In New Vegas, there are companions in the game that can aid the character in its journey towards the vast land of the Mojave Wasteland.
Might have to use this when I get it.
odd that most of the companions prefer melee. it would be cool if the robot/dog could shoot lasers or something. i went through the whole story in fallout 3 and played some expansions and never got a single follower. it just never came up or i must have killed or let them get killed.. it would be nice to have a follower this time. one thing that gets to me is the faction system in new vegas. i hate being attacked when i fast travel to a location because i'm wearing the wrong outfit. yeah i should check that before i travel but i don't think about it often enough. i'd prefer it if they just went off of your actions and maybe you would lose charisma or whatever like in fallout 3.
the first game lacked melee a LOT, and I love it. it conserves ammo, and with good agility and a good melee weapon, its perfect against beasts, ghouls and pretty much any enemy without a weapon (about 50% of the battles) I agree though, i'd want my follower to use a distant weapon while I go upclose...i havent gotten one yet but fear for their stupidity ='(
the best ranged follower is Boone. Equip him with a powerful rifle.
boones the best
