Your Weapon Skill increases with every accurate shot you land. Getting a high Weapon Skill increases your ability with weapons. View weapon skills by pressing the L1 button when holding the weapon in question. The skill level appears in the stat box in the bottom corner of the screen. You can also check weapon stats through the Stats menu displays the weapon skill level and a label, such as "Poor," "Gangster," or "Hitman."
Gangster level is reached when skill levels fill 20% to 50% of the meter. All "Hitman" levels are reached when skill levels reach the maximum (100%). Your Weapon Skills improve in-between these milestones, as well.
