D.Va is one of the most popular Tank-type Heroes in Overwatch 2 who has proven to be better than many other characters. That even Blizzard had to go out of their way to nerf her with the Overwatch 2 November 15th update. Even after that, you can use D. Va to get high kills while helping your team hold positions, create openings, and other things to win the match eventually. To help you with your efforts, we are here with our D.Va Overwatch 2 Hero guide, talking about her Abilities, how to unlock her, and much more.

Here is D. Va’s complete kit sharing details on her abilities, weapons, ultimate, and passives: 

Weapons and Ultimates

D. Va uses different weapons and has different Ultimates depending on whether she is inside her mech or on foot with her trusty automatic pistols. 


  • Fusion Canons: Automatic short-range spread weapons. 
  • Light Gun: Automatic weapon. 


  • Self Destruct: Eject and overload your mech, causing it to explode after some time.
  • Call Mech: Calls down a new mech. 


  • Boosters: Fly in the direction you are facing. 
  • Defense Matrix: Block Projectiles in an area in front of you. 
  • Micro Missiles: Launch a volley of explosive rockets. 


  • Eject: Ejects you out of your mech when it’s destroyed. 
  • Role: Tank – Reduces knockbacks received. Less Ultimate is generated by healing and damage received.

D. Va is a Tank class Hero in Overwatch 2. When it comes to how to play her in matches, it totally depends on you whether you are serious about the game and queuing up in Role queues, Ranked matches, and such modes to provide excellent Tank support or a Casual player who wants some extra health and protect to mow down opponents and get high kills.

If you want to use D. Va as a Tank, make sure you have a healer nearby to constantly heal you while you take damage and get the enemy team’s attention. Your main goal should be to protect your team’s Healer and Damage class Heroes and hold a position or make an opening.

You can use the D. Va defense matrix to avoid incoming damage for some time while unleashing Micro-Missiles. When you get close, regular Fusion Cannons are more than enough. In short, your focus should be on defense and tanking through the enemy fire so others can do their roles.

But when you are playing D. Va causally, you can become your team’s top fragger by combining four things: Defense Matrix, Boosters, Micro Missiles and Fusion Cannons. Use the Boosters to close gaps with enemies; when you are close, use Fusion Cannon and the Defense Matrix simultaneously. And you have a clear shot; use the Micro Missiles.

When your Ultimate is ready, do not hastily waste it. Wait for the moment when more than two players are close to each other. And once you have the opportunity, close the gap using the Boosters and use the Ultimate. Doing so will eject you from your mech and give you some time to get away. While you must move out to ensure you don’t die from your own attack, we recommend using your Light Guns to keep enemies focused on you.

In a few seconds, the mech will create an AoE blast that will kill all nearby opponents. We have used it to get five kills-kill streak many times. All you have to do is make sure your enemy doesn’t figure out that you will be using your ultimate and not to use it early, as opponents will get time to run away.
