SturmChurro Posted October 26, 2019 Share Posted October 26, 2019 Playing in Supernova difficulty companions are completely, and utterly WORTHLESS. There is no point using them unless you invest HEAVILY into companion perks (leadership). Other than SAM even with the best possible HEAVY armor I can find, they die in just a couple hits. SAM can last in average fights, but might as well put him on passive fighting anything strong, he's dead otherwise. God forbid you try to have a melee companion. Supernova difficulty seems to be exclusively for Lone Wolf, or a pure leadership build. Otherwise, your entire crew will be in the grave. Currently, I have crewmates who are just set to passive or defensive, who follow me around like a non-combat pet from Pillars of Eternity. I have them tag along, because obviously I want them around for the story, and whatever dialogue they might have at locations or to NPC's - otherwise I actually would have taken the Lone Wolf perk. This is absolutely ridiculous, and, in my opinion, companions need a complete overhaul for supernova difficulty. I am not asking for them to be stronger, just not dead after every single damn minor skirmish forcing me to reload, not because I am having trouble, but because they die. Be wary of enemies with aoe, they will die to that too. Primals will kill them pretty much instantly, even if they are on passive if they get hit.
