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. PUT THIS UP SO EVERYBODY CAN SEE!!!
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
At the Highlands on Ragnarok, if you see a giga, try luring it into a cave at the river where there is a small pond. You can lure the giga inside it and it will be trapped. From there, just pump it with tranq arrows. Alternatively, you can shrink the size of the pond by putting stone gates so the giga can't move much. After you're done, just cryo the tamed giga or build a ramp so it can climb out
While a absolute BEAST of a tame, the giga has some factors you have to consider.
1. Enraging. The giga will enrage and attack EVERYTHING if it enraged. Its eyes will turn a luminous yellow colour and it will be angry.
2. Feeding. The giga will enrage (see above) if there is no meat available too it, whether in a trough or in its inventory. This will stop once it has acquired enough meat to keep its hunger away. (This does not apply to babies. They will just starve)
3. Imprinting. If you have a giga, breed it and get 100 percent imprint. If you don't, the giga will enrage permanently until death when its health drops below a certain amount. (I think 40 percent).
4. Using your giga. These things have a nasty bite and would be perfect for pvp except for the fact you have to factor in the above and that you are a sitting duck for any sniper while mounted. Besides that, it is perfect for pvp.
Hope this helps. But remember, these things can still be countered with varying difficulty.
Person who said they wanted a platform saddle.
Firstly, oh, sure, it's soooo balanced to have a F*CKING 17K HEALTH AT LEVEL ONE, INCREDIBLY HIGH DAMAGE TAME WITH AN ARMY OF RAPTORS ON TOP,
Secondly, these things will eat you over a bit of fall damage, imagine what they'd think of a platform saddle.
Thirdly, look at them, to they look like they could hold up a platform? Do they? Really? I mean, seriously.
