How do I beat the third colossus from Shadow of The Colossus in Time Attack hard2 mode?

  1. I know how to get onto the sword, but is there a way to get onto the Colossus without takeing the time to break his armor on the emblem in the middle of the area?

  2. Additional Details:
    I've been attempting the launch methods you mentioned, but cannot accomplish it consistantly. Could you provide more detail about timeing and positioning to launch from? Otherwise I know how to get onto the sword but not with enough time to beat the Hard Time Attack mode. I realy getting frustrated because I've already beat all the other Colossus in Hard Time Attack. Thanks for any help!

  3. Additional Details:
    Ok, I finally got the hang of the launch method to beat the 3rd Collossus in Hard Time Attack(HTA) mode. As I said before I had already beat all other Collusus in (HTA) mode. So I was confused when the item I received was the Queen's Sword. I was expecting to get flash arrows which I still don't have. Are they won the first time around? If so how come I don't have them?

Accepted Answer

  1. From the Colossus Help Topic on the message board:

    Normal method:

    When the fight starts, move close to the edge of the platform and stay there. Shoot him in the stomach with some arrows to piss him off. Now just stand there and wait for the colossus to get near you. It should lift up its arm for a downward stab attack, when you see this run between its legs. Keep running until you reach the hard stone disk in the center of the platform. The colossus will turn around and bring back its arm for a big swing. Run directly away from the colossus. The colossus will hit the hard stone disk, destroying its armor. Run to either side now, the colossus will come in for another long swing. This time its arm extension will be stuck in the dirt: use this time to run up onto it and from there onto the arm. Climb up the arm and onto the colossus back; get up and run when the surface is level enough. Run to the head; find the weak point; stab. Once that weak point is exhausted, run to the back of the colossus, you should be able to drop from the stone belt around the chest onto the platform at the waist. Run around to the front of the stomach, jump on the weak point, deliver the finishing stabs.

    Hard mode:

    In hard mode, Gaius has one extra weak point; it is on the back of the colossus left arm. It can be gotten to from the left side of the back.

    Alternate methods:

    1) Launch from the end of the sword to the head. Requires practice.

    2) Launch from the middle of the sword to the bracelet on the arm.

    3) Launch from the middle of the sword onto the stomach.

    Time attack:

    For both time attacks, all methods can be done. For both time attacks, sword launches of any sort will speed things up as you wont have to break the armor
