I've assigned armatures and weight painted several characters in this file and now it's not working for this one character. Everytime i try to weight paint it i see the verticies like in edit mode and can't draw or subtract on any parts of the mesh. does anyone know what is happening here?

It is actually simple why it doesn't work, no need to worry, you just somehow pressed or activated this button:

This function allows you to select only vertices you want and you will be able to draw weights only for those vertices that are selected. It's basically a mask function for weight painting.

Turn it off by clicking it and it should let you draw again (it is also the reason why you see vertices)
