Good old doggie companion.— Woman's Best Friend, Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel 2

Man's Best Friend is a skill in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel and that was to appear in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel 2, in which it is also referred to as Woman's Best Friend. Skills in these games work like perks do in other Fallout games.


To take the skill, the player must be Level 5.


The player character acquires a canine companion, which in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel is named Dogmeat, to aid in their battles.[1][2] It appears for the first time when upon reaching a save point.

Points requirements
  • 1 Rank : 20 Points


  • The dog itself has a powerful attack and often diverts enemy attention. It will follow the player character all the time.
  • Dogmeat does not acknowledge the presence of explosives, and may kill itself in a fate similar to the original Dogmeat in the Mariposa Military Base in Fallout. However, it will respawn upon reaching the next save point.
