Haste is a power-up which occurs in Doom (2016), both in single and multiplayer games, which grants the player a period of dramatically increased speed. According to the UAC, the haste sphere contains a charged cloud of Soul-Breaker energy. When the sphere is disrupted, the energy accretes around the user as a temporary exoskeleton which accelerates the speed of all natural movement. Also according to the company's research, most subjects cannot survive the experience, and suffer a literal explosion of their heart once it wears off.
Haste lasts for 30 seconds, during which the player can move and turn faster, and can fire and reload weapons at a faster rate. While in use, a yellow haze surrounds the borders of the player's view, and swooshing sounds are made any time the player changes the direction in which they are moving.
Upgrades received through Praetor tokens in the "Powerup Effectiveness" category affect the haste power-up:
- Power Surge will unleash a blast wave when the haste effect expires.
- Healing Power restores health to maximum when haste is activated.
- Power Extender increases the duration of the haste effect.
