So when are we gonna be able to unequip companion helmets?


Recommended Posts

Yes, I know you can make companion helmets invisible in the settings. No, that is not the same as being able to unequip them. What if I want to see helmets on some companions but not others? Why does this even need to be a problem in the first place? It’s such a ridiculously annoying design choice in an otherwise great game.

I am not understanding.  So you can no put a helmet on a companion so this wouldn't become a problem.  Same solution for choosing who has a helmet and who doesn't just put them on someone you want to have one then don't on someone who you don't want to have one.

I don’t see what’s difficult to understand. If I put a helmet on a character and decide that I don’t like how it looks on them, why shouldn’t I be able to take it off? I didn’t even know you couldn’t take helmets off of companions until I ran into the problem. It’s just a really strange design choice. Why shouldn’t you be able to unequip companion helmets? What benefit is there to removing such a simple option?

Well if it is a visual issue as you yourself said there is an option to not see companions helmets but you still get the buffs the piece of equipment provides.  If I had to guess on the why of the decision it would be a time crunch issue as it would be easier to remove the ability to see the graphic then to put in a method to adjust the stats back down to base.  It would be interesting to have heard a developers thoughts at the time of the decision but I doubt anyone in the development could explain the reasoning after release.

Really it is a none issue though as the benefit of not being able to remove the helmet just results in a companion with a stat boost it doesn't lessen the effectiveness of the companion in anyway.

It is an issue. You can't remove the armor from one companion and give it to another. You have to keep an armor set in your inventory or go buy a set for the sole purpose of getting a set you want off a companion.

Well it isn't like it is hard to get drops.  You can also easily get around this by keeping one helm to put on a companion which will place the current helm in your inventory that will allow you to place it on the second companion.  So not a "set" but just a meh helmet you aren't going to use for your build or any of your companions.  I wouldn't of chosen to do the way it is designed but I also don't see it as an issue.

I agree, it's so odd that you can do that for your character and not for the rest of your companions. 

It's clearly an oversight
