How to Find Colossus 4 in Shadow of the Colossus PS4 - Where is Colossus 4

Head out the temple on Agro and head diagonally to the left across the field. Use your sword to make sure you're riding in the correct direction. There is a clearing between the rock faces that you need to head up. Follow this up and round to the right until you trigger a cutscene that shows what looks like a sunken area of land. Ride Agro round the edge and down to the clearing below. Walk into the area and you'll trigger the awakening of Colossus 4.

How to Beat the 4th Colossus in Shadow of the Colossus

The area you are stood on is actually home to a series of underground tunnels. Head down a tunnel and stay out of sight of Colossus 4. After a while the Colossus will try to look down a tunnel to find you, in turn lowering itself and allowing you to climb onto its tail. Stay hidden until Colossus 4's head is down, then run up and jump onto its tail.

The first weak spot is at the base of Colossus 4's neck. Stab this once and then head to the top of the beast's head. Stab the glowing symbol on the head until it disappears, then take out the symbols at the top of each front leg. Colossus 4 likes to stomp fairly frequently, so keep an eye out for that and hold on tight when it does. Once you're onboard Colossus 4 you shouldn't have too much trouble getting to all the weak spots. With all four symbols fairly close to one another it's not hard to take down colossus 4.
