Everyone starts at 60% normal size.

Every kill grows you, and your health, by 15%.


Online, joining a server that already has it installed:
  • Just join the server!

Offline or with a listen server:
  • Subscribe
  • Launch the old launcher (the last launch option when launching the game), and click the 'Download subscribed items' button at the bottom-right.
  • You should see the mod in the Create Game screen

To start a dedicated server with it:

Start a server with ?modname=giantslayers on the command line (appended to the map). You can also add -sdkfileid=226726898 (note that this number matches the number in the URL for this Workshop page) to the command line to auto-download this mod. For example:

UDK.exe aoctd-frigid_p?modname=giantslayers -sdkfileid=226726898

Change log

  • Fixed TDM (was not scaling after kills)

  • Works with latest patch (35), after breaking because of various variables being optimized out

  • Works with latest patch (30)
  • Displays scale in scoreboard
  • Squish sound (maybe?)

  • Add TO2 as an acceptable game mode (for, e.g., Horde)

  • works on the latest patch (Patch 25), after having broke on Patch 24's release

  • rather than scaling up by a steady '15% of current scale' every time you get a kill, scaling is now:
    • ScaleStealPerKill * ( Enemy's scale - default scale ), plus
    • FlatScalePerKill, plus
    • ScaleMultiplierPerKill * Current Scale
  • Healing now adds on a bonus depending on the enemy's scale; actually, right now, the 'based on your own scale' healing is disabled, but it's a variable flip if we want to turn it back on. This results in much less healing if you're a titan who is just killing 60% size people, almost giving them a chance at fighting back
  • Stamina is restored in the same amount as you heal. Max stamina does not scale up.
  • Health regen scales up (at half the speed of max health)
  • After a certain size (currently 140%) you become a 'small giant'; currently, this means that:
    • your outer collision cylinder stops colliding with other actors. This can cause a little oddness when fighting other players, some clipping through static meshes, etc., but it greatly improves your ability to move around when huge
    • your weapons stop colliding with the world (they'll stick make the thwacking noise, but won't bounce off), in order to make it a bit easier to hit minis
  • at 200% you become a 'large giant', which does nothing
  • you cannot flinch people who are 3.0 times larger than you
  • you cannot parry or be parried by someone who is 3.0 times larger or smaller than you
  • weapon damage and momentum (knockback/kick force) scales up with scale, but only by 1/2 the scaling amount. This is vs. the person you're hitting, which ends up making no sense since your health is also scaling. It _should_ be vs. your size relative to normal, not vs. the other person you're hitting (or at least damage should be, momentum can be what it is right now).
  • if you land on a player who is 1/3 your size or less, they're crushed instantly
  • new message informing you about how big the enemy you killed was and how that'll affect your scale
  • FFA welcome message separated for clarity
  • new welcome message with the current scaling rules

  • enable for all game modes
  • VO pitch scaling (that doesn't replicate)
  • FFA scoring: now based on the largest size you've reached
  • heal 5% of your current max health every time you kill a player
  • push player up a bit before scaling to avoid falling through the world (appears to be working well)
  • disable swimming (ruins, cistern, etc.)
  • friendly greeting message (that should be localized, but isn't, because mod localization seems to be broken)
  • the 'bubble' (enemy-only collision cylinder) scales down in relative radius as you scale up, to the point where it's uninvolved in collision altogether

I mean, it's still a great mod, but isn't good on small clutter maps.
Pvt. Blizz Sep 14 @ 8:26pm 
Well, I'd rather not have a set cap, or if there will be one, atleast allow it to be changed. I mean, I got to 8k size (Took a screenshot.) and I could barrley attack because of weapon hitboxes. xD

There isn't a way to cap that currently. It does tend to break movement, yeah. Not sure if I want to add a cap, but we'll see.

@Crustacean Soup, milpool, Is there any way to tell yourself to stop growing or set a growth cap on singleplayer w/ bots? I keep getting too big and it's harder to move around. I want to set a cap or stop growing at... lets say 250% for example.
