As per title I lost the ED-E somewhere... Not sure where. I stopped paying attention to him because he seems to always get stuck at the entrance of various caves/vaults (would follow me just fine outside). I never gotten message of his death. He does not show on the map. I still have the Enchanted Senses perk on my list. Boomers still offer to take care of my robot problem. The followers/BOS upgrades were done long ago. Checked Lucky 38 and Primm - he is not there.
I actually kinda like this because I play sneak/sniping character and the silly eye-bot is a bloody aggro machine. The only reason I recruit him in the first place is his perk and extra carrying weight.
However this presents a problem: I can't recruit Rex because I can't let go ED-E.
Anything else I can try other than console commands?
