Which Companion is the Best in Starfield

Every Starfield Companion comes with a set of skills they can use to assist you in fight, exploration or Outpost management. Not all Companions are the same though. Some are more fleshed out with more and better skills. A few Companions also offer you the chance to learn more about their past and eventually romance them. The number of skills a companion has and how fleshed out they are, depends on the Companion category they belong. In total there are twenty-eight(28) Companions in Starfield that are divided in five different categories:

  • Constellation Companions
  • Optional Story Companions
  • Trait Companions
  • Hireable Companions
  • Generic Crew-Members

The Constellation Companions(Andreja, Barrett, Sam Coe, Sarah Morgan, Vasco) are the more fleshed out Companions in Starfield, with more and better skills. Also only the Constellation Companions(all except Vasco) offer the ability to develop a romance with them. So it is logical that one of them will be the Best Companion you can get in Starfield. If you wish to learn more about them and where you can find each one, you can read my Starfield Companions Guide!

S Tier Companions in Starfield

It is not a surprise that almost all Constellation Companions belong to this category! They have the best and most advanced skills and they are great to have around when fighting enemies. Andreja can deal massive damage with her Particle Beams skill but can also accompany you with ease if you wish to play a more stealthy character. Sam Coe is another flexible fighter to have around while Sarah Morgan is good at combat but can also assist you in exploration with her Astrodynamics skill. Vasco finally can assist you in combat but is the Ship related skills it has that put the Constellation robot Companion in S tier!

A Tier Companions in Starfield

Despite being a Constellation Companion, Barrett does not offer as much as the other four. He is good to have in your ship thanks to his skills though. Amelia Earhart, Autumn MacMillan, Lyle Brewer, Marika Boros and Simeon Bankowski are amazing Combat oriented companions! You can bring along any of them when expecting to fight plenty of enemies and they will not fail to impress you. Depending on your preferred play style, each one of those combat Companions can complement your Starfield Build well! Andromeda Kepler, Erick Von Price, Ezekiel, Gideon Aker and Omari Hassan on the other hand are great Companions to have around in your ship when traveling or fighting hostiles. Jessamine Griffin is a more flexible Companion that can assist you as a Ship crew member but also as a partner in Crime if you are playing a Thief in Starfield!

B Tier Companions in Starfield

The Adoring Fan, Mathis Castillo, Betty Howser, Dani Garcia and Moara Otero can offer some assistance in space or the ground but their skills are not good enough to be your first option. Supervisor Lin and Rafael Aguerro are decent Companions to park in one of your Outposts and assist you in harvesting resources or crafting. Finally Sophia Grace offers some assistance in combat and can complement Stealth Builds in Starfield but her Lasers Combat skill is not high enough to belong in a better Tier.

They might have a nice story to tell or are enjoyable to have around but as far as gameplay efficiency goes they are not the best to bring along!
