Top 5 Companion Mods for Fallout 4

These companion mods for Fallout 4 will keep you company in the wasteland.

The two biggest improvements to Fallout that Bethesda’s latest iteration of post-apocalyptic RPG are settlements and companions. Modders have been hard at work at addressing many aspects of the game but by far their best creations have been for the companions.

While Fallout 4 already has amazing existing followers the community has brought to life new ones as well as reskins and customizations for existing ones.

Here are five of our favorites

Red Cattle Dog Dogmeat

Many people love Dogmeat. After all, he’s pretty hard to hate. He even plays with teddy bears. But wouldn’t it be great if he could be your favorite type of dog? At least that’s what some modders have been thinking. 7iger’s red cattle dog mod does exactly that, transforming the german shepard into cattle dog.

The textures are high quality and he looks great. Now where’s the pomeranian or the chihuahua one?


Creature Follower

Maybe you didn’t like any of the existing companions (but really, you could at least like Nick Valentine. what are you, a member of the Brotherhood?) If that’s the case, this great mod allows for nearly any creature to become a companion. Yes, this means you can have your own Deathclaw or Yao Guai that follows you around and kills a lot of people.


Recruit any NPC as Follower

Have you ever seen a settler that you just wanted to follow you around? Or maybe you like someone in Diamond City? With this mod, you can recruit any NPC as a follower. it makes perfect sense if you think about it, after all you save the lives of these settlers and you build up the wasteland. why wouldn’t they want to follow you around?


Pack of Dogs

What’s better than one Dogmeat?

If you said two Dogmeats, you’re wrong. It’s actually four Dogmeats. with this mod by NarcoticsDrugs, you are followed around by a pack of dogs.



So maybe you’re not a dog person, and maybe you don’t want a Deathclaw. But if you’re crazy for cats, this mod’s got you covered. With the Catmeat follower mod, your companion is now one of those cats from Abernathy farm. Maybe next they’ll add an ability to throw the cat at somebody.


The modding scene is only going to get better as the game progresses — after all look at how Skyrim turned out. It’s always amazing to see what the community can do for an already great game.
