D-Walker is unlocked after you complete Mission 13 and is the only Buddy that doesn’t have a bond meter. It is similar to the Gear Walkers you can find enemies using, only you can able to fully customize it with many different weapons and other equipment. Pressing the Stance button will switch between the standard mode and a more mobile mode.

D-Walker has various functions, like a mode that makes it great for mobility (left). It can also equip a variety of weapons, like a gatling gun and even a flamethrower (right).

There are three different configurations you can set up for D-Walker, allowing you to customize it so you can adapt to the situations at hand. You can equip various weapons to it, such as a gatling gun and even a non-lethal pistol. There is also a supporting role for the bi-pedal ally, functioning similar to D-Dog, although it has certain range to it.
