Use the best void builds for Warlock, Titan, or Hunter for the best results. Start by jumping on the first platform with enemies, and take them down.

  • The exact order for the first code is located on a wall on the right side of the platform.
  • Shoot the objects at the pillar in the order you saw, from top to bottom.
  • The second code is located on the left side of the pillar. Here you need to shoot four objects.

How to gather and enter data in NODE.OVRD.AVALON Secret Mission in Destiny 2

You must destroy enemies as they'll drop purple objects representing data you need to collect. When you gather enough of them, head to the center of the room and use them. The floor will disappear, and you'll fall. After you spawn to the arena, you'll need to repeat the process several times. While doing this, the Data Nullifier boss will appear.

Focus first on Harpies and Hobgoblins around you to beat the Data Nullifier boss in Destiny 2. When you clear one wave of them, attack the boss with full force. As soon as more enemies appear, retreat behind the wall and gun them down. After you beat the boss, follow the path out of the arena to the Node Core. On your way there, you'll face some enemies, but they're not as dangerous as falling from the platforms, so be careful!

  • When you enter the Node Core arena, you'll see Brakion. Instead of going after him, retreat to the defense position on the right side of the map.
  • Destroy enemies and focus on Brakion.
  • As soon as new enemies arrive, focus on them again.

The second phase of the Brakion boss fight

  • In the second phase of the battle, you need to chase him to another arena to override its access gate.
  • To do this, you must solve another five-orb puzzle. The object pattern is located on the left side of the arena, in the hole behind the wall. This position is also great for cover.
  • When you do this, the Brakion boss is no longer protected by a firewall (energy shield).
  • Unfortunately, the firewall will reboot after 25 seconds, so deal as much damage as possible.
  • Repeat the process with the orb puzzle to take down the firewall and attack Brakion.

  • Move all the time to avoid being surrounded by enemies while focusing firepower on Brakion.
  • With some luck, you'll defeat the boss and thus complete the NODE.OVRD.AVALON Secret Mission in Destiny 2.
