    I found Preston very useful in Fallout 4... Makes for a good distraction tool and can help fight enemies while you're busy with healing. (Especially if it's one of the "Legendary" enemies.)

    How exactly is Preston useless? He is a good companion in Fallout 4 and doesn't really deserve the number 1 spot. If anything, the Adoring Fan should be number 1, he literaly just chases you while doing absolutely nothing.

    Swap magicarp out for metapod I think is his name is way worse because all he does is harden. Also with Preston garvey I just send him to a part of the map I only visit once to clear it out after I take everything he has including his clothes then sell what I got from him

    Yeah, I remember back years ago on the SNES playing as Toad in Super Mario Bros 2. I got as far as level 1-3 and then reset and switched to Luigi.
    Preston Garvey... Yeah, I liked the idea of the character but I felt like there was so much more to do with him. How about avenging Quincy? Plenty of dialogue options in that scenario alone.

    So late to the chat...but, I gave Sheva the high powered rifle with a major fire delay. She was a nice long range sniper (like enemy is only a dot in my field of vision). Barely ate through my ammo. I didnt have to worry about accidentally knifing Sheva, which brings me to the even more useless character: vanilla Ashley from RE4.

    • Snuggle Rex
      Snuggle Rex 4 месяца назад

      The only thing I think she was good for was sniping. I would give her a sniper and she'd go absolutely ballistic, which was, obviously, very helpful. That, and maybe being a backpack (my mom watched me play the entire game for...reasons, and I would constantly yell "Sheva!" as angrily as possible, to the point that three years later, it's still an inside joke). Otherwise, she's attract enemies in situations I think they were intending us to sneak through, and had the survival skill set of a sponge. "Sheva, maybe stop walking into my line of fire?" "Sheva, could you stop standing aimlessly by while I get my ass blown off?" "Sheva, can you get the fuck up here instead of down there with the enemies?" "Sheva, if you make all these blind bitches know we're here, I will-- and great! You-You just did it!"

    Okay here's how to make a useless character redeemable:
    Make it so they're useless 99.99% of the time but for the .01% of the time they ARE USEFUL, they're really useful. Like get the main characters out of serious jam useful.
    For example look at Tokepi from Pokemon, just sits in Misty's arms and says its name over and over again right? Well, not quite. See there were a couple episodes of Pokemon where Ash's group just couldn't defeat Team Rocket when Tokepi secretly did its psychic move defeating Team Rocket.видео.html
    So yeah technically this would make a USELESS character _slightly_ useful it still makes them redeemable.

    The COD one is wrong. if you think they don't do anything, then you don't pay attention or play on a difficulty higher than very easy. Your team will kill everything if you let them, and are useful in pushing forward. Your character simply need to move forward, and your team will advance and then kill everything in that section..Move forward, let them kill. move forward, let them kill. And the best and fastest way to complete a COD game on veteran.
    W@W was one of the worse for lobbing grenades at you, rather then adding real difficulty and one shot can kill. Your team is extremely valuable, and all you need to do is move forward and take cover.
