Argent Energy Tower

The Argent Energy Tower is a level in Doom (2016). Constructed by Dr. Samuel Hayden to collect the infinite Argent energy of Hell for use on Earth, it is the primary focus of all research on the UAC Mars Base. The fifth mission, also called Argent Tower, takes place here. This mission uses the music track "BFG Division". The super shotgun and the hologram are introduced here.

"Against Samuel Hayden's wishes, you stopped the production of Argent Energy and delayed the Hell Portal from opening. Still determined to bring the armies of Hell to this dimension, Olivia Pierce has taken an accumulator to the top of the Argent Tower and plans to use it to open a transdimensional rift, blowing open a portal into their world. This cannot happen. You must kill Olivia Pierce."

Description[edit]

The Argent Energy Tower was completed in 2127. It is also known as the Argent Inductor. The main purpose of the tower is to harvest Argent plasma directly from the Argent Fracture, convert and refine it into usable Argent energy, and then send the resulting energy packets to Earth's Global Energy Distribution Matrix.

The design of the Argent Energy Tower was based on the design of Gauss cannons, stated to have been first prototyped in the late 20th century. The actual methods by which the tower functions are well-guarded trade secrets of the UAC. Some speculate that the design was in fact influenced by or derived directly from information found in artifacts located near the Fracture.
