I dare you to raise one!! They are savage if you got two high lvl parents (about lvl 140ish) and you get imprinting on it. The thing will become an adult with about 230% melee and basically one chomp any bronto!!! But on the down side you loose your job and your girlfriend
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 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!
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
Once you get giga eggs and everyone tells you how much the Gigas eat when growing up don’t listen to them. I play completely solo on official 1x and can raise these things with a Maewing and a tek trough. 1 giga eats about 1 to 1.5 tek troughs every 24 hours. So if you have 2 or 3 tek troughs of raw meat and it’s a juvenile or above you can step away from ark and GO OUTSIDE AND GET FRESH AIR. Also a maewing filled with cooked meat can last a giga through the whole baby stage without the meat spoiling before baby stage ends. So a recap is baby stage use maewing with slot cap of cool meat and then use raw meat in a few tek troughs. Easy raise. I do this solo on official 1x
I abosolutly hate when you tame one it hp goes down I could a level 17 with around 83,000 hp but when I tamed it and levels it up to level 1,000 it hp was only like 17,000 hp please up so people can know
If you're doing it solo. Make sure to bring everything you need before start knocking it out. If your base are a bit far away, you won't have time to travel back and forth. Giga can wake up very fast. If you don't have good Longneck rifle. Just craft a lot of crossbow with twice the number of tranq arrow as suggest by Dodorex(just in case), and have double the narcotic. If you're not using all of it, you can use it later anyway so nothing is waste. Go for lvl150 Giga and tame with kibble, low level giga is a waste of times and taming with prime meat is a pain, do the perfect tame(search it up). I tamed lvl150 on official pve.
If you want to tame a giga just bring a lot of darts whit a good rifle and trap it using 4 metal gateways and a couple of large bear traps try to trap it in a box (first set up something like this using metal gate ways in a shape like this |_| and place the large bear trap in the middle and try to get the giga into the box the large trap will stop the giga form moving for a short time giving you a chance to trap fully so you can start to knock out the giga it can take up to 250 darts for a lvl 300 if mobile and only for a low lvl like 1-50 it can take up to 60-90 darts when you knock it out you have to place A TON of bio toxin or narcotics to keep it a sleep because it torpor go down like FAST and by fast I mean FAST so you have feed it narcotics or bio toxin a lot (if on mobile use a balm best using a 10x balm that you can get form the hunters tubule there not a 100% chance to get balm for the hunter tubule but there is a good chance to get a balm) and use prime meat of if you can kibble well when tamed they get a big nerf because they lose most of their health and a lot of damage so they are weaker but quite useful for raiding and attacking bases so I do recommend to try tame them on a PVP sever or a PVX sever on a PVE sever they are not as useful but they are still a good tame….)
