ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
Giga's usually spawn on mountains, so I find it easy if u lure it to the bottom of a cliff to the point where it gets stuck then you just to the top of the cliff and shoot it with tranqs. The more tribe mates you have the better
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 😊
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!
This thing is super weak. Recommend taming it with a pack of compies
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.
Here's a glitch of mobile I found that works on most land creatures,
Soo basically when it is near your structure and is aggressive towards you, It might start attacking the structure even when not Trapped
Get a gateway and couple hundred tranq darts or toxicant arrow with ascendant longneck or compound bow/crossbow
Then lure it towards your gateway and keep trying until it starts attacking the structure(A flyer like pteranodon is recommended with high quality saddle)
When it does start attacking the gateway, dismount from flyer at a distance and start firing tranqs, this seem risky but trust me it's safe until allo pack and an alpha raptor ambushes you, you can use a Griffin for this to safely shoot it
But the only problem is when it starts running away you have to chase it down and fire tranqs
With Griffin it won't be that much of a problem tho
Up soo more mobile players can take advantage before devs patches it
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 lure into a metal gate set ups some plant Xs and it will knock out you welcome
TO THE GUY THAT SAID METAL SIGNPOSTS WORK, IT JUST WALKS RIGHT OVER THEM.
