Does anybody know where I can find out which weapons my companions can use?
(probably an obvious answer, but I was not able to find it)

Thanks!

It will say weapon proficiency: "Weapon Catagory here" and show a basic picture of the weapon it may not be the bottom for you but thats where it shows it for me you may have to look through the list of abilities

Hmmm, I see them for myself, just not for my companion. I'm assuming they also can only use certain weapons.

Yes they can only use certain weapons are you sure your looking at a companion that can even use weapons? for example im a Jedi Sage one of the companions you get comes with your ship which is a droid he cant take weapons he just runs up and punches to be safe if you cant see what their proficiencies are just give them the same type of weapons they already have just stronger versions

Yes, it is Qyzen Fess.
I know he can use techblades (because that is what he was carrying), but I was wondering if I could give him something else to play with.

I found out how to include the companions in the comparative tooltips, but then it seems the weapon proficiency is compared to my own character rather than to my companion.
Or Qyzen is not proficient in the techblade, but can still use it?

Open the skills window (default key P, or upper menu)
Press the "Companion tab".
Scroll to the bottom: you should see a skill called "Weapon proficiency: techblades". That is the only proficiency Qyzen has, so to answer your original question: no, Qyzen cannot use weapons of any other type.

Somewhere in the game options is a setting that shows the stats comparison of an item for both you and your companion. Try turning it on, I personally find it very useful.

Neither do I find any weapon skill list under the Companion tab of the Abilities window.
