Loading...

As you roam the Wasteland of the Commonwealth of Fallout 4 , you will find yourself in the company of many companions, AIs as characters. They are originally used to support you during battles and quests, but did you know you can develop a romantic relationship with them ? Okay this at first glance is a completely optional option, but this kind of relationship can give you a lot of benefits and narrative elements . Here is a guide for you to become the Casanova of the Commonwealth!

STEP 1: DO WHAT THEY LOVE TO DO

First of all, in order to develop said relationships with your companions, you must adapt your decisions and actions according to their preferences. By doing this, you will improve their affinities towards you. But depending on the companion, preferences may vary. For example, one companion may love acts of extreme generosity towards others, love to eat human flesh while another may dislike all of these characteristics. Either way, Fallout 4 lets you know whether or not your companion likes what you do. To find out what they think of you, ask them directly for their opinion on your relationships!

STEP 2: FLIRT, FLIRT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE

As your affinities evolve with your companions, they will begin to tell you about their past and how they are feeling. Once a certain level is reached, you will unlock the possibility of flirting with them to gain their affection. Successful flirtation and a persistence in doing what they please will eventually achieve maximum companion-player affinity. Once this level is reached, you will unlock the possibility of starting a romantic relationship. But keep in mind that like any dialogue, flirtation and love require a fairly high level of Charisma (SPECIAL). Put the odds in your favor, use suitable objects and clothing. If your companion refuses your advances, do not despair! Keep flirting until it’s good and he accepts you.

STEP 3: RECLAIM THE BENEFIT OF A RELATIONSHIP

Once you start your romantic relationships in Fallout 4 , you will unlock their special perk which grants you a bonus perk called Lover’s Embrace , which gives you a 15% bonus XP for a limited time. To activate it, you must sleep with your companion in the same bed or right next to it.
