If it instantly cripples, why is it useless against them?I find the Dart Gun is good early on, but when you're a higher level (17 and above), it becomes rather useless. I always keep it handy for Deathclaws (though F3 Deathclaws are kind of easy), but it's useless against human enemies and Super Mutants.
What exactly do companions do? They just follow you around in the Wasteland and help against enemies?Also another tip. If you want a really good companion early on, during the Galaxy News Radio quest, opposite the Museum of Technology is the Museum of History. In there is a ghoul named Charon, and if you do a small quest for his owner, you can get his contract.
I don't really use companions because I'd rather travel alone, but it's a must for newcomers.
