Weapon Proficiency in Valkyrie Elysium is the overall familiarity with a weapon. The higher the proficiency, the higher the Physical and Magic Attack. You can view this in the menus under Equip or Weapon Enhancement. Every weapon will begin at F proficiency, with SSS being the highest. To increase proficiency, players need only use the weapon in combat.
Fastest way to improve Weapon Proficiency in Valkyrie Elysium
The quickest method to grind out proficiency is to simply use the weapon. Bigger enemies will award more EXP. However, by playing the side quest 'My Hometown,' players will encounter swarms of enemies to take down that will quickly level up proficiency. This side quest is unlocked by speaking to the spirit in the alley during the Chapter 2 main mission.
Weapon Proficiency Ranks and EXP
- F - 500 EXP

That's really all there is to it. Unlocking all of the trophies in Valkyrie Elysium will take a minimum of two playthroughs, so players can take their time leveling up each weapon to SSS. Otherwise, if you've got time to kill and want to get it out of the way, put on a podcast and get to grinding.
