Node not found while node is in scene

Hello. I’m making a 3d game where you collect stuff while something chases you, but the 6th collectible keeps breaking the game. Apparently it’s because the node couldn’t be found, even though the node IS in the scene. This happened with the 5th collectible, which I had to remove because of it. I don’t know what’s happening with it. Can anyone help with it?

If I had to guess at the issue here, your variable or whatever you are doing to get the node, is trying to get it before it has been loaded into the scene.
