Where to find Skyburners Command Beacon

If you don’t already have it, you should go on Patrol or Strike in Hull Breach and kill Cabal soldiers. They will randomly drop the beacon, which looks like a shiny trinket. Pick all the drops up, and soon enough, you’ll have one.

Enter the cargo bay of the crashed Cabal ship at Hull Breach (under the middle thruster). Turn left and look for a terminal in the corner. When you approach it, you’ll get the option to activate Skyburners Command Beacon. The door leading into the ship will open after a while, and you’ll be attacked by a bunch of Cabal and a boss with a minigun. When you kill the boss, he’ll drop the Skyburners Deployment Codes (another shining trinket on the ground).
