Shards in four styles (from left to right): Entropism, Kitsch, Neomilitarism, Neokitsch

A datashard, commonly abbreviated to shard, are readable items in Cyberpunk 2077, which can contain various forms of information, including: text, images, maps, schematics, audio, videos and braindances. While there are a few shards used in quests which contain more than just textual information, the majority of those found in-game contain only text and can be picked up and optionally read for extra information or lore pertaining to the Cyberpunk universe. Each shard found in-game will be catalogued into the player's journal after being picked up. The player can choose to read them immediately or at a later time.

This is a catalogue of all shards in Cyberpunk 2077 organized by category. For locations and transcripts, please refer to the individual articles.

Encrypted

Some shards you find in the world will contain information hidden behind data encryption measures. To decrypt a shard, first either open it through the notification when you acquire it or find it later in the Shards tab under Journal in the main menu. Then, select CRACK SECURITY to unlock its secrets.
