However during the his first heist, Rattler encounters Inferno and Steel Sterling after he had killed the guard using his poison syringes. Rattler then attacked Steel and Inferno comes to his partner's aid. Unfortunately, Inferno was poisoned, but Steel rushes him to get medical help. Rattler then steals fur coats and then kills his henchmen with his snake venom.

His next crime was to tunnel under the federal reserve, but Inferno and Steel knock him cold and turn him into the authorities.
