How To Defeat The Third Colossus In Shadow Of Colossus

How To Defeat The Third Colossus In Shadow Of Colossus
So you’ve beat the first and second, now you need to beat the Third. This guide will tell you How To Defeat The Third Colossus In Shadow Of Colossus so you can clear another statue at the temple and be one step closer to your goal.

This one can be a little tough, especially with the lack of grip you have at the moment. Finding some lizards to improve stamina is not a terrible idea. The Third Colossus is a knight and wields a huge stone pillar as a weapon in his right hand. His greatest weapon, and his greatest weakness. In the combat area there is a very large stone structure on the floor, a metallic appearing circle. Stand on that. The Colossus will swing its massive stone pillar down toward you, dodge it. You will need to do this 3-4 times. You will know it’s correct as his normal pillar attack is a directly down vertical strike, but his other ability sees nearly the entire pillar come into contact with the ground.

Eventually a very brief cutscene will play, showing that his right arms armor has been damaged. You can now scale it. Wait for another strike and then climb the pillar up to his elbow. Jump across to his gut and take out the weakpoint in his stomach. From there, jump to the other arm before climbing to the head. This bits a marathon, not a sprint. He will throw you around a lot so don’t try to rush it.

That covers everything for the Third Colossus. Now, learn how to kill the 4th.
