With Fortnite Season 10 prepping to begin on August 1st, it appears that a major bot battle may be the opening event. Cattus, aka the Polar Peak Monster, has been seen lurking about in deep water with a piece of Polar Peak on its back lately. What giant robocat would be worth its salt without an appropriately-sized foe? Dataminers have uncovered who they think that might be: Doggus, a new giant robot under construction in the Pressure Plant vault.
Twitter FortTory has posted a number of datamined pieces of "evidence" that suggest an epic battle between Doggus and Cattus including a battle posters, dimensions of the new bot's leg and foot size.
ICYM: Anytime soon we will see this Left “Robot” feet showing ingame at Pressure Plant. This is the First Stage of the Robot so it will evolve more in the future. As you can see is the Robot feet as huge as the feet of the Creature. pic.twitter.com/6kQsZjoNbK— FortTory ?? - Fortnite Leaks & News (@FortTory) June 30, 2019

Around 1-2 hours ago, Epic released a AES key to decrypt a encrypted .pak file. The .pak file contains the left foot of a robot called "Doggus", and it's definitely related to the changes at Pressure Plant. pic.twitter.com/tMedQYU6oz— ShiinaBR - Fortnite Leaks (@ShiinaBR) June 30, 2019
It's likely that the build up to the confrontation will be coming soon. Epic Creative Director Donald Mustard has changed his Twitter location to "Pressure Plant," something that he's often done as a harbinger of upcoming events in the past. According to VG247, this means "something big is about to go down".
Looks like the fur...er...metal will fly soon!
