What do you guys think are the best weapons for your companions? Typically it goes like this for me.
Arcade: To be honest I just left him with his default weapon. I imagine giving him a Gauss Rifle or the YCS/186 would make him deadly though.
Boone: All American and a Shishkebab (So when he does the flip around weapons thing he has something useful.)
Cass: Hunting/Riot Shotgun (She eats through ammunition with the Riot Shotgun at stupid ranges where she doesn't even hit the target.)
Lily: I gave her Oh Baby! until I realized that it got damaged ALOT and she dropped it. Then I gave her a Thermic Lance.
Raul: Ranger Sequoia (I just hate that ammo for that is hard to find and expensive and giving him it leaves less for me.)
Veronica: Saturnite fist super-heated (Although I'm not sure she benefits from my Pyromaniac perk...) --- Son, Vespa's are like fat girls, their fun to ride but you don't want your friends to see you on one.--My dad
I've toyed with the idea of giving them something better than their default but then I have to keep them stocked in ammo which annoys me.
I did give Raul A Light Shining in Darkness and about 500 ammo when we wiped out the Deathclaw construction site which worked well enough I guess though me and EDE did most of the work and he only had about 200 ammo after all was said and done. --- It's like racism, except to only one person. -Todasmile It's tough never being right. - Eric Shinseki
I usually give Raul a Hunting Revolver or (if I can find an extra one) a Ranger Sequoia, to take advantage of his Old Vaquero perk. Might give him the Medicine Stick next time I play through, though. --- Do not lend or make illegal copies of this post.
