Twilight Warrior is a tactical military Doom II total conversion created by Black Shadow Software that requires source port Doom Legacy. The initial November 15, 1998 release hosted on Doomworld was followed by a v1.01 upgrade on December 20, 1998.
The WAD places the protagonist in a secret military unit called Global Counter-Terrorist Operations (GCTO). As a "Twilight Warrior" the player is a Special Forces soldier without rank or identity. The WAD includes a file briefing.txt that contains a mission briefing for each of the 10 new levels. Missions include base infiltration/clearance, hostage rescues, and an ordered assassination.
Levels for the WAD were made by:
Sprites for the WAD were made by:
- Stephen Browning (Scuba Steve)
- Ziggy Gnarly
DeHackEd for the WAD was made by:
- Sidearm Joe
All levels by Sidearm Joe unless otherwise noted.

Five of the new enemies are edits of Doom's zombieman sprites to make human foes. The grunts and commando have medium-to-high damage hitscan attacks that force players to turn corners and enter rooms deliberately.
- Guard dog (from Wolfenstein 3D)
- Jungle grunt
- Desert grunt
- Bazooka guy
- Special forces commando
- Helicopter gunship (graphic and sounds from All Hell is Breaking Loose)
- Assassination target
MAP03, MAP05, MAP07, and MAP09 contain friendly hostages that must be rescued from capture. By using DeHackEd's Icon of Sin BrainDie codepointer, if any hostage dies in crossfire the level immediately ends and the next level will begin. A similar effect appeared in Sidearm Joe's Hostage Rescue 3 WAD released in January 1998.
The onscreen display of the new weapons are angled, similar to Duke Nukem 3D.
- Commando knife
- Browning 9mm pistol
- OICW (Objective Individual Combat Weapon) rifle
- OICW grenade launcher
- H&K MP5 submachine gun
- Hand grenades / flashbangs
