Basic Info[edit | edit source]
Dossier[edit | edit source]
It was always hypothesized that a member of the Tardigrada phylum would be the last species on Earth in the event of a global apocalypse, so in some ways, the existence of Mopsechiniscus fluitobesus is completely expected. Its size and method of travel, however? Less so.
While a poor steed in battle, Mopsechiniscus is a fantastic beast of burden. The hairs on its back let a single rider steer it without a saddle, and it carries an incredible amount of cargo for its size. A small caravan of these could see us swimming in resources in no time.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
It acts Docile towards players and will attempt to scare away predators by puffing itself up.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
It looks similar in appearance to a plump caterpillar with a wide, bulbous body that is divided into four segments. It walks on six short, plump legs. Its head is small and features a beak, oval shaped eyes and two horn-like antennae with a small patch of fur between them. The front-most segment of its body is wrinkled around the head and appears to have a course patch of fur. Its back is dappled sparsely with what appear to be small, round armor plates. On its belly it appears to have a black and luminescent blue patch of wrinkly skin from which it ejects gas inhaled from the air.
Color Scheme and Regions
This section displays the Gasbags's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Gasbags. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Gasbags will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme. Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID.
Server admins can use this region information in the Console Command
"cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID>".
"cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6" would color the Gasbags's "back stripe" magenta.
Region 1 is not used
Region 3 is not used
Drops[edit | edit source]
Base Stats and Growth[edit | edit source]
Note that creatures will have different stats in Survival of the Fittest
|Attribute||Amount at Level 1||Increase per point||Taming Bonus|
1Percentages are based on the value of the stat the moment the creature was tamed (after taming effectiveness)
2The absolute Base Damage is shown here instead of the percentage.
3Wild creatures do not level up movement speed
4Torpidity increases every level on wild creatures, but can not be increased once they are tamed.
|Movement Type||Base Speed||Sprinting|
- These are the base speeds of the creature at 100% Movement Speed
- For a comparison of the speeds of all creatures, see Base Creature Speeds
|Attack Type||Projectile Values||Torpor Values|
|Impulse||Radius||Base||Mult||Duration||Damage Mult||Amount||Duration||Damage Mult||Amount|
Wild Stats Level-up
Type in values of a wild creature to see on which stats it's emphasized. Green values on a high-level creature are very good for breeding. If you have already tamed your creature you can try to recover the breeding-stats with an external tool.
The stat-calculator does not work in the mobile-view, see here for alternatives: Apps
Note that after the creature is tamed it gets bonuses on some stats depending on the taming effectiveness. This makes it hard to retrieve the levels on a tamed creature, so this tool is only for wild ones, but gives a first impression, how well the stats are distributed.
Combat[edit | edit source]
This section describes how to fight against the Gasbags.
General[edit | edit source]
Gasbags are typically docile creatures unless attacked, and will flee rather quickly by jetting away.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Any hunting strategy will do to bring down a Gasbag. Their only response will be to flee.
Weaponry[edit | edit source]
Dangers[edit | edit source]
Gasbag will sometimes bite the player with very low damage. Although, their only danger is, should they puff up and jet you with their gas, you may land next to more dangerous creatures. Be aware of your surroundings at all times.

Note that the values are for optimal cases, always bring extra supplies!
For a level-dependent count of resources needed, try an external taming calculator.
Preferred Food[edit | edit source]
While mejoberries are effective, they will tame faster with advanced crops.
KO Strategy[edit | edit source]
There are several ways of knocking out Gasbags.
- Luring it into an enclosed trap made of mostly ceilings and doorframes. This may either require Rare Flower, or Giant Honey.
- Throwing a bola at it and firing tranquilizing shots.
It is worth noting that Gasbags are more prone to being knocked out while they are not inflated. There are several ways of deflating Gasbags while its inhaling air.
- Freezing it with either Snow Owl, Managarmr or Ice Titan (Titans will most definitely kill it however)
- Shooting a projectile at its face.
Should it be successful at deflating the air, it will immediately jump up in shock rather than blasting its stored air upwards.
Utility[edit | edit source]
Roles[edit | edit source]
Pack Mule - The Gasbags will be used to transport materials in the field and back to base. An example would be if you are collecting Metal and you have no tames but your Gasbags, in which case you could load it up and take it around whilst farming Metal as it seems it will be able to carry a substantial amount. You may wish to level oxygen as this increases the total gas it can hold, increasing flight time.
Glider - Holding "Right-Click" / "RMB" will make the Gasbags suck in air. After this, pressing "C" will release the air in front of the Gasbags, blowing away any small creatures in front of it. If you instead press the "Spacebar", it will release a burst of the air collected downwards, propelling the Gasbags into the air. Once in the air, the Gasbags can be controlled as it glides to the ground via the movement keys. If you let the Gasbags float without pressing any movement keys and just use them to make small adjustments, you can travel further and it will make you use less air which is used to float down safley. The amount of air you take in when inhaling on the ground determines how high and far the Gasbags will travel while airborne. Gasbags does not take fall damage if you have enough air left to absorb the landing. When it does take fall damage, it is capped at 40% of its max health.
