ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
I have 8 of these beauties! 6 females and 2 males, about 4 of those I two man tamed with a buddy. The rest all 6 tribe members were there. If you don't feel like gathering the materials for a trap. (We've only trapped one of these out of the 8) Get a quetzal with a platform saddle and have one person fly and the other shooting with tranq arrows or tranq darts constantly because there torpor goes down quick. It's not super hard. We've even tamed one underwater LOL. Good luck! Be warned you can lose your quetzals or any other tamed animals if you aren't careful! We've lost about 5 quetzal's and a rex in the process of just one giga. When you knock it down stay on it. Shoot 100 narcotics in it once it hits the 50-75% mark on its torpor. People who don't watch it's torpor or keep pumping narcotics into it when it starts dropping are the ones that deal with the "the giga will wake up on full torpor" myth. It's unlikely it will if you know what you're doing. Take my advice! Happy taming!
More Giganotosaurus Taming & KO Tips
Giga gives very low damage to metal structures, so using a metal gateway or billboard will be a great idea.
The best tip is to bola it and knock it out with a club
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!
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.
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
When your giga is out only and only use meat it is good to bring and argy, and a griffin. I hope this helps also use bio toxin.
