If there's one thing that gamers from all over the world love, that's definitely stupid tweaks for their video games. Fallout 4 Creature Follower Mod is, without a doubt, one of them. It's a mod for the fourth installment of Bethesda's saga of RPG titles, Fallout. In this sequel, we'll take on the role of the last survivor of Shelter 111, a dystopia destroyed by a nuclear war. Our goal is very simple: to survive to see a new day and rescue our child kidnapped under our nose. For such purpose, we'll have to deal with looters, arrange our shelters, build machines, and fight against bandits and all sorts of creatures and animals in the surroundings of this apocalyptic version of Boston.

A wide range of creatures to choose from.

In Fallout 4, we can mingle with up to twelve different characters, including Deacon, Hancock, Cait or Nick Valentine, as well as our loyal Dogmeat. But a user called Botlanner thought that a dog was too ordinary for this recreation of the end of the world, and decided to spice up the game with his own personal touch. That's why he created the mod Creature Follower, thanks to which we can swap our companion for many other creatures such as a mutant gorilla or bear, a cat, or something slightly more serious: monsters such as Behemoth or Deathclaw, and even warfare robots. All of them will help us out during the battle and keep us company, but we won't be able to interact with them.

But the best thing about Botlanner's mod, available for the PC version of Fallout 4, is that these additional companions don't occupy the space of a follower so we can take them with us together with Dogmeat, and even get hold of several of them at once.

How to use Fallout 4 Creature Follower Mod

To make use of this game modification we'll have to download it and install it following the Nexusmods steps.

  1. Step 1: Once in the game, just search for an unanimated object to interact with, such as a traffic cone or a cup of coffee.
  2. Step 2: Now open the command console (~ key) and click on the object in question, showing us its identifier with a series of numbers.
  3. Step 3: Then, just write down the "bat shaun" command ("bat shauncat", for instance) and close the console.
  4. Step 4: Now you've only got to travel around the map, and once it has finished loading, you'll soon see your new companion next to you. And that's it, good luck surviving!
