God of War 2 Walkthrough
Chapter 6: Atlas



Part 1 - The Face of Atlas



Head forward for a Green Chest and a Save Point.

Backtrack along the path and climb Atlas's face. You'll end up on an upper path where you'll reach a gap that you cannot jump. Fortunately for you, you violently ripped off Icarus's wings.

To glide, double jump and hold "X". You'll flap your wings a few times as you glide across the gap. For the next gap, you'll glide and then grab onto the edge of the platform. Pull yourself up and then glide from circular platform to circular platform. After the third platform, look down towards the lava to find another circular platform. From here, glide into the red lava tunnel.

You'll soon have to fight a Satyr Champion and some Fire Harpies near a Blue/Green Chest. After they're dead, go up to the stone block blocking the door. Pull it towards you, into the room, and place it along the left wall. From here, you can jump to an upper alcove with a Red Chest and a Chest with a Phoenix Feather.

Hop back down and go to the far side of the block. Pull it through the doorway (if you push it through you'll be stuck). Once the block is through the doorway, use it to get to the upper path and use the Green Chest if necessary.

Follow the path and glide off the ledge to the ground below. Here, you'll meet up with a Stone Minotaur.

The Stone Minotaur himself is no different than others that you've faced, however, the ground that you're on is a bit shaky. The platform is riding on lava. After a few minutes of fighting the Minotaur, he will become angry and pound the ground. This will send out a few orbs and will also cause the back wall to crumble, thus revealing a climbing wall.

Run toward the climbing wall and glide to it. Now on the wall, the Minotaur will begin to throw rocks at you, so use "X" to dash left or right to avoid them. After avoiding a good number of them, the platform will rise back up.

Hop off of the wall and continue to fight. When he's defeated, he'll turn into a small boulder. Slide the boulder underneath the tunnel above and then use it to jump up to the tunnel.

It was at this point that we upgraded the Head of Euryale to level 2.

Go forward and you'll come to ledge overlooking a lava pool. Although the path continues across from you, go ahead and glide down to the small platform on the left where you'll find a Red Chest and a Chest with a Phoenix Feather.

From this platform fly to the right and you'll see a platform with an entrance into the next lava cave area.

On the left, you'll find a Save Point and Green Chest. From this platform, attack the wall where you see a boulder being held in by some vines. This will release the boulder which creates a small platform for you to the right. Jump toward it and then onto it.

Part 2 - Inside Atlas



You'll see the covered egg structure blocking next to you. Attack the egg structure to destroy it, which will cause you, and the platform, to float along the lava river. Just before you float over the edge, you'll see a Grapple Point above you. Jump to it and then grapple and glide over to the next tunnel.

In this new tunnel, you'll see a black rock on the path. Attack it to reveal steam vent. You can use steam vents along with your Icarus Wings to gain altitude. Before you use the steam vent, hop down into the pit below and attack the back left wall to reveal an alcove with a Gorgon Eye.

Return to the steam vent, stand on it, and then double jump and glide to the next room.

This room is filled with Firebug hives and, therefore, Firebugs. Across from where you entered you'll find some shiny rocks. Attack the shiny rocks until they break, thus revealing a climbing wall. Before you can climb, however, you'll need to destroy all of the hives by attacking them. Otherwise, the bugs will knock you off while you're climbing.

Once the hives are destroyed, climb the wall to the ceiling and make your way to the Blue Chest and Green Chest. From this platform, glide across to another climbing wall. Climb up and then work you way along the ceiling until you get above the corner platform. Drop down to the platform and then glide to the nearby tunnel opening.

Head into this small room with a nice view of the side of Atlas's face. Stay on the left of this room and jump straight up to hang from the ceiling. Make your way along the ceiling path fighting Undead and breaking stalactites which are blocking your path. At the end of the path, break the stalactite and it'll reveal a shaft you can climb up. Do so and pull yourself up.

Follow this tunnel around the corner to the circular platform hanging from the chain. Step onto it to lower the platform. This will position you so that you can jump to another climbing wall. Make you way down and then forward along the ceiling.

Soon, you'll notice that you are above the lava pool where you were earlier. There is a cracked egg formation below and in front of you which you need to destroy by hitting stalactites to make them fall into the egg structure. Hit the two stalactites, they'll fall, and will create a steam vent from that egg structure.

Continue along the ceiling until you get to the end, drop down, and then glide over to the Save Point and Save.

Jump to the middle platform and then jump and glide over the steam vent you just created. This will send up aloft just enough to land on the upper platform overlooking a series of circular platforms hanging from chains.

Glide to the first one, and then to the second one, below and to the left. On this platform you'll find a crank. Begin to use the crank to trigger many Firebugs and Scythe Undead. After the enemies have been dealt with, turn the crank to raise the platform.

When it will go no higher, glide to each of the next three swinging circular platforms hanging from chains. If you're having trouble reaching any of these three platforms, begin your double jump/glide when the platform is on the upswing, to give you more altitude.

On the third platform, you'll see a horizontal chain between it and Atlas. Jump up to the chain and you'll zip across the chasm and end up at a Save Point.

Part 3 - Climbing Atlas



Open the Green Chest and Red Chest. Nearby is a climbing wall. Climb up the wall, jump across the lava flow, and continue up, breaking rocks blocking your way and attacking the Undead. At the top, you'll end up hanging from the ceiling.

From this position you'll see three Grapple Points. Grapple to each one and then to another climbing wall. Climb up the wall and then push away from the wall (push down) and double jump/glide across to the path. Jump the next gap in the path and you'll get to a little puzzle.

This puzzle consists of two rocks that you can push and an upper path that you can't reach. You need to get one of the rocks underneath the ledge of the upper path to get up there.

To do this, you'll be utilizing the ramp on the left. Place one rock, on the ground level, at the left side of the ramp. Push the other rock up the ramp and then on to the top of the other rock. You now have a double-stacked rock.

Push this double-stacked rock to the ledge on the right, jump up onto the ledge, and pull the upper rock across so that it rests underneath the ledge that you need to get up. Make your way up to the upper path.

From here you'll see a Green Chest in front of you. Before you head that direction, turn around and look for the climbing wall to the left. Double jump/glide to it and work your way to the left where you'll find a Chest with a Gorgon Eye (health upgrade) on a platform.

Head back up to the upper path, use the aforementioned Green Chest if necessary, and climb the wall at the end of the path. You'll soon reach a narrow vertical section of wall with a lava flow, well, flowing down the middle. As boulders drop from above, jump back and forth between the two walls to avoid damage. In this manner, work your way up.

At the top, make your way left to another narrow section of wall and hold "R1" to do a wall grind, quickly making your way down. Immediately move to the left so as not to be crushed by a multitude of boulders.

Hmm, this looks familiar. Yes, again, you'll have to make your way up, jumping back and forth avoiding boulders. You'll want to be on the left side as you get to the top so that you can climb over the ledge and onto a platform with a huge chain.

Jump and attack the chain repeatedly until it breaks, thus removing Atlas's hand from the shaft you came through.

Atlas then pinches you. Alternate pressing "L1" and "R1" to free yourself from the various pinchings. At this point, you'll get a long cutscene after which Atlas will give you Atlas Quake.

Atlas Quake is your fourth and final magic skill. Use it like your other magic, with "L2". This attack creates seismic waves, doing damage and causing enemies to fall.

You'll now get a chance to practice this on the various Undead who appear. After they're destroyed, Atlas will raise you up through the earth and you'll be on your way to the Sisters of Fate, once again.

Part 4 - Crossing the Great Chasm



Thanks to Atlas, you are now in the middle of the Great Chasm. Glide on over to the Save Point and Save. Work your way across to the next few platforms, and you'll soon reach a pillar that is higher than you. Glide to it and you'll stick to the climbing wall. Climb up to the top and then double jump/glide backwards to the pillar behind you. From here, glide to the pillar you were just hanging from and open the Green Chest if necessary.

From here, glide to the road sticking out from the Palace of the Fates.
