Can be Purchased from the Junk Shop in Dogtown

Owners of the Phantom Liberty DLC will be able to purchase a Perk Shard from the Junk Shop vendor once they reach the EBM Petrochem Stadium inside Dogtown. Do note that this is a one-time purchase since the merchant's inventory will no longer refresh after you purchase the Perk Shard.
