It's popular belief that the max is level 50, but no one has reached the end, to my knowledge anyway.

ok tnx a lot . btw how does weapon proficiency grow ? xp gained by killing with current weapon / number of kills with current weapon / or shots fired with it . I'm basicly wondering if you can raise 2/3 weapons to max prof.

I've assumed it raises with kills, though I'm only guessing, maybe critical hits factor in as well.

I've always guessed it raises with how good the enemy is, as after boss fights, I've gotten several level ups on a gun, and I also got level ups on a gun when a friend killed an enemy I didn't touch.

it seems the harder the enemy is to kill for you the more you get for it. at level 50 i got next to nothing when killing level 30s with my revolver at 0 but killed a level 48 and when up one and ahalf.

it's got to have something to do with exp gained also, you can drag along a lvl one with you to a later stage and kill stuff to level them up and they will gain proficiency without firing a shot.

This is a paraphrase from a loading tip:

Proficiency goes up with the number of enemies killed with said weapon.

However as a sidenote, since I play as a Siren: Must be careful that if you're using elemental weapons not to allow the "burn", "electricutable", "corrosive", "explosive" damage kill them.
