Notes

  • This is the only companion perk which can be unlocked via leveling up, the rest must be gained by earning the companion's respect.
  • Dogmeat already automatically tries to hold enemies without the need for rank 1 of this perk. However, you do not get bonus VATS accuracy, which is the true benefit for the first rank of this perk.
  • This perk is unique in offering actual damage reduction instead of a set amount of damage resistance.
