The mysterious rift in Tomato Town has finally opened up and disappeared, leaving a stone Tomato Head behind where the original head used to be.
The strange stone version of the head is a lot smaller than the previous, and it is unclear what the significance is, or if it is simply a light touch from Epic Games.
The rift in Tomato Town was only spotted recently, and fans immediately began to speculate that it signalled the return of the Tomato Man mascot himself, but those fans will be disappointed.
Video footage courtesy of u/Gavine0515 shows the rift dropping the new stone head.
This is the first rift seen that is ‘returning’ map items that were removed previously at the end of season 4.
Season 5 has left these rifts dotted around various areas on the maps, and so it is possible that lots of map items from the previous season will return – but perhaps in stone form.
Epic Games are seemingly infinitely creative with remoulding the Fortnite Battle Royale map regularly to keep it fresh, especially for players who are putting countless hours into the game.

Only three weeks remain in Season 5, so this Stone Tomato Head could be a clue towards the build up for Season 6, but it is impossible to know at this early stage.
