The threat pulse ready to be equipped.

The UAC threat pulse is an equipment item in Doom (2016) which is only available in multiplayer mode. It was initially added to the game in the Hell Followed downloadable content pack, before becoming available to all players by the 6.66 update.

"Emits a pulse radially from you that detects and displays nearby threats."

Tactical analysis[edit]

The threat pulse is a part of the preset Ambusher loadout, and it is unlocked through player progression at level 6 for use with custom loadouts.

The threat pulse reveals the location of opponents within a fixed radius around the player. Compared to the similar threat sensor item, the threat pulse is a purely portable item which has an effect that is always centered on the player's current location and has a larger area of effect.
