Dark skies, open plains and geysers, what’s the Ninth Colossus got in store? This guide will cover everything you need to know for How To Defeat The Ninth Colossus In Shadow Of Colossus without taking up too much of your time or putting your health at serious risk.
The Ninth Colossus is another environmental based beast. This huge four legged turtle like hulk is powerful and can quickly dispatch of your entire health bar. I hope you’ve been mastering your horse as you’ll need its mobility to get through this one.
In the large open area in front of the cave where the Ninth Colossus spawns, you will notice several geysers, cracks in the surface spewing out water. You need to lure the Colossus to a geyser in order to bring him down. Stay at range, if you are too close it will stomp on you, still too close it will launch fireballs at you. You need to be at a range where it must move to get you. Once it moves over a geyser it will slant to the side a little.
This is your cue to get underneath its belly and shoot the two feet that are at an angle. Once you hit both the beast will roll over and topple. From there, climb its stomach and get onto its back. Wait for it to return to its feet and then navigate the shell on its back to reach its only weak point, the head. Several large hits will be enough to bring him down in one swoop.
If you are unfortunate enough to fall or get knocked off, you can use a geyser to knock him down two more times without having to shoot his feet – it will fall straight to the floor. After that, you’ll have to repeat the basic steps to topple it again.
