Crew Skill Proficiency: +10 Scavenging Efficiency, +2 Treasure Hunting Critical

If I had treasure hunting, I'd level his affection. As is, I'd kick him off my ship if I could.
Devs: Please make healing more interesting and fun by increasing options and meaningful decisions. Let a good healer be judged by the decisions they make, not who pressed the buttons in a certain order. Or which class has the most output.

technically i agree, though i do love blizz, he's more a mascot than a 'companion'. above pet status, but actually fighting with him is always for laughs (which is a good thing). skadge has character, and i actually do love him, him and guss tuno are my favorites companions. he's so hilariously dumb and vulgar, running around with him feels the most cinematic, he fits the default hardcore bounty hunter persona the best, though gault is a close second.

Keep in mind that I just got skadge an hour ago, but I'm face rolling mobs with him in dps mode (mind you I'm a tech shield). I do avoid the yellow baddies with him though. When I break down and make a healing bh, I'll prolly end up using him a lot. I do have to say that BH's got a good mix for their companion list.

''You got somethin' to kill or what?''

It is kinda fitting to have a mean and angry companion, the only thing i hate about Skage is his,...


His dewlap... and the shape of his head.

....somehow that does not help my case, I always end up getting hated by someone when I state my opinions on BH companions, if you want my full list of favorites, in order: Mako, Skadge, Torian, Gault, Blizz, EVERYTHING ELSE, the Ship Droid.

Powertech, why use a second pistol when you have an Arm that shoots everything you ever need?

Yeah. Meathead muscles his way onto the there any good reason why he doesn't wake up some morning? I can't think of a dang one.

On top of that, he's pretty much worthless to me in a fight, ugly as sin, and I can't stand his comments when sending him off on missions. Yep, I'd really love an option to switch out companions - so and so leaves the crew for new, useful member who I won't mind hauling around the galaxy.

One thing I'll agree with you on is Mako. She is the cutest companion in the game, hands down, even if she does have a kind of little girl mentality. I still can't believe that Blizz, Gault and Torian comes after Skadge, though. The guy is such a douche.

My BH order: Mako, Blizz, Torian, Gault, Skadge
My SW order: Dark Jaesa, Vette, Pierce, Broonmark, Quinn
My JK order: Kira, T7, Doc, Lord Scourge, Rusk
My IA order: Temple, Vector, Lokin, Kaliyo, SCORPIO

I think it's time to bring something constructive to at least one Skadge thread.

Have to admit, I spoiled my "Skadge romance" - read all the hate topics about him. And they all worked - I hated the poor guy in advance and was seriously thinking of shelving my BH untill carbonizing companions option will be implemented. But I liked BH too much to stop, so finally met legendary hulk. Now I do not understand all that hatred. Seriously, you, guys, are overreacting.

Granted, I knew that choosing option "no way you are coming with me" is pointless, so I took another for face-saving. But to be honest I do not think phrase "I will keep you on a short leash" (1st option) is much better. Yet, he totally bought it and did not mind. He also was ok with previous similar sentence and answered "Want to boss me around? Fine!". Even more, it looks like I promised to let him kill Jedi we were after and then as LS BH broke that promise. I simply felt like I do owe the guy a lift to the next space-port after that. And about his uselessness, not only some of us do prefer to run with a melee tank, when Skadge ask you to give him a lift he literally said "take me with you, I will kill for you". Fair suggestion from a bully like he is.

He _is_ a rude stupid bully, but a comical one. You can make fun of him, insult him or ignore him - he does not complain. I do believe he was one of those companion we could let go in beta (like we could kill Quinn) but he is not half as bad as people say. Actually, if that carbonizing option will ever come to the game I am not sure I will use it on him. And right now my only regret is I did not get Skadge before Alderaan. Man what a fun would it be to see him talking with all those nobles!
