Destiny 2 Raid Power Level 260-280, Says Luke Smith

The recommended Power Level for participating in the Destiny 2 Leviathan Raid has been revealed. After a long time of side-stepping the question, Bungie’s Luke Smith decided to tell the community how far they should grind. The Power Level you should have is unexpectedly less than the maximum of 300. The Leviathan Raid, the first one in Destiny 2, is scheduled to start on September 13th, at 10 AM Pacific Time.

What’s the Power Level for Destiny 2 Leviathan Raid?

The Power level for Leviathan, the first raid in Destiny 2, is from 260-280, according to Luke Smith’s Twitter. This is a little lower than what players have been expecting, so it’s safe to assume that a lot of players will be able to take part. The raid will star at 10 AM Pacific Time, on September 13th.

Don’t get to comfy if you meet the recommended Power Level, though. It’s still a raid, and you’re gonna need both high Power, skill, and a well-coordinated team. If you’re under the recommended level, you can check out our Destiny 2 How to Level Up Fast guide.

For those of you that are new to Raids in Destiny, they are co-op missions for six players. The game leaves most things for the participating Guardians to figure out, offering almost no hand-holding. As a result, Raids can get pretty difficult. In Destiny 1, Raids had two difficulty settings, Normal and Hard. First, you had to beat the Raid on Normal, so that you got to know how everything works. After that, you got to play it on Hard, where, as you’d expect, the game ramps up the difficulty significantly. It switches up some things in how the raid works, so, even if you completed it on Normal, you’ll still have to use your head, put all of your skills and abilities to the test, and, most importantly, communicate with your team.
