4. The Lair of the Titan
Use light attacks to attack the Harpies that crowd around Pegasus while flying
around the cavern. Eventually the Titan will grab Pegasus and trap him under
Attack the Harpy enemies that fly toward Kratos then drop down to the platform
below with the --GREEN CHEST--. Drop off the side that the camera refuses to
show and climb down the wall. Drop down to the platform with the --RED CHEST--
and --UNMARKED CHEST--. The unmarked chest contains a ++GORGON EYE (2/?)++.
Work your way back up to the rock ledge with the Titan's fingers and attack the
middle finger to make it move back toward the wall and grant you access to the
area ahead. Grab onto the rough wall and climb downward (use R1 to slide).
Beast-legged Sentries will appear on the wall at the bottom. Take some time to
finish them off then leap over to the side of the rock wall across the gap
(hold toward the wall then press X).
Climb up toward the rough section of the ceiling above to make Kratos grab onto
the ceiling then climb to the right. You can still use the X button to move
faster even while climbing on the ceiling. Attack the Sentries then keep
pulling yourself across. Keep climbing along the rough wall and transitioning
yourself appropriately to reach the floor below and gain access to a save
Move down the tunnel ahead and some Harpies and a Minotaur will attack at the
first turn. The Minotaurs are the exact same as they were in the first game.
Use heavy attacks to knock them down then wail on them while they lie helpless
on the ground. If one of them every starts to block then stop attacking him
and wait for a while since he will only deflect your attack and counter at that
point. Executing their finishing kill will always give you some green orbs so
keep that in mind. Open the --GREEN CHEST-- to the side if needed then
continue further into the cave.
Run over and open the --RED CHEST-- up ahead then break the cage suspended by
the rope. Use the rope to slide down to the next area. The shiny hook to the
side of the rope can be used to get back across. Run further into the cave to
reach the exit.
Snowy Mountain Ledge
The camera will zoom around the outside area to show you all that lies in wait
up ahead. Immediately break the wood towers to the side to quickly defeat the
Archers. Ignore the Minotaur that appears and keep attacking the towers then
deal with the Minotaur. Climb up the ledge on the side of the rock wall then
lean up against the wall of the narrow ledge and move across to the other side
then hop up to the area above. You'll find a --GREEN CHEST-- and a --RED
CHEST-- at the top. Slide down the chain up ahead.
What in the world is that bird doing in the background? Walk up the arm of the
Titan's hand and see for yourself. Wow. Attack Prometheus afterward until he
falls from the Titan's finger and hangs in the air above the fire. Jump to the
chain near the Titan's pinky then slide down it. Sadly, you can't finish off
the mortal Titan like he desires for the moment so walk to the other side. The
camera will zoom to show your next destination.
Don't climb the platforms just yet since there is nothing up there to be done.
Walk around the far side of the mountain wall and grab onto the rough portion
of the wall and climb down to the area below. You'll need to fight off a few
Sentries along the wall and on the bottom rock platform. Find the
--RED CHEST-- and the save point at the bottom after the coast is clear.
Continue across the current ledge and more Sentries will attack. You can't
swing across the broken bridge to the side just yet. Open the --UNMARKED
CHEST-- against the far mountain wall to receive another ++GORGON EYE (3/?)++.
Climb the rough wall on the side of the mountain. You'll need to leap above
the gap in the wall to continue climbing. A few Sentries will climb down the
wall and attack. Enter the Titan's Cave at the top.
While running down the tunnel, you'll notice a --GREEN CHEST-- and a --RED
CHEST-- along the way. Grapple to the stalactite at the end of the tunnel and
use it to swing across to the platform on the other side. You'll notice a
chest behind some bars on the other side. To open it, move to the right and
find the chain that extends back to the other side that you just came from.
Sliding across this chain will release the bars that guard the chest on the
other side for a few seconds. Quickly grapple back across and open the
--UNMARKED CHEST-- to receive your first ++PHOENIX FEATHER (1/?)++.
Continue further into the cave on your current side. After jumping up a rock
platform a Gorgon will appear. Be ready to roll to the side to avoid her swift
attacks every time that she dodges an attack and roll constantly whenever she
performs her stare to avoid being turned to stone. Once you start to attack
her, she will usually fall prey to the rest of the combo, but watch for her to
dodge to the side and be ready to roll away from her counter attack. Perform
the button tap kill when the icon appear and rotate the left analog in the
directions shown to tear her head off. Two more Gorgons will appear after the
first dies. A group of Harpies will join the battle eventually. Use the
Gorgon's stares to your advantage and make them stare at the Harpies during
their Gorgon gaze for some very quick deaths.
Find the shimmering rock structure near the gap and attack it to reveal a new
path. A Titan's voice will be heard as you make your way to the
--GREEN CHEST--, --RED CHEST--, and save point up ahead. The camera angle will
show the Titan known as Typhon in the background.
Walk toward Typhon's head and the camera will zoom in on his shimmering eye.
He will try to knock Kratos off of the column by blowing air toward him. If
you ever fall then quickly tap the X button for Kratos to grab onto the side
then pull yourself up when the Titan stops blowing. Keep moving to the left
side and take shelter behind the rock columns to avoid being blown off into the
pit below. Harpies will ambush you once the first rock pillar is reached.
Jump and attack them or grab them to keep Kratos behind the rock column. Run
across the ledge and seek shelter behind the two very small rocks. More
Harpies will attack but they will fly lower this time, so try to limit your
attacks to grabs. Run behind the tall rock and fight off the remaining
Harpies. Continue along the path ahead, but be sure to look out for Typhon's
When you reach the big rock platform, Typhon will threaten Kratos again.
Locate the shimmering rock on the right side and attack it to make it crack.
Walk over to the rock and grab it then lift with O button taps as the icon
appears to make a bridge leading up to Typhon's head. Run up the path when he
stops blowing and he will start to talk again. Press the R1 button to start a
brutal sequence in which Kratos will receive **TYPHON'S BANE**. Don't try to
run when he starts blowing again (the game won't let you anyway). Hold down
the L2 button to aim with Typhon's Bane. The bow will automatically target
Typhon's other eye. Shoot his eye with the  button to finish him off.
Run back across the rock bridge when he is blinded. The rock bridge will fall
and several Sentries will attack. A few archers will appear on the rock
platforms in the background as well. Use Typhon's Bane to target the Archers
and shoot them (use the right analog to switch targets).
Don't bother with the path on the right just yet, walk down the path that the
camera angle is slightly hiding by moving against the camera. You'll notice a
big bonfire on the other side with two chests near it covered with ice.
Several Sentries will attack at this point and they will keep appearing which
is a good thing since you will need them. Grab a Sentry with the O button and
tap the  button to slam him against the ground and toss him into the fire.
The fire will be automatically targeted once a Sentry is grabbed. After five
Sentries have been tossed into the fire, the ice on the four chests will melt
and you will be free to open them. There are --3 RED CHESTS-- and an
--UNMARKED CHEST-- containing another ++PHOENIX FEATHER (2/?)++
Run back across the platform that Typhon is filling full of hot air. Walk over
to the right wooden portion that is overlooking a gap. Shoot at the steel
crate covering the grapple point of the first shiny stalactite with Typhon's
Bane then shoot at the archers on the other side. Grapple to the first
stalactite then jump and grapple to the rest to get back across to the other
side. Break all the rocks on the other side for a fairly good red orb boost
then save your game at the save point nearby. Run all the way back outside.
Remember to slide along the chain to cross the gap. Typhon will threaten
Kratos once again upon leaving the cave. A --BLUE CHEST-- has now appeared at
the beginning of the cave if you need a refill on magic.
Snowy Mountain Ledge
While standing at the entrance of the cave, you need to shoot the cage that is
around the grapple point on the left side with Typhon's Bane to continue
onward, but first, climb back down the wall on the right. Drop to the bottom
and walk over to the broken bridge. Shoot the cage around the grapple point
with Typhon's Bane then swing across to the other side and open the --UNMARKED
CHEST-- for a ++GORGON'S EYE (4/?) and open the --RED CHEST--.
Climb back to the top and use the grapple point to return to the area next to
Prometheus. Open the --GREEN CHEST-- to the side if needed then target the
cage up above and shoot it with Typhon's Bane to make a wooden plank fall.
Climb the rope then jump to the ledge along the right side. Jump up the rock
platforms then swing down the chain to land on the rock arm next to Prometheus.
Slide down the chain on the rock hand's pinky then target the chain holding
Prometheus and shoot it with Typhon's Bane until Prometheus falls.
Kratos will gain the **RAGE OF THE TITANS** once Prometheus is freed from his
torment. The area will seal off and Minotaurs and Sentries will appear. Use
the Rage of the Titans (R3 + L3) to quickly defeat most of the enemies. Unlike
Rage of the Gods from the first game, Rage of Titans does not need a full
charge to activate and it can be turned off by tapping R3 + L3. If you decide
to deliver a finishing blow via the O button then always remember to turn off
Rage of the Titans so the extra energy is not wasted. The Rage meter for Rage
of the Titans will replenish as you attack enemies or from consuming yellow
orbs from your enemies.
Run all the way back over to the platform where you shot the cage to release
the plank and climb that rope again. This will take you back to the platform
where you slid down the chain to get to Prometheus. Locate the chain that
extends downward right next to the chain that you slid across and jump to it.
Climb downward and jump into the cave below and open the --2 RED CHESTS-- and
--UNMARKED CHEST-- containing a ++GORGON EYE++ (5/?). Climb back up the chain
then jump back to the platform. Jump to the rough wall against the side of the
mountain and climb along it then jump to the next section and climb down to the
platform below. A --RED CHEST-- and --2 UNMARKED CHEST-- will be lying in an
alcove. The middle chest contains a ++PHOENIX FEATHER (3/?)++. Make your way
back across to the platform with the chain extending toward the rock hand.
Climb along the chain and fight off the Sentries that climb toward you. Use 
attacks to stun them then grab them with a O button grab. Open the --GREEN
CHEST-- on the other side if needed then jump down to the area below. Open the
yellow chest to the side of the cave entrance to replenish your Rage of the
Titans meter then activate the Rage of the Titans and hit the door with the
insignia to destroy it.
The Hand Cavern
Fight off the Sentries as they run up to you then grapple back across to the
other side of the gap. Open the --BLUE CHEST-- if needed and continue onward.
Defeat the next set of Sentries that appear then save your game before
continuing onward. Climb back across the wall. A few Sentries will impede
your progress naturally. Climb back up to the platform where the hand still
traps Pegasus. Use the Rage of the Titans and attack each finger to make the
hand move out of the way and free Pegasus. Attack the fingers normally to
build up the Rage of Titans meter if it runs out. Walk over to Pegasus and get
on top of him to leave this area.
