Fallout – Are automatrons counted as “companions” by “Lone Wanderer” perk


So, in Fallout 4 we have the perk "Lone Wanderer", which applies a lot of useful buffs to a character, if he is not accompanied by a companion. And in "Automatron" DLC, we have ability to create custom robots, which follow us and do stuff.

So, my question is – are those robots counted as companions, and will they cease the effect of "Lone Wanderer"?

Best Answer

They count as 'Real' companions, so Lone Wanderer is not compatible. Inspirational is.

The only companions that do not eliminate Lone Wanderer are quest-based temporary followers and the Dog.

I confirmed this myself, in-game.
