Starfield Companions

Companions are an important part of your Journey in Starfield and they will help you deal with enemies but also manage your Spaceship and Outposts! Companions will offer you their expertise and assist you in every aspect of the game. Each Companion comes with their own set of skills, as well as a unique story line to progress and the ability to develop romance with them! Companions have always been a part of Bethesda Games but in Starfield they are more important than ever! If you wish to know which Companion is the Best in Starfield, you can read my Companions tier List!

How Many Companions are there in Starfield

There are around twenty-eight(28) named Companions that can join your crew! Five of them are members of Constellation and the most fleshed out Companions.
