Twitch streamer and former level designer at Sledgehammer Games, Dr Disrespect, has revealed a new map design he's been working on in the style of the 2v2 mode in Modern Warfare, complete with a walkthrough.

The upcoming Call of Duty game, releasing October 25, features a new 2v2 mode called Gunfight, where players face off in round-based matches on compact maps.

The mode was well-received when it was made playable in its alpha state, and the Doc himself was clearly a big fan, having now designed his own map for it.

The 2v2 Gunfight mode features its own selection of maps.

Although no longer in the development industry, instead focusing on his massively popular Twitch channel, Dr Disrespect, real name Guy Beahm, previously worked on CoD map design for 2014's Advanced Warfare.

Putting his experience on show, he used the level design tools available for Black Ops III to create his 2v2 design, before showing it off on Twitter.

His timing isn't random, though, as he's joining in the with the trending 'Blocktober' event, where level designers show off their early 'block' versions of maps, to show how the final product might then come together.

Doc went a step further though, not only showing images of his modern looking design, but also doing a complete walkthrough.

Of course, Black Ops III features advanced movement (wallrunning and jetpacks), but this map was made with Modern Warfare in mind, so the Twitch star kept his feet planted on the ground.

Infinity Ward developers have also been getting in on the 'Blocktober' trend, showing off some of their early designs for actual Modern Warfare maps.

Multiplayer designer Brian Baker revealed what the map 'Gun Runner' looks like, before all the textures and environment was added.

Although Dr Disrespect has since moved on from his career as a map designer, he clearly still has a passion for it, one that he can now enjoy more casually, since becoming a full-time streamer.

Who knows, though, perhaps Infinity Ward will want to expand the Gunfight map pool with a design from the Doc himself, which would undoubtedly excite fans.
