Brawl Stars is popular for its action-packed 3v3 modes, but if you want to test your skills against just one player and in-game friends, here’s how to 1v1 in the game.

Brawl Stars is as competitive as it gets and a 1v1 is one of the best ways to test your mettle and practice before facing the real competition in 3v3 multiplayer ranked modes. The 1v1 setting is also great for toning down gameplay’s intensity and just trying out fun mechanics with your favorite Brawlers.

On that note, here’s everything to know about playing 1v1 matches in Brawl Stars.

Best 1v1 Brawlers in Brawl Stars

If you want to dominate your opponents during 1v1 in Brawl Stars, we recommend using the following BrawlerS:

  • Mortis – Mortis has a high skill ceiling and you easily defeat low-health opponents with him. He also offers great mobility, allowing him to reach the desired locations quickly and get out of danger with ease.
  • Frank – Frank can quickly charge his Ultimate, which is usually a game changer in the Solo Showdown mode. His high HP is also suitable for a mode where no one else will tank damage for you.
  • Doug – Doug’s high health and damage output makes him desirable for a Solo Showdown. His Second Serving attack can pass through walls, giving him a chance to respawn with one additional ammo.
  • Griff – Griff might have average health, but his high damage output certainly compensates for it. He attacks in massive areas and your opponents won’t be able to survive by maintaining distance.
  • Ash – Ash is one of the best picks for a 1v1 Brawl if you want to keep the battle in close range. He is quick, boasts high HP and the Rage bar is the primary mechanic of his kit. All his attacks, like shockwaves and robotic cats, are a nightmare to deal with for single opponents. Because the Rage bar isn’t displayed to others, Ash is also a mysterious Brawler to get into a 1v1 with.
  • Darryl – Darryl has inconsistent damage output, but you won’t need a lot of hits to take out anyone with. Especially at close range, his shotgun shells are more than enough to hand you the victory.
  • Leon – Leon’s invisibility is truly overpowered in a 1v1 battle based on modes like Timed Detonation. The high damage output makes the gameplay aggressive and you won’t have to worry a lot about survivability as well.
