Shadow of the Colossus Boon of the Nomad Trophy: How to Find the Barrel in the Hidden Cave

Shadow of the Colossus

The Shadow of the Colossus remake for the PlayStation 4 is incredible. Not only is it a faithful rebuild of one of the greatest video games ever made, it also has a few additional features that will satisfy those of us who have already been through this game several times.

For instance, there’s an Easter egg that references The Last Guardian, Team ICO’s most recent game. If you can find it, you’ll earn the Boon of the Nomad Trophy.

The reference is a barrel of the blue gooey stuff that Trico is so fond of in The Last Guardian. It’s hidden away in a secret cave.

Here’s the location of that cave on the game’s map:

It’s very easy to overlook, so we took a video of it’s exact location. You can see that below.

All you have to do to pop the Boon of the Nomad Trophy is just find this barrel. We did find this Trophy to be a bit finicky, so if it doesn’t pop the first time, simply exit the cave and try again.

Good luck, fellow wanderer!
