Eddie gives +1 skill die for all combat actions. I'm assuming this means both ranged and melee. The only reason I'm questioning my accuracy is because Egg only gives +1 skill for all Ranged combat. This makes Eddie a better companion for combat overall.
So I got to thinking that maybe Eddie only gives + 1 to melee combat. Can anybody clarify?
Yes you're correct - he gives +1 combat skill die! --- However, note the flip special abilities on the companions One is RATHER GOOD (Like EGGs Immunity for the Round power) lol
I guess my point is, choose the companion you like best for fun or the strategy you're going for -- Also you can't choose a companion that is already being played as a character in the game.
