Doom Construction Kit (abbreviated as DCK) is a sector-based DOS level editor and WAD editor created by Ben Morris (Warbaby) and Zerius Development. It is similar to Doom Editing Utilities (DEU) in many respects; for example, DCK is mode-based.

Versions of DCK before v2.2f were free to download; versions after this must be bought to be used. However, older versions can still be downloaded and have the same features as later versions.
