Why did they have to make a certain companion so powerful? Using him seems to remove all challenge from the game.
Boone. I was liking have to use a variety of weapons, since ammo for energy weapons is pretty scarce, but now I don't even have to do anything in combat, most things die before I can even see them, and I'm sitting on a huge stockpile of ammo.
His stats are just ridiculous: 10 strength, 10 perception, 5 endurance, 1 charisma, 3 intelligence, 10 agility, and 6 luck.
At least with Fawkes in Fallout 3, who was similarly overpowered, you had to be far into the main quest. AFAIK Boone is the first humanoid companion most players will find, and very easy to recruit.
