Who Is Walker in Back 4 Blood?
Walker is a war veteran that has seen a lot of action and is no stranger to a combat situation. Walker grew up as the oldest of five siblings in a working-class family, so he knows a thing or two about responsibility and being the leader of the pack. He plays this role amongst the other cleaners and while he isn’t the most opinionated or vocal character, when he speaks, he commands a room. He anticipates problems, keeps his teammates in check and will put himself in the line of fire to protect his squad.
In terms of appearance, Walker wears a red baseball cap which is turned backwards, a blue jumper, an earth tone scarf, gloves, heavy combat boots, dog tags and grey cargo pants. Also, Walker sports a rather impressive beard. Walker’s weapon of choice is a Glock 23 pistol and his character is voiced by the talented William. C. Stephens.
