Praetor tokens are an item in the 2016 Doom which can be obtained from the suits of fallen UAC elite guards. These chips can be utilized by the Doom Slayer's Praetor suit to unlock and upgrade its latent capabilities.
Elite guards are cybernetic super-soldiers clad in a specialized red suit of armor. They were created as security forces for the UAC Mars Base.
They are described as having been "level-headed" and "firm but fair," and their red armor was said to create a calming effect on other UAC personnel. They were given cybernetic enhancements in order to prepare them for dealing with nearly any situation. Due to these enhancements, a precautionary kill switch was built into the suits of all these guards, which could be triggered by a Lazarus Wave. The only UAC employees with access to this protocol were Samuel Hayden and Olivia Pierce.
When Olivia triggered the initial demonic invasion of the base, the elite guards initially played a role in attempting to quell the outbreak. It is assumed that any elite guards who were not killed by the demons were terminated by Olivia, using the kill switch protocol.
The bodies of the elite guards appear to be in better shape than other UAC combat force corpses, and no possessed security or possessed soldiers appear to have been derived from them, as none of them bear the distinct red armor.
