For awhile now I've been having a AI bug with Cait. For awhile now I had Cait tag along with me and I have been trying to fix a bug in her AI where she literally runs away from any enemy to crouch and hide from the combat. I've tried a few companion mods to try to fix this but none of them did.
It may be worthe mentioning that previously when I had first gotten Cait, I had her on farming duty in the sanctuary settlement. At the time I had just gotten Piper so I was not interested in having yet another companion with me at the time. I would say that mabye her AI switched to that of a farming settler, but even they fight back. Also I tried putting her on gaurd duty to see if it would fix her AI -- once at sanctuary, which did put her on gaurd duty but did not fix her AI and a second time at vault 88 when I had decided to pick her up again. The attempt at vault 88 did not work since it would not let me select her to assign her. At this point in time she was not actually a follower so it should have worked.
As for other followers, Piper's AI still works perfectly. Same as Preston,dog meat, and Ada. As well as any automatrons I build -- though not entirely worthe mentioning since I believe automatrons have different AI's to begin with.
I have also tried console commands such as:
and I have also tried to re-complete her quest through console commands:
