A Call of Duty player discovered an Easter egg in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 over the weekend that directly referenced popular video game stream Dr. Disrespect, who worked on the design for the 2011 title.
Prior to launching his immensely successful streaming career, Guy “Dr Disrespect” Beahm worked as a level designer for Sledgehammer Games on the titles Modern Warfare 3 and Advanced Warfare, as well as a small portion of World War 2.
On Friday, the owner of the Modern Warzone account on Twitter discovered an Easter egg on the level “Scorched Earch” that referenced the Dr Disrespect logo and character.
“No April Fools BS, tonight I discovered at least three Modern Warfare 3 Easter eggs that I’ve never seen posted anywhere on the internet,” the account stated. “The craziest one is a @DrDisrespect Easter egg in the campaign that I’ve never seen. May have uncovered some 2011 history.”
A video posted by the account showed a bookstore in the “Scorched Earth” level that featured a display of a book featuring the Dr Disrespect logo and the name “Guy Beahm.”

“This isn’t an April Fools day joke. I basically found an entire ‘dev room’ in the mission Scorched Earth,” Modern Warzone noted. “None of these books are on any other area of the game. Sorry for saying ‘no shot’ so many times I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing and that it had never been found b4.”

Dr Disrespect is currently working with the Midnight Society video game studio that he co-founded last year to develop a new project codenamed “Project Moon,” which will reportedly incorporate NFTs into the cosmetic design philosophy.

The streamer was banned from left-wing Amazon-owned streaming platform Twitch in November with no reason given by the streaming platform, and he currently streams on video hosting platform YouTube.
