What are Companions?

Companions in The Outer Worlds are not unlike The Companions in Skyrim or in any other RPG that offers you NPC allies. These Companions in the game help you get through tough confrontations with enemies, aside from imparting help through adding some Skill points to yours through their inherent Skills.

These Companions are scattered through the game, and you have to track them down. Read on to find out where they might be, and what conditions you need to do to fulfill to get them.

How Many Companions are in The Outer Worlds?

full party - companions_the outer worlds
The game gives you six Companions, all of which you have to find and convince to come along with you. At most, you will only be able to invite two of them on an adventure with you, or you can go brave all of Halcyon's dangers yourself.

None of the quests to get your companions to join the crew are terribly hard. One of them, Parvati, joins right from the start, while you only have to complete quests for the others to join.
