In Escape from Tarkov the handling of weapons can be trained through active use. In short, the more you use a certain weapon, the more skilled you become with it.

Depending on the weapon, reaching level 2 or level 3 will provide new reload animations. Level 3 grants the ability to reload while aiming down sights for all weapons.

Variants of a weapon family share the same mastery. You can see which guns are connected and how much EXP each level requires below.
