D.Va is a Ranged Warrior Hero from the Overwatch universe. Hana Song, also known as "D.Va", is both a world champion professional gamer and a burgeoning global icon. As a member of South Korea's elite MEKA unit, she fights to protect her homeland from the colossal omnic threat lurking within the East China Sea.

Background Edit

As the omnic continued to adapt, it eventually disrupted MEKA's drone-control networks, forcing the military to place pilots in the mechs. Scrambling to find suitable candidates, the government turned to the country's professional gamers, who possessed the necessary reflexes and instincts to operate the mechs' advanced weapons systems. Top stars were drafted, including reigning world champion Hana Song, also known as "D.Va." Famous for her elite skills, D.Va was a fierce competitor who played to win at all costs, and she had a well-earned reputation for showing no mercy to her opponents.

Gameplay Summary Edit

Strengths Edit

  • D.Va's strength lies in the ability to disrupt the enemy team and to split them up with Boosters.
  • Capitalising on Defence Matrix is key as she can reduce a push in half with that ability.

Talent Builds Edit

Tips Edit

Matchups Edit

Pairings Edit

ETCplate
E.T.C. provides plenty of disabling effects that D.Va lacks, so together they form a potent team that can both peel and jump onto an enemy with Boosters and Power Slide. If E.T.C. uses Mosh Pit, D.Va can drop a Self-Destructing Mech in the middle of the party for some spectacular results.


Lúcioplate
D.Va’s reduced Move Speed is offset by Lúcio’s Speed Boost, allowing her to have even more uptime on her Basic Attacks. D.Va is also incredibly resilient, allowing Lucio’s Healing Boost to get maximum value on her multiple Health pools.


Sgt. Hammerplate
D.Va is great at disrupting enemy engages due to her knockback, her Self-Destruct, and Defense Matrix. With D.Va providing protection, Sgt. Hammer can continue to shell away at the enemy team.


Effective against Edit

Effective foes Edit

Falstadplate
Falstad’s Flight provides his team with an advantage on larger maps; this can put D.Va’s team at a strategic disadvantage when the opponents can out-rotate her around the map. Falstad can also select Mighty Gust and push D.Va’s Self-Destructing Mech away from his team, greatly reducing its value.


Malfurionplate
Malfurion's Roots not only stop D.Va in her tracks during Boosters, but can also root D.Va in pilot form after she pops out, helping the opposing team secure the kill on her.


Muradinplate
The frequency of Muradin’s Stuns can interrupt Defense Matrix and Boosters, reducing D.Va’s ability to make an impact during team fights.
