Starfield: All Companions And Crew Mates

starfield best traits

Starfield, like all Bethesda action RPG games, allows you to partner up with all companions and crew mates.

These companions can provide extra assistance when roaming in space and are good company to have, particularly if you dock your ship at an unknown location.

Here are all of the Companions and Crew Mates in Starfield.

  • Skills: Geology 1 and Outpost Engineering 3
