All Starfield Companions: Skills & background explained

VASCO, a Companion in StarfieldBethesda

Starfield has around 20 companions who will keep you company as you travel through the vast emptiness of space. We’ve compiled a list of all available Companions in Starfield, including those from Constellation and the crewmates.

Like most Bethesda RPGs, Starfield is a single-player experience meant to be enjoyed alone. The game doesn’t have a multiplayer or even a co-op mode. As such, you’re bound to feel lonely when traveling through a vast universe filled with 1000s of planets. Thankfully, Bethesda has alleviated that issue by adding Companions.

There is a wide variety of Companions in Starfield, each with their own distinct personalities and opinions. This ranges from the romanceable Constellation members to hirable crewmates and even a robot.

Having said that, let’s examine all Starfield Companions, their skills and backgrounds.
