Even before his transformation, Cortez was a killing machine. His strength and machete quickly made him the unrivalled leader of the Berzerk clan. No one (living) really knows just what he was doing at the Motel on that fateful evening. But one thing's for sure - he was made to lead a small army of crazy fighters. So from there to creating one for himself wasn’t a big step to take...

After a Xantiax gas leak in the air ducts of the Red One Motel, all the staff and hotel guests were transformed into fearsome beings, possessed by a fury that can only be appeased by intense fighting. In fact, they would have ripped each other to pieces for time immortal if Cortez hadn't united them under a common cause: to find those responsible for their situation and make them pay!

    Cortez and Norman had agreed to let Vryer and Jaxx Ld try out the Xantiax Gas on Robb Cr in Room 13. He and Norman agreed to store the extra canisters in that room until one of them broke and accidently created the Berzerk clan. Luckily for him, the two Sentinels (Katja and Harvey) that were investigating this kept the secret since they believed that the rest of the Berzerk will eventually find out any way (that and they had a bigger case to worry about).

    Cortez. Berzerk. 8/8.

    A godly 8/8!
    If won a fight, 10 damage is done!
    1 of the 2 8/8's.

    Backslash... everyone hates it.
    5 stars.
    Obviously, some damage reducers and power reducers leave him dead.

    Overall: 8/10.
    Not really worth it if you think about it, mostly because it has Backslash. Get some berzerk with healing abilities, then it wouldn't be a problem.

    Well, for the sake of newbies, SOA is short for stop opponent abilities, which for your sake, is the one written next to the lightning sign (if its not a lightning sign, then its still quite close). SOB is short for stop opponent bonus, which is written just below the ability.

    Hope this helps smiley

    PLZ RATE UP SO NEWBIES CAN SEE THIS smileysmileysmileysmiley

  • I hope everyone knows that, but still for everyone's information,

    Cortez is based on the character Machete Cortez, from Robert Rodriguez's movie Machete and Machete Kills......

    The game isn't noobie friendly because everybody keeps buying these cards as soon as they can.
    I.E. you want the price to go down?
    Stop buying whatever awesome card the first chance you can, and hold onto your clintz.
    Vote green if you whatever.

    the only three situations in which cortez is better than graven:

    - for KOing
    - against SOA
    - in ELO when the red alien is banned

    for everything else, take graven

    Fun Fact:

    Adler does as much life gap as Cortez if not affect by SOA.

    Adler does more damage than Cortez if affected by SOA

    Adler is a common card, Cortez is a rare card.

    Go Adler!
