As has been reported on by other outlets Fortnite: Battle Royale had an event earlier today Saturday, July 20th. The event was a fight between a mech robot and a huge monster in which the robot emerged as the victor.
This event was in line with Season 9’s story which has involved the emergence of a monster. The robot was built in preparation of the monster appearing (this event gives a Power Rangers feel to it). The monster which finally appeared today which prompted the mech to respond, during the brawl the mech lost an arm but despite it being down an arm ended up holding the monster off long enough to gain access to the Loot Lake Vault. Once it broke into the vault an orb appeared which gave the mech the strength to daze the monster.
With this extra time, the mech was able to pull a large sword out of the ground and stuck the sword through the monsters head. After defeating the monster the mech ended up flying away leaving behind not only the monster but the sword as well which are now new elements on the map.
