The character's level is a game mechanic which was implemented in Alpha 11. The player character begins the game at level 1. Experience is gained by various activities including killing Zombies, harvesting resources, using schematics, building, repairing, looting and crafting items. The character will increase in character level once enough experience has been gained.
The starting experience is 0, which places you at level 1. You can view the experience needed to reach the next level on the Character Menu.
The level cap, or maximum level achievable by the player, is 300.
