If you’ve got a score to settle in Call of Duty, then a 1v1 showdown is the way to do it. If you fancy taking on an enemy in combat, then here’s how to set up 1v1 matches in CoD Mobile.

Call of Duty Mobile is the best way to play CoD on the go, allowing players to compete in both multiplayer and battle royale matches on their iPhones and Androids.

When Call of Duty Mobile first launched, the game had a built-in 1v1 playlist called Duel. Taking place on the Saloon map, players could jump in and take on random enemies in a showdown. Unfortunately, the mode has been removed, which means it’s harder to get into 1v1 matches on the game.

Thankfully, there are still ways to play 1v1 matches. Here’s everything you need to know about 1v1 matches on Call of Duty Mobile.
