|Location:||2F - The Unreliable|
SAM in The Outer Worlds is a Companion that can follow you around on your journey with Quests and objectives of their own. They also have their own Abilities and Skills, Perks, and Alignment. Decisions you make when they are with you may cause them to leave if they disapprove of it, or make comments positively or negatively depending on what you do.
SAM in The Outer Worlds
SAM can be found on the 2F of the Unreliable. SAM has no proper AI and does not participate in decision-making, instead giving you slogan after slogan of pre-prepared corporate tidbits.
Parvati will frequently talk to SAM and repair it, which will happen at the engineering portion of your ship.
SAM and ADA seem to develop a relationship during your travels, which eventually turns physical. Walk in on them for some rather amusing conversations.
If you have Robophobia! you will get debuff when SAM is nearby.
How to Recruit SAM
SAM can be recruited into your party by completing the quest The Cleaning Machine, which is obtained by inspecting him on the ship.
