DOOM Elite Guards are basically security personnel tasked with the duty of safeguarding the Lazarus Project and maintaining law and order throughout the Argent Facility.
As with other collectibles, Elite Guards are scattered throughout the in-game world and can be found to obtain Research Tokens. Once a Research Token has been found, it can be used in order to upgrade the Praetor Suit.
