Companion Controls

The 'companion wheel' comes up whenever you interact with companions, and provides us with several options.  Going clockwise, starting at 12 'o clock:

 ________________________ _____________________________________________________
|         BUTTON:        |IN-GAME ACTION:                                      |
|Be Passive/Agressive    |Modifies companion's AI to act passively/agressively |
|Use Stimpak             |Use a Stimpak on companion                           |
|Wait here/Follow me     |Forces the companion to wait or to follow            |
|Talk to                 |Converse with the companion                          |
|Back up                 |Tells the companion to provide cover tactics         |
|Keep distance/Stay close|Adjusts the companion's proximity to your character  |
|Open inventory          |Opens up the companion's inventory                   |
|Use Ranged/Melee        |Switches between ranged/melee weapons                |

Note: You can have one humanoid and one non-humanoid companion with you at most. Besides these two fixed companions you can get assistance from an NCR Ranger or Trooper (if you're in a good reputation with them).  Lastly, hiring a bodyguard in Freeside cranks the maximum up to 4, but these guys only help you during your stay in Freeside, so they hardly count.
