What are Datashards?

Datashards are Items which reveal information about the story of the game.

They are not necessary to proceed with the story, but will provide deeper information into the world of Cyberpunk 2077.

How to Find Datashards

Datashards can be found scattered around the world both outdoors and indoors. They can often be found placed innocently on tables, or on the bodies of defeated enemies.

Based on the Datashards we have collected so far, it seems that each Datashard appears in multiple locations, so missing a Datashard in one-time locations like Konpeki Plaza doesn't mean you will miss out on 100% completion.

    • In the crafting screen, would love to see a comparison between what I'm currently equipped with vs what I've selected to craft. In the Inventory screen, I have no idea where any extra weight is without going into each category (weapons, clothes, etc). Please add some sort of weight indicator next to each category so I know exactly where I seem to be overloaded. In the Map, please mark completed items (assault in progress, access points), grey out the icons or something similar?

    • If I fail or cancel out of an access point, the mini-game will not load up, you'll just get the jack in/Jack out animations but the mini-game will no longer appear.
