Walker is one of Back 4 Blood's most straightforward cleaners. He excels with firearms, especially in the hands of a sharpshooter — he gets 20% accuracy for five seconds every time he hits a Precision Kill. Combined with his 10% extra damage dealt and his +10 team health boost, he's a strong all-around cleaner. Here's how to build him out.
