On mobile, you can actually harvest fiber with them. Just get off of your ape in a bush and they will squat down and gather a good amount of fiber.
These things should wear full body armor and weild weapons!
Their are very useful to get across rivers but make sure to have parachutes
Would be awesome if Gigantopithecus could ride two-seated mounts with you, even if just for us singleplayers to feel like we have company!
TLC patch to be added in March 2018 to add armor degrading attack, jump ability, and aiming system for throw. Like for people to see!
Possibly the most useful creature to go caving with as his small size but large health and damage allows him to withstand onycs,spiders and scorpions haven't encountered a arthurplura yet so not sure how effective he is against it
They can throw you!!!!!!!!!!!!
Up so nubs can see
To the people saying that these things should be able to wield swords:
Imagine being on a pvp server, and then someone with a fully imprinted and mutated big monke with 1.5K% melee shows up and pulls out an ascendent sword that does 400 base damage...
Sounds pretty balanced and fun
Situation described above will result in 6000 damage per hit btw, aka enough to kill tamed giga (without saddle) in 3 hits
Get two of these, paint them black and use them as bodyguards.
Can climb on zip lines.
Absolute spider monkeys. Mission impossible planet of Apes
