Fallout New Vegas Companion Boone Location Screenshot
Our Fallout New Vegas Companions Locations Guide shows the total of 8 companions, also known as followers, in the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 game. While you can have all companions, only 1 humanoid and 1 robotic can follow you at a given time. You will need to send the others to Lucky 38 Casino where you can swap companions anytime you want, if you choose to change them up at anytime.

Companions can only die if you are playing Hardcore mode, otherwise they can never die in Normal or any other difficulty modes. If you are playing in Hardcore mode and using companions, make sure to save periodically and before you go into battles.

  • Watch The Latest Gaming News:

  • By just recruiting 1 companion you will unlock the “Ol’ Buddy Ol’ Pal” Achievement worth 10 Gamerscore or a Bronze Trophy.

    By recruiting all 8 of the companions in the game, you will unlock the achievement called “The Whole Gang’s Here” worth 25 Gamerscore or a Silver Trophy.

    Companion Location #1: Craig Boone

    Location: Craig Boone is one of the first companions you should come across near the start of the game. But he does not have to be the first nor may he be the first. There is no specific order.

    Info and Quests: He is very easy to get recruit from the beginning to and he offers a lot of help to you, especially if you have gone ahead and decided to play Hardcore mode. He pairs great with either ED-E or Rex.

    You can find him inside of the dino’s mouth guarding the town of Novac after 9PM. You will need to complete the side quest “One For My Baby” that he gives you by talking to him in order for you to be able to recruit him to follow you.

    Perk: Spotter automatically marks hostile targets in the area, this can help at night in case you do not spot an enemy or to differentiate between a friend or an enemy.

    Upgrade 1: 1st Recon Beret that gives you +1 Perception and +5% Critical Chance. You will get this upon completing the 1st Quest with Boone.

    Upgrade 2: 1st Recon Survival Armor or 1st Recon Assault Armor when you complete the 2nd Quest from Boone. The only difference between this armor is cosmetic, it is your choice as to which one looks better to you.

    Companion Location #2: Rex

    Location: Rex is a robotic companion, 1 of the 2 in the game. You will find Rex inside of The Kings which is located inside of Freeside. There is no specific order in which you have to recruit companions in.

    Info and Quests: You will need to either pay 500 caps or have a Speech skill level of 60 to get past Pacer whom is guarding the door. You will get the 500 caps back right when you talk to The King inside.

    You will first need to complete the Side Quest called “G.I. Blues” from The King before you get the Side Quest called “Nothin’ But A Hound Dog” from him which is how you will get/recruit Rex. It will take approximately 40 minutes to complete both of these Quests, give or take a few minutes.

    Perk: Search and Mark allows you to find unequipped chems, firearms, and ammunition within a short distance among other items such as hidden safes and hollow rocks while you are using the binoculars.
