With the Season just launching, some Powerful Reward sources might be missing here. We will update this page as we learn more!

Season Power-Caps

SOFT CAP: 1250

Acquire loot in the wild or participate in activities to level yourself up. This portion of levelling is quick and many sources help boost your overall power levels. Refrain from completing or acquiring any Weekly Challenges during this phase of levelling.

HARD CAP: 1320

Additional Weekly Challenges unlock at this phase of levelling. Once you reach the soft cap, generic reward drops do not help boost your power. Complete Weekly Challenges and acquire Exotic/Prime engrams to continue levelling up.


At this phase, only Pinnacle Rewards help boost your power. These sources are considered end-game level activities and require more focus. Pinnacle sources drop at +1 or +2 depending on the pinnacle source. Pinnacle cap is the max cap of the season.


Pinnacle Rewards [+2]

Complete higher difficulty content to earn Pinnacle rewards. Pinnacle gear will allow you to reach up to 1330 power this season. 

Pinnacle Rewards will grant you high boosts to power as you are leveling through the hard cap. Once you reach 1320 power, focus on completing these activities to boost your power to Pinnacle Cap

Note: Not all higher difficulty content is matchmaking-enabled. For the best experience, we recommending forming a fireteam to tackle these activities!
