ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
Best way to tame them from my experience on the island is to use metal behemoth gates to make a taming pen. Or to use stone (be aware it may break before you knock it out, so bring spares and get ready to risk life and limb), and shoot from a Quetz platform saddle. Bring lots of arrows, narcs and Kibble (if you're taming solo), and preferably a lot of cross bows or just a high damage journey+ one.
More Giganotosaurus Taming & KO Tips
The things you need to tame a giga:-
1)Flyer (recommending an argy).
2)4-5 dinosaur metal gateways.
3)1-2 large bear traps.
4)10x soothing balm if your playing on mobile.
5)Your KO weapon (most recommended are ascendant longneck rifle or ascendant crossbow).
6)Your KO ammo (bring a decent amount).
7)Taming food of your choice (most recommended is raw prime meat or kibble if you can).
8)Decent amount of narcotics or bio toxin.
FIND GIGA: gigas usually spawn at mountains. On the island try looking around the volcano or the two mountains in the snow area.
SET YOUR TRAP: take 3 of your metal gateways and make this shape \_/ then put a large bear trap or 2 in the middle. It’s easier if you build the trap on flat ground.
TRAP THE GIGA: get the giga to follow you and make it go inside the trap, then make sure it’s caught in the bear trap. When it’s stuck in the bear trap go behind it and complete the trap with another gateway. The final shape of the trap looks like a Trapezoidal.
KO THE GIGA: even a low level giga has a lot of torpor and it drops fast so keep shooting no matter what. It’s recommended for a tribe-mate to help you.
START FEEDING: put the food in the giga’s inventory and keep an eye on it’s torpor.
I hope this was helpful 😊
Wooden clubs, mantis, magnifying glass and a few trancs you add that all up you get easy games thank me later
WILD = 80,000 hp
TAMED = 18,000 hp
I'll say no more.....
I was looking to metal to make a saddle then I said to my brother “i am going to tame a giga” as a joke. Not even 10 seconds later a level 55 giga came into view. KEEP IN MIND WE ARE ONLY LEVEL 40!! We are gonna tame it tomorrow with arrows since we don’t have tranq darts😂 wish us luck!
Many a tribe have been foolish enough to think they could fight a wild giga with a tamed and ended up with a dead giga. Don't be them.
Make 4 metal dino gates and 1 large bear trap. Place three frames and door into an incomplete square and the large bear trap in the I between them. Lure the Giga into the trap and while its trapped place 4th down to make the square. Then just light it up with tranqs
I 100% recommend charging straight on a Giga with a wooden club, you won’t regret it.
Just tamed my 1st giga ever while breastfeeding and bouncing the baby. 🏅💪Very cool.
Dunno why no one actually thinks of this but here is the best tip for taming gigas(and probably any other land dino).You just build a giant tower out of metal by using those stick structures.You build a ladder and climb on top of it.you can use walls as platforms.Then just shoot he giga from the top until it gets john cena’d.You can also store meat on top of the tower.Though make shure you have a parachute because it will deastroy the ladder.
Just lure into a metal gate set ups some plant Xs and it will knock out you welcome
