Dark Souls 3 uses Soul Level + Upgrade Level to determine multiplayer ranges. If a player has a weapon at +10, they can be matched with players who have +7 or more. If a player has no upgrades, they can be paired with players with up to +2 weapons.
Players have deduced that weapons that only go to +5 operate as double their numbers. So +1 is +2, +2 is +4, etc.
*Even if you no longer have a weapon of the max level you managed to upgrade, the game "remembers" what is the max upgraded level you had.
|Player A Highest Upgrade||
Player B Highest Upgrade
