What Are Perk Shards?

Cyberpunk 2077 Perk Shard 01.png
Perk Shards are a special type of consumable item found in Cyberpunk 2077. It immediately grants 1 Perk Point to the player, allowing V to gain a new skill or upgrade his current ones.

Two Instead of One Perk Point

If you find a Perk Shard, you will be given three possible options: Take All, Take, or Learn. Take All and Take will activate the shard immediately, awarding you 1 free Perk Point.

However, due to a glitch, if you choose to Learn it, it grants 2 free Perk Points, allowing you to learn more Perks.

There's no guarantee this glitch will continue to work in the future so take advantage of this glitch to level up your skills faster!

    • 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?

    • When I grapple NPCs I can see black patches flashing on the back of their head, shoulders, and back. Like they are rendering properly.
