Fallout: New Vegas Achievements

Ol' Buddy Ol' Pal

Recruit any companion.  

The easiest companion to pick up is Boone. He will be found in Novac, and will join you after you complete his quest, One For My Baby. There will be no skill check if you had evidence in the quest, but you must pass a Speech 55 check if you had no evidence. Since you'll pass through Novac and the quest is extremely short, he's an easy choice. Also refer to The Whole Gang's Here for a full list.

The easyist companion I found was Veronica at the 188 Trading post,
just talk to her. No Quest (Boone), no High Repair Skill (ED-E) and no Super Mutant assault (Raul).

Cass (Mojave Outpost) - Complete the You Can Depend On Me quest for McLafferty

ED-E (Primm) - Pump some skill points into repair or science, or just find the parts required. Scrap electronics, sensor modules etc

Boone (Novac) - Complete One For My Baby

Veronica (188 Trading Post) - Just talk to her, I think it helps if you're on the good side of the Brotherhood or NCR

Rex (Freeside) - Complete G.I. Blues and start Nothin' But A Hound Dog

They're the ones I have so far, but I've also found Arcade Gannon in the Old Mormon Fort in Freeside. Can't get him though, you need 75 speech!
