I play on xbox and they can throw me far so i.
Tame one put it on mountain make parachute and made it throw me where you want to go.
You might want something in a cryopod that you can use if you need it
These things should wear full body armor and weild weapons!
A good berry collector and for high distance places it can throw you on top a cliff
So I tamed one of these guys and wanted to know what they did while next to a swamp and he fed me to the SARCOS and KAPROS🥺
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.
Would be awesome if Gigantopithecus could ride two-seated mounts with you, even if just for us singleplayers to feel like we have company!
Amazing fiber harvester, mine’s just a level 15, left it on wander for a while and boomm 2k worth
Don’t have to manual collect now
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
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!
