How to Find Colossus 16 in Shadow of the Colossus PS4 - Where is Colossus 16
Now it's time to find the final colossus in the game. Head out of the temple on Agro and ride straight across the field. Make your way over to the gap in the mountain and ride through, then take a left. Keep left and ride along the valley before making a right and keeping the large mountain on your left. You're trying to reach the large mountain structure in the distance - the one that looks important rather than just scenery.
Once you reach it, ride along its edge (to the right as you approach) until you see three pillars. Enter here and there is a closed door. Jump off Agro and then shine your sword into the centre of the door. The door will open and you can go inside.
Carry on through and head up the stairs on Agro. There's a small bridge that you must ride across, so charge across (sorry for your loss!). Keep moving on foot, and climb up as high as you can. When you reach a larger platform, walk along until you can go inside the tower-like structure you're climbing. Through here you'll reach what looks like a dead end. To your right as you face out are a series of discs. You can climb these. Get to the top and you'll trigger a cutscene that reveals Colossus 16, the final boss in the game.
How to Beat the 16th Colossus in Shadow of the Colossus
Colossus 16 is huge and fires bombs at you. To get close enough you need to use the cover provided and move between the underground tunnels. You'll eventually get close enough to trigger another cutscene and the start of the fight, proper, against Colossus 16.
Now you are actually climbing up Colossus 16. This first part is relatively easy. Just keep climbing up the obvious path until you can get to the back of Colossus 16. There's a weak spot here that you can stab. This will cause Colossus 16 to bring his hand down to feel for you. Use this opportunity to leap onto the hand.
From the hand you'll see a weak spot on his left bicep. Leap to it when you get the chance, then stab it. The hand will come down again. Grab it and then fire arrows at the beast when you're near it's head. The hand should move towards the body, allowing you to jump over and then reach the head.
The main weak spot is on the head of Colossus 16. Hold on when you're being thrashed about, and stab when you get the chance. As long as you don't take a risk and ge thrown off, keep stabbing and kill Colossus 16.
Well done! You've defeated the 16th Colossus in Shadow of the Colossus on PS4. There are no more colossi to defeat. You've killed them all! Hope you feel good about yourself!
