- For the lore term, see Argent plasma.
An Argent Energy Cell is a collectible item in Doom (2016). These consist of white chests with small glass spheres containing volatile plasma energy.
When collected, the player gains an additional attribute point to be spent on one of the three attributes: max health, ammo, or armor. Each level has at least one or two Argent energy cells, sometimes hidden, except for the very first level. There are fifteen Argent cells in the game, and collecting them all will enable the player to upgrade his three attributes five times each. Furthermore, at the time it is collected, each Argent cell will replenish whichever attribute was chosen (including ammo) to the new max.
