D.Va, Reinhardt, and Roadhog in Overwatch are part of the Tank Heroes. Tank Heros tend to move with an offensive line to protect their allies and soaking all the damage. Those who didn’t get the chance to play the open beta and get familiar with the characters here is a chance to know your character and this guide will show you tips on how each Hero works with attacks, defense, and his Abilities.
How to Play as D.Va
D.Va is one of a unique Tank hero you will come across and if you are looking for a hero with surprise then this Hero is perfect for you. D.Va works with her most powerful mechanical suit in order to play more offensive and destroy everything that is harm for her teammates.
While in Mech, her main weapon is the Fusion Cannons which has infinite ammo without any reload, but there is a drawback that it will slow her down with her move movements. Try to use the Cannons for Mid-range enemies as they are more effective and you can quickly switch your style.
As the term says this ability will help D.Va to boost her powers for 2 seconds and this can help her to engage in a fight or escape if needed quickly. Use this power wisely to get the best out of it.
This ability will help D.Va to absorb all the incoming damage which can be normal attacks or the Ultimate once.
If you decide to jump off the Mech then try using the Mech’s Ultimate Ability to self-destruct which will explode like the largest bomb in the game. You will have 4 seconds to escape the Marked radius so use the Booster to escape. if you are lucky then it might take the entire enemy team down.
While not using Mech, D.Va will have a light gun to attack and defend her teammates. This will also recharge the call your Mech back into the battle.
The Ultimate Ability with our Mech, D.Va generates a huge amount of energy through the use of Light Gun. When the energy is recharged then you can call her Mech again in the battle which will deal with all the melee attacks and take down all the enemies.

This ability is used to absorb substantial damage before it is destroyed. Though Reinhardt can protect himself and his companions behind the barrier, he cannot attack while sustaining it.
