The Season of Defiance has come, and with it are a series of new Exotic Quests. But none are as difficult to unravel as //NODE.OVRD.AVALON// in Destiny 2. Here’s how to start //NODE.OVRD.AVALON// in Destiny 2.
All 6 Vex Cube Locations for //NODE.OVRD.AVALON// in Destiny 2
First things first. You’ll need Season 20, Season of the Defiance. Otherwise, this excursion will be a waste of time!
//NODE.OVRD.AVALON// is an interesting quest in that it offers no hints on how to start it or even that it exists at all. So, we’ll need to put in some leg work to trigger it.
Head to The Gulch in the EDZ. Once you’ve arrived through the quick travel point, you’ll see in the distance a small white vex cube. If you touch it, you’ll start a timer of 30 seconds. You’ll need to collect six Vex cubes within the allotted timeframe. Each time you grab a cube, you’ll get 10 seconds added to your timer.

For that reason, it’s a good idea to map out where all the Vex cubes are first. And the first cube you see, under the bridge, is the one you should go for last.
Vex Cube 1
Instead, pass right by it and jump up the cliff in front of you. There, between fallen logs, will be a Vex cube. Touch it.
Vex Cube 2
Off to the right near the cave where Cabal spawn
Vex Cube 3
Between the two signs along the road, near the valley
Vex Cube 4
Turn around then head to the North, past the open valley towards the trees. Grab that Vex node.
Vex Cube 5
From the valley, take the path up the hill. On your right at the top will be a Vex Cube.
Vex Cube 6
Jump down and grab the first Vex cube you saw when you spawned in.
If this pathing doesn’t work for you, that’s okay. Just locate all six Vex cubes first and you should be able to meet the time limit. Once you have all six Vex cubes, you’ll get the following notification:
“Simulated Cave Access Code: 53-43-53-49-42-45.”
The false back of a cave in this area has been revealed. To find the cave you need, look up into the sky. You should see a Vex distortion. Head towards it, and you’ll find a cave just below it. If it helps, there’s also a regional chest in this cave if you haven’t looted it yet.
Head to the very back of the cave, and you’ll soon see a Harpy in front of a Vex distortion. You can start the mission here, but note that the recommended power level is 1800. If you’re not 1800 yet, your power level will be increased to 1790.
