If you thought you were mercifully done with Fortnite Battle Royale’s meteor mystery following the debut of season four, then you were as mistaken as we were. As it turns out, there’s more to the meteor located in the newly christened Dusty Divot that meets the eye.

The game’s most recent patch not only introduced apples and epic Burst Assault Rifles, but it has seemingly made some telling cosmetic changes to the meteor that destroyed Dusty Depot.

Players noticed that the meteor now has holes dug out of it, revealing some sort of metal mechanism located inside the meteor. There are two popular theories following this discovery: There’s either a giant robot hidden in the meteor, or the meteor contains the skin reward for completing all Blockbuster challenges introduced over the course of season four.

Even if the skin reward theory is more likely (if not completely underwhelming), the giant robot theory does hold some merit. New secret areas that were introduced with season four’s launch seem to hint that some kind of battle between superheroes and supervillains is just on the horizon. Plus, a giant dinosaur footprint that was also introduced with the meteor could hint at a Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla–style face-off.

Developer Epic Games is no stranger to futzing with Fortnite Battle Royale’s structure and meta. A recent, limited-time crossover event featured Avengers: Infinity War‘s version of Thanos as a playable character in a Juggernaut-style twist on the game’s base mode. Tossing in two giant beasts who are duking it out while everyone else scrambles to survive would make for an incredible limited-time mode.

Players are already finding new, creative ways to have fun with the Dusty Divot crater. One Twitch streamer spent three hours trying to fill the crater and eventually succeeded, cementing what is maybe one of the greatest victories ever pulled off in a video game.

Fortnite is available for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and mobile.
