It's a Fallout feature.

The image is so tiny I can't see anything and yet if you'll make it into an engine that Reloaded works then Kilgore would be most likely more than happy to introduce it even in this session.

Just give them single shot weapon and no more friendly fire.

yea but they get 150%+ in big guns and the only big gun that won't do AOE damage is the Bozar sniper rifle.

But it has a burst as well so they might use burst with it and to get a bozar would be too rare.

LSW? Rocket Launcher?

If you don't know LSW is meant to perform like bozar, has single shot and burst mode, but burst mode doesn't scatter as much bullets compared to avenger.

thats why most of people chose EW companions (with plasma/laser rifle usually)

my companion was using a m60 which is the best cheapest/easy to make good lmg

i wish we could set different keys to use commands for each companion like left Alt to give commands to companion 1 so i could tell them to move to x then fire on x

no way would i give them a Rocket Launcher i tell my team to kill enemy then the enemy moves to me then my team fires a rocket at the enemy which is normally 1 hex away from me i die.

My companion has shot an m60 point blank at my other companion just to shoot the enemy 4+ hexes away from him(the companion that died).

the companion should have moved then shot the enemy.

i wish companions would change from a gun to melee if the enemy was weak as what i said above about killing my companion with an m60 point blank was to kill a rat with 8hp

All I can say is learn to micro them or give them single shot weapons. I doubt most of your suggested changes will happen.

Try regrouping immediately when spawning in an encounter, if you get shot, stop all actions and regroup again and tell them to attack when they're not in each others way. Best way is to try forming a triangle with with your companions facing the enemies.

I used to play with companions a lot. I was a pioneer when it came to using them in PvP, oh man I miss how my gatling companions hexed a player around a corner xD....before everyone started the new meta with 3x Rocket companions and slave swarms :/
