    Functions

    In terms of moving you from plot-point to plot-point, companions act as a useful tool that keeps the story going so that the next mission can begin. Each companion you encounter has their own adventures that you can take part in, so make sure that these resources are tapped to enjoy the full journey of your character. Sometimes, making new companions means making news enemies if a relationship goes south at some point in the game.

    Another function of companions is that they can be utilized tactically during battle scenarios. When low on health and faced with a large wave of enemies, providing cover fire before sending in an ally to complete the job will save you from taking damage. Likewise, companions will also set up ambushes that you can execute and provide your character with additional support such as health replenishment.

    Lastly, a companion can be used to help your gameplay proceed more efficiently and enjoyably. By directing your NPCs to carryout extraneous tasks such as doing business at the market or utilizing their crew skills, you can focus on the more exciting missions available around the galaxy. Storymode provides each class with five possible compatriots that can be unlocked, with each of them possessing a necessary support skill to help you succeed throughout the game.
