Orthopox assigned Crypto to bring him this meteor to have as a "pet rock" like any geek would. Since he is the only one who makes the upgrades to his equipment, Crypto complies with this. He found it guarded by Mobsters and easily takes care of them.
Crypto and Pox discover that the properties inside the meteor make it immune to PK or the Saucer's Abducto Beam. Pox wants to study its properties. Because of its immunity, the player had to take an obscene amount of time and smash half of Paradiso to bring it back to him.
