Recommended co-op WADs?

A friend and I want to do some two player co-op on Zandronum, but have gotten bored of playing the IWAD campaigns. What high quality mapsets would you recommend that play well in co-op?

STRAIN was designed with co-op in mind, though I've never tried it. Icarus is supposed to have co-op support too. And maybe MM/MM2...

I'm sure there are some more modern wads but I can't think of any off hand.

If you want to go through IWAD maps with a twist, you can always try the Brutalized maps. It's not exclusive to Brutal Doom either.

The Darkening 2 was pretty fun in multiplayer. Cool levels.

I had a lot of fun with vanguard - short episode, nonlinear, lots of fun.

scythe 2 is good, and vae victus 2 is good too

300 lines? Only played it in SP, but theoretically, it seems suitable - fast, byte-sized and accessible.

MM/MM2 are fine in co-op (I've never had issues in several runs through them), STRAIN and Icarus however have one or two 'one-way' moments that will close sections off behind players and leave them that way until further progress is made. Needless to say, if someone on the other side of the door dies before it's opened again, then GG reset map/restart server.
