In order to 1v1 in Apex Legends, players must use the Firing Range. This is not only the easiest way to do it, but also there are no private lobbies available for console.

The Firing range allows players to pick whatever loadout and Legend they want. It also means that you will respawn upon death, so you don’t have to wait around.

  1. Invite whoever you wish to 1v1 into your lobby
  2. Select Firing Range in the game mode options and start it up
  3. Once in the Firing Range, select your Legend and loadout
  4. Decide on an area to fight on, most people use the open space behind the dummies
  5. When you are both ready and in poisiton, simply go to the options menu and select “Toggle Friendly Fire”
  6. This will allow you to damage eachother, good luck!

As you can select whatever weapons and items to use, you’ll want to set up some rules. For example submachine guns only, purple armor only, no healing items, or maybe even melee only.

This is great for players who are trying to get better with certain weapons and playstyles. You can also set a 1v1 up for someone who may be question your skill, allowing you to settle the issue.
