Colossus is a big, strong ass dude but... frankly it seems like he gets beaten up a lot? Maybe not though.
 
I'm trying to find out what are Colossus's biggest weakpoints.. I'm guessing the biggest is he's completely vulnerable to telepathic attacks. Secondly, he's absolutely SCREWED if he faces off against Magneto or Polaris... Finally, steel isn't THAT durable... so anyone with Adamantium (Cyber, Sabretooth, Wolverine) or Vibranium (Warpath's knives) can totally cut him up...

I dunno. Honestly it seems like Colossus is WAY overrated.
 
Hell, a weak telekinetic could just hoist him up into the air and hold them there laughing...
He's strong as hell, yet still nowhere near Hulk/Juggernaut..
Warpath with Vibranium could cut him right up..
Telepaths can have their way with him..

Hes not totally immune to telepathy but in his metallic form he is more resistant to it. 
 
Magnetism is his BIGGESt weakness and being that their only a few UBER strong magnetism users hes got no real fears. 
 
But besides that his one true weakness is his heart, many times he will act upon his heart or react to something with his heart. 
 
Look at when kitty died, he was moppy and bitchy so he was of no use. And when his sister died of the legacy virus he was very emotional and stayed for quite sometime, even turning into a Alcoloyte because of her death and not seeing a reason to live anymore.

Exactly. I'd feel the same for my sister. But it can be a serious weakness if a villain decides to use it against him.

Yep which even though it was insanely sad i think killing Illyanna off first time and Kitty was a great idea. (plus kitty was f@#king annoying nowadays)

Juggernaut I'll give ya but Hulk I beg to differ. As a teenager Colossus was shown to be able to defeat a villain that one shot Thing and even draw with Ben in armwrestling remember he's suppose to be as strong as hulk though I think Ben is really overrated myself. He was even able to OK hulk in the X-Men Vs Hulk comic which is suppose to be somewhere around that time as well. Green Scar Hulk even admits Colossus would have been a challenge (or possibly defeated) for his past incarnations.
 
As for any weaknesses..... in Ultimate Arcade used sonics to force him to revert to flesh form the same might be try  for his 616 counterpart.
 
I didn't know acids worked on him though, don't remember that being used and working dude is able to withstand Adamantium so thats a little surprising.

I know in the Ultimate universe Wolverine opened him up with his claws but in the 616 has that ever happened? 
 
His skin is always described as "organic steel" which I've always thought has different properties to regular steel.
 
And yeah his biggest weakness is that he cares.

His biggest weakness besides magnetic attacks, I think, is that he is a  pacifist, he doesn't like to fight.

I always heard his metal form was made of Osmium, and way denser than steel.

What comic was it discrubed as Osmium? I guess that would be the technical name for Organic Steel.

Colossus has never really been at the high end of strength or durability.  He's always been behind guys like Hulk or Juggernaut.  I think he was designed that way on purpose.  Initially, none of the X-Men or the Giant-Size X-Men were particularly powerful.  Of that group, only Storm, Jean, and Iceman have really seen big boosts in the last 30 years.

Part of why it's such a weakness for him, he blames himself for everything that has happened to her. Now that she's back, he doesn't want to lose her again, but things keep happening and it's killing him.

I would say Collosus's biggest weakness over the years has been unimaginative writing. For how powerful and formidable he is more often than not he is written as a light weight.  
Capable of lifting tons and tons and tons, nearly invulnerable to physical attack, self sustained in metal form no need for food or air even.........with that powerset, you would think he would be a bigger factor.....but it seems he is consistently demoted to a catapult for Wolverine. 
 
He is definitely slept on.

In 616 its never been shown to happen to him. Logan has attacked him a few times once in a mind controlled full on rage mode and all it did was send up sparks but Logan's never actually cut him up or scratched him with his claws to date. In Ultimate, they originally had it the very same way but when the banshee story arc came up (an utterly crappy story by the way) Logan can magically slices him open this time.

I agree.  The closest I've seen is Mimic getting shredded while using Colossus's power, and that's only because he uses others powers at 1/2 strength.  Osmium is about the densest stuff there is, Logans claws shouldn't be able to slice it.

I recall in X-Men: Evolution, when Colossus was serving as one of Magneto's acolytes, Magneto threatened him with his magnetism: lifting him up in the air to show him who's boss. But then something surprised me, something everyone has probably thought of but just doesn't happen when the situation presents itself. Colossus assumed his normal physique and quickly recovered, picked Magneto up by the throat and proceeded to slam him the master of magnetism into the nearby wall.

i disagree. his biggest weakness is vibranium, the same stuff that the  black panther's claws are made of. all metal in the marvel universe is affected by it, including colossus's skin, because it separates the individual molecules of the metal. he can always change back into his normal form, but then he wouldn't be able to use his superhuman strength. faced with someone using a vibranium weapon like the black panther, colossus can either go without his powers or lose a few body parts.

I'm not sure if creepy obsession would be the correct word. Colossus' family had died, his brother is no where to be found, Illyana came back to his life and to him, she's the only family he has left on earth. After all the hardships he went through, he really needs a break.

His greatest weakness is his "little snowflake" (I think he is the only one who still believes that Magik isn't completely twisted and evil).
