Traveling with ED-E has given you a chance to bond with him, unlocking five ranks of potential bonuses.— In-game description

Camarader-E is a companion perk in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road gained while ED-E is a companion.


The Camarader-E perk has five levels and each circuit board you collect towards the completion of the ED-Ecated quest gives ED-E a bonus upgrade. There are a total of five eyebot upgrade circuit boards in destroyed eyebots found throughout The Divide. Each rank of this perk has a different effect; while ED-E is in the player character's party, they both gain:

  • Rank 1 - Weapon condition bonus (daily 25% weapon condition repair dialogue option).
  • Rank 2 - Energy cells or Microfusion cells manufacture (daily dialogue option, receive 20 of the chosen type)
  • Rank 3 - Increased DT (+2 DT for both player and ED-E)
  • Rank 4 - Damage Bonus (+5 beam weapon damage for both player and ED-E, affects the same weapons as Laser Commander)
  • Rank 5 - V.A.T.S. Attack Bonus (+5% V.A.T.S Targeting for both player and ED-E)

The player character is also able to pass Repair and Explosives checks with ED-E:

  • 35 Repair - Improves ED-E's repair function, allowing it to restore a weapon by 35% condition
  • 65 Repair - Allows ED-E to manufacture 35 energy ammo once a day instead of 20.
  • 35 Explosives - Allows ED-E to manufacture 35 flamer fuel instead of energy ammo once a day.
  • 65 Explosives - Allows ED-E to manufacture three satchel charges instead of energy ammo once a day.



This perk is valid for both the ED-E encountered in the Divide and the one in the Mojave Wasteland.

Behind the scenes

The name of this perk is a play on the word "camaraderie", defined as the close friendship in a group of friends or teammates, namely between the Courier and ED-E.
