D.Va has always been a popular Tank hero in Overwatch. Everything from her abilities to her aesthetics has made her a frequent addition to any match. With the launch of the Overwatch 2 PvP Beta, a number of heroes have been given some overhauls and reworks.

While plenty of changes and additions will be coming to Overwatch 2, as detailed in the first set of patch notes for the beta, players are keen to find out just how their favorite heroes will be adjusted.

D.Va Overwatch 2 Rework Detailed

Some Overwatch fans might have mixed feelings over the extent of D.Va's rework. Unlike some of the other tanks, like Doomfist, D.Va isn't getting much in terms of an overhaul:

  • Base Health increased from 300 to 450
  • Base Armor reduced from 300 to 200

Fusion Cannons

  • Primary Fire movement penalty reduced from 50% to 40%
  • Weapon spread reduced from 4 to 3.5

As you can see, D.Va's main changes come in the form of adjustments to her base health and base armor, having been increased and reduced respectively. As for her Fusion Cannons, players might find that they've become a bit more streamlined, having weapon spread reduced as well as the movement penalty.

Of course, D.Va isn't the only hero who's been given a rework for Overwatch 2. The likes of Orisa, Doomfist, and more have received some significant changes.
