How Leveling Works in Destiny 2
The leveling system in Destiny 2 is directly tied to the Power Level of your gear. This means that the game takes the combined average Power Level between every piece of Armor and every Weapon you have equipped, in your inventory, and even in your Vault to give you your current standing. The benefit of this is that it allows you to focus on upgrading specific gear slots if they are bringing your average down. The drawback is that it is very common to have one weapon or Armor slot that is always lagging behind.
Additionally, you also have different level caps – known as the Soft, Powerful / Hard, Pinnacle, and Max Caps – that can only be reached by earning specific gear. The higher your Power Level gets, the more specific the gear you earn will have to be. This means that when you’re first starting out and going after the Soft Cap, any Rare, Legendary, or Exotic gear will help you level up. But once you hit Powerful and Pinnacle caps, you have to focus on specific gear types known as Powerful and Pinnacle Gear.
Now your Max Power Cap can only be achieved by hitting Pinnacle and fully upgrading your Seasonal Artifact. That’s a slightly different system, so we’ll tackle that here in a bit.
