Destiny 2 - New Max Level and Power Level Cap

Every time Destiny 2 releases a new expansion, expect the Power level and max level cap to increase. This is the case with Warmind, the second expansion for Destiny 2. Previously, Guardians were only able to grind to level 20, and the max Power level was 300. You could, of course, hit 305 with mods, and then with Curse of Osiris you could hit level 25 and Power 335 with mods. What is the new Power level cap and max level with Warmind, though?

Max Level and Power Level Cap

The new max level for Guardians in Destiny 2: Warmind is 30. This is another five level bump, just like with the Curse of Osiris. This level is important because some of the campaign missions in Warmind are locked behind various level caps. Luckily, there are adventures and public events on Mars to help players grind it out and get back to the story missions at hand.

The new max Power level cap will be is 380. Of course, with the use of mods you can reach 385 Power, and you’ll need to. Events like the Nightfall and new Heroic Strike playlist are going to require a higher Power than what was released with Curse of Osiris, which was 270. Previously, the Nightfall only required you to be Power 240. Even the Leviathan raid will likely see a bump in required Power. It increased from 270 in the base game to 300 Power when Curse of Osiris released.

So, with Warmind, everything will receive a bump, and the new Power cap will reflect this, perhaps even the level cap.

How do you reach the new max level and max Power level cap? Well, you start by playing through the Warmind story and seeing where you land. However, according to a recent "This Week at Bungie" blog, the journey from 370 to 380 will be about as long as the journey from 340 to 370. To bridge those last few levels, players will need to fight through the most difficult content in the gain, specifically, the end-game content like Raids and Trials of the Nine.
