    Probably the easiest companion to get this with is Codsworth. You can find him in front of your old home after leaving the vault, pretty hard to miss.wink
    Now Codsworth loves it when you mod your weapons or armor. So every time you visit your preferred settlement to mod something you will make (or at least have a chance to make) Codsworth happy. Note that it has a cooldown until you receive a new like from him.
    Old method, obviously patched, sadly:
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    If you want to boost it you can go sleeping for 48h and then mod something again and receive a new like from codsworth.
    If you pay enough attention you can see a popup in the top left corner of the screen once the relationship increases. There are several stages of how much he likes you (neutral->respect->love->idolize). Every time it increases he will start a conversation with you by himself if he's somewhere around you.
    If you have him at maximum it will net you the perk 'robot sympathy' which gives you +10 damage resistance for energy weapons from robots.
    In case you have him with you as a companion, he also likes generosity, giving away items and nice or peaceful behavior.
    What he doesn't like is selfish behavior, murdering non-hostiles, picking owned (red) locks, speech success, pickpocketing and theft.

    If you don't switch between already owned mods you can make progress towards the 50 weapon mod achievement while increasing the relationship with Codsworth;

    if you want to maximize any other companions relationship, you can find a list of what they like, what not and what perk they net you on this site;
    note; sometimes it happens that you have to do something your companion doesn't like or you do it by accident and haven't saved your game recently to just load it and have it undone. But that's no reason to worry, it will not prevent you from reaching maximum relationship with them, it will just take a bit longer (except you do something to make them hostile like murdering them or someone friendly, try to avoid that wink).

    *if you're going to vote negative please tell why in the comments so I can improve the solution if needed (in case something gets patched or anything alike), thanks! toast

    Thanks to TonySki for spell checking the solution by putting it through Microsoft Word spelling and grammar check! smile

    Warboy925After I finally got to romance Piper, I switched to Cail, got naked (except for armor), and just fast traveled, she likes that, so I had her at "respect" very quickly (along with being sarcastic) in a very short time.........

    So to recap: With Cail, just fast travel between settlements while naked (you can wear armor though), the loading times are even quicker (for me) then the whole "quick save & reload" mess

    Edit: Come to think about it, you can use the same method as your solution states on Paladin Danse as well (personally, I think his perk is way better!)

    GuNsLiNgErX1983I'm trying this with Can't but reading elsewhere that you need to do her sidequest first. I tried it at level 25 and it's rock hard. Please tell me I don't need to do it to get this achievement :-(

    herbal1stwell i don't play fallout atm although i don't have finished all achievements yet ^^ however @GuNsLiNgErX1983
    i don't know about all companions and how to get them resp. maximise their relationship, this solution is just to show a quick way of getting the related achievement. you can check this site to see what they like and what not, so you can try to max the relationship with the companion you want; http://www.ign.com/wikis/fallout-4/Companions
    and if i remember right its for most of the companions that they ask you for a quest once the maximum relationship is reached and only after that asked quest you get their perk..

    I found it very easy to do with Cait. You will meet her in the Combat Zone (you will eventually get a miscellaneous objective to investigate there, by overhearing a Diamond City guard, I think).

    Now, just totally undress yourself and fast-travel between a few locations (I fast-travelled to Goodneighbor, Diamond City market, Sanctuary Hills and Abernathy Farm). I chose settlements because you are safe upon arrving there. Each time you arrive at a location, and you are naked, Cait will like it.

    Even better, if you stock up on booze and chems, if you drink alcohol or take a chem upon arrival at a location and waiting a few seconds, you will get a second like in most cases (beer doesn't count).

    With this method, you will get 1-2 likes every couple of minutes, making this, I believe, the fastest way to improve a relationship with a companion. It took me only around 45 minutes to get Cait's personal quest, and another few minutes after I completed her quest, to reach the maximum level.

    Edit: alternative solution with McCready, who you will find in the Third Rail in Goodneighbor. He likes when you steal something. Find a good spot for stealing (for me, the best one was the USS Constitution). Make sure you won't be caught by NPCs. Then, steal one item, Mc Cready will like it. Save and quit, reload your save, steal something again, rinse and repeat.

    A Wise PirateProbably worth noting that if you take drugs/drink alcohol after completing Cait's quest she actually dislikes your actions (for obvious reasons).

    SPOILERS: East North-East of Diamond City, South of Boston Common is a bar/fight arena called the combat zone. I received it as a miscellaneous task to go check it out. Upon arrival I killed all the bandits inside to "save" the owner and a female fighter named Cait. Go through the dialogue and get her to join up with you. She enjoys it when you drink, do drugs, steal things, pick locks, and always taking the moral low-road. It only took several hours of traveling with her to go through about four dialogues she initiates after you keep getting her favor up with you. You will know you're almost finished after

    One more conversation after this and you will be given a tough romance option with charisma. I used grape mentats to boost my charisma, and ensure success. After she shares the mutual sentiments , you will have full relationship with her and achievement unlocked. (Also as Rubiodan mentioned in the comments, you still get the romance option as a female character)

    JusticeEMUCheck in the miscellaneous quests to see if it is there. If not, just go through vault 95 and see if that works.
