How to kill giants

Recommended Posts

Shin    73

Just some fun ways to deal with giants. I know everyone can easily be kited and killed without being hit (except the dragonfly) but this is more fun. :D

1. Glommers Bell of Doom
- make the giant asleep. (flute, mandrake, sleep darts, wickerbottom's sleep book)
- go near it and ring the bell
- it didn't kill the giant but will deal a massive amount of damage
- a second bell ring will definitly kill it

2. Gunpowder Barbeque
- make the giant asleep
- place a stack of 10 gunpowder near it (each gunpowder will deal 200 dmg, so 10x200 = 2000dmg)
- Will insta-kill the giant
- careful: items will get burned and meat cooked! Only the dragonfly is immune to it.
- you can also use a stack of 40 slurtle slime

3. The Expensive Giant Shredder
- you need 34 tooth traps
- place them close to one spot
- lure the giant in and watch him die

If you know some good or funny giant killing tactics, please share. :D

Another tactic

4. Darts, Darts everywhere.

-20 blow darts (preferably standard blow darts)

-each blowdart deals 100 damage (100 damage x 20 Blowdarts = 2,000 Damage)

-Keep your distance.

I have one, but it requires debugspawn and there is a high chance you will die anyway.

 

What is it?

This sounds really effective and blowdarts are not that hard to make.

Debugspawn all of the giants in, enjoy the show. most of them will die, and the dragonfly will usually win.

 

I've already done that. Dragonfly also won.

But it's still fun to watch :( Actually, i have a better idea now. Dragonfly still might win though.

 

Yeah. What is your other idea?

I let dragonfly fight 20 spiderqueens. He grilled them all.

You might have to exclude dragonfly to make this a fair fight since i havent tried this yet, but debugspawn every boss in the game, then a depths worm (Their debugspawn is simply "worm") or two, a few pighouses, a spider den, then enjoy the show. you might have to use the Invincible cheat to stay alive though.

I have another one. But I don't know how to spawn the birchnut-guardians. Than I would build a circle of it and place the dragonfly in the mid. I want to see how many birchnutter it would take.

Given that they're made of nice flammable wood... The dragonfly would win very quickly.

Only real men fight them alone. Get 3 log suits(or something better), 3 football helmets (or shelmet), two weapons of your choice and go leeroy Jenkins. I advice you to get at least 10 salves/ jerky/honey poultice.

To kill them, attack between aoe(2-3 hits), tank their swings. This is important: dodge their charge, hurricane etc and  wait for an opening.

BTW, I tried to lead them to a bee mine field, and I was surprised. Guess what happened :-)

whisper: don't try it 

All bees dead. I tried that,too. xD

I've been stacking up normal treeguards behind my base, I don't know how they will go against the dragonfly, my game crashed last time he showed up and started burning down my base :(

Make Deerclops fight the Dragonfly 1vs1. Deerclops will always win this fight.

If I put 9 gunpowder and then dart the giant the loot still gets burned?

If he does not die from the gunpowder, and is not on fire when he dies, then no.

Just tried that, dragonfly won. not even joking. Dragonfly was apparently immune to being frozen while in enraged fire mode of doom.

Blowdarts help, it's a good tactic with most of the bosses (discluding the Ancient Guardian and Spider Queen)

Dragonfly: Perfect kills.

Berger: Perfect hits but moving out of charges is good.

Deerclops: Move around more, he'll freeze you.

Goose: Works but he's a "hop-y" erm... thing.

Works with our good old friend the tree guardian (leif)

But I think we get a bit off topic. Let's find another strategies without using cheats.

 

My new world has a lovely reed trap that I intend to use for my amusement on all but the dragonfly!!
