How to Find Colossus 1 in Shadow of the Colossus PS4 - Where is Colossus 1
After the opening scenes play out, jump on your horse, Agro, then head out of the temple. Raise your sword into the air and you'll see which direction you need to head in order to find Colossus 1. Ride across the open plain. Head towards the opening in the rock face and head up the stairs. Dismount from Agro and climb up the planted wall. Make your way up and around the platforms (rolling underneath the fallen pillar) and carry on until you are at the top. You'll reach a more open area and meet your first colossus.
How to Beat the 1st Colossus in Shadow of the Colossus
Colossus 1 will walk off after you first spot him, so run after him. He has weak spots on the rear of his left leg, rear of his right arm, and on the top of his head. As with all Colossus fights in Shadow of the Colossus, you must drive your sword into these weak spots to take the beast down.
Tackle the left leg first, climbing up the fur and then stabbing at the glowing area. Stab the glowing section until the symbol disappears. Then climb up and head to the right arm. Again, repeatedly stab the glowing weak area of Colossus 1 until the symbol disappears. Now climb to the head of Colossus 1 and stab the glowing area until the beast falls.
Well done! You've defeated the first Colossus in Shadow of the Colossus on PS4. Head on to find out how to find and how to beat Colossus 2 in Shadow of the Colossus on PS4.
