is it worth giving your companions weapons ? do they run out of ammo really quickly ? wich weapons should i give each follower ?

Yes, it is worth giving your companions weapons. How fast they run out of ammo depends on what type of weapon it is and how much fighting you get into. For suggestions for what weapons the different followers should be equiped with you should probably check the different companions respective pages.

ok so ive got charon and cross and im exploring all the time always gettin bobble heads and fighting all the time im thinking cross with sum serious firepower to supress and charons shotgun to rush maybe ? what weps shud i use and also is there any followers that would be suited to the role of sniper

You're asking what weapons YOUR character should use, right? If thats the case, any you want. As for followers suited to sniping, if you're the one doing the sniping, RL-3 is probably the best as he'll carry any sniper rifles you would use for repairs without the danger of him using them. If you're talking about having a companion equiped with a sniper rifle, Jericho, Charon, and Star Paladin Cross have the highest Small Guns Skills.

no i mean what weapons would charon and cross use if cross was support and charon was close combat

Oh. In that case give Cross a gatling laser and let Charon use his shotgun. BoS Paladin Thumbnail Knight Captain Ski (talk) 13:49, April 13, 2010 (UTC)

ok i got lyk 1500 5mm so ill give her minigun is there any particular reason why she wont wear tesla i gave it to her n she didnt change but she wears t 51b cz i wnt charon in t51b n her in tesla / hellfire is it cz hers is more repaired ?

How repaired is the tesla armor? If the DR is less than 40, she wont change to it. BoS Paladin Thumbnail Knight Captain Ski (talk) 19:10, April 14, 2010 (UTC)

cheers =] can i ask do u know wich NPC has highest repair cz my repair isnt up too much

I believe Crow does after you fully invest in his caravan. Fully invested in, he can repair up to 79%. BoS Paladin Thumbnail Knight Captain Ski (talk) 18:39, April 15, 2010 (UTC)

ohh he dead hehe

since cross has a laser pistol as her default weapon can you give her a unique laser pistol or anything else with the same ammo type do you not need to give her more ?

Actually, the best by far is Haley of Haley's Hardware in Point Lookout. His repair skill matches that of the player by default, but thereafter, every time you visit him his skill jumps by five points (as long as you did not steal the jumpsuit he wears). If you wanted to raise it quickly you could go to him and then fast travel to a far off location within Point Lookout and come back again, rinsing and repeating.
