Rikers are escaped convicts from the Rikers Island prison.
Rikers can be encountered inside and outside Dark Zones.
A destructive criminal faction that has surfaced as a result of an organized prison break from Riker's Island. The Rikers faction fill the power vacuum left by retreating JTF and now rule like kings in a lawless land. Their first objective: enact revenge on authorities and kill everyone with a uniform, especially the JTF.
With many members from local New York gangs, their ranks quickly grew as they drew in more local followers. Their rapid growth has led to occasional in-fighting and rivalry. This, however, is kept at bay by LaRae Bennett, known as much for her ruthlessness as her ability to plan, organize, and lead. Bennett's powerful leadership over her members shows that the Rikers Gang is not to be trifled with.
