A shard ripped from a Sentient Anomaly in the Veil Proxima. Little Duck is known to trade these for exotic goods somewhere in Fortuna.

—In-game Description

Anomaly Shard is an item that can obtained from completing Sentient Anomalies in the Veil Proxima. Anomalies are completed by killing 20 Sentient enemies aboard the anomaly, and each completion awards one shard. These can be traded with Little Duck to obtain the Tenebrous Ephemera and Sentient Anomaly Captura scenes, for 15 and 10 shards respectively.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Resource Boosters and similar effects (e.g. Smeeta Kavat's Mod TT 20px.pngCharm) do affect the number of shard drops.
  • Upon completion of the anomaly, all players, regardless of their location in the mission, will receive the shard.
  • [BUG] Completing an anomaly while in a voidrig necramech will NOT give the player an anomaly shard (bonewidow not tested yet). If using a necramech to clear out the sentients in the anomaly the player should exit the necramech before killing the last sentient to still recieve the drop. (This was tested and confirmed, when doing the anomaly as the last objective. This has not been tested if the anomaly was done before the other objectives. Tested and confirmed when doing the anomaly before the final objective, anomaly shards are not awarded while in the voidrig necramech.)

Patch History[edit | edit source]

Update 27.4

  • The Sentient Anomaly in the Veil Proxima now has no downtime - it rotates every 30 minutes to a different node with no downtime in between.

Update 27.2

  • Fixed inability to Chat link Anomaly Shards even if you have some in your Inventory.


  • Fixed UI bug where the End of Mission screen would display 2 Anomaly Shards, even though you received 1 upon completing the Sentient Anomaly POI.
    • For further clarification, the Anomaly Shard is given when you complete the Sentient Anomaly POI, not an End of Mission reward for completing the entire mission itself (Fighters, Crewships, etc).
  • Fixed getting an Anomaly Shard on subsequent runs without having to complete the Sentient Anomaly POI.

Hotfix 27.0.12

  • Introduced.
