So when you level up does your weapons level up as well so they get more damaged ect?

The weapon rank increase, but some far I've notice little damage increase, but more skills on the weapon.

Small bonuses come from increased rarity.

But this is not a loot-centric game, it's an FPS.

Skill is far more important than farming loots.

To answer the main question of this topic your weapon does not. Others you find will have better +'s later as you level but the damage recoil base stats stay about the same for all weapons.

Base stats are more or less the same. As you go up in rarity, you get more bonus stats and effects, which are quite helpful, and more mod slots, which are also quite helpful.

The game is quite loot oriented, in fact, when you take into account the bonuses on purple and orange weapons, together with possible mods for them, which also much be looted or bought (which requires looting for cash). Skill is very important, too (although it's certainly not an FPS -- it's a TPS, or third-person shooter like Mass Effect or Gears, and not a FPS, or first person shooter, like COD, BF or Borderlands), but the game is quite loot oriented -- just not a "gating" sense as you see in a typical MMORPG. That is, you are never excluded from areas due to item level, which happens when loot is used as a "gear check" gate, as is often the case in MMOs. But better weapons are better, and at higher ego levels, you have more chance to get higher rarity weapons with more bonuses. It's just that the base stats don't change much. This is done for PvP balance.

Also, you need to switch guns once your gun skill maxes with that particular gun, otherwise you won't earn more weapon skill. Once you max on a particular gun, switch it out for another one (even of the same type) so that you can keep weapon skill increasing.
