Its hard to imagine that further down the line they WOULDN'T do more damage. The singularity summon where they explode and deal radiation damage to everyone around them seems to be pretty heavy. Not to mention they draw fire away from fl4k, plus the skills where they share damage dealt to fl4k. Seems like they would be pretty useful if you figure out how to use them

They seem to serve more as distractions and buffs, but I'm sure they'll do more damage at higher levels (and I think we only saw the base forms, not the modified forms). Plus, the Jabber gets different weapons depending on how you build it (pistol, SMG, shotgun, launcher).

They draw aggro, give buffs, and turn into stronger monsters as you go down the skilltree . The pets are as far from useless as you can get.
If all else fails, there's always the sun.

Yeah but if you're on co op then drawing aggro isn't really a big deal

Spiderant heals you, Skag can do a singularity move with one of his forms and the jabber uses weapons, still useful in coop.

Pet can also kill enemies that are close to death, so you can get a Second Wind. That is a huge benefit in harder content and during hectic crowded fights.

Hahahaha.

Flak can get some insane crit bonuses by not being targeted. The pet allows for more ease of it, plus free radiation damage and or extra gun.

Ok now that's cool. Didn't know if a pet kills someone while your down you get a second wind. That'll be really helpful with me wanting to solo Fl4k
PS4 or Xbox One, Either way, it's all good.
Just enjoy what you have & most of all, have fun.

There's also a passive in one of the trees that just straight up lets your pet rez you.
