How to find the Avalon mission in Destiny 2

To earn Vexcaliber you must unlock and complete a secret mission called //node.ovrd.AVALON//, better known as Avalon.

To start the mission, you must visit The Gulch in the EDZ and touch six data nodes. Once you touch the first node, a timer starts and you will have 30 seconds to reach the next node. They can be done in any order and you can repeat the attempt if you run out of time.

The six Nodes are in these locations:

Once you have found all six nodes, a portion of the sky will be filled with Vex data. Below this point is a cave. Enter and a Harpy will be waiting to start you on the //node.ovrd.AVALON, or Avalon mission.

How to complete The Variable exotic quest in Destiny 2

Vexcaliber is the reward at the end of a four-part quest called The Variable. At the end of the mission you will be able to craft the weapon and customize it to fit your needs.

Discovering and completing the Avalon quest will complete the first three of these four steps:

  • Investigate the Gulch in the EPZ where the Guardians have reported anomalous objects.
  • Follow the fingerprints.
  • Explore the Vex network node in the EDZ and discover its secrets.
  • Take the Vex network item to the war table for analysis.

Once you have acquired Vexcaliber, open it in your inventory and extract the pattern. This will allow you to create and remodel Vexcaliber in the Enclave in the future. To view this content, please enable targeting cookies. Manage cookie settings
