Meet the Folks Who Will Follow You Around in Fallout: New Vegas
In Fallouts 1-3, you could get people to follow you around and help you deal with stuff, such as the things that will try to kill you as you walk around. There are six people who walk on two legs, and there are two who don’t. Pictured above is a 200-year-old cyborg dog named Rex, and below you’ll find pics of the others:
This is Arcade. He’s a doctor, and so when when you’ve got him around, you’ll heal more efficiently.
This is Boone, and, no, I’m pretty sure he’s not voiced by Ian Somerhalder. When you’ve got this bro as your bro, “hostile targets are highlighted whenever the player is actively aiming.” Exciting.
That there is Cass. She’s an alcoholic, I think, because when you’re hanging with her, alcohol has no negative effects, and drinking whiskey gives you the Damage Threshold trait, which makes it so all damage you take is reduced by a certain amount.
That’s Lily, a super mutant who used to be a grandma. With this blue lady, your stealth boys will last three times as long, and your stealth attacks will do 10% more damage.
Here is Raul the mechanic. Raul will make it so your weapons will decay at half the normal pace.
This lady is Veronica, a Brotherhood of Steel scribe’s assistant. Ronnie is so cool that she is a walking workbench, and you can create items you’d normally need a physical workbench for just by talking to her.
And, last, we have ED-E (Eddy). ED-E is a super eyebot with armor and guns and s**t. When you’re with it, ED-E will give you super awareness, and you’ll be able to see detect even cloaked enemies.
There you go. Who you gonna go with? I’m going with Cass, because I’m an alcoholic, and we like to hang with our own.
