View Full Version : Companion Health

06-28-2010, 05:01 PM
I have read a lot of posts from people in here saying that Dogmeat, Fawkes, or another companion has died. I thought this was kind of weird because Fawkes and Dogmeat have never died with me. In fact, they have never been below anything more than 2 lost bars of health. So to test how much health they had, I had Fawkes and Dogmeat stand next to each other while I threw all of my 30 mini nukes at both of them. After I fired all 30 or so, I looked and both of them had lost only 2 bars of health :confused:. Is this is a glitch or do they both really have that much health? I'm not complaining, but it seems a bit weird to be able to survive 30 mini nukes.

I don't know but I've noticed the same thing. Works for me! haha

What level are you? Because Fawkes, Dogmeat, AND Sergeant RL3 level up with the player, which is why their health can get extraordinarily high.

If you downloaded Broken Steel, Dogmeat has 500 HP x your level (15,000 HP max). Fawkes has 230,400 HP max. If you take their high damage resistance into account, 30 mini nukes aren't enough to leave a dent on them.

I knew that their health got higher with my level, but I didn't think it could get that high. I am now a level 30, but I tested this out when I was in the low 20's.

Sweet, I didn't know that they leveled up with me.
