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 somewhat negated by the presence of ED-E, who functions as an even more versatile workbench while retaining his own perks. However, crafting multiple items with Veronica is still faster, as the player merely returns to Veronica's dialogue tree after each craft; however, ED-E ends conversation after each craft, requiring the player to access the companion wheel again.
