Bungie’s Destiny 2 has been out on console for a matter of days now, so it’s only to be expected that the more devoted of players are already reaching the level cap and beginning their endgame grind. One popular way of searching for those boosts to the all-important power level is taking part in Public Events which spawn regularly across all locations, though it’s possible to upgrade these encounters to Heroic Public Events for some additional benefits.

Something that many Destiny 2 players don’t seem to realize is that the effort to activate a Heroic Public Event is ultimately worthwhile, as the encounter will then grant better rewards, including: higher level drops, a larger amount of glimmer, and an upgraded chance of receiving a legendary or exotic engram. With that in mind, players who are looking to grind their guardians to the highest levels would be better off taking the time to meet the Heroic requirements.


Right now, Destiny 2 has a varied amount of endgame content for players to enjoy, but the incentive to upgrade characters to the max currently seems to be focussing around the mysterious Leviathan raid which Bungie is planning to release on Wednesday. Right now, there’s no way to tell what power level the first piece of post-launch content will require players to surpass, so the dedicated fanbase is going all out to ensure that they are prepared.

Once players hit level 265, the game reaches a point where it seems impossible to progress – but there are ways to work around the presumed level cap. Through carefully planning when to infuse equipment and complete rewards, it is currently possible to surpass these power levels entirely, with some players claiming to have made it all the way up to level 300 or higher.

Destiny 2 is out now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC release planned for October 24th.
