Each new Destiny 2 season brings more than just a new narrative. In addition to all the balance changes, the maximum power level also increases, giving all the Guardians more room to improve upon their already successful formula.
From 300 to 1300, the maximum power level keeps on growing. Countless adventures await players to reward them with new loot, helping them keep up with the ever-moving Destiny 2 universe. Starting with the Season of the Undying, using Pinnacle gear has been the prime way of increasing your power level behind the maximum cap, and you’ll need to complete certain missions to get your hands on Pinnacle gear.
Here are the max power levels in all Destiny 2 seasons.
|Destiny 2 base game||300|
|Curse of Osiris||330|
|Moments of Triumph event||400|
|Season of the Outlaw||600|
|Season of the Forge||650|
|Season of the Drifter||700|
|Season of Opulence||750|
|Season of the Undying||950 (960 with Pinnacle gear)|
|Season of Dawn||960 (970 with Pinnacle gear)|
|Season of the Worthy||1000 (1010 with Pinnacle gear)|
|Season of Arrivals||1050 (1060 with Pinnacle gear)|
|Season of the Hunt||1250 (1260 with Pinnacle gear)|
|Season of the Chosen||1300 (1310 with Pinnacle gear)|
|Season of the Splicer||1310 (1320 with Pinnacle gear)|
There’s a clear pattern when it comes to the maximum power levels in Destiny 2. Each season’s maximum power level with Pinnacle gear becomes the base cap of the next season. In most cases, raids and dungeons will be your best friend when it comes increasing your power level as quickly as possible. Taking down individual clan bounties can also be an alternative and fun way of quickening the process and is usually more fun than grinding at the same spots.
