The latest expansion for Destiny 2 – Beyond Light — was released yesterday, and like many RPG’s, it’s main focus is increasing your character’s power through higher level gear.
Beyond Light’s new soft power cap is 1200 and it’s only been a day since the expansion launched, but players have already found a way to reach that level in no time at all. Of course, it involves an exploit with one of the earlier Lost Sectors in the game, Widow’s Walk in Trostland (EDZ). There is a high-value target wanted boss who resides in this Lost Sector, who always drops gear that’s 10 levels higher than your current power level.
Because you can refresh Lost Sectors by just exiting them and reentering, you can defeat the boss until you reach the 1200 level cap. It takes roughly 60 — 90 minutes. Of course, once reaching this cap, you’ll have to complete Pinnacle events to slowly increase your power level.
While you shouldn’t shortcut your way to the soft cap, if you do plan on doing so, be quick. Bungie is known for patching exploits rather fast, and a hotfix is likely on its way for this Lost Sector.
