Enter the enemy ship, and hack their navigation console to redirect their path. At the start of deception missions, a datamass will spawn next to the Tenno. It can be picked up with the X  key, but will prevent the carrier from using their Primary Weapon. Take the datamass through the mission and place it in the enemy navigation console.

—In-Game Description

The Deception mission is a variant of the Sabotage mission, requiring a player to take a datamass to a terminal at the ship's navigation core, upload the datamass to the target, and then escape to extraction.

Upon picking up the datamass, the player will be limited to the use of their secondary and melee weapons. If the player switches to their primary or is incapacitated, they will drop the datamass. These types of missions can therefore prove difficult when playing alone.
