    +figieface Exactly what I was thinking. He’s proven to be quite devastating in certain situations. Perhaps he might not hold his own if things get more intense, though I wonder…

    Codsworth “loves” when you work on power armor. I’m unsure if he likes when you add weapon mods or apparel mods but I think he likes those too.

      Even when he wasn’t my companion but just roaming in Sanctuary Hills, he can ‘love’ me working on one of my many power armors when close enough…

    Codsworth has saved my butt on more than one occasion, I actually think he’s pretty good in a melee fight when surprised by irradiated creatures (although a bit less helpful in a ranged firefight, he was more helpful than Dogmeat overall), he’s a good companion for roaming the wastes. Plus he often gives you random purified water when you talk to him.

      When you take the minute men to the sanctuary, he will still be roaming around. Just talk to him and ask him to join you. 🙂
