Besides El Toro, I think my favorites are Mustang Sally or Froggo Villa.

Hello Captain Sharp and welcome to the Message Boards and congratulations, for you are now officially a Message Board Marauder. Besides El Toro, and as a Buccaneer, I actually really liked Thunderhoof. He wasn't that spectacular in any given area but for my Buck he came in quite handy with his high health and Relentless. He took a lot of hits just so I could dish out my own damage. But I think you may find that the favorite or best CR companion may be partially influenced by the class of each pirate and which strategies they use in battle.

Again welcome to the boards and best of luck to you!

Cool Ranch was my favorite world, believe it or not. It really bolstered my crew with some strong companions. My favorite is...

El Toro: "Ahem! EL TORO, is here!"

Me: *sigh* "What I was going to say is that my favorite is,"

El Toro: *cough* " El Toro." *cough, cough*

Me: "For crying out loud, go make yourself useful. I need some fresh pet snacks."

El Toro: "Right away captain!"

Anyways, besides the amazing El Toro, I really enjoyed Angry Charlie Cobb, my weasel gambler. I love his attack animations and he is fairly useful in battle. He doesn't have any special powers, but I gave him second chance and burst fire which work really well. I don't know if you get him, being a Musketeer and all, but he is definitely second behind El Toro for me.

Playing as a musketeer, duck Holliday would be my favorite. Of you don't have him, then I would say that e chicken ranger. Good luck with questing!

ANY of the Magnificent 7. I have all of them. My favorites of the 6 you get are Billy, which I gave Burst Fire 3, and Buffalo Bill, who I gave True Grit 3. They have great epic loadouts, and I enjoy using all of them.

Wild Bill Peacock and El Toro are the only Cool Ranch companions I still use. I don't actually use Jim Masterson, but he looks pretty dang cool. Rooster Cogburn was pretty helpful throughout the beginning of Mooshu, and Monterrey Jack and Eric Jolly were pretty helpful during Port Regal.

El Toro of course. I love his jokes throughout the rest of the game.

My favourite Cool Ranch companion is El Toro because he does awesome damage, he has cool criticals, like when he pretends to give the enemy roses, and then smacks them in the face with the roses. LOL. And he looks good too.

It all really depends on how you use those companions, many say that El Toro is the best companion and Nurse Quinn is the worst, but time and time again I have seen Nurse Quinn become victorious over El Toro(maybe it's just pure luck and Privateer buffs, but still) xd

I am only level 22 (sadly) but my favorite Cool Ranch companion so far is Froggo Villa, although I have seen El Toro fight (against Santa Rana) so I assume he would be a good companion. Just wondering, in what quest do you get El Toro?

how do you despise Bonnie? for my musket, she is one of my best companions available

i run her with: (along with chantal lvingstone minus the double tap)
Double Tap
Overwatch 2
Burst Fire 2

reason i use these is because musket grants O watch and grants BF, so in other words, my Bonnie becomes

Double Tap
Overwatch 3 (if hit, -50% enemy accuracy)
Burst Fire 3 (higher % chance to trigger if their wounded)

So far, I have the Chicken Ranger, Nadya, or EL TORO! (El Toro stinger) as my best buds from Cool Ranch. However...I have a list extended beyond what is currently available...

Banditoad Companion: Gracias, Captain Laveer!
Me: I hope you get confirmed someday, little tadpole.

  1. El Toro! *trumpet*
  2. Duck Holliday
  3. You have to love the Black Storm Shaman
Seeing that I have completed Cool Ranch, this gives me some very nice flashbacks about my well-earned victories
