The Mactera Stinger is a vicious variant of the Mactera species encountered on Hoxxes IV. Unlike its projectile-wielding kin, the Stinger forgoes ranged attacks in favor of a brutal, close-quarters stinging attack. Dwarves should be wary of this flying foe, as its potent venom and swift strikes can quickly turn the tide of a battle.
— Miner's Manual Description

The Mactera Stinger is readily identifiable by its oversized, barbed stinger that protrudes from its abdomen. This stinger is not only a weapon, but also likely plays a role in injecting venom or toxins during its attack. The Stinger's wings are slightly smaller than those of other Mactera, suggesting an adaptation for faster maneuverability and close-range combat.

Mactera Stingers primarily attack by diving down from ceilings to deliver their stinging attacks. They are agile flyers and can change direction quickly, making them difficult targets for Dwarves.

The Mactera Stinger's primary threat lies in its powerful melee attack. This attack is lightning-fast and can deal significant damage to Dwarves caught unaware. Additionally, the stinger injects a potent venom that can quickly reduce a Dwarf's health if left untreated.

Due to this, the need to target their weakpoints becomes far more strategic when it comes to dealing with them.
