Wondering about the Helldivers 2 max level?

This co-op shooter just dropped on PlayStation and PC and has witnessed massive adoption. Its tactical gameplay and friendly fire drama has kept players engrossed enough to hit max level. Read on to know what Helldivers 2’s maximum level is.

For more on the game, check if Helldivers 2 is down and a guide on the best stratagems.

What is the Helldivers 2 max level cap

The original Helldivers let players hit 50 and we expect the Helldivers 2 max level to be the same. But Helldivers 2 players on Steam report a maximum level of 20 for the best gear. This makes sense as the best stratagems can currently be earned at level 20. Remember that Helldivers 2 treats its endgame differently. So while you might not level up a lot, you’ll keep earning Medals and Supercredits for more weapons and stratagems.

How long will it take to reach max level in Helldivers 2

If you succeed on most of your missions and keep amping up the difficulty levels for more rewards and XP, expect to hit max level in 40-50 hours of playtime. Not being able to secure secondary objectives and failing to clear missions within the time limit can pad up those hours even more.

Save some time for extraction

Even if you finish all the content in a mission, you need to return to the extraction point before the timer ends. So be mindful of how you spend your time.

We’ll update this guide once we reach max level ourselves and unlock the best gear in the game. It’ll take a while so dive in and start working towards those rewards. That covers the max level in the game. For more co-op shooter information, check if Helldivers 2 has crossplay support.
