The protagonist of Shoot Many Robots is P. Walter Tugnut, a hillbilly who has been stock-piling his RV with lots of guns, ammo, and beer awaiting the inevitable robot apocalypse. The "P" stands for "Pickles", but he doesn't like his given first name and instead goes by "Walter". After Walter learns that the abandoned robot factory is capable of building assassin robots by itself, Walter shuts down his RV and sets off with the guns and supplies, into a robot-killing massacre, Walter tries to save humanity against the robot horde.

When in multiplayer, Walter is represented up to four times, with his vest changing to either green, red, yellow, or blue to differentiate each player.


Walter's concept resembles Francis from Left 4 Dead.
