In the 1987 film The Living Daylights (starring Timothy Dalton) Bond is paired with a fellow MI6 agent to help aid in the extraction of a Russian KGB general. The Walther WA2000 is used to disable a snipers rifle. Bond is given the option between soft-tipped or steel-tipped (armor piercing) rounds, taking the latter as KGB snipers most normally wear body armor.

The Walther PPK was the weapon of choice for James Bond from the films Dr. No to Tomorrow Never Dies (except Moonraker and Octopussy) and again in Quantum of Solace and SkyFall. The gun is also mentioned in the Ian Fleming novels from Dr. No to The Man with the Golden Gun. It's the only gun / gadget that is used by all the Bond actors.
