Reaching the level cap is an important milestone in Outriders and is actually much lower than most players expected. In an RPG like Outriders, reaching the max level means you will have access to all of your skills and start farming to find the best equipment. Tons of people race through the story, grinding side quests to get the level as fast as possible. However, there are ways to get gear well above the level cap if you want to take on a challenge. Here is the maximum level cap and the highest world tier in Outriders.
What is the Outriders Level Cap?
The maximum level in Outriders is 30. However, opponents in Outriders can reach much higher levels due to the game’s World Tier and Challenge Tier system, which increases the strength of the enemy in exchange for better loot and higher rewards. While there is currently no way for players to level above 30 (at least until DLC is available), enemies and gear can reach a maximum level of 50.
What is the highest level in the world?
The highest world level for Outriders is 15. If you are doing endgame expeditions, the highest challenge level is also 15. The higher your world or challenge level, the more powerful the enemies become. Increasing the world level or challenge level actually increases the level of the enemies, and this can exceed the cap of 30. At world level 15 on standard missions, enemies and equipment can drop to level 42. The maximum enemy and item level is 50 when playing Challenge Tier 15 on an expedition.
To recap, the maximum level your character can reach is 30, but you can get items and face enemies up to level 50 if you increase the difficulty high enough. However, updates and DLC could potentially increase the maximum cap in the future, so a new expansion could open up new challenges and bring new skills to unlock.
Outriders is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and Google Stadia available.
