Dismantling Modules is, by far, the fastest way to get Kuiper Shards in The First Descendant. As the amount of Kuiper Chards you get from dismantling is equivalent to how much they are worth, you’ll want to dismantle higher-tier Modules.

The Void Intercept Missions are currently the most reliable way of getting Rare and Ultimate Modules, as these are some of the most difficult missions to complete in the game. However, you’ll want to make sure you have leveled your character sufficiently and are in a reliable squad so you can take these on as a team.

Alternatively, you can always obtain Modules of all types by completing any mission in The First Descendant. When you’ve collected a healthy supply of Modules, it’s time to head back to Albion for your Kuiper Shard haul!

How to Dismantle Modules to Get Kuiper Shards

To dismantle Modules in The First Descendant, you must head to Silicon on the far West side of Albion and select the “Dismantle Modules” option after engaging in dialogue. Then, select the Modules you would like to remove and select the “Dismantle” option to confirm your choice.
