When a gasbag has any amount of air in it has an 80% damage reduction (same as reaper king). Because of its great reduction, ability to wear saddles, have imprint bonus, eat veggie cakes, and a mate boost, it’s arguably the best tanking dino, but whenever it’s hit it looses a small amount of gas.
Use it for tanking. They have something that no dino has is a defense boost it takes almost no damage when shot by a Tek rifle. Just have a high lvl saddle and a Tek rifle only does19 to 40 damage is that op or not
Great for ferrying metal ore from the outer edges of the map, just keep an eye on your air so you don't lose half your health from fall damage - although this can be circumvented by the dismount/remount trick before you hit the ground
