    Companion abilities require a couple of things, your Inspiration skill will have to be 20 to unlock companion abilities. Secondly Companions.

    The first you'll have access to is Parvati, you can recruit her during the quest Stranger in a Strange Land. One of the first quests, in the town of Edgewater.

    The second companion you can recruit is Vicar Max in Edgewater Vale on Terra 2. You can (it's optional) meet him during the main quest 'Comes Now the Power'. Finish his quest 'The Illustrated Manual' and he will offer to join you. - Thanks AssertionError

    The third follower you can find is Felix, departing The Groundbreaker. He will be on the left side before entering your ship.

    To use companion abilities you'll simply have to put a crosshair over any enemy in game and press cn_left and cn_right on the D-Pad. I recommend getting weaker enemies to half health if you want to guarantee the kill.

    Smoky BrennethI believe it maybe 50 kills with one companion, based on how I unlocked it

    I unlocked it after putting Max back into my party

    I found a very good place to get this and a lot of the other achievements which require you to grind kills.

    When you get to Fallbrook on the planet Monarch, you can find someone called Catherine Malin who will give you the quest ‘Slaughterhouse Clive’.

    When you get to the front gates, save before entering.

    1. Clear out the few enemies at the front and get the key off the leader.

    2. Enter the compound and defeat the enemies in this area..

    3. After a couple of rooms you will be in a large room downstairs where they keep all the live cysty pigs. All these pigs count as kills.

    4. There’s another room after the pig room with enemies too.

    5. Once the place is cleaned out - reload your save. Rinse and repeat.

    The SCHWARTZ 00Perfect. Got all my kills out of the way in this area. Best solution by far.

    Dokta VWorth mentioning that if you choose the sewer entrance to the facility which is to the right of the building in the water then the first room up the ladder from there has all the wurst pigs in. Save a little bit of time if you’re just after the chieve.

    A very easy way of getting this is to wait until you're a higher level then return to Emerald Vale, your companion attacks will one shot nearly every enemy here since they remain a low level. Set your companions to passive mode and they will only attack when told to, I ended up getting my last 20 kills in less than 10 minutes this way.

    If you're trying to get this naturally you should know that some companions work better for this achievement than others, any that have a long animation before they do their attack (Nyoka for example) will often attack a dead target, because your other companion will have killed them.
