Additional levels may be acquired through the use of a Bombardier, Common Man, or Ogre class mods.
- Rapid Reload is useful with slow-loading weaponry such as large-magazine machine guns, sniper rifles, and rocket launchers, as the increased reload speed reduces the downtime between salvoes.
- The bugged recoil reduction effect is most harmful on full-automatic weapons, but can be offset with a good stock or the Glorious prefix.
- At a weapon proficiency level of 50, most weapons already have a 102% Reload Speed bonus. (Sniper Rifles are a notable exception.) At high weapon proficiencies Brick may want to reallocate skill points elsewhere.
The recoil reduction effect is bugged, and actually increases weapon recoil with additional ranks in the skill.
