A Sanitation and Maintenance Automechanical, SAM can be found on the Unreliable near the bunks where other companions live. Former Unreliable captain Alex Hawthorne found it in Emerald Vale's scrapheap during a job.
Logs on Hawthorne's terminal show that before his death, SAM was going to be fitted with an Acid Steeper in order to make him combat-ready, but the part was lost in transit and sent to an old storage facility in Roseway.
Interactions with the player characterEdit
Space-Crime Continuum - When entering the Rizzo's lab facility, you will encounter a few mechanicals in the first room. They will prepare to attack, but if SAM is in your party, he will declare that he is here to clean the place and the mechanicals will stand down.
Decontaminate (SAM jumps in the air and slams down near his target sweeping out caustic cleaning fluids all around to get out those really tough stains)
Clean Sweep (-25% Harmful status effect duration)
Bonus Support Intimidate (+10 intimidate)
Bad Samaritan (+20% damage to automechanicals)
Cleaner (-20% Negative reputation per kill)
SAM's mere presence triggers the Robophobia Flaw, so it is advisable to avoid that particular flaw if the player plans to activate him.
