Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • PCIcon pc.png As of patch 1.2, Live & Love still has no effect on Cait, Curie, Dogmeat, MacCready or Preston Garvey. The player still gains bonuses that apply, but these companions do not. [verified]
  • PCIcon pc.png The bonus experience from rank 8 does not apply when traveling with Dogmeat. [verified]
  • PCIcon pc.png Issues 2 and 9 do not work unless the player also has issue 3. [verified]
  • PCIcon pc.png Issues 2 and 9 do not stack. Robotic companions will still only deal +5% damage.[verified]
  • PCIcon pc.png Issue 5 conflicts with the third rank of Party Boy/Party Girl, only receiving +3 Luck while under the effects of alcohol. Needs testing of perk order, whether to avoid being intoxicated as you pick up the magazine. It may also not work at all or with specific companions regardless of the Party Boy/Girl perk. It's not fixed in patch 1.3. [verified]
