Where to Find Empowered Decryption Core Garden of Salvation Raid Secret?

To find the Garden of Salvation Empowered Decryption Core secret in Destiny 2 Shadowkeep, go through the portal that gets you to the garden. Once you teleport into the raid proper, do not proceed forward. Instead, turn around, and approach the edge of the ledge. Turn towards the garden entrance again. Now, turn to the left and step off the ledge. Turn around in the air, using your jetpack, and look for the hidden doorway. Fly inside, and you’ll find some sort of seal. It will tell you that it requires the Empowered Decryption Core.

How to Get Empowered Decryption Core in Destiny 2?

To get the Empowered Decryption Core, you’ll have to follow the Divine Fragmentation exotic quest, which, at the end, rewards you with the Divinity exotic weapon. The final step of this quest chain, called Key to Divinity, makes mention of the Garden of Salvation. If you’ve followed the quest chain to this point, our assumption is that you’ll have to complete the Garden of Salvation raid in order to receive the Empowered Decryption Core. Then, you can go back to the place we’ve described above, open it, and see what’s happened beyond.
