Perk Shards are a type of progression item that is confirmed to still exist as of Update 2.0. When found and used, they immediately grant 1 Perk Point to the player, allowing V to gain a new Perk from any of the overhauled, 2.0 Attribute Perk Trees.
Previously, there was a glitch allowing you to get 2 Perk Points from Perk Shards when you chose to Learn instead of Take the shard from its source. This glitch no longer works as of Patch 2.0.
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.
