Private Johnson is a survivor of the zombie apocalypse.


About a year after the zombie outbreak, Johnson is one of the remnants of the US military hiding out with several others in an underground complex while zombies overrun the surface world.

When Sarah and the others arrive back at the base. They are greeted by Johnson. He attempts to refuel the helicopter which is refuted by Sarah due to the high zombie activity, during which he also informs her of Major Cooper's death. One day, while Johnson, Miller, Steel and Miguel are trying to capture a zombie from the infested caves, the zombie breaks free and attacks Miller. As Miller's finger is on his machine gun's trigger, he accidentally guns Johnson down.

Dr. Logan later butchers Miller and Johnson's corpses, harvesting their remains, which he then feeds them to Bub. He also reanimated Johnson's decapitated head for his unethical experiments.
