It’s a great way to practice using different weapons while keeping familiar surroundings. Dust 2 – Wingman even shares some common Dust 2 callouts, making it easier for newbies and veterans to play on the map.

Cascade (Prime) is one of the most beautiful CS:GO 1v1 maps you can play on. The attention to detail on this community-created map is just insane. It also features a ton of unique angles, different elevations, and creative corners that makes 1v1 encounters more exciting.

The map only features one site, which allows players to easily see each other without going around in circles. Even though there’s only one site, Cascade (Prime) still provides players with various routes they can use to attack or defend.

It’s one of the most fun CS:GO 1v1 maps you can play on because it also requires you to think of different strategies and can’t rely solely on your aim to win.

This next CS:GO 1v1 map is inspired by the classic AWP Lego workshop map with a neon twist. The amazing blend of darkness with neon colors brings the map to life. The starry sky also resembles the famous northern lights, resulting in a beautiful 1v1 CS:GO map.

The awp_lego_neon offers a spacious map with plenty of short and tall walls to use as cover. There’s also an elevated middle area that gives you an angle advantage. There are also plenty of bridges and off-angles that allow for a unique 1v1 experience.

It’s one of the best maps for 1v1 AWP battles, and I’m sure that even the best CS:GO players would appreciate playing on this map.

Next up, we have one of the coolest-looking CS:GO 1v1 maps on our list. The 1v1 Spaceship map by Maui is a spaceship-themed map that makes you feel like you are battling in outer space. Who would’ve thought that bringing guns in outer space would be so much fun?

Both sides start with rifles. There are plenty of close corners, open areas, covers, and even transparent/glass walls that make the game more exciting to play. I’ve noticed that the asteroids moving outside of the spaceship can be a bit distracting, but you get used to it after a while.

Imagine bringing your most expensive CS:GO skin and most prized possession in outer space just to kill an enemy. That’s going to be a lot of fun for sure.

Brewery is another unique concept map created by the community. It’s filled with barrels, machinery, containers, and everything else you’ll need to craft beer. It’s definitely a fun concept and makes for the perfect 1v1 session with a friend.

There’s only one site with multiple ways to enter from both sides. This makes it great for 1v1s without dragging the rounds out because you can’t see each other. Brewery also has this classic cobblestone aura to it, making veteran players feel right at home.

fy_poolparty is a ported version of the original map from CS 1.6. It was originally created by Squall but was improved and transferred over to CS:GO by le1t1337. This map will surely bring back nostalgic memories for OG players and create new memories for newbies.

It features a variety of creative angles, corners, and areas, making it perfect for strategic 1v1 scenarios. Like the others on our list, it only features one site. Although it is still very spacious and has an underground area.

All of the weapons are scattered on the ground, allowing you to easily pick one up at any moment. fy_poolparty creates various scenarios, from close fights to long-range battles.

Shred is the newest entry on our list of the best CS:GO 1v1 maps. It was created in January of 2023 and was made to resemble a local skatepark. It comes complete with ramps, ledges, and a souvenir booth, among other rad locations.

It’s a small and tight map with a single plant site located in the middle. Shred allows you to practice your aim and your strategic skills without letting each round feel like a boring and long match. All of the skateboards also break in half when you shoot at them, which is a very useless yet entertaining detail.

The de_snow_aim 1v1 [ AWP ] is a snow-themed map that’s basically a re-skin of his other 1v1 map called de_nuke. They look quite similar, so you might want to check that one out as well.

From the name itself, this is an AWP map. It’s actually unique compared to the other 1v1 AWP maps because this one has a lot of covers that you can use. This makes it harder to simply out-aim your opponents because of the lack of open space.

There’s also some elevation involved that can change the course of the game. You’ll have to be smart and always ready on this map because you’ll never know where your opponent will be coming from.

Next, we have another colorful neon-light-filled map with Aim_AllPistols_2077. From the name, you can probably guess that this is a great 1v1 CS:GO map to practice your pistol usage. All of the pistols are available from the start of the game. You can also change your weapon mid-round by simply shooting the photo on the wall.

The map features a ton of elevation and multiple boxes to use as cover. There are a total of six structures in the middle that can all be climbed. The map is also surrounded by an elevated border which you can use to your advantage.

There aren’t any plant sites on the map, and your sole goal is to eliminate the enemy. The two yellow middle buildings also have windows in them, allowing for creative angles.

The whole map is covered by Lego bricks. You and your opponent randomly spawn at opposite sides of the map, each having an AWP and a Desert Eagle in hand. The map has very few hiding spots and is composed of very wide areas, perfect for AWP battles.

There’s also a huge tower right in the middle. However, this usually isn’t an optimal hiding/AWPing spot. Depending on your elevation and position, there are quite a few blind spots, making the map more interesting to play in.

It’s a bright and colorful map that’s perfect if you want to practice your AWP skills. Just warn your enemy not to get tilted when you kill them over and over again.


1v1 Aim

1v1 Aim – Lou by Lou is a beautifully created map that features a dam, two houses, some trees, and a bridge. It’s a very simple 1v1 CS:GO map that allows you to just go straight to the point and start firing at your enemy.

One small detail about this map is that both players spawn inside of their houses. It doesn’t really affect gameplay that much, but it’s a fun little detail. If you’re playing on this map, get your best mouse for CS:GO ready because you’ll surely be doing a lot of flicking on this map.

Check it out here.

We have the oldest map on the list. Aim_Redline by Togib was created back in 2013 and is definitely ancient at this point. But, it stood its ground against father time and is still a pretty great map to play 1v1s on. Aim_Redline is a port of aim_redline from Counter-Strike: Source.

The layout is pretty simple. It has an open area in the middle, some elevation on the side, and a few boxes as cover from spawn. Other than that, all you have to do is aim and fire.

It’s known that sometimes the map doesn’t load weapons on the floor. To fix this, all you have to do is enter the command “mp_weapons_allow_map_placed 1.” Other than that bug, Aim_Redline is a solid 1v1 CS:GO map.”

The AWP_MIDDLE map is an AWP 1v1 CS:GO map that’s pretty much as simple as it gets. It spawns you in with nothing but an AWP in hand and lets your aiming and flicking powers do all the talking.

It’s reminiscent of older 1v1 AWP maps, so I’m sure FPS veterans would like the overall feel of the map. There’s only one elevated area in the middle that can be accessed by a ramp from both sides. There are also a few boxes scattered around the map. It’s best out of 16 rounds, and doesn’t have a plant site.


Aim Map | Gamma

The map is divided into colors. It has orange and blue colored walls with a gray-colored floor. From the spawn, you can choose one of five guns. The AWP, SSG 08, AK-47, M4A1-S, or the M4A4.

The map has a lot of great covers, different peeking angles, different areas to sneak into, and offers a lot of elevation. It’s one of the largest 1v1 maps on our list, and you can easily get lost in it if only it didn’t have a time limit.

It’s hard to predict where your opponent might peek and what their next move is going to be. This map is all about strategy as much as it is about pure aiming. It offers a ton of variability, flexibility, and is just overall an amazing 1v1 CS:GO map to play on.

The map allows you to use the M4A1-S, AK-47, M4A4, Deagle, and AWP.is a great choice if you’re looking for some old-fashioned 1v1s that involve a little bit more strategy and outplay potential.

Aim_Biove_Texture has an orange and gray color. It also features tons of different areas with elevation and cover. The middle part is full of walls of different shapes and sizes, allowing you to slowly get close to your enemy without taking damage.

Overall, it’s a very fun map to play 1v1s in. Additionally, it also has a separate HS (headshot) mode if you simply want to train your aim.


The Dust 2 – Wingman map is the best CS:GO 1v1 map on our list because of its familiarity factor and requires a great combination of strategy and aiming to win. However, all of these maps can help you improve your aim, decision-making, and planning.

Running 1v1s is also a great way to settle debates and arguments among your friends.
