So, the roundabout way of unchecking the “Show Companion Helmet” box. I know, I know, I didn’t make the game, I’m just the messenger here.

        Glad to help! Here’s hoping they let you un-equip helmets from companions with a patch in the near future, too.

    I could see an update coming for this. It’s an odd feature in the game.
