You don’t need to trap this to tame, it’s a solo tame. If you run up to it, it will go into turret mode then you need to walk circles around it and keep hitting with tranq until it eventually tries to walk away *in turret mode so really slow walking*
Screw the giga. This is the most OP creature in the game. Pump all levels into stamina, damage, and health. They will literally kill everything in their path. I also recommend putting them on a quetzal. Boom. You get a legit badass fighter jet with infinite ammo.
Once You get a group of these You can put them on a Quetz platform saddle, level up stamina, fill their inventory with raw meat so they never run out of stamina, then set them to turret mode. (Also don’t forget to allow AI special attacks)
Congratulations, You now have a Quetz gunship that runs on raw meat.
A good way to tame these guys is to pick them up with a wyvern (for level selection) and put them in a metal bill board cage outside of the desert.If you don't have a wyvern available, sneak into it's face so it doesn't spike you (or have a buddy do that) and use a riot shield and tranqs.
About a couple weeks ago, I was so lucky I was fooled into thinking a Velonasaur disregarded a shooter when mounting an Allosaur. Just now, I thought about how a Stegosaurus protects it's rider from arrows, and then shot at the Velonasaur between the plates in Hardened mode. I got very little damage comparatively, and knocked it out in relative peace. Stegos are the key, my packmates.
