Increasing the Bond Level with companions is one of the core mechanics in Scarlet Nexus. By increasing the Bond Level, additional SAS effects become available. A companion with a high Bond Level will also perform actions like revive, heal, etc. more frequently than the others. But how does one increase Bond Level in the game? In this guide, we have explained all there is to know about increasing the Bond Level with companions in Scarlet Nexus.
Increase Bond Level in Scarlet Nexus
Before we begin, do note that there are 6 Bond Levels in the game – one for each companion. At each Bond Level, the companion will provide a unique benefit. This quickly stacks up into a lot considering the sheer number of companions available in the game.
As for increasing the Bond Level, there are a couple of ways to do so. Let us go through them one by one:
The first method of increasing the Bond Level with companions is to simply have them in the party. Fighting alongside a companion is a little slow but a sure way of increasing the Bond Level with them.
Another method of doing so is to gift them the things that they like. Gifts can be acquired by playing through the campaign and can also be bought. These can be gifted to companions to increase the Bond Level. For a complete list of the best gifts for all the companions, feel free to check out our detailed Scarlet Nexus Gifts guide.
The last, and probably the best, method of increasing the Bond Level is completing the Bond Episodes. These are small sequences that increase the Bond Level exponentially. To begin, start the ‘Standby Phase 2’ and interact with a companion that has got an icon above their head – this happens in the hideout.
