She has high damage output at close-range, making her a strong fighter in 1-on-1 match. Her Defense Matrix is useful against all incoming-projectiles, protecting her teammates from enemy fire. She is a dangerous ganker in tank class, dealing consistent damage to the enemy. Self-Destruct will wipe all opponents within the blast area. Be that as it may, she doesn`t have an extended barrier to properly protect her team like Reinhardt. She is also slow while firing, allowing the enemy to outrun her to disengage or move around her to distract her aiming.

- Boosters D.Va “I play to win.” Real Name Hana Song (송하나) Age 19 Nationality Korean Occupation Competitive StarCraft player (formerly)Mech PilotActress Base Busan, South Korea Affiliation Mobile Exo-Force Voice Charlet Chung 1] (English) Genevieve Doang (French)Julia : D.Va`s mech will launch into the air once activated.

- The mech will receive any momentum from the Boosters if used prior to activating Self-Destruct.

- Defense Matrix is especially strong against most damage dealers. It can even negate a dangerous bullet from McCree`s Deadeye or even Pharah`s Barrage.
- You can close a gap to most heroes with Boosters, but you will receive fires while using it to hunt them. Defense Matrix can be used during Boosters, so activate it while flying onto the target.
- You need to prioritize protecting the team from flankers and snipers, potentially by rushing them down at close range. Snipers are your first target since they are vulnerable at close-range followed by other damage dealers depend on the situation and their position.
- It is not recommended to play D.Va as the sole tank on your team. Solo-tanking with her is extremely difficult. She can`t solo an entire enemy team by herself like McCree or Genji, and she can`t provide extended cover like Reinhardt, but she can do one right after another in short, well-timed bursts.
- Strategize where and when to place a Self-Destructing Mech. The 3 seconds countdown of Self-Destruct is long enough for the enemies to find a cover or get behind a friendly Barrier. Another effective tool is use Boosters before Self-Destruct to send the Ultimate out from a blind spot on a place where there is less cover to provide.
- If you melee attack an enemy player while D.Va`s Boosters are active, you will deal greatly increased knockback to the target allowing easy environmental kills.
- Even though Defense Matrix will destroy all projectiles, it will not absorb beams such as Zarya`s Particle Cannon, Mei`s Endothermic Blaster, Symmetra`s Photon Projector and Sentry turret fire, along with Winston`s Tesla Cannon.
- D.Va has a large critbox in front of her mech (the cockpit). You will receive critical shot easier than most heroes, so avoid turning your mech to face the enemy`s fires without Defense Matrix active.
- If you activate D.Va`s Boosters ability and move onto an enemy player, you will deal damage in addition to knocking them back. If an opponent is low in health, this can be a faster way to kill them than firing her cannons, but it carries the risk of removing her only means of escaping danger.
- When out of the suit, D.Va`s primary goal is to score as many headshots as possible, as fast as possible, to call her next mech. You may want to target a distant Roadhog to regain your ultimate charge.
