What is a Seasonal Exotic Mission without secrets and chests that are slowly drip fed to us? Here are all secret chests in the Vexcalibur Exotic Missoin node.ovrd.Avalon in Destiny 2 (week 2).
All Secret Chests in the Vexcalibur Exotic Mission node.ovrd.Avalon in Destiny 2 (Week 2)
Now that we have Vexcalibur, multiple secret chests are now available to us. More will become accessible over time, but as of March 15, 2023 / the Second Week of Defiance, these are the four we can access.
Secret Chest 1.
At the start of the Vexcalibur mission, crouch through the first door and immediately turn around. You’ll see in the top left a green symbol. Using the platform on the wall to your right, jump up to it. You’ll get the notification that substrate authorization fragmentation is nullified.
Continue as normal, heading towards the Vex River. Take the path left, and you’ll see right before the door to the slide that there’s a new barrier near the top of the ceiling. You’ll need Vexcalibur equipped to bypass this barrier.
Hold the charge button to use it to pass through.
This will spawn a chest right beside you which will immediately open. You’ll get 2,500 Glimmer, M1R Distribution Matrix II, and the Data Retrieval: Substrate Triumph.
Secret Chest 2.
Continue the slide down into the next section as normal but stop once you get to the bottom of it. Do not jump into the ring that will take you to the next part of the mission.
At the bottom of the slide, look up. There will be a platform. Jump up to it, then interact with the neon symbol.
The other symbol we’ll need to find is actually on the opposite side of the wall. So, jump down and continue into the room where the ring is, as well as the Hobgoblin behind a barrier. Jump to the Hobgoblin’s platform, then turn around. Near the ceiling will be another platform and another artifact to interact with.
Secret Chest 3.
The next chest will be accessible after you’ve done the first section’s puzzle and beaten back the Vex hoard. You’ll see the following sight.
Climb on top of the giant blue rectangle. In the middle of it there will be a crevice with another green sigil. Interact with it. Return to the top of the blue rectangle and you’ll see that another place to input a code will appear. To get the code, we’ll need to jump our way to the top of the adjacent building, then jump into a nook.
From this nook, we’ll be able to see the access code.
Input it, and the chest will open up beside you.

Secret Chest 4.
Final chest accessible this week! You’ll be able to get this chest after beating the Vex-Gambit boss. Do the jumping puzzle as normal until you find the giant orb jump shooter.
Take the jump, but don’t go down the stairs yet. We’ll need to hit three shapes. The first shape will be above your head.
The second shape will be to your right, just below the edge of the platform you’re on.
The final shape will require you to jump down the first step. But don’t go any farther. Look up, and there will be a ledge you can jump to.
Do so, and there will be another shape right above you. Once you shoot it, the chest will spawn. With all these chests done, you’ll unlock the Triumphs Data Retrieval: Cannonball, Disposal Subject, Aberrant Subject, and Substrate. There are still three secrets to go!
