Much like similar Obsidian titles, the max level cap in The Outer Worlds is 30. That means you can earn as much XP as you want up to that point, but once you reach level 30, completing quests won’t net you more. If you’re racing to max out your stats, completing as many quests as possible is the way to go. If you just play through the main story missions, it’s unlikely you’ll reach level 30 before finishing the game. 

You can also gain experience in The Outer Worlds by killing aliens and enemies but, this being an RPG, it’s not the most efficient way to quickly gain levels. Spend time talking to and helping out other denizens of the world and you’ll be far more likely to save up those levels quickly. If you’re not the meticulously minded player who likes to figure out each and every move, though, we recommend not stressing too much about your level and just enjoying the world.

Great! You’ve now learned the max level cap in The Outer Worlds so can plan your builds to contentment. Looking for more guides? We’ve got you covered. Why not start by making sure you also know how to holster your gun. We don’t all enjoy having a weapon shoved in our faces, you know.
