The Maewing is a creature in Genesis: Part 2.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Dossier[edit | edit source]

Our missing crew called this duck-billed glider a 'maewing'.
They genetically engineered it to be a wet nurse and surrogate parent for all kinds of baby animals.
Babies supposedly find their milk irresistible.


Behavior[edit | edit source]

Engineered to be the ultimate parent, in addition to automatically taking care of your babies, the Maewing can steal enemy offspring by grabbing them.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

It resembles a hybrid mix of a Platypus and a Sugar Glider.

Color Scheme and Regions[edit | edit source]

This section displays the Maewing's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Maewing. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Maewing 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 Maewing's regions by entering cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID> in the cheat console. For instance, cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6 would color the Maewing's "main body" 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]


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.

Nursing Effectiveness[edit | edit source]

The Nursing Effectiveness stat increases the range in which the Maewing acts as a Feeding Trough. It can only be leveled up by a player.

The stat completely replaces Movement Speed, and does not affect the speed of the Maewing.

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against the Maewing.

General[edit | edit source]

Maewings are passive creatures and will not attack when provoked. Rather, they seem inclined to fly off at rapid speeds when attacked. They're fast enough that they're difficult to keep up with if you're using just the Federation's suit.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The best way to kill a Maewing is trapping it (If wild) and killing it with a Bow. They won't fight back, but unless trapped, they will jump and then glide away, forcing you to track it down.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

The Maewing is fairly weak, meaning nearly any weapon can be used to kill it or knock it out.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

Maewings are non-aggressive and pose little dangers to survivors or nearby entities. Tracking them after they glide may lead you to other dangers, however.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Maewings are fairly weak to any weapon, so long as you have a method to trap it.

Taming[edit | edit source]

To tame a Maewing, knock it out- preferably with Tranq Arrow before feeding it berries or meat with meat being far more effective. Other knock-out methods are also effective, but may not be as viable. Even high-level Maewings will not take long to knock out as they have a meager torpor value.

Taming Food[edit | edit source]

Being an Omnivore, The Maewing will enjoy any type of food you will throw at it, with a preference for the usual Prime Meat, Mutton or Basic Kibble.

Preferred Food[edit | edit source]

Basic Kibble

Taming Strategy[edit | edit source]

Due to its cowardly intention of immediately jumping up into the air with extremely fast gliding and reaction, trapping a Maewing to tame it is preferred early. While it is possible to track them down thanks to the mobility provided by the starting Federation Tek Suit, this can put you in many dangerous areas. However, once you obtain a quality Tek Bow or other high-end tranquilizing weapon, even high-level Maewings go down in only one or two shots.

Trap Box Method[edit | edit source]

One of the most popular way to trap mobile creatures is the classic method of building a trap. In the case for the Maewing, one of the more popular early-game methods is to create a small box of billboards, leaving one side open for the Maewing to enter. Next to the billboards place 3 wooden pillars, and using those pillars, create a thatch ceiling that covers the entirety of the billboard box.

Once the trap is set, either obtain Rare Flower if you intend to lure the Maewing aggressively into the trap, or use Giant Bee Honey to lure it if it happens to be within the trail of the trap. For either of the trap, its recommended to clear out the area beforehand.

Under either method, quickly go behind the Maewing once its in the trap, and fill in the final board to successfully trap it. If the ceiling trap is laid out correctly, it will not be able to fly out.

Net Projectile Method[edit | edit source]

Simply fire the Net Projectile Genesis Part 2 Icon.png at the creature as it will not react to being too close. Due to its low torpidity, it can be easily knocked out with just a few Tranquilizer Dart or Tranq Arrow, but the net will only stay for a minute before breaking, so knock it out before it breaks.

Utility[edit | edit source]

  • Maewing acts as Feeding Trough for baby creatures. However, you need to provide it with food supplies that the babies would normally eat (i.e: Raw Meat for Carnivores, Berries for Herbivores, and for examples of special cases, Ambergris Genesis Part 1 Icon.png for Magmasaur and Wyvern Milk for Wyvern.
    • Note that the babies will still eat whatever it can eat from its inventory before seeking for Maewings with "Nursing" activated.
    • Using in combination with a Procoptodon can reduce the rate at which food is consumed while giving the imprinting bonus provided said Procoptodon is mate boosted and is female.
    • Maewings can level up a stat called nursing effectiveness which increases the range of the nursing effect. It also increases the efficiency of the food provided to baby dinos. For example, a Maewing with 150% nursing effectiveness will allow its stored raw meat to provide 75 food to carnivores as opposed to the standard 50. This overall reduces the amount of food needed to raise babies, so long as the Maewing is providing it.
  • Maewing can carry (and steal enemy) babies at its saddle, up to a maximum of 4. Unless it is an adult, any babies can be snatched by Maewing.
    • Unlike the Procoptodon babies are prevented from growing in size and are then released as full grown adults at 100% Maturity.
    • Keeping a Maewing in a small area such as Cave while taking care of large creatures such as Brontos is not recommended at all.
  • Maewing lays eggs of random quality at random times, even under the influence of Oviraptor. When picked up, the egg will state what quality it is. Below is the table for the chances of a specific egg appearing.
Egg Quality Egg Size Chance
Basic Extra Small 35%
Simple Small 25%
Regular Medium 17.5%
Superior Large 12.5%
Exceptional Extra Large 7.5%
Extraordinary Special 2.5%

Roles[edit | edit source]

  • Raising Baby Dinos: Can automatically take care of your baby creatures. Place the food babies would normally eat in Maewing inventory, then turn on feeding trough mode for hassle-free baby raising. Babies can be either in pouch or very close proximity to get a trough symbol. (Level Weight and Nursing Effectiveness in order to store as much food in the Maewing as possible, and to give it the furthest feeding range and efficiency.
  • Thief: The Maewing can steal enemy baby creatures and make a quick getaway through the air by gliding.
  • Travel: The Maewing is the jack of all trades of travel and can get all around Genesis Part 2, as well as the other maps. It has great speed when running, gliding, and swimming, and also doesn't possess an oxygen stat. It even has great base weight and stamina.
  • Baby Transport: The Maewing can carry 4 baby creatures, both on the ground and in flight.
  • Resource Gatherer: Though not quite as efficient as a late-game dino, the Maewing can gather berries, meat, fiber, and hide early on.
  • Speed Demon: With some maneuvering, The Maewing's gliding speed can reach extremely fast speeds, perhaps even the fastest thing in the game (NOT TESTED YET), which can be used to do some sick tricks or fast travel. To activate this, first initiate the glide (Preferably at some heights), then proceed to a downward dive until the visual effect of speed activates and, to finish, when at full speed, strafe left and right until the visual effect (Air sliding off the Maewing) happen, after which you can truly experience speed!
  • Ultimate Taming-Assist: Taming has never been easier than with this creature! First of all, it can gather ressources on the go in case of a sudden need of narcotics, berries or prime meat. It can can also easily bait medium to large creatures into traps due to it's jump and ability to fit trough dinosaur gates and, surprisingly, can dish out a surprising amount of damage even if bred at moderate levels (Easy to breed as 2 offsprings come out at a given time, also can take care of them automatically), even able to deal with a low to mid level alpha raptor. The abundance of good quality saddles for these cute beasts in Genesis: Part 2 loot crates is to be noted, providing good defense in case of an ambush or getting stuck.

Weight Reduction[edit | edit source]

The Maewing reduces the Weight of the following resources by the listed amount while they are in its inventory:

Resource Reduction
Berries 50%
Meat 50%

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The code name of the Maewing is Milk Glider.
  • The Maewing was revealed in a holiday SurviveTheArk post.
  • It is a hybrid mix of a platypus and a sugar gilder, two mammals that live in Australia.
    • Australia is the country where the character Helena Walker is from.
  • The holiday post said that the Maewing is "Engineered to be the ultimate interstellar wet nurse and surrogate parent". This hints that the Maewing was genetically engineered to live upon the Genesis-Ship, similarly to how the dinosaurs on the ARKs were also genetically engineered for their environments, i.e genetically engineered Wyverns on Scorched Earth.
  • Maewings are currently listed as being genderless, but surprisingly, they can still mate with one another. They seem to hatch from their eggs instantly upon being laid, so long as the conditions for incubating the egg are met.
