    For this achievement you need to recruit 5 DIFFERENT companions from across the Boston Wasteland. Simply recruit the character then dismiss them and move on to the next one. I apologise in advance that I do not have a video to show you each companion's location, but I'm sure you can find them by yourselves! :)

    There are 13 companions that you can team up with:

    Cait - Location: Combat Zone
    Codsworth - Location: Sanctuary
    Curie - Location: Vault 81
    Paladin Danse - Location: Cambridge Police Station
    Dogmeat - Location: Red Rocket Truck Stop
    Deacon - Location: Old North Church
    Hancock - Location: Goodneighbour
    Maccready - Location: The Third Rail (Goodneighbour)
    Piper - Location: Diamond City
    Preston Garvey - Location: Museum of Freedom, then moves to Sanctuary
    Strong - Location: Trinity Tower
    Nick Valentine - Location: Vault 114, then moves to Diamond City after quest
    X6-88 - Location: The Institute

    Many have quests attached to them that you must complete before they are available to become a companion, which can be a pain if you want to recruit them quickly. Therefore, by far the easiest ones to recruit are:

    Codsworth, Dogmeat, Preston Garvey, then Piper and Nick Valentine (once you get to Diamond City). However, it is completely up to you.

    Good luck!

    South Park TFBWI did aabout 10 Minutemn quests then I did all their other quests aswell. But when I speak to Preston, he'll still give me quests but it won't let me have a conversation with him. Like, when I press A to talk, no options come on screen to talk to him. He just says some generic line like "Go kill the ghouls in x". Pretty annoying, but atleast there are other companions to get.

    NicholiGinavaefthanks for the concise guide - no need to apologize for not having a video - some people, like me, will only only use those things as an extreme last resort. too many are such a waste of time to watch

    BiGPaPaRuI have not gotten the option for Preston to join me. I am in the minutemen now but it never gives me the option to turn him into a companion.

    With the addition of the Automatron DLC, all robot companions that you build and then get to follow you will count towards this achievement. After completing the first mission of Automatron you will have the ability to build a robot workbench at any settlement. As long as you have the materials you can build the basic automatron model. By the time you get to the starting point of this DLC you should have the materials to build multiple robots.

    Also, during the first mission of Automatron you have the chance to recruit the pre-built robot Ada.

    I only ever used Dogmeat, Paladin Danse and Ada as companions. The achievement unlocked for me after building and recruiting my second robot.
