*Flying over the mountains on an argy, going to get a wolf.*
*Stops for a rest.*
Me: An allo? What’s it doing here? Haven’t seen one of those this high up.
Me: Woah, that’s a giga! I’m gonna tame it.
*Looks it up, finding that it’s way too expensive.*
Me: Welp, it’s a tad close to my base. I’m gonna divebomb it and kill it.
*Divebombs and gets bit.*
Me: Holy... half my argy’s health is gone. I’ll be careful next time.
*Continues to divebomb, and both argy and I become his snacc.*
Me: No! Raven! Nooooo!
*Grabs bary and goes to retrieve stuff.*

Moral of the story: don’t mess with dangerous stuff. Especially the giga. You’ll save yourself a ton of time, effort, and stuff avoiding these overgrown-megalizards.
I just had one of the most TERRIFYING ark moments of my life. so, on The Island, I took my argy and flew to the tundra to pick out a second base spot, I was looking around the mountain and saw a giga below me, I got my telescope and kinda circled over it and looked at it for a bit, then suddenly I realized my argy was flying down... it ran out of stamina and at that moment I was like: “sh_t were gonna fricking die.” I legit thought me and my precious argy were going to die because it crossed RIGHT BELOW US as we were going down and we TOUCHED. IT. once we landed I kinda stood there waiting for the stamina bar to go up and I must have been blessed or something because I got the hell out of there the moment I could see the stamina going up. The giga didn’t notice me, it was busy killing mammoths. THANK GOD. I’m still shaking... I got close enough that I could see the Dododex button.
A level 28 giga spawned close to where I lived and I was really worried it would have destroyed all my games and everything I build. So like an idiot I took my quetzal, grappled it and drained 1000 bullets from my assault rifle into the giga only to take away half its health. But if you hurt it bad and it can’t reach you it will eventually run. Try to drive it out to sea and make sure it’s focused on you. It won’t realize that it’s health is being drained by megs and like that your house and tames are safe. PUT THIS UP SO EVERYBODY CAN SEE!!!
Had a tough time finding Gigas at all on The Island, Ragnarok and Valguero. Been a while since I played Ark but remembered we used to tame them on The Center so I went and tried there. 3 hours later I tamed a 130 and150 male. Granted I’m playing on SP but still I was doing the same on the other maps and found next to nothing for days. Don’t waste your time looking on any other map
