Ghost Song: Elsom the Ogre Boss Guide

Ghost Song: Elsom the Ogre Boss Guide

It turns out we jumped the gun in  Ghost Song  again. Elsom the Ogre is supposed to be fought directly after  Henriette The Changed One , on the way back from Roslock Drift Gamma. We fought him on the first trip to the Junkpit. It’s a harder fight, but still doable. Whether you’re fighting him as intended or seeking to best him early, here is our  Ghost Song Boss Fight Guide for Elsom The Ogre .

Want a better weapon? Read our guide on how to get the Flowersong Blaster Module. 

Ghost Song: Elsom the Ogre Location

Elsom the Ogre can be found when returning from  Roslock Drift Gamma . Exiting the area through the Part Room will lead back to a vertical shaft you couldn’t climb previously. Climb to the top, and on the right side is a gap that leads to a Save Room and Level-Up Statue. Elsom is right next door. See below for a map of his exact location.

Players taking the alternate routes have to work a little harder. The vertical shaft that leads directly to the Junkpit from Lupoto is one route but leads to a forced fight with multiple big robot heads. The other way is to go straight up in the room after the  Hulking Fist  room. Shoot the metal wall-clinging grubs a couple of times to turn them into platforms to get up there.

Defeating Elsom the Ogre in Ghost Song

To beat Elsom the Ogre, players need to be patient and keep their distance. Then, wait for openings to attack. Having the proper weapons and modules will greatly aid you in your battle.

For an in-depth guide on his Elsom’s attacks and our suggested modules and weapons, keep reading.

Elsom the Ogre Attacks

The good news is that Elsom only has melee attacks. The problem is Elson’s swings outrange every melee weapon, so melee weapons are too risky to use here. The junked robots are slow and easy to destroy; watch for the visual cues of where they’re spawning to avoid cheap hits.

Elsom starts with 2 attacks: an overhead smash and a jumping overhead smash. The severed robot head they wield as a flail is enormous and sends a shockwave forward on impact. 

Ghost Song Elsom the Ogre

Both attacks can be countered by jumping out of the slowing muck covering the arena floor and  Phase Dashing  through Elsom’s hitbox. Shoot them in the back a couple times after landing, then move away before they return to their normal stance.

Ghost Song Modules for Elsom the Ogre

We’ve heard from other Players that the  Chill Crumbler  from  Six-Finger Woods  is very strong here. Testing against similar enemies showed good damage so we’re inclined to believe them. We also heard and confirmed that  Molly’s Tweak  (from talking to Molly each day) locks this weapon into its more powerful mode. This combination is great for the fight; Elsom is always trying to move into close range where this weapon shines.

For bold Players that came here early, the  Coburn Launcher  is the best choice. It deals good damage in the limited windows that Elsom is vulnerable. Players can also find  Fome The Blob  in Lupoto to get the  Blob Bloom  Blaster Module. The bloblings spawned by this weapon can continue to attack Elsom when the Player can’t. 

Towards the end of the fight, Elsom gets angry and shows a new attack: swinging their flail back and forth in a frenzy. Getting caught in this attack will pummel you; be ready to Phase Dash away. It’s not worth attacking during this move because the flail itself blocks shots. 

For Players of either sort, one Suit Module is key: the  Robotic Heart  from  Huttle Drop , the area leading to Junkpit. This grants Hyper-Armor after a Dash. With this, poorly-timed Dashes will still provide some protection.

Elsom the Ogre Rewards

Elsom drops the  Ogre Device  Suit Module when they are defeated. This grants a good boost to Vigor (increasing Max Health and Melee damage) and lets players charge their melee attacks for even more punch.

That was our guide on beating Elsom the Ogre in Ghost Song. We hope it helps with one of the game’s tougher fights.

Ghost Song guide — How to use the pebble

Andrew Farrell

Curious as to how to use the pebble you get in  Ghost Song ? It’s certainly a very mysterious item. Towards the end of the game, you’ll likely run into the “ghost” you’ve seen around and she gives you the mysterious item. It mentions a mountain and using it grants you “perception.” But if you don’t know what to do with that info, you’re likely not alone — it’s intentionally a bit obtuse.

How to use the pebble item in Ghost Song

After you get the pebble, you’ll want to head to the nearby mountain directly to the right of the Crash Site. You probably figured that out, but there’s more to it than that.

This only works if you do it on the mountain while you’re still in the Crash Site. If you’re in Ekman’s Crossing, you’ve gone too far. To put it simply, once you’ve walljumped to the top while in the Crash Site, that’s far enough. You can use the pebble now or at any time for this to work, so don’t fret if you’ve already used it. Hold down to shut your suit off while on the mountain and a weird effect will appear above Deadsuit. She’ll get whisked away to The Cut Machine where you’ll get to have another chat with the ghost lady who gave you the pebble to begin with.

The pebble is one of the most mysterious things about Ghost Song and, even after finishing this sequence, you’ll likely have even more questions that I’m not sure I have the answers to. From what I can gather, this section mostly exists solely for lore purposes and doesn’t appear to give you anything. But it has some important implications for the game’s overall narrative. There are still a lot of mysteries left, however, so you may as well keep exploring the world until you understand it all.

Ghost song review: where action and loss meet.

Ghost Song is an atmospheric Metroidvania title, filled with plenty of action and mystery against its haunting backdrop.

The genre of the Metroidvania is one that really benefited from the explosion of the indie gaming scene. While games within the Metroid and Castlevania franchise had once had a stranglehold on that particular gameplay loop, in the modern era titles like Hollow Knight are equally as important to players. Ghost Song is the latest game to try to tap into that kind of magic, from Old Moon and Humble Games.

Ghost Song is a 2D action adventure game set on an isolated moon named Lorian. The player takes on the role of a Deadsuit, awakening from a deep sleep to try and find some of the mysteries of what has happened and exactly what stories lie beneath the surface of this strange world. The player delves deep into caves of Lorian, finding strange and dangerous creatures as they discover the secrets of the moon, meet other inhabitants, and try to find a way out.

From a gameplay perspective, Ghost Song very much fits into the Metroidvania space . Over the course of the game, the player unlocks abilities and equipment to help them better navigate the world, opening up new pathways as the story progresses. It's something that will feel very natural to fans of Metroid games in particular, especially given the general atmosphere and setting of Ghost Song.

That's not to say that Ghost Song purely sticks to a Metroid template here, as it does expand things in different ways such as an equipment loadout system where the player needs to select what abilities they want to have. There is also an action RPG-esque level up system, where the Deadsuit can gain strengths in the ways that suits the player's style, such as improving melee, health, or ranged attacks. Given the versatility of enemies throughout the game, however, the decision to turn into a glass cannon build with one strength is perhaps not the best setup, which limits the impact on this RPG system overall.

As well as this, there are some elements of Ghost Song that perhaps feel more (whisper it) Soulslike in their format, although this is very much in structure rather than in minute-to-minute gameplay. A death in Ghost Song is not always something of frustration and failure, but instead an opportunity to dive into a specific route, suss out the lay of the land, and get vital experience - both in terms of in-game experience to level up and to genuinely gain more context and confidence for what lies ahead. It adds to the strong sense of exploration that Ghost Song has, as the player comes to try and understand the mazes of Lorian.

It's also a game world that the player will desperately want to explore, outside of their desire to simply complete the game. Old Moon has created an interesting setting in Lorian, with a mixture of decaying science fiction architecture similar to Vesper , bizarre local flora and fauna, and horrifying cosmic and body horror elements too. It's an intoxicating mix that gels well together, although comparisons to Zebes are unlikely to disappear any time soon given the similarities of setting and of gameplay.

Something that certainly helps the atmosphere of Ghost Song is its visual design. The locales are all lovingly brought to life, as are the character models, although the real star of the show is the color palette, that shifts between glowing pastels and far darker moments and making Ghost Song an overall evocative experience. It lacks the potency of some of its peers, such as the aforementioned Hollow Knight , Sundered , or The Messenger , but it's still an effective-looking game.

It is also worth briefly noting the Steam Deck functionality of Ghost Song for those who use the platform. Overall the game runs well on the device, with no slowdown and controls that map well, which is handy given how technical some of its combat can be. However, there are a couple of visual glitches to be found in the pre-release build at least, such as occasional block lines at the top and bottom of the screen in certain areas, although thankfully this is rare and easy to ignore.

Overall, Ghost Song is a very enjoyable addition to the Metroidvania subgenre. It maybe lacks a little bit of originality to help it stand out from its contemporaries in a rather crowded market, but the game does provide a very enjoyable experience. With an atmosphere and story that are haunting and interesting to explore, there are plenty of reasons to delve into the dangerous world of Ghost Song .

Positive Messages

The player sometimes has to resort to violence to survive. But there are also times when they can avoid conflict, though this can be trickier than just fighting.

Positive Role Models

The main character is trying to figure out who they, where they are, and what's going on. But in doing so, they're often given a choice of using violence or evasion to survive. Players are also rewarded for being observant.

Ease of Play

While the game's controls are simple, and will be familiar to players of similar games, they're not explained well. The game has two difficulty options -- "Original" and "Explorer" -- except that the former is really hard and the latter is, well, also hard.

Violence & Scariness

Players use guns to kill other beings, resulting in some blood splatter. It also has moody imagery and music designed to give this a freaky feeling and thus put you on edge.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Ghost Song is a downloadable third-person shooter for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Windows PCs. Players use guns to kill other things, resulting in some blood splatter. The game also uses dark imagery and moody music to create a tense vibe that's designed to unnerve and unsettle players. Otherwise, there's no inappropriate content to be found in the title. Players will find that this is a challenging title that isn't particularly easy, forcing a degree of skill to succeed.

What’s It About?

In Ghost Song, you seem to be a robot of some kind, or possibly a cyborg. Either way, you're lost on an alien world... or is it your world? Unsure of who you are, where you are, and why you're there, you start exploring, and find yourself under constant threat and often lost. An old school, side-scrolling shooter, but one that has updated graphics and some modern gameplay touches, this moody shooter will put you on edge as you try to survive this alien horror.

Is It Any Good?

While the basic gameplay is decidedly old school, this sci-fi third-person, side-scrolling shooter has some modern touches. In Ghost Song, you're a robot, or maybe a cyborg, who becomes reactivated on an alien world, but you know not which, when, or why. So you start exploring, only to find that amid all the caverns and platforms you have to navigate are some local residents who don't like you very much. Good thing you've got a gun for an arm, and legs that let you jump higher than you might expect, since there are tons of hazards to avoid, some of which are best done by doing just that: avoiding them. Even cooler, the atmospheric music are dark imagery give this a seriously freaky sci-fi vibe.

But while this shooter has you running and gunning like it's the mid-'80s and you're in an arcade -- or just running; some enemies are best avoided -- it does have some interesting modern touches. By killing enemies, you earn points you can use to improve your weapons, restore your health (though you do this in many other ways), or give yourself even more potential health. It's just too bad you don't get this currency more often. But then, sparseness seems to be an underlying theme in this game. Not only can it be really tough, but the checkpoints you go back to when you die are really, really spread out. And no, the supposedly easier mode isn't easy. Or even that much easier. Still, if you enjoy side-scrolling sci-fi shooters that don't go easy on you, Ghost Song will be a welcome challenge.

Talk to Your Kids About ...

Families can talk about violence in video games . Is the impact of the violence in Ghost Song affected by the fact that you kill a lot of beings that may be people or robots? Is killing indiscriminately okay? What if it's a matter of kill or be killed?

Ghost Song uses dark imagery and atmospheric music to put you on edge, but does this add to the game, make it less fun, or does it have no effect on you? Why do you think people like being scared?
