We report field-induced magnetic phase transitions and transport properties of antiferromagnetic DyPtBi. We show that DyPtBi hosts a delicate balance between two different magnetic ground states, which can be controlled by a moderate magnetic field. Furthermore, it exhibits giant anomalous Hall effect (σA=1540ω-1cm-1,θAHE=24%) in a field-induced type-I spin structure, presumably attributed to the enhanced Berry curvature associated with avoided band crossings near the Fermi energy and/or nonzero spin chirality. The latter mechanism points DyPtBi towards a rare potential realization of anomalous Hall effect in an antiferromagnet with face-centered-cubic lattice that was proposed in [Physical Review Letters 87, 116801 (2001)10.1103/PhysRevLett.87.116801].
