The Gasbags is one of the creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved and a native to the Extinction, Genesis: Part 1, and Genesis: Part 2 maps.

Basic Info

Dossier

This section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena Walker, the author of the dossiers, has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creature.

Temperament

Passive

Wild

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.

Mopsechiniscus is slow and ineffective in a fight, so to survive, it tends to choose flight - literally. First, it inflates itself like a balloon, briefly slowing down and gaining durability. Then it launches itself into the air by expelling gas through a series of sphincters in its underbelly, which it also uses to slow its descent.

Yes, it's as...unusual as it sounds, but Mopsechiniscus makes the most of its inflatable nature. In addition to jumping, it can use its stored up gases to push back aggressors, or even float on water.

Domesticated

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

It acts Docile towards players and creatures unless it is attacked, as it may bite (though its attack is incredibly weak), blast gas, or take flight. It will attempt to scare away predators by puffing itself up but if this doesn't work it will try and flee by floating away. Gasbags naturally make sure they are inflated at all times in anticipation of a threat.

Appearance

It looks similar in appearance to a massive plump caterpillar/cow hybrid or tardigrade with a wide, bulbous body that is divided into four segments. It walks on six short, plump legs. Its head is sunken into the body and is small and features a beak, with two 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 coarse patch of fur. Its back is dappled sparsely with what appear to be small, round armor plates or gas chambers. Its belly is augmented with a porous element membrane, from which it ejects gas previously inhaled from the air. When it puffs itself up, all its segmented regions swell up to a size around two times larger, while the head remains the same size.

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.

This information can be used to alter the Gasbags's regions by entering cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID> in the cheat console. For instance, cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6 would color the Gasbags's "back stripe" magenta.

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.[1]

Gasbags

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.


Abilities

Active

Bite
LeftRTR2ZR
  • The Gasbags bites the target for 5 damage.
  • Can be used every 0.67s by both a rider and the AI.

Inhale
RightLTL2ZL
  • The Gasbags inhales air.
  • This action progressively fills its Inflation.png Inflation Meter and stops when it is full.
  • Can be used every 0.67s by both a rider and the AI.

Expel Air
  • The Gasbags expels the aacumulated air in front of it if it is on the ground or to the sides if it is floating.
  • This action pushes the targets backwards and applies  Gassed effect to the affected targets, negating its next fall damage.

Vertical Boost
  • The Gasbags use some acumulated air to evelate itself.
  • Whenever the Gasbags wants to move with the directional controls while it is floating, it will lose some air.

Passive

Inflation

The Gasbags rider has a Inflation.png Inflation Meter on the left of his hotbar that indicates how much air the Gasbags acumulates with the Inhale action, this air allows the Gasbags to float and move while in the air. Its air capacity scales with its  Oxygen stat.

Additionally, the air percent that the Gasbags has acumulated reduces the incoming damage that the Gasbags receive up to 80%. However, every hit that the Gasbags receive reduces the reserve of air that it has.

Passenger Seat

The Gasbags does not need a saddle to ride it, however, if it is equiped with a  Gasbags Saddle it can now carry a passenger.

Combat

This section describes how to fight against the Gasbags.

General

Gasbags are typically docile creatures unless attacked, and will flee rather quickly by jetting away. They may also blast gas out of its Tek meshing on its belly to blow away aggressors.

Strategy

Any hunting strategy will do to bring down a Gasbags, given enough time and patience. Their only valid response will be to flee, and because they blast away quite far and quickly, it can be hard to catch up lest the survivor or a tame is fast enough. However, when fully puffed with air, they take 80% less  Damage, so it is important to not allow this. They will slowly lose air when being hit, but a simple way is to shoot them in the head while they are puffing up, which causes them to deflate, preventing escape, and usually ensuring a kill.

Weaponry

Since a Gasbags will try to flee from an attacking player, ranged weapons such as the  Crossbow and the  Longneck Rifle, or swift tamed creatures such as an  Enforcer are advised.

Dangers

Gasbags 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 or fall down a ditch. Be aware of your surroundings at all times.

Weakness

When frozen they lose all damage reduction. As mentioned before, shooting them in the head while they are puffing up also causes them to deflate and lose their damage reduction.

KO Strategy

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 Bee Honey.

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, the Gasbags will immediately jump up in shock rather than blasting its stored air upwards.

Utility

Roles

  • Encumbrance Helper: The most unique Gasbags "feature" (whether intended or not) is its titanic inventory weight being completely ignored when carried by a flyer. Note that it can only be carried by the largest flyers :  Wyverns,  Quetzal and  Rhyniognatha. If your flyer is encumbered, releasing a Gasbags from a  Cryopod and unloading your inventories into the Gasbags' would allow you to carry on. This is very useful for farming runs or when you wish to move your base to a new location. Level up  Weight only.
  • 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 can carry a obscene amounts of resources, easily surpassing the  Quetzal's weight capacity by a large amount as a base number. There are three stats to consider leveling on a Gasbags based on your needs. Some  Oxygen is essential to allow the Gasbags to fly for much longer periods of time without potential landings in hostile territory.  Movement Speed actually increases the flight speed of the Gasbags which will allow it to fly faster. In unison with leveling oxygen, this can allow the Gasbags to reach crazy lengths of flight. Leveling  Weight sounds appealing but should only be done as an added luxury; the weight increase per level is fairly small and often times the amount of weight already present is sufficient. If you're in a hostile environment and are subject to being harassed on the move, consider some  Health as well.
    • Note: The Gasbags will not take fall damage from falling unless it is very low or empty on gas. The Gasbags can always be dismounted before hitting the ground to negate the fall damage. In the event that dismounting is impossible, the most damage that the Gasbags can take from fall damage is about 40% of its max health.
  • Tank: When bloated with air, the Gasbags takes 80% less  Damage making it useful for tanking  Bosses, taming,  Turrets, and raids. All one has to do is fill up the gas capacity to 100% and try to maintain that full inflation so the reduction in damage is applied. Against ranged weapons and projectiles, do not let the head get shot as this will cause the Gasbags to deflate, making it quite vulnerable. The Gasbags is also one of the best turret soakers in the game. When soaking turrets, make sure to have the creature with its back side faced towards them, as this will prevent the Gasbag's head from getting shot as well as the survivor mounting it. The Gasbags can also be equipped with the  Gasbags Saddle to further increase the damage reduction. On top of all of this, if a situation becomes hairy, one can easily flee quickly in contrast to almost every other tanking creature out there. Depending on the specific job, one can optimize the leveling to their needs. Generally though, pumping  Health and  Oxygen is needed to increase its tanking capabilities and  Stamina is needed for helping the Gasbags tank for longer as it constantly breaths in air.  Movement Speed can also be valuable to allow quicker walking and flying.
  • Troll: Surprisingly, the Gasbags makes for a hilarious troll thanks to its tertiary, gas blast attack. Though this does no  Damage, it does incredible knockback to survivors and creatures, sending them a significant distance. If one does get blasted, they will be granted the Gassed effect which makes a player gassed by a Gasbags immune to fall damage until he/she touches the ground. Though this means that you can't kill unfortunate victims with fall damage, one can still use the gas blast attack to harass at large. One can even troll practically by knocking back survivors and tames down ditches where they can't easily get out, into a dangerous area full of dangerous creatures, wild or tamed, or just for the heck of enraging other players.
  • Travel / Scout: As stated with the role of 'Aberration Bus', the Gasbags is a great mount to use on any map in order to get around, as it can float and blast gas to fly to avoid most threats and travel comfortable over immense distances, so long as it has sufficient oxygen. The Gasbags can also be a viable scout, as it can be tamed and used without a saddle very early in the game and has good mobility in the air. This allows a survivor to quickly get to any area and leave if need be. It is also important to note that the Gasbags can also carry an one extra rider if its saddle is equipped, making . Level  Oxygen,  Movement Speed, and  Stamina and  Health if need be.
  • Pet: Despite being a very large creature, Gasbags could be considered a very good pet to have do to their cute appearance, and the adorable sounds they make.
  • Aberration Bus: This animal can be transferred to the Aberration map. In combination with a  Cryopod, it makes it easy to search for drops and leave the map. In addition, in the presence of a large amount of oxygen, you can fully navigate the map, carrying a huge amount of resources, and even carry an extra passenger with you. Moreover, in some cases Gasbags is even better than a  Rock Drake for navigation and getting from one place to another. Gasbags can rise vertically upwards.  Managarmr is also able to climb high - but it does not curl in the air, and cannot correct its flight, plus it uses tons of stamina. For improvement - only  Oxygen (for comfort flying - 11000-13000 oxygen). Keep in mind that
    • With all that said, the Gasbags remains infinitely inferior to the native  Rock Drake in terms of maneuverability, speed and strength. Besides the Gasbags do suffer from  Radiation poisoning and they are unlikely to survive to the extreme difficulty of the Surface.

Notes/Trivia

For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Gasbags, see the relevant Wikipedia article.

  • The species name for the Gasbags, fluitobesus, roughly translates to "fat floater". The genus name, Mopsechiniscus, is a real world genus name that contains six south hemispheric species, with the species, Mopsechiniscus franciscae, which is also an Antarctic species, being the most studied one.
  • Killing a Gasbags will grant one  Gasbags bladder.
  • Real Tardigrades are rather small, crossing the lines between microscopic and macroscopic, and ranging from 0.1 mm to 1.5 mm in length. This makes it rather strange as to how the Gasbags got so large, though clues given range from the wildly different characteristics of the Gasbags like a gas bladder and hair, to the  Element that has integrated itself into the creature's belly.
  • When inflated and in water, the Gasbags will want to rise to the surface and float, similarly to the  Reaper though to not such an extreme degree, as it can still swim deeper. However, if the Gasbags is fully deflated, it will sink.
  • Despite being listed as an omnivore in its dossier, the Gasbags does not consume meat.
  • A Gasbags equipped with a  Gasbags Saddle can hold two players; one can ride on the front of the back while one other player can sit in the saddle seat farther down the back.
  • The "Gassed" status effect granted by a Gasbags will provide immunity to fall damage.
  • Perhaps having the most  Weight of any creature in the entire game, the Gasbags makes the ultimate carvaner and pack mule.
  • The Gasbags, like the  Phiomia can harvest nothing but trees, albeit very poorly.
  • The Gasbags cannot sprint, however it can still travel at high speeds due to its flying capabilities.
  • When leveling up, the Gasbags will do a quick side-spin midair.
