Starfield – Companions Guide

Companions

Starfield allows the player to have a single active Companion but an unlimited number of Crew. Each companion offers a set of skills which benefit the player, e.g. The companion Sarah offers 3 in Astrodynamics, which means that when she is assigned to the players Starship, you will have an invisible +3 boost to your Astrodynamics skill.

The most notable companions with the best dialog and skills are all from the Constellation storyline. There are a bunch of other companions however, they offer less bonuses to less useful skills and should only be hired after all the main ones are collected.

You can only have 1 active companion, 3 on your ship and 3 per outpost with no perk points allocated to the associated skills. You can increase both the companion ship and companion outpost count via those perks.

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
