What the Max Level Cap Is in Destiny 2
Destiny 2 does a lot of things differently from its predecessor. The open areas are filled with more to do, there are more NPCs, getting around is much easier, and there’s an actual map you can make use of (finally). But some things from the first Destiny are back, such as certain weapon types, a subclass here and there, and even limits for certain things players can obtain. And it just so turns out that the max level cap is one of them.
The max level cap is something many guardians are going to be shooting for as soon as they jump into Destiny 2. With so many changes going on, some of you might be wondering if the max level cap saw a change too, maybe to a more RPG-like level. 99? Nah, that’s insane and would take forever to reach. Instead, players will be working to reach the max level cap of 20 in Destiny 2, just like in the good ol’ days with vanilla Destiny. Don’t worry about the low number, though, you’re going to have to put in work to reach it, and you still have your Power/Light level to boost up if you want to make waves among the Cabal ranks (or any other alien ranks for that matter).
But at least you can rest knowing that once you hit level 20, you’ll have hit the max level cap and will be done with that part of the grind (though there are rewards for over-leveling in Destiny 2).
