Companion Stats

Your Companion's stats are a bit similar to your own, only you have complete control over how they move in combat - that is governed by their Behavioral stats.

As for the other stats, you don't have complete control over some. However, you can decide what Perks they'll have upon level up.

Behavior

These are a set of commands you can program to have your character either ready to spring into action, be defensive, or be passive and stand back. This is also where you control the range of their attack, or what weapon to use when the enemy gets a little too close.

Derived Stats

This serves as your character's stats from the attributes they have from when they join your character's party. Their Health, Armor rating, and Damage dealt by their Melee and Ranged attacks can be seen here.

Status Effects

This is the section where you see which status effect is currently affecting your Companion's ability to fight, just the same as you.

Skills

Your Companions have their own signature Skills. Some of them may have good Lying skills, while some also possess great Sneaking abilities.

These Skills also come in handy as they have some degree of effect they impose on your own Skills.

Ability

Your Companions each have their own unique Ability. These can be used at an appropriate time, such as when you and your party are besieged by enemies. Proper use of these Abilities can spell the different between 'Game Over' and 'Mission Accomplished.'

Perks

There are some Companion Perks that require your input. When you level up, your Companions also receive points, which you can then use to choose some Perks.

Be mindful that these Perks also determine which Skills of yours are augmented by your Companions!

Companion's Unique Ability

Some of your companions have a Unique Ability you can use in a pinch. Take a look at them below:
