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.
I died My griffin right next to giga. My stone structures next to giga. Giga’s Brain: I rather eat stone than griffin. I get my stuff that’s right near giga. Back away. Tamed it while eating stone. SUCCESS. Now I have a lvl 170 giga that murders everything and my griffin still alive. Thanks to gigas Favoring stone over food
After his death by giga, he got weapons and a home (thatch). Then he explored. He saw a rex nearby. After checking that they weren’t as bad as a giga, he decided to kill it. He shot a couple arrows. Then it came after him. Then he saw the HEALTH bar at 1,400. Then Gunner realized his arrows only did 50 damage. NOT AGAIN. He ran and ran and then hid in his small base. He thought he was safe until a rex head poked through his window. CRUNCH. The base was destroyed. SPLAT. Gunner was killed.
