Argent Energy Cell - Picked Up


An Argent Energy Cell is a collectible item in DOOM. 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. Most levels have one Argent energy cell, but two have two cells each, and the very first level and the last two levels have none. There are twelve Argent cells in the game, and collecting them all will enable the player to upgrade his three attributes four times each. Furthermore, at the time it is collected, each Argent cell will replenish whichever attribute was chosen (including ammo) to the new max.
