"I'm not staying HERE, buddy. We got a deal."
—Warren to Daryl Dixon about joining up with him[src]

Warren Bedford is an original character appearing in The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.



Hardly anything is known about Warren's life before or as the outbreak began, except that he was working as a pharmacist and had an uncle named Lester and a father. Warren grew up in a large, close family. Thanks to the kindness and sponsorship of his uncle Lester, Warren is the first of the Bedford family to graduate from college. Warren is shy and earnest, due primarily to debilitating asthma he has endured since he was very young.



In Survival Instinct, Warren is encountered inside the local gas station. When talked to, he says that for a ride out of the town, he would give Daryl Dixon and his uncle Jess Collins some gas. He tells you that the generator is locked, and the person who has the key is his uncle, who was last seen going with his father to look for any survivors. He believes that they are not coming back, so the task is left up to Daryl to find the keys. After you receive the keys, you can have Warren accompany you. At any point you can ditch him, though leaving his status as unknown. 

Firesign Stadium

If Warren reaches Firesign Stadium, he and another survivor will board the last evacuation helicopter. When Daryl's brother Merle informs Daryl that the helicopter pilot has been bitten, Daryl tries to tell Warren but the helicopter takes off, leaving Warren's fate unknown.


Killed By

  • Zombies (Determinant)
  • Helicopter crash (Assumed, Determinant)

While he is in the gas station, he asks Daryl to get the keys to the generator so they can get gas and leave. When Daryl comes back with the keys, Warren says to wait. If you ignore him and put the keys in, he yells for help, before getting eaten alive.

Warren, along with any other survivor that may survive until the Evac in Georgia, most likely died in a helicopter crash, as Merle notices that the "Whirlybird Pilot" had been bitten, and said he was already looking like he was going to turn. The pilot might have turned mid-flight causing a crash, possibly killing Warren and the other passengers. 

Killed Victims

  • Possibly numerous counts of zombies


  • Stealthy
  • Prefers Blunt Weapons
  • Weak


  • Keeping Warren alive until the end of the game rewards the player with the "Stealthy Survivor" relic.
  • It is impossible to save both Warren and Jimmy in the same playthrough, as the player only has access to a pickup truck at that point and therefore can only take one survivor with them.
  • In Garwater, Warren's character model is used as numerous deceased bodies.
