Destiny 2 Beyond Light Power Cap Guide – What Is The Max Power Cap?

Know the new max power caps for soft, hard, and pinnacle caps.

Destiny 2 Beyond Light is all set to kick start on the 10th of November, 2020. It was already known that the new power cap was about to increase with Beyond Light, and now the developers have confirmed the new level caps for soft, hard, and pinnacle caps. There’s also an addition of a new raid that will require power level 1230 to start. In this Destiny 2 Beyond Light power cap guide, we will discuss the new max levels for each cap.

What are The Max Level Caps in Destiny 2 Beyond Light?


Coming straight to the point, the three max power level caps in Destiny 2 Beyond Light are:

  • Soft Cap – 1200 Power
  • Hard Cap – 1250 Power
  • Pinnacle Cap – 1260 Power

One thing that you need to know is that measures like collecting bounties and turning it into vendor tokens to reach the soft level will no longer work. Bungie has put an end to such measures that helps you get to the soft level at ease. Hence, you will have to put in all your hard work this time.

With the end of bounties usage for reaching soft skills, reaching their might seem tough, but it isn’t. You can still easily get to the soft level cap by simply playing the campaign mode and completing all the missions. There are also Crucible matches and Heroic Public events to level up your power level. It only requires Rare (Blue) and Legendary (Purple) gears to hit the soft cap.

Once you are at the soft cap, that’s when things will slowly start to turn challenging. Progressing further from the soft cap to the max hard level cap of 1250 will be much slower. You will need to farm Prime Engrams and participate in Crucible Matches and complete Strikes to level your way up to the hard cap.


After reaching the hard cap, moving beyond the pinnacle cap of 1260 will be the toughest task for you. You will need to complete some pinnacle activities including the upcoming Raids in Beyond Light to get to the max level of pinnacle cap.
