If inflated it will take 400 % more darts/bullets hits ect. To knock it out / kill it so dododex is not wrong it's just because the gas bag is inflated. Also bring cryppded anky or magmasaur with pick or minding drill to collect a huge amount of metal! While rideing of course because it has a ton of weight.
They are believed to be part of the Tardigrada phylum, a group of extremophile microgranisims that can survive literally any environment, from extreme cold to extreme radiation, these guys are the hardiest of animals.
They have a damage resistance when inflated, so use a snow owl to freeze and deflate. After latest update, they can no longer be picked up or hit with bola. Heavily suggested to clear area of hostiles before KO. If timed right, you can keep gasbag in same area while tranqing by alternating freezing and shooting.
