    Are you kidding me Codsworth is a beast in battle, he’s more powerful and damaging than most companions

  2. S

    +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.

    1. B

      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…

      He loves when u work on weapons 2

    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.

      Codsworth also has that flamethrower which helps when going through buildings.

    How can I get him to be a companion ols

    1. D

      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. 🙂

      Sadly though as in all Fallout games, you have to leave your dog.

      1. F

        Theres a mod that allows you to have dogmeat and anothe companion with you. I think its like “dogs best friend” or “everyones best friend”. Its very helpful fir thise situations where you have three groups of different enemies coming at you lol

  6. D

    Codsworth loves when you mod pool cues and walking canes

      and Baseball bats

    i feel sorry for codsworth anyone else?

    1. A

      He has been just Sittin there waiting for 200 years for you to come back and if my game is anything to go by, he waits another couple of years while you take tons of other companions with you on a quest against the institute and only when you finished and get bored you come back and take him with you.

      1. T

        Am I the only one that went for right after I talked to the Minutemen?

  8. R

    No I grabbed Codsworth, too. After I found how much Dogmeat likes shoving me about or agroing NPCs to me, starting battles I didn’t want to be in EVERY time, lol.
