Gigantes is a heavyweight bipedal AC equipped with an exceed orbit core, missile extensions, back mounted dual missile launchers, and grenade cannon weapon arms.
This AC is a cross somewhere between Shadow Age's Grinder and Royal Mist's Kaiser. Asylum is incredibly aggressive and uses a weapon system that can pack an incredible amount of force. The only problem with Asylum is that it is slow and has a very narrow sight lock. The exceed orbits partly make up for this, but only a bit. With so much thought put into power, it appears mobility has been forgotten all-together. That being said, Asylum is fairly well armored and can dish out serious damage against slower opponents.

His AC is a product of a school of though that the best defense is a good offense. He likes to get in close and unleash a flurry of attacks on his opponents. Anyone familiar with his strategy usually hopes not to experience it a second time.
Asylum will, in no uncertain terms, attempt to kill you in the most blunt and primordial sense of the word. His tank style grenade launchers are absurdly powerful, and if you have ever been on the receiving end of a extension enhanced volley of missiles such as those carried by Asylum, you will be aware that you will have only moments to live if you allow a second volley to land. Asylum will rush you from across the arena; he is not very quick so this in itself is not something to fear, however, as long as you are within his line of sight and he has a lock you are in a heap of danger.
All this aside, Asylum is incredibly slow. Even a moderately quick AC can fly circles around him and a hover AC is just cruel via comparison. Just avoid its front and a quick AC may get through the match completely unscathed if enough attention is payed to avoid the exceed orbits.
The name Asylum refers to a place of safety, a fitting name given the style of his AC.
The name Gigantes is the Latin, Spanish and Portuguese plural word for gigans (Latin) & gigante (Portuguese & Spanish), all of which means giant.
