After every battle there seems to be a grade based on how well I do. However, I can't tell what the weapon level rank does but it is consistently dropping my mission rank down a level or two. What is this based on and how can I improve it?

  • There are 25 weapon levels, from A, A+, A++, A+++, B, ... to S (A=1, A+=2, A++=3, etc)
  • Each character's average weapon level (AWL) is the average level of weapons in both hand (e.g Shotgun lv3, Melee lv1 --> character AWL is 2). AWL of team is the average of all character's AWL. The game always seems to round up the calculation.
  • You level up a weapon type by causing damage with it (destroying parts or wanzers gives more experience).
  • So, to keep AWL low, you need to:
    (a) Avoid grinding with Battle Simulator.
    (b) Avoid using the same team over and over.
    (c) Avoid using the same weapon over and over. For example, carry a weapon you have low skill in and use it to finish off enemies.
    (d) Distribute the kills carefully among team members.

that is weird, so A is actually a 'lower' weapon level than B, which is lower than C??? –  z ' Dec 28 '12 at 11:41
Yes. And the second highest rank (below S) is F+++. It's rather unintuitive. –  Jeremy Dec 30 '12 at 13:10
