Do you need all companions alive?
I wonder if you need all companions alive to get an achivement and not if you can get all at the same time by telling them to stay and pick up another? hollowriller - 6 years ago
if you release them most go to the Lucky 38...Boone goes back to the dinosaur...so recruit and let go if you don't like them...my opinion..Boone is about the best along with the dog..however you need granny the super mutant to complete one of the quests..acheivement unlocked Iamsparticus18 - 6 years ago
If a companion dies before you recruit them, like say you accidently launched a mini-nuke at Boone before you have talked to him. No achievement
But you can do what you want with them after you have recruited them and told the companions to go back where you found them or back to the Lucky 38.
To be on the safe side, have all companions be gathered in the Lucky 38. Wigity - 6 years ago
