The original Dust 2 map is the successor to the very popular Dust map. The map is considered a classic so almost every player from veteran to noob will be familiar with it, or at least they should be.

Originally meant for Wingman (2v2), this version of the Dust 2 map is also one of the best CS2 1v1 maps.

This map is very easy for players to jump into as they’ll most likely recognize key areas of the map. Of course, the 1v1 version is much smaller, but it also has certain modifications that make it perfect for aggressive play styles and fast action.

Overall, this is a good, well-balanced map that you can play 1v1 over and over again and always find new ways to play.

aim_map_pro map in CS2

This is an extremely popular 1v1 map and it’s also one you often see used by professional players or streamers when looking for some fun 1v1 action.

The main reason top players love this map is that you have to be fast and have a perfect aim to win consistently. It’s very fast-paced and there is not much room to set up your strategy. This means you need to react instantly to what unfolds and the best player is the one left standing.

Check out this classic if you need to work on your reaction time or aim.

Aim_AllPistols_2077 map in CS2

If you are looking for 1v1 action and pistol only, then this is the best map you’ll find. Of course, you can probably guess from the name this map spawns with all pistols available.

The “2077” is a nod to cyberpunk themes as the map itself has a colorful neon look that can be described as either cyberpunk or, maybe more accurately, synthwave. Either way, it’s another colorful map if you’re looking to get away from the usual earth tones and grays in traditional maps. If you love neon skins in Counter-Strike as much as we do, then you must check out the best of them.

This map also allows you to change weapons by shooting at photos on the various walls which adds another nice playstyle element to the experience.

Speaking of weapons, if you need a knife, read our guide explaining how to get a knife in CS2.

awp_india_winter map in CS2

We’ve included this map in the list for two reasons. Firstly, it’s more of a medium-sized map when it comes to 1v1, which makes it unique and a great alternative for those looking for something more tactical. Next, it has snow and sometimes it’s just cool to play a snow map.

The mostly white color palette makes it very easy to spot players at a distance, so be careful with your peeking on this map as you’ll be easy to see even from far away.
