In the sprawling metropolis of Night City, a chaotic and lawless district known as Dogtown emerges as the newest location in Cyberpunk 2077’s Phantom Liberty expansion. Here, the rules of society no longer apply, and the streets are overrun by ruthless gangs and the enigmatic Barghest faction. Brace yourself for intense battles as you navigate the dilapidated streets of Dogtown, but don’t fret—amidst the chaos, there are hidden treasures waiting to be discovered. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the perilous journey of finding the elusive Perk Shards in this electrifying new area of Cyberpunk 2077.
Perk Shard #1:
During the “Dog Eat Dog” mission, which serves as an introduction to the expansion, players must meet the mysterious Songbird at Pacifica Stadium. She tasks V with infiltrating Dogtown to fix the Relic. In the stadium’s underground parking area, after dealing with guards and navigating through the chaos, players can find the first Perk Shard hidden in the trunk of an old car to the left of an elevator. Acquiring this shard can be challenging, but those equipped with the double jump cyberware will find it easier to access. Alternatively, players can jump up from the lower level truck and reach the car with ease.
Perk Shard #2:
Once inside the stadium, players will encounter a bustling market area where a new junk vendor, portrayed by the game’s developers in cameo roles, offers various items. Among them is the sensory deprivation shard, which is, in fact, a Perk Shard costing $17,000. This unique vendor not only adds depth to the gameplay but also provides an opportunity for players to enhance their skills significantly.
Perk Shard #3:
The final shard is cunningly concealed within the Longshore Stacks area. To locate it, head to the end of a narrow hallway beneath the junk vendor and spot the crates. Destroy the stack of cardboard boxes on the left side, revealing the hidden Perk Shard inside a crate. Caution is advised, as the nearby Barghest guards might be alerted by the noise. Using a silenced weapon is a smart tactic to avoid unnecessary confrontations.
As players embark on this thrilling adventure in the Phantom Liberty expansion, they’ll encounter not only challenges but also exciting new weapons, clothing options, and useful items scattered throughout Dogtown. Furthermore, the addition of Perk Shards presents a unique opportunity for players to enhance their skills and abilities, giving them a significant advantage in the fierce battles that await.
Cyberpunk 2077’s Phantom Liberty expansion is now available on various platforms, including PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Dive into the heart of Dogtown and uncover its secrets while mastering the art of survival in this lawless district of Night City.
