Getting to power level 900 is the most important thing to do
When Bungie announced the massive changes that have happened to Destiny 2, they let us know that no matter what your current power level was, everyone was going to be power level 750 moving forward.
It didn’t matter if you were a noob, just starting in Destiny 2 free-to-play version — often called New Light — or a hardened veteran of many campaigns, your base level moving forward would be the same. However, all the best content in Destiny 2 doesn’t really kick in until you reach the soft level cap of 900. We are here to help reach that level cap as soon as possible.
What are the level caps?
In Destiny 2, your power level (PL) — previously called light level — is the way to determine your ability to tackle certain foes. The higher your PL, the easier a lot of the enemies in the game become. Of course, the opposite is true too. If your PL is too low, your guns do less damage, and if you enter an event that your PL is insufficient for, you might not be able to hurt any of the enemies at all.
The “soft level cap” of 900 is the point at which the game gets much harder, and it’s where you start to accomplish more challenging events that give you “powerful gear.” Powerful gear drops at above 900 PL and can be collected by completing high-level tasks.
There are two other level caps — one at 950 and one at 960 — that you can reach, but to do that, you will need to complete Raids and other endgame content, as well as use the new Artifact to help you.
