapons they begin with. However if you give them a new weapon, they must be supplied with ammo.
  • When released from duty, companions may be assigned to one of your Settlements where they will remain until you need to enlist them once more.

The following are a list of companions in Fallout 4 and the conditions for obtaining their alliance:
