What is the maximum level in the game and how many skill points will I have at maximum level?

This answer is outdated as of the 2019 Commander Lilith DLC, as noted in this answer

The max level in the Borderlands 2 base game is 50, giving you 45 skill points to spend. Gearbox actually has a character planner on their website (which can be found here) that should help you pick out your skills.

Borderlands 2's "Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack", available for $5 (or as part of the Season Pass DLC) can be purchased to increase the level cap from 50 to 61.

The Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge DLC further pushes the level cap to 72 for those who own it.

  • Looking at the char editor, you have 46 points to spend. You forgot the point at level 5?

    @WernerCD I didn't count the point at level 5 because that's the one you need to spend on your action skill to unlock your skill trees in the first place. Technically speaking though, you do get 46 skill points.

    @DiabloMonkey The level cap with UVHPack is sixty one. Can you please link to something proving it is 65?
