I was just wondering if there's any limit for how many xp levels you can have in Minecraft. And if so what is it?


If you try to gain to much xp through commands the xp bar will dissapear, as well as your level on your HUD. This shold to occur around level 32,767.

The maximum XP that you can earn from the /xp command is 2,147,483,647 levels. The maximum experience level is 24,791 (With just /xp).

Without glichess or additions to Minecraft the maximum xp level is 32,767 this is using the /xp #L command, where /xp is the level and L increases the person's level.

Yes, there is a limit.

The level limit obtainable using the /xp command is 32,767, which is signed 16 bit integer.

The maximum level you can obtain without the XP command is 24,791.

However, like most limits in Minecraft, it is near impossible to the limit. Bottles o' Enchanting gives 3-11 XP, and Chicken Jockeys gives 22 XP.

You'd need use 920548415 to 251058658 Bottle o' Enchantings, or you'd need to kill 125529329 Chicken Jockeys to get to level 24,791. (Or somehow find a way to respawn Ender Dragon, you'd need to kill 230137 of them)


Yes there is a limit.

The current max xp is:

2,147,483,647 levels for [Java Edition] or 24,791 levels [Bedrock Edition]
