Destiny 2 – Data Cache locations: Where to find Data Caches explained

Where to find all locations up to Week 5.

Destiny 2’s Data Caches are location-based chests scattered around the Shattered Realm.

Seeing a debut during Season of the Lost, and working in a similar way to Atlas Skews, they are part of a seasonal activity.

This page explains where to find Data Caches in the Shattered Realm to complete both seasonal challenges and secret triumphs for your collection.

How Data Caches in Destiny 2 work

Data Caches work in a similar fashion to Trivial Mysteries, Enigmatic Mysteries and Ascendant Mysteries. This is reflected in both the way in which you obtain them and the fact that they come up in some seasonal challenges, as well as being secret triumphs.

In particular, they require for you to have all Wayfinder’s Compass abilities unlocked, including Barrier Breach, True Sight, Safe Passage, Barrier: Enhanced Breach and Sight: Frequency Echoes. All of these can be obtained by following the Wayfinder’s Voyage storyline. Meaning you won’t have to worry about missing any until you’re caught up with the seasonal questline up to week 4.

Each seasonal challenge involving Data Caches requires finding a certain number of them to complete; once again it doesn’t matter which area of the Shattered Realm you find them from, so feel free to collect any as you go from week-to-week. If you don’t see any related challenges, bear in mind that they all have several triumphs attached to them.

Now, let’s see where those Data Cache locations are.

Harbingers Data Cache location

This Data Cache is found in Shattered Realm: Debris of Dreams – debuting during Week 5 of the season – and is recommended you unlock Sight: Frequency Echoes by completing the mission once first.

The Harbingers can be found around The Vista area. To access it, it’s best if you first complete both beacons.

This is your starting point.

Using the location of the first beacon as reference, we’re going to take the path down below that goes around it.

It’s rather straightforward from here – just keep on heading upwards until you see the True Sight device.

Activate it and follow the floating path all the way to the other side. There’s a plateau in the middle that you can use for a quick stop, but honestly, it’s fairly linear from here.

Once you arrive at The Vista, which is that floating island on the other end of this path, you will see a flying orb of sorts.

This is your Data Cache. Approach it and follow the prompt to open it.

That’s all for Harbingers!

Corsair’s Tale Data Cache location

This Data Cache is found in Shattered Realm: Debris of Dreams – debuting during Week 5 of the season – and is recommended you unlock Sight: Frequency Echoes by completing the mission once first.

The Corsair’s Tale Data Cache can be found around The Overlook area. To access it, it’s best if you first complete both beacons.

We’re going to be taking the same path that we did for the Refined Power Enigmatic Mystery, in case it makes for a helpful reference point.

In addition, we have a short video that can provide further guidance – up to the 0:46 seconds mark.

Your main location is The Industrial Facility. This can be accessed from the location of the drill event.

This is your starting point.

The Industrial Facility is pretty much on a straight line from here. Just double jump across to the other side until you stumble upon the True Sight device.

After you land on the area, you’re going to head towards the room that has a barrier blocking the door – it’s found on ground level.

Use the breach device next to the door, and once inside, hop on the glowing platform to teleport yourself to The Overlook.

All you have to do here is activate the True Sight device that is just before the cliff, opposite to the big cylinder-looking structure, and hop on the floating platforms towards the right side instead of going forward.

The path will eventually lead you to a secluded structure with an open door. Hop inside to find the Data Cache on the other end, next to the chest.

Activate the Data Cache and that will be all for Corsair’s Tale.


Season of the Lost is here, with new Exotics such as the Ager’s Scepter and the long-awaited arrival of crossplay. New activities include the Wayfinders Voyage, the Astral Alignment activity and finding Atlas Skew, Trivial Mystery, Enigmatic Mystery, Ascendant Mystery, Data Cache, Parallax Trajectory and Ascendant Anchor locations. Elsewhere, we’ve seen new Nightfall weapons such as the Uzume RR4, Plug One.1 and Hung Jury SR4. Other recent new features include transmog and materials Synthstrand, Synthcord and Synthweave, the Splicer Gauntlet and Decrypted Data used to upgrade it.


The Conjuring Data Cache location

This Data Cache is found in Shattered Realm: Debris of Dreams – debuting during Week 5 of the season – and is recommended you unlock Sight: Frequency Echoes by completing the mission once first.

This one is a bit tricky to follow – in case it helps, we’ll be taking the same path that we used for The First Rule Ascendant Mystery.

The Conjuring Data Cache can be found in The Ruined Outpost area – although this occurs on a path that needs some previous steps to get there.

This is your starting point.

We’re taking the location of the second beacon as a starting point. From where you’re currently standing, head inside the broken facility and towards the tube-shaped structure in the middle.

It has some stairs that don’t function as regular ones, but double jumping your way up will do the trick. Once on the top, you will notice two enemies tinkering with the door’s padlock.

Interact with said padlock and head into the room – expect a fight here.

After you’ve taken all of the enemies down, you’re going to go through the door locked with a barrier – use the breach device that is right next to it to get inside.

The path is straightforward enough from here. Keep on going up the stairs (watch out for the traps!) until you see another door locked by a barrier.

Use the barrier breach next to it and head outside.

Move to the right side until you see a True Sight device. This is the last step – go ahead and activate it.

From where you’re standing, the Data Breach will appear on the path you’ve just came from. Go ahead and interact with it.

That’s all for The Conjuring.

That’s all for Debris of Dreams for the time being!
