Destiny 2 is a multiplayer, RPG, first-person shooter game where only one thing matters, loot. The community of Destiny 2 is growing bigger with each day, and recent news even states that it might go free-to-play in the future.

However, the game reached all-time popularity following the trio of expansions – Curse of Osiris, Warmind, and Forsaken.

The article title suggests that we’re going to be discussing power leveling. And power leveling can be confusing after all three expansions. So that’s why we are giving you a guide to power leveling which breaks down everything you need to know.

3Level 50 is Important

The first goal for every new guardian is to reach level 50. Completing the story campaign has proven to be your best shot at this. Since you can acquire some pretty decent weapons along the way, it gives you the best shot of easy reaching this milestone. However, some of the weapons acquired will be more powerful than you can use, so these can be used later on as you progress.

In Destiny 2, your power level is the average of all your gear, and it is a measurement of your strength, both offensively and defensively. If you’re having trouble progressing through the main story, we suggest you do some side quests to get the power level rankings going.

A popular and widely used method of fast power leveling is by using the Destiny 2 Farm method which is purchasing power levels. These are recommended for seasoned veterans who know the ins and outs of the game and are looking for fast power leveling. If you’re interested in this, make sure to check this.

2The Road to 550 is Hard


As soon as you reach level 50 things get a lot easier since you can use any weapon you want. From this point onwards, your main objective is to power level as much as you can.

Power in the game is closely tied to the stats of your weapons. This is increased by getting better and better equipment since each gear has a certain power level attached to it. The average of all gear determines your power level.

Since most of the weapons you will be using will be blue and purple gear, it is recommended that you equip the highest all gear, regardless of stats just so you can reach the soft power cap.

In the latest expansion, the soft power cap is 500, with an additional 20 and 60 soft power cap that takes you to higher areas such as Dreaming City.

1Push It to the Limit


As soon as your power level reaches 500, the real fun begins. This is the point where you will start acquiring end-game gear through scouring the solar system for the best loot. One you acquire the best loot, you can then start taking on the eng-game raid “Last Wish”.

With power level 500 you can also explore the eng-game area, Dreaming City. You can also do Leviathan Raid, Curse of Osiris Raid, Eater of Worlds Raid, and the Warmind’s Raid, Spire of Stars.
