Cortez Can't Jump! is a TimeSplitters Future Perfect Challenge. It involves shooting metal balls into hoops along an elevator course while the elevator moves downwards using your Temporal Uplink.

The player is given 25 balls to complete the challenge, although it is possible to catch balls and reuse them after taking a shot.

Briefing Edit

Some day this war's gonna end, son... If that's so, then Cortez really ought to get looking into some future perfect career alternatives. He says there can't be that much difference shooting guns and shooting hoops. Well, let's see if he's right!

Strategy Edit

Don't waste all of the balls. Once a ball is thrown, try to catch it again with the temporal uplink. When you are below a hoop, try shooting upwards at it. Sometimes it will be easier to shoot at the vertical hoops.

When you are above the horizontal hoops, you can bounce the balls off the wall and into the hoops. You can also shoot down at hoops below you and get points from above.

Using this you can get a gold.


  • The challenge's title is a reference to the film White Men Can't Jump.
  • The title is also a play on the fact that you can't jump in the game.
  • The description of the challenge title drops the subtitle of the game, namely "...some future perfect career alternatives."
