Man's Best Friend is a skill in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel. It was also going to appear in the canceled Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel 2.


You acquire a canine companion to aid you in your battles named Dogmeat. It appears for the first time when you reach a save point.


  • It works well in Chapter 2 and isn't bad for Chapter 3, packing a nice punch with its attack. It follows you all the time and it may divert enemies into running toward it rather than you.
  • Unfortunately, Dogmeat may run right into explosives, killing itself in a fate similar to the original Dogmeat in the Mariposa Military Base in Fallout. However, It will respawn when you reach the next save point.
