To max out a particular weapon skill, you must continue to use weapons of that type, doing damage with them, until you reach level 20 in that weapon type. This sounds simple, but a weapon will 'max out' its own individual exp, at which point it will stop giving you credit toward that weapon type's skill.

For example, my assault rifle I'm currently using will max out its own individual 'experience' bar once I have done 802,500 total damage with it. Once that happens, it will no longer give me credit toward the Assault Rifles skill. You can see this exp bar easiest if you hit Start and select the weapon to change what weapon is in that slot. Look on the right of the screen and just below the spot for the weapon's mods, you will see its progress bar. Once it maxes out (802,500/802,500 in this instance), change to a different weapon of that type to keep working on your skill.

IMPORTANT: Damage done at Arkfalls usually DOES NOT USUALLY COUNT. This may be a glitch and maybe it's just happening to me. More confirmation from others would be appreciated. I have checked my weapon's exp bar both before and after major and minor arkfalls and it has not moved at all in either. Some people have recorded it counts for certain mobs at certain arkfalls but not across the board.

A great place to level weapons is San Quentin. Just rush through and disable all generators and head to the final area. Use the power weapon rockets to clear all the enemies and spawn the Hulker. Hide behind boxes from him and damage him with the weapon of your choice until Ego says "He's not going to stop!". At that point let him kill you and hold A to extract. It will respawn you right at the Hulker and his health will be full. Rinse and repeat to max out a weapon.
