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. PUT THIS UP SO EVERYBODY CAN SEE!!!
Killed a lvl 90, ark mobile sp (max lvl 300). I was lvl 76.
Went to get 4x exp before I killed it.
Didn’t get a level up.
Killing one of these things should give you at least two level ups, just saying. They’re monsters. You don’t even get their full power when you tame them, and you don’t even get a level up when you kill them.
