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.

CoD streamer stunned after winning Warzone match despite dying

Popular Twitch streamer its_iron was stunned after he managed to pick up an extremely lucky win during his Warzone broadcast, despite dying in the final 1v1 duel for the victory.

Picking up wins in Call of Duty’s battle royale, Warzone, can prove to be quite challenging for even the best of players, as you have to outlast 150 players in a single match to come out on top.

However, one Warzone streamer its_iron managed to pick up a bizarre victory, even surprising himself after somehow winning the battle royale match when he had been downed by his final opponent.

During his November 27 Warzone broadcast, Its_iron had attempted to run the final player over with his cargo truck, but they had managed to explode the vehicle just in time with an airstrike killstreak, downing the streamer’s character in the process.

With the opponent running towards him to confirm the kill, the streamer had already admitted defeat and began praising the player for his clever tactic to counter his idea. “What a play, good stuff,” he admitted, thinking he had lost the Warzone match, “I can’t even be upset that at that one, heck of a play.”

However, as the Twitch streamer had picked up a self-revive Kit earlier in the game, the game did not end when he went down, and he was shocked to realize that he had actually won the game when he looked back at his screen.

“I never even saw him call in the [airstrike] either” he added, before reading his chat and discovering he picked up the win, “I won? No…he killed himself with the airstrike?”

Despite securing the win, the streamer revealed he did not feel as if he had earned it, adding that the other player had deserved it instead. “I feel bad, that’s unfortunate. I don’t feel like I won that,” he said.

While the airstrike initially worked well against the streamer, his final opponent was likely unaware of the second bombing run and eager to secure the kill before its_iron could use his self-revive to get back in the fight.
