What is the Max Weapon Level in Destiny 2?

It's all worth the grind!

Bungie introduced a new crafting system with the Destiny 2 Witch Queen expansion. And thanks to the crafting system, weapons now have levels. Each weapon has its own level, but you can unlock most of the perks for your weapon at Weapon Level 20.

This Weapon Level shouldn't be confused with its Power Level. The Weapon Level determines what perks and attachments you can use on your weapon, while the Power Level determines how strong and effective your weapon is. In terms of the Weapon Level, you can push past level 20 if you want to, but it doesn't add anything of value to the weapon.

Although it looks as if there isn't any Power Cap on your weapon, you won't be able to push it past 1560. That happens to be the Power Cap for this season. You can easily carry over this weapon into the next season and power it up there, as well.

Here are the complete seasonal caps for Season of the Risen:

  • Power floor (base): 1350
  • Soft cap: 1500
  • Powerful cap: 1550
  • Pinnacle cap (upper limit): 1560
