How to Beat the Fifteenth Colossus in Shadow of the Colossus PS4
Most of the colossi battles in Shadow of the Colossus PS4 has a trick to them, requiring you to solve some kind of puzzle before you can beat the boss. The later battles get especially difficult with more dangerous colossi, and even more tricks to pull off. Argus is the fifteenth colossus in the game, and it’s certainly a bit tricky to overcome.
First off, you should know that Argus, the fifteenth colossus, is pretty aggressive compared to most of the other colossi, and it comes equipped with a sword. Look at the sides of the arena you fight Argus in, you’ll notice a couple platforms on each side that look like they’re just out of your reach. Jump on the platform just below one of these, and lure Argus over with arrows. What you need to do is get Argus to stomp on the platform you’re on, which will raise up one side and let you jump over to the other platform just out of your reach.
Run up the stairs to a columned section, and start peppering the fifteenth colossus with arrows. You need the colossus to hit this area with his sword, causing stone blocks to drop down. Once they do, jump on the blocks and use them to climb up to the next area, then jump over to the steps leading further up. Keep running up and forward and you’ll see a bridge. Run onto the bridge and wait for Argus to start coming over, then run back to the side of the bridge. The fifteenth colossus will smash the bridge with his sword, giving you an opening to jump on top of him. Wait on the edge of the broken bridge until Argus comes over, then leap onto his head and grab hold.
The first sigil is on Argus’ head, but the fifteenth colossus will shake violently whenever you’re on its head. You’ll need to grab on and find a chance when you can, while jumping to its back to recover your grip meter. Now comes the trickier part, the second sigil is on Argus’ right hand, underneath his sword. First off, climb down the colossus’s right arm to the little indentation in the armor, where you’ll notice a black cloud. Stab your sword in and this will make Argus drop his sword. Now you need to jump off of the colossus and back onto the ground.
Shoot his right hand, then dodge out of the way when he slams it on the ground trying to crush you. You’ll need to quickly jump onto the inside of his hand and grip it, then pull out your sword. At this point you only need one or two stabs on the sigil to take the fifteenth colossus down.
The fifteenth colossus is one of the tougher ones in Shadow of the Colossus, so you may have to repeat steps a couple of times to actually bring him down. Stick with it though, and you’ll be one step closer to completing your journey.
