Just wanted to see everyone's opinion on what the best type of companion is for the wastes? Even reccomend some mods? Personally o travel with a combat armour wearing, gun slinging teddy bear named rusty closed eyes smile he's really strong and doesn't take radiation.

I always use Willow and Niner, then Russell after I've finished New Vegas Bounties. That's usually pretty late on though because I always do the majority of the main story first, then it is just waiting for the dam to be attacked so logically that is the best time to do anything irrelevant I guess you can say.

If you want some silly dialogues your best option is Veronica.
If you want imbalanced kick-asser take Boone and get gim some good armor.
I personally choose Arcade because his storyline and voice acting are great.

I take Veronica, because she is a walking badass.

I usually travel with Niner because I think he is one badass dude. Also it's fun if have the Dog city Denver mod and both travel there.

The companions i use are as follows

Boone as my Sniper.
Veronica as the Energy Weapon expert.
Arcade as my Medic/Doctor.
Raul as my Engineer.
Rex as my Guard dog with a German Shepherd retexture.
Vincent Vincent as my most trusted companion and well a comedian. lol!
Russel as my Bounty Hunting partner.
A Cyberclaw, Assemblotron and highwayman from the mod RobCo Certified.
Riddick as Hell's messenger and the worst nightmare of the Fiends.
Ulysses as my second Courier.
And last but not least Daryl Dixon as Daryl Dixon

You may ask why i have so many companions well i play on very hard along with Hardcore mode enabled so i need a lot of companions backing me up as almost every fight is a death wish.

I also use Jip Command & Control to give orders to my Squad members, i also use a mod which makes them more smarter like when Raul sees a enemy in Power Armour, he will automatically switch to a RPG or a Smaw it is a usefull feature which i like using.

Later on i will list their armour and equipment i hope you enjoy this. Banana Dance

Except Veronica and Lily, any of the companions waste too much ammo.

Boone blows through .308, .416 and .50 ammo like it was candy. That stuff ain't cheap; especially the .50 BMG.

Gannon, when equipped with any of the Plasma weapons available, blows through EC, SEC and other ammo types as if it grows on trees. Even when the target is only a few feet away he misses. ED-E hits his targets much more often at various ranges.

Raul acts like he has an Ammo Horn a Plenty in his inventory. I've never, ever seen anyone go through 9mm rounds like he does.

Rose of Sharron Cassidy isn't much better than Raul or Boone. She acts

Even with the criticism of each companion regarding ammo usage, the two companions I would pick out of the bunch would Veronica and Boone.

Veronica, when equipped with a Saturnite Fist Super-Heated and good armor tears through just about any enemy like a hot knife through butter (pun intended).

Boone, equipped with the armor he gets when completing his quests and despite him firing off rounds liken to F.I.S.T.O. servicing a customer, is badass when my health goes below 50%.

Either of the two I have taken to the final battle with their status set as non-essential. Both have survived where others haven't.

The companion I always make sure to get is Willow, Vincent, and Boone.

Willow is one of the greatest companion mods ever made for FNV. She is fully fleshed out and you have to earn her friendship to get access to some things. And if you want to be more than BFFs, well, just keep on making her happy.

Vincent is probably one of the coolest companion mods. He may sound crazy, but he actually speaks truth and knowledge. He is also funny as fuck. Shit, I love him so bad that I even spawned him in with Fallout Item Browser while I was playing DUST since I really needed a buddy and he didn't have any quest, so he couldn't be broken.

Boone is one of the best characters in the game. His story good, and he really makes you care for him. He is oozing in badass,

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Delilah. Not that she's the best or anything, but you shouldn't undervalue the benefits of having a doctor on-call.

I agree. I really like his first quest where you find who sold his wife to the Legion. As for gameplay, I enjoy playing with Boone and ED-E, negative is that it makes the game almost too easy considering you can see enemies highlighted in red from so far away.

I'd have to say Boone. I play a stealth character at all times, never did a Power Armour'd, energy weapon playthrough of NV in all the years it's been out. I find that stuff so boring. I like sneaking around with a silenced pistol and a sniper rifle and decking Boone out with a .50cal or an equivalent modded weapon. If I don't see a Deathclaw or a Cazador coming at me, he does.

Honestly, the way the game is set up I'd say small guns all the way.

-You can't really utilize a sniper because combat requires detection.
-Melee companions constantly get in the way.
-NEVER trust companions with explosives!!!!!

If you want a sniping companion set his/hers combat style to ulysses ranged class

If you want a melee companion set his/her combat style to CSsupermutant Melee, this will allow your companion to charge forward like the mutants do.

All else could use default

I found that switching companions with energy weapons to enclaveEnergy combat style Helps improve their crit-chance and aim.

And for some reason the Chinese soldier class works really well with two-hand automatic companions
