One of the oddest things about Fallout 4 to me is that Dogmeat can carry your junk for you…without actually wearing a backpack or dragging about a bag. As with a number of Fallout 4’s peculiarities, there’s now a mod to address it. Because of course there is.
Higeyosi’s Dogmeat’s Backpack does exactly what its name implies, giving you the ability to put one of three craftable backpacks on your trusty canine companion. You can watch the mod in action here with Kottabos Games‘ video:
