Walter Cole is one of the main antagonists of the 1994 action film, Surviving the Game. He worked on the street as part of a missions group but eventually got the job as a hunter.
Walter Cole is first seen in the film where he always spies on the film's protagonist, Jack Mason, to see if he has potential to survive being out in the world.
Cole tries to give Mason a free sandwich but Mason refuses it. He sees that Mason is about to commit suicide by allowing a truck driver run him over and rescues him. After a long argument Mason tells Cole about the job that he works. Cole tells him to see his partner, Thomas Burns.
Cole is seen again at the cabin with Mason and the other hunters. They discuss about the job and Mason goes to sleep, while Cole and the other hunters go over their plan.
Cole points a gun at Mason's face and tells him that they are not hunting animals but rather Mason himself. Mason leaves the cabin while Cole and the hunters have breakfast. The hunters then start the hunt by searching for Mason. Cole discovers that one of the hunters, Doc Hawkins, has been killed. They pursue Mason but Mason jumps in the lake to avoid being shot.
Cole then finds out that Mason has captured John Griffin and they find the hideout where Mason was hiding but left. Cole kills Griffin because Griffin has decided to not hunt with them anymore and has helped Mason escape.
Cole tries to start his ATV but since Mason sabotaged it, it explodes and ends up mortally wounding him. His legs are gone and since he is badly injured, his partner Burns kills him by choking him.
Walter Cole may seem friendly but deep down he is cruel, merciless and a murderer. It is unknown how he got the job as hunter, but it can be assumed that he killed many unfortunate victims.
