Destiny 2: How to move beyond power level 260

Bungie has confirmed how players can move past Destiny 2 power level 260, which acts as something of a soft cap for the shared-world shooter. 

Guardians will be required to reach a higher power level in order to stand the best chance at beating the Raid and taking part in the Trials.

The best way to do this is by participating in activities that specifically reward high-level gear, such as the weekly Nightfall, Flashpoints, Call to Arms, and Clan bonuses. You can also give the Raid and Trials a go too as they reward rare items, although it’ll be considerably harder at a lower power level.

The reason why you’ll need to take part in these specific events is that Rare gear will begin slowing down at around 260/265. Prior to that, hitting the 260 mark could be achieved comfortably enough by completing pretty much any tasks, including Public Events and the Crucible.

Opening Luminous Engrams is the best way to receive more powerful gear, and these only drop at high-end activities like those described above. 

Destiny 2 is out now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC version arriving on October 24. The Raid is due to roll out today, with Xur, Agent of the Nine arriving on Friday and Iron Banner launching at some point next month. 

The game topped the U.K. All Format Chart upon release, although failed to match the initial success of its predecessor back in 2014. However, Bungie recorded 1.2 million concurrent players on Friday, so it’s obviously proving popular among gamers at this early stage.

Sony recently addressed the ongoing PS4 Pro crashing issues on Twitter, assuring gamers that a fix is in the works.
