Thanks a lot
I second this.
Options to increase the currently equipped weapon's proficiency level would be AMAZING! Especially since higher proficiency can make up for deficiency in the weapon's own accuracy rating.
Like with a high enough proficiency, any sniper rifle hits exactly where you aim when using the scope, which is invaluable for headshots from a distance.
I don't know what else proficiency effects, but it could possibly also increase reload speed or other modifiers.
It actually bumps it up to your currently allowed maximum ammo for that weapon. So without any Storage Deck Upgrades, you carry 60 sniper rounds, 60 revolver rounds, 200 repeater rounds, 40 launcher rounds, 240 combat rifle rounds, 3 grenades, 360 (Or thereabouts) SMG rounds.
So when you hit 3, it bumps you up to those till you buy some ammo storage deck upgrades.
That INCLUDES current clip in your current weapon. So a 50 shot repeater with the first repeater SDU would be 50/250 clip/reserve for full ammo.

Also, an infinite/refill grenades option would be amazing as well.

Welcome to 5 years ago. Steam runs in the background, that's how it works. Also, because of that Steam app running, we don't have SecuROM installed on our computers.
Edit: An option to increase one's proficiency rating with the weapons would be appreciated too.
As for Steam, it is certainly highly preferable to the alternative - that being SecuROM and its cohorts. The Steam application itself is, all things considering, pretty good - as well as being free from DRM infections, despite being a method of DRM itself. Really, the complaints for the multiplayer in this have to be laid at the feet of 2K and GameSpy for - as usual - the hideous lack of proper server preparation for a release on the PC. That, and they somehow managed to let cracked versions play online. Stellar job there guys!
