(im on mobile).....im just doing pursuits with my quetz and notice a giga in the mountain(where griffins live) and decided to graple hook a giga on its hip...then it spins and bite like crazy....(good thing it cant reach me)....decided to knock it out rather than killing it.....i pull out my bow(ascendant) and tranq arrows/toxicant arrows) then start shooting at his face....then after that i fall off....f a l l o f f......luckily it was a sign that the giga will be knock out so i follow it and shoot it as many as i can until it is stuck in a rock and nowhere to go.....i put a smug face and say BOW TO YOUR KING......after i knock it out 2 rexs and 1 griffin comes at me...and you know what?....IT IS A LIFE AND DEATH SITUATION.........i violently swing my sword like a warrior.....GOOD THING MY SWORD IS RELIABLE.......CHECK THE KNOCKED DOWN GIGA AND ITS TORPOR NEARLY RAN OUT.....good thing im prepared and have lots of narcotics and soothing balm in my quetz.......finally tamed it.....(its a huge success for me because it took me 10 tries to bring it down)
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
I decided to move my base from one of the populated areas to the cold north, near a mountain of course, so all the materials was close to me… So after a few days i went to bed in my cosy “little” home, but when I woke up I got a message ‘Danger nearby’, which I normally do not see, even when there is a rex or a spino in the neighbourhood… Sooo I went outside to see, well to see nothing, cause this bastard ate all my dinos! (And then me of course, when you start doing something, you finish it)
