The long-awaited battle between Fortnite’s giant monster, Cattus, and a giant robot, Doggus, finally happened today, July 20. The dramatic battle was the only available mode — dubbed The Final Showdown — and players watched Cattus and Doggus appear from their respected corners to face each other to the death.

While Cattus attacked the vault, which was the place of last season’s big event, Doggus intervened by firing rockets at him. Cattus responded with what looks like to be a beam of acid but eventually, the two behemoths ended up tussling in the deep ocean. After a few brief seconds, Doggus reappeared from the sea but was immediately tackled by Cattus, losing an arm in the process. Doggus then freed itself and pulled some kind of power orb out of the vault, which gave him a huge power-up. Later the giant robot grabbed a giant sword from Mega Mall and killed Cattus, highlighting his victory with a dance and a salute, thus marking Fortnite’s end of season 9.

The build-up to the mega showdown started with a monster trapped in Polar Peak, where players could see its giant eye and hear its heartbeat. Cattus then broke free, stormed across the battle royale island and ending up in the sea, eventually showing signs that it made it ashore. Meanwhile, the drones around Pressure Plant started building a giant robot over the course of the season.
