Perk Shard Locations

  • Reward for finishing Reported Crime: Welcome to Night City in Rancho Coronado.

  • Reward for an Assault in Progress east of Megabuilding H2.
    Two can be found at an Assault in Progress on Willow Street in Japantown, Westbrook. One each on the bodies in the trunk and driver seat.

  • Reward for an Assault in Progress in Northside, Watson, in a warehouse directly east of the Offshore St fast travel point.

  • Reward for an Assault in Progress in Santo Domingo, Arroyo, west and slightly south of the Red Dirt Bar fast travel point.

  • Go to the Edgewood Farm fast travel point in The Badlands, then drive north-west along the road. You'll notice a destroyed car under a billboard. Stop there and travel west a short distance, and you'll see another crashed car with a drone floating nearby. Kill the drone and loot the nearby corpse for the shard.

  • Travel to the Metro: Republic Way fast travel point in Corpo Plaza. Go east along the road, past the Drop Point, then turn around at the intersection. Go up the stairs and you'll see a large air conditioning unit next to a vending machine. Jump onto the air conditioning unit to find a corpse with the shard on it.

  • Two can be found at the Arasaka Industrial Park. One is in the security tower in the southern corner. The other is found by passing through the front gate, going past the first small building on the right, and then immediately turning right. You'll see double doors and another, single door. Go through the single door to find the shard in a briefcase. If it's locked, you can get to the other side through the underground area accessible from the security tower.

Perk Shard Notes & Tips

  • There used to be a bug that would give you 2 Perk Points from each shard if you pressed R instead of F to "Learn" it directly from the container, instead of picking it up. But this was fixed as of v1.3.

      I found one at an assault in progress in Santo Domingo just west of the Red Dirt Bar fast travel point. It's almost exactly to the west of the bar, there's a second assault in progress extremely close to the one with the perk shard so maybe clear them both if you don't find it at the first one.

        Wasn't sure where petrochem was in Rancho Coronado, its east of the "Rancho Coronado East" fast travel point, and right next to the only ripperdoc in Rancho

          I have the pistol shard in my inventory as a consumable which I used the duplicate glitch to make hundreds of them. Is there a trick to have skill shards move to inventory and not be used immediately?
