Resource Operations

Resource Operations, also known in short as "Res Ops", is a level in Doom (2016). It is the main communications center for the UAC Mars Base. Mission 2, Know Your Enemy, takes place in this level. The chainsaw and the heavy assault rifle are introduced in this level.


Resource Operations was one of the earliest structures built on Mars after the Argent Fracture was discovered. Besides communications and networking, functions contained in the area include plasma processing, mining of ores and metals, isotope stabilization, and analysis of artifacts. Employees at the UAC Mars Facility are assigned to a tenure in Res Ops before moving on to specialized roles.
