Weapon Level is a file in Resident Evil: Revelations 2.
Readable at the Vestibule's book by default.
Like characters, weapons also have levels. The higher the level, the stronger the weapons becomes.
Any character can use any weapon regardless of level, however if a character equips a weapon with a level higher than their own, the weapons level will automatically be lowered to match the character's level.
For example, if a Lv. 10 character equips a Lv. 30 weapon, the weapon's capabilities will be lowered to Lv. 10. However, only the weapon's firepower and ammo capacity are changed--it's other stats remain the same.
This holds true for changing levels at the deployment screen (the red door).
