I don't know if most people already use this method; however, I couldn't find it on this board.

Since Metal Gigantuar was giving me trouble, I found out a good way to capture him even if one is not too high in level:

1. Weaken him with your attacks until he has 1000 or less HP (using a ravager feral link helps)

2. Use the regular cactuar's feral link which always deals 1000 HP damage + more than 700% sync rate

Caught him in 2 tries.

Do all feral links ignore type based resistance similar to how Meteor Javelin and Ultima Arrow do?

I don't think so; however Cactuar's feral link does ignore physical defense because it only deals 1000 HP damage; which, normally, isn't that much.

It's only useful in this fight 'cause the metal gigantuar has only 7777 hp.

Or, you could weaken him then when he's close to death switch to MED/MED/COM and do a feral link.
Nier is best gaming I've had since KH and FFX. One that breaks my heart yet keeps it warm and hopeful and happy. We definitely need more games like this.

can't you just beat him up until his chain is at 200% or so, then ultima arrow him to death?

^ You need to feral link kill it for the increased capture rate
I think I know, I don't think I know. I don't think I know that I know.
I think I know even though I don't think I know. I don't think I think.

Of course one can kill it with most feral links, however, the cactuar's is the most effective one, because it hurts him a lot than most others + it has an extremely high sync rate, improving your chances of getting one by a lot.

I've been on the Archylt Steppe for an two hours, and I've fought Cactuar once, with Battlemania. Unfortunately, I didn't get his crystal. Are there any tricks to get Cactuar appear more often?
Hope Estheim. 'Nuff said.
