D.va is the codename of Hana Song, an ex-professional gamer from Korea who uses her skill to pilot a state-of-the-art Mech. Enlisted in the South Korean army, she fights to defend her homeland from the Omnics in her Mech.
D.Va is strongest in her Mech suit. Her primary weapons are Fusion Cannons which work like automatic shotguns with infinite ammo dealing high damage at close range. She also has a Defense matrix to eat up incoming projectiles, Boosters that allow her to fly for a short duration of time, and Micro Missiles which deal high burst damage. Her ultimate is self-destructing her mech dealing huge damage. When she’s out of her Mech, she is very vulnerable with low HP and a small pistol.
D.Va is an agile Main tank with a low skill floor and very high skill ceiling. She is easy to start playing and is a popular choice among the female players of overwatch. She can dive into the enemy, challenge high ground, peel for her teammates and harass enemies.
Due to her popularity among casuals and pros alike, she has received a lot of cosmetic items from Blizzard and has a plethora of regular skins along with Seasonal event skins she can choose from. These skins can be earned by opening loot boxes, purchased from the in-game store, and completing challenges.

Best D.va skin with the Golden Gun
Golden guns look good on a lot of heroes but they stand out a lot on D.va. Since she rides in a mech with huge guns, the golden weapons look very good on her.
Since the mech already has some gold accents, the golden guns fit right into the color scheme. Her pistol probably looks the best because it turns solid gold.

It has been quite a while since D.va last got a skin. Her latest skin was Shin-Ryeong which is a Legendary tier skin and was released as a part of Halloween Terror at the end of 2020. It has been 5 events since then and D.va has not received a single skin and did not in this year’s Halloween Terror either. This also means that the next event, Winter Wonderland most likely will have a skin releasing for D.va.
