Borderlands 3 Max Level Cap

Borderlands 3 Level Cap – What is the Max Level in Borderlands 3 in 2021?

To begin by answering the question, the current max level cap in Borderlands 3 is 72, after the June 24th update in 2021. Gearbox Software and 2K Games released Borderlands 3 on September 13, 2019, with a starting level cap at 50. Since then Borderlands 3 has received multiple DLCs and game updates with the latest introducing the 72 max level limit and crossplay.

Once your character hits level 72, any experience you receive will only count towards your Guardian Rank. The Guardian Rank has no limit as its purpose is to reward you with tokens that increase your stats and allow you to unlock skills in the Enforcer, Survivor, and Hunter trees after you finish the main story of Borderlands 3.

Now let's proceed to answer all Borderlands 3 level and progression questions, starting with reciting all the Borderlands 3 level cap increases.

When Will the Borderlands 3 Level Cap Increase?

At the moment, we don't know if and when the level cap will increase further. However, the max level Borderlands 2 was 80, so we can assume that Borderlands 3 will follow a similar pattern. Celebrating the 2nd anniversary since the release of the game on September 13, 2021, with a new DLC and a final increase in the level cap by 8 levels would be very fitting.

How Many Skill Points Do You Need to Reach a Capstone

25 points, if you spend points depth-first and don't spend any unnecessary points on the same tree level (horizontally). You will have to reach level 29 for that.

Can You Unlock All 3 Capstones?

As we mentioned, getting to the bottom of a tree to unlock a capstone requires 25 skill points. At level 72, you have 68 skill points, so you can only unlock two capstones. To max out all three trees and unlock all three capstones, you must have 75 skill points. If the max level is increased to 80, players will unlock all three capstones at level 79 when they hit the 75 skill point mark.

You can unlock 2 capstones at level 54 when you have 50 skill points.
