Level 28? (Screengrabs) (Destiny)

That probably should read "weapons and abilities" or simply "attacks".

I think the current theory is that if the enemy's level is higher than your "effective level" given your base level and Light stat, your attacks deal less damage than normal. There's some scaling factor between 100% damage and 0% based on that difference in level.

So, getting more Light stat helps you get closer to 100% of your attack's damage against higher-leveled enemies, and has no additional bonuses against equal or lower-leveled enemies.

Your weapon stats are part of the equation for determining damage, but they aren't changed by your Light stat (at least not for any weapons we've seen so far).
