How to Find Colossus 5 in Shadow of the Colossus PS4 - Where is Colossus 5

Head out of the temple on Agro and ride straight left, to the side of the most immediate range of mountains. You'll ride along a fairly narrow green path along a cliff edge. Ride beyond the small temple-like building and through the next clearing in the mountainside - remember to use your sword to check you're heading in the correct direction. You'll reach a waterlogged area so must carry on without Agro. Swim through into the centre of the structure and climb up onto the walkway. Head up the stairs and you'll trigger a cutscene showing Colossus 5 - the first flying beast you've encountered.

How to Beat the 5th Colossus in Shadow of the Colossus

Fall down into the water and then head to one of the platforms sitting on top of the water that look like giant stepping stones. From here fire an arrow at the perched colossus and it will come flying towards you. As it gets close, jump and grab hold of its wing. You're now onboard the flying beast.

Because Colossus 5 is flying the trickiest part of beating it is staying on its back. As Colossus 5 turns it will be dangerous to stand on, so hold on tight and wait for you moment to run to the next weak spot or strike a blow with your sword.

There are three weak spots to target on Colossus 5: one on each wing and one at the end of its tail. You're going to be on a wing already, so tackle that one first, then take out the other two. As we said, there's nothing hard about Colossus 5 as long as you don't get thrown off while it's turning. If you get thrown off Colossus 5, simply repeat the initial steps to get back onboard.

Well done! You've defeated the 5th Colossus in Shadow of the Colossus on PS4. Head on to find out how to find and how to beat Colossus 6 in Shadow of the Colossus on PS4.
