The Walther PPK (Polizeipistole Kriminalmodell) is a blowback-operated semi-automatic pistol that was developed by the German arms manufacturer Carl Walther GmbH Sportwaffen and released in 1930. A smaller variant of the Walther PP, it had a shorter grip, barrel and frame, and reduced magazine capacity. A new, two-piece wrap-around grip panel construction was used to conceal the exposed back strap. The smaller size made it more concealable than the original PP and hence better suited to plainclothes or undercover work. The pistol is famous for the death of several famous historical figures such as Adolf Hitler or Park Chung-hee. Most notably, it is used by the fictional character James Bond in many novels and films.
— In-game Description
In terms of statistics, the weapon is essentially a less capable version of the Ruby, with the same damage profile, rate of fire, muzzle velocity and reload speed, but with a lower magazine and reserve ammunition capacity, as well as slightly higher recoil. While its high rate of fire helps somewhat to offset its low base damage, the small magazine size can be a hinderance when engaging multiple enemies.
A variant of the weapon, the PPK Suppressed is also available. As the name suggests, this version is equipped with a Suppressor, which eliminates the directional damage indicator for enemies when they are hit and does not alert enemies in Combined Arms. Except for a slight reduction in recoil, the weapon is otherwise statistically identical to the unsuppressed version.
- The PPK was originally developed for the cancelled 5v5 mode where it would be used by the Axis Control Captain subclass. The weapon's existence was first revealed in August 2019 when renders of the PPK were posted and later removed from the official DICE artstation gallery.
