This perk allows the player to craft workbench items through Veronica's dialogue without the need for a workbench. The same skill and item requirements apply. It is the only companion perk that requires actively speaking to the companion to use. It is useful for recycling energy weapon ammunition in the field, meaning the Courier has to carry less ammo overall. With Lonesome Road installed, the perk's usefulness is negated by the presence of ED-E, who functions as an even more versatile workbench while retaining his own perks.
