These guys SHOULD work similar to a companion in other games. It should be able to wield a sword along with the ability to wear more than just a helmet. Having a tame that acts as a warrior would be very cool for battle in ARK.
Gigantopithecus Fibrarator is content to spend it’s days wandering the Redwood Forests. You’d think they’d be more aggressive and alert due to the high amounts of danger within their typical environment, which is the one reason I don’t understand their peaceful nature.
Even despite this, Gigantopithecus Fibrarator is not bothered if another wild animal accidentally physically bumps into it, and is happy to lap up food from survivors, mostly the many berries that populate the island. However, Gigantopithecus Fibrarator becomes seriously enraged whenever physically bumped into by said survivors, causing it to attack and give chase until it either kills them or loses sight of them.
Gigantopithecus Fibrarator, once tamed, is an excellent bodyguard and companion. It’s gathering capabilities are superb, and can help master in dangerous situations. A certain tribe worships them for these qualities. I personally refer to them as “Ape Lovers”.
Do i am The only one that wants him to use swords,guns
And full flak armor,shields,its basicly has hands of a human so IT can do things like a human like open a door and ride dino,s IT Will be cool that he must ride a dino.
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
On Xbox, left tab throws you (It's like a spear, the longer you hold down the harder it throws, but there is a max), the other special attack, what you would use for crouching, is what you use to pick up only fiber, and regular attack only picks up berries. It can sprint, swim fast, and jump. Best of all it can wear hats. I equipped my hat with a cowboy hat skin, and it looks hilarious.
