Gigantosaurus is a genus of carcharodontosaurid from the Early Cenomanian stage of Cretaceous Argentina. Its only known species is G.carolinii. Carcharodontosaurus will be an alternate skin for it.

In Real Life

Although its remains are incomplete, Giganotosaurus was a large predator, with the known two individuals being 12.4 and possibly 13.2 meters (41-43 feet) in length, around 3.7 meters tall and weighing around 7 tonnes (15,400 lbs), making it up 90 cm longer, but significantly lighter, than "Sue." The larger of the two specimens, has been considered closer in scale to the type specimen than linear scaling would produce. It has been hypothesized that it may have simply had a larger dentary, rather than actually being significantly larger.

It probably hunted large sauropods such as Andesaurus, Limaysaurus and Nopcsaspondylus, as well as other mid-sized animals like Ekrixinatosaurus or juvenile sauropods.

At safest top speeds, Giganotosaurus could have probably moved at 31 miles per hour (50km/h), making it a fairly fast animal for what it was hunting.

Giganotosaurus was probably proportioned similarly to closely-related genera such as Mapusaurus and Carcharodontosaurus. The arms were probably proportionally small and relatively immobile, similarly to its relative Acrocanthosaurus. Its bite wasn't as powerful as derived tyrannosaurs, meaning it was probably using its jaws to inflict large bleeding wounds.

In-game description

Territories

This is a predator that needs to hunt prey of equivalent or greater size. Thus, they are often hunting out in the open plains, or lying in wait along the treeline.

Combat notes

Giganotosaurus or "Giga" for short, is one of the isle's apex predators. However, with their huge leg muscles, they are also paradoxically the fastest. Their bite force is nothing compared to the bite of the T.rex but to make up for this con, they could bleed out their prey quicker. Fighting other apexes alone can still lead to a lethal outcome. Gigas often use hit and run tactics, biting then retreating. When pack hunting, one Giga acts as a distraction while the others dash in to take chunks out of their prey. Like any large theropod, ambushing with sneak attacks is a solid strategy for them as well.

Prey Items

In The Isle

Giganotosaurus has high bleed damage and high damage and is quite agile.
Your normal meal is to hunt medium-sized animals, while you are roam around or alone, that have few defenses or to steal preys from smaller predators.
You can fight other apex predators alone, a Tyrannosaurus can break your leg and finish you off with around 5-6 Bites. But you need 8 Bites to kill a Rex. Compared to a Spinosaurus, the Giga is equally strong. But with a pack of 2 Giganotosaurus you can bleed out 1 Tyrannosaurus pretty easy, if alt-turn on the Server is disabled, as well if you are hunting preys like Shantungosaurus or Triceratops.
Giganotosaurus has the 3 highest bleed resistant in the game, making it a challenge for Acrocanthosaurus and Allosaurus to fight it and can kill them easily.

Habitat

Giganotosaurus live in the open plains to hunt for large game, competing with Tyrannosaurus rex and Acrocanthosaurus for food. They often live in pairs to hunt their prey when in the open plains.

General Information

Pros:

  • Highest Bleed Damage, Stamina and
    Second Highest base bite damage and Speed of any Apex.
  • Sneaks and goes pretty quick.
  • Quick bite rate.
  • Can also regenerate Stamina while walking or standing.
     
  • Adult Giga can hold out pretty long with a full stomach.

Cons:

  • You need patience to bleed out your big opponents.
    So if you want to attack a big dinosaur, like a Rex, Trike or a Shant, try to hit them from behind.
  • Has a relative long Stamina regeneration time.
  • Hard to hide due to its large size.
  • It can be overtaken by a Tyrannosaurus, if he is close to you. A ambush would be saver.
     
  • The Juvie and Sub are relative slow and they have low Stamina. They are also very big and give much Food.

Behind The Scenes

It was modeled by Jake Baardse.[1]

It is confirmed that it's sounds were intentionally made to be like that of the Giganotosaurus from the game Dino Crisis 2.[2]
