How to 1v1 with Friends in Mordhau

The only way to play a 1v1 duel with friends in Mordhau is to search for an empty Duels server and then invite them to join. It’s a hassle, but if you do manage to pull it off, then you can effectively close the server down by constantly refusing other people’s requests to join in. And for the most part, players will leave you alone if they see you’re not interested, toxic though the base can be sometimes. A few will almost definitely hang around for a bit to spectate, which is a great opportunity to put on a show. The only other way is to make a Duels server of your own and then protect it with a password. That’s the closest Mordhau can come to a private server.

So, that’s how you can fight a 1v1 duel with friends in Mordhau as far as we know. If you have other advice on the subject, let us know in the comments. The lack of private servers in this game causes this kind of trouble sometimes, but as you can see, there are ways around it. Hardly ideal, I agree, but it’s not the worst thing in the world. The player base is at least decent enough to leave people who clearly just want to fight each other well alone. There are tons and tons of other Duels servers they can go to instead. The sheer number of servers also means it should be a relatively easy to find an empty one to set up the fight in.
