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.
Me and my dad play ark and we’re really competitive. We both work to get new Dino’s that the other doesn’t have. He has a tuso and velon on his world(ragnarok) I got a bloodstalker, magmasaur, maewing, and I’m planing to get a giga. My dad said if I got a giga he would try to get one as well, but he tried getting one and he each time he went to the giga. He also didn’t know if the giga can’t hit you , it’ll run. Then my dad thought he almost knocked it out lol. He and his argy had a 1 tap death from a lvl 4 giga
Fun fact! These creatures most likely travelled in packs, and were much lighter than trex! Although they are bigger than trex, if they were in a 1v1 trex would probably win, although if they were on there natural conditions, A.K.A a 5v1 the giganotosaurus pack would win.
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
