Dota 2 is a beautiful game. From the incredible ultimate animations to the stellar hero sets, there’s something cool to see at every point in a game. That’s especially true for arcanas and personas, but almost any hero looks amazing with any set of cosmetics.

Those looking to redecorate their desktop with a fancy Dota 2 wallpaper have multiple ways to go about it. These are the two best ways to find your perfect Dota 2 wallpaper.

Dota 2 fan art wallpapers

Dota 2 has millions of fans. It’s no surprise that many of them are talented artists. There are tons of Dota 2 fan art backgrounds floating around on the internet, and a lot of it makes for very good wallpapers.

The best website for finding fan art Dota 2 wallpapers is Pinterest. The Dota 2 art tag has hundreds of posts by just as many artists. They vary from simple doodles to beautiful masterpieces. Hero art is particularly popular.

There is high-definition Dota 2 fan art for every hero that can then be used as a desktop. The majority of Dota 2 wallpapers on Pinterest are meant for mobile phones, but there are plenty of desktop options as well. The minimalist series by sheron1030 looks amazing and won’t drown out desktop icons.

Speaking of DeviantArt, that website is also a great place to find Dota 2 wallpapers. The most common tag for Dota 2 art is simply “dota.”

The best part about DeviantArt is that the images are posted directly by the artists. Artists that have posted cool Dota 2 fanart likely have a full portfolio to their name. DeviantArt also has a ton of Dota 2 cosplay, for those looking for something a bit different.

Official Dota 2 loading screen wallpapers

For something more official, there’s one more amazing source of Dota 2 wallpapers. That’s the actual Dota 2 client.

Many Dota 2 cosmetic sets come with loading screens dedicated to the set. These often depict the costumed hero squaring off with enemies or just a cool glamor shot. These images are sized to work as loading screens on most resolutions, so they work great as Dota 2-themed wallpapers.

The easiest way to find high-definition Dota 2 loading screens is to look through your own inventory and find a good one. Set it as the loading screen and demo a hero. Take a screenshot during the loading screen, and paste it into Paint, then save it.

For any background that isn’t owned, there are plenty of wiki-type sites that have the full collection available for download. If they don’t have it saved and organized, check the set’s Steam workshop page and download it from there.
