EM Weapon Systems
Best Crew Companion.
At number one, I had to have Sarah Morgan as my favorite companion. Not only do Sarah’s skills include proficiency in laser weapon equipment, but they also include proficiency in astrodynamics.
In a game that has space travel and exploration as one of its main focuses, I find this skill essential to the player. Players might also recognize Sarah’s voice as she is the voice of Starfield’s trailers.
Sarah Morgan is also a firm believer in intelligent life in the stars and is determined to find evidence of such. The player may discover a strange artifact to pursue this storyline in their playthrough.
To recap, Sarah Morgan is great as she covers a wide variety of skills for the player, including laser weapons, astrodynamics, great knowledge of Botany, and great leadership skills as well.
Has a love for exploration.
Can get in the way during Critical Moments.
Might react negatively to certain situations.
Best Companion For Combat.
While Sarah Morgan provided good Astrodynamics for your ship, Sam Coe offers great piloting skills, and this will give the player a massive boost in performance in space.
Sam Coe offers great rifle certification and knowledge of geology and payloads. This makes it so the player can collect extra resources when exploring different areas of the galaxy.
Despite his tough looks and good rifle proficiency, Sam generally dislikes conflict and will need to be persuaded to fight.
Provides significant support during combat.
A vital member of your crew.
Conflicts with other companions.
Dislike his Lineage.
Potential Temporary Displeasure.
Best Companion For Ship Crew.
Why did I Choose Marika Boros?
With her expertise in Space Combat, Marika is my go-to companion during my space travels.
Marika brings a different skill set as compared to my first two picks. While they focused more on space maneuverability and space combat, Marika Boros is an exceptional pick for combat-related endeavors.
She brings a multitude of combat-related skills, such as Shotgun certification, Ballistics, and particle beam weapon systems. It’s important to realize this combat refers to ground combat, unlike Sarah Morgan, who can help with Space combat.
Marika serves as a great companion to accompany the players while they’re setting out on their expeditions. Her combat expertise comes from the fact that she was a Freestar Ranger before.
Variety of Weapons Proficiency.
Limited Ballistic Skills.
Not suitable for Leadership roles.
Lack of Romance options.
Best Companion For Ship.
Why did I Choose Barrett?
Barrett is a very supportive companion who can help fix your ship through his engineering expertise.
Meet Barrett, an adventurous explorer who thrives on excitement and enjoys the company of cheerful partners. He also possesses scientific expertise in Starship Engineering. Barrett’s proficiency in engineering makes him an invaluable addition to your ship during space battles.
He excels in operating Particle Beam weapon systems, Robotics, and Gastronomy, further enhancing your capabilities in various aspects of your spacefaring journey.
Expertise in Starship Engineering.
Knowledge of Particle Beam Weapon Systems.
Lack of effectiveness in close-range combat.
Not always immediately available.
Underdeveloped Romantic Scene.
Dependent on Specific Assignments.
Potential for Moral Conflicts.
Best Companion For Outposts.
Why did I Choose Andreja?
Andreja is one of the best companions when it comes to stealth or pickpocketing.
Andreja is one of the companions players can meet and is a fairly mysterious character. She is a character that mostly operates solo, finds it hard to trust people, and works more so in the shadows.
This makes her perfect for stealth gameplay, and her skills further benefit the player. The skills include Stealth and theft, which are great for general stealth exploration.
Additionally, her other two skills aid her in both ground and space combat with Energy Weapon Systems and Particle Beam proficiencies.
Dependent on Player Interactions.
Potential for Confusion.
Lack of Detail.
Why Others Were Not Chosen?
AndromedaKepler: Her lack of skills and the high cost of recruitment is why I do not prefer her as my companion.
BettyHowser: She is not a potential option for Romance, and Betty has stayed a former bounty hunter which can lead to conflicts in her story.
Ezekiel: He is available for a limited time during gameplay, so you do not get to spend more time with Ezekiel.
AmeliaEarhart: Lacks Personal Development and her interaction options are restricted, as she can’t be romanced.
VASCO: This is not a perfect companion for combat, as VASCO dislikes violence, so he lacks the aggressiveness required during a fight.
My Verdict On The Best Companions
Starfield can get lonely, but luckily companions exist to accompany them through their journey. In my opinion, I covered those companions that have more interaction with you and have greater benefits. For instance, Barrett is your best ship companion, as he will help you fix the ship in need and give proper instructions. Similarly, Sam Coe offers great support during combat, as he leads the way and knows how to win. Following the pattern, all the companions I have listed are top notch and I advise you to consider them in your gameplay.
