I found an old question that says the W key can be used to change the weight value, but that doesn't seem to work in v2.79 anymore. The F key and Shift + F still work in changing the radius and strength, but the W key only brings up the specials menu.

Weight factor - control via keyboard Here is the question/answer that I mentioned

  • $\begingroup$ It works in 2.79b, I tried that now. Maybe you assigned the shortcut to some different function? $\endgroup$ Jan 20 '19 at 19:28

In Blender 2.93 you need to use Ctrl + F to change brush weight.

I know I'm a bit late but maybe this will help somebody.
