5 of the Best CSGO Maps for 1V1 & Duels


GamingCSGO5 of the Best CSGO Maps for 1V1 & Duels

One of the best ways to practice in Counter Strike Global Offensive would be sitting in a 1V1 map with a friend. It’s perfect for letting you both get some practice in, as the maps mostly consist of peeking corners and getting head shots in. If you don’t have a friend to play with, just add a single bot!

All the maps below can be subscribed to on the Steam workshop. You can then find them in-game under the custom maps section.

The Aim_Pillars map is quite unknown, yet one of my favourites. It’s a mystery as to how I stumbled across this map, but it’s now my go to when having a 1v1 match with friends in Counter Strike: Global Offensive. Both sides of the map are identical, it’s a large arena with pillars spread out in a diagonal formation. This CSGO Map really shines when using the AWP.

Metro is another symmetrical CSGO 1V1 map. However it’s a bit more spread out compared to the others as it has rooms to the sides and back. With an open space in the centre, it’s perfect for either playing long range with snipers or closer range with rifles and pistols. Metro is another one of the more popular maps.

Aim 1vs1

The Aim 1vs1 map consists of a large open space with many crates dotted around the map. It’s perfect for practising body shots & head shots against friends. It’s a very popular map choice amongst the community, and also has ramps at the back to gain some height! There is also some large open space in the middle, no mans land.

The AWP_Lego_2_HD Map is one of the most popular lego themed maps, and is quite often seen in a lot of community servers for 1v1’s and Sniping matches. This map has an elevated platform, with a tower in the centre for using your AWP. There is also a ground level where players can get close range with rifles such as the AK & M4. Awp_Lego_2 is symmetrical too, with both sides being the exact same, and a ramp to practice head-shot peeks.

Finally, 1v1 Aim_Map is the most subscribed 1v1 styled map currently available on Steam, sitting at just over 350,000 Subscribers. It’s a lot smaller than some of the other maps on this list, making it a better choice for shorter ranged weapons such as rifles, heavy weapons and pistols. The map also features a lot of boxes and walls to provide cover and practice your peaking.
