The Division Wiki
The Division Wiki
Escaped prisoners from Riker's Island, these hardened criminals are led by the dangerous Larae Barrett. They take what they want from the wreckage of Manhattan, determined to live like kings before the virus takes it toll. With no love for the JTF and no mercy for anyone they come across, they rule parts of Manhattan through blood and fear.

When the Green Poison outbreak disrupted public services in New York City, a temporary citywide power outage engulfed all five boroughs, including the notorious prison complex on Rikers Island. Taking advantage of the blackout, inmates overpowered the guards and a mass breakout sent dozens of dangerous felons pouring into Queens then over the East River bridges into Manhattan. Ironically, shortly after their arrival, the escapees found themselves essentially imprisoned on another island, this time by the CERA quarantine of the borough.

One of the most intimidating prisoners, Larae Barrett, organized the convicts into a gang she called the Rikers. Trapped in the Manhattan anarchy, this crew of hardened criminals viewed the city as a new Wild West where they could take whatever they wanted, including revenge on the law enforcement elements that put them in jail. Led by Barrett, the Rikers quickly filled the power vacuum left by the JTF withdrawal from the streets, seizing control of entire neighborhoods ruling like urban warlords.

The gang had a primary objective: Kill everyone in a uniform, especially the New York City Police, which had been folded into the Joint Task Force. Video recovered from police vehicle dashcams and other surveillance sources showed Rikers committing terrible atrocities law enforcement personnel. The gang stripped the corpses of murdered police officers and donned the uniforms themselves, crossing out the police insignia's embroidered on them with a white cross of paint.

Since many Rikers Island inmates belonged to local New York gangs, prison gang's ranks grew quickly as attracted more local followers. The growth led to occasional infighting, but Larae Barrett's iron-fisted leadership helped keep clan rivalries at bay. Known as much for her ruthlessness as her ability to plan, organize and lead, Barrett proved to be a formidable adversary for Division cells.

After the death of Larae Barrett and all of her lieutenants, the Rikers are scattered and had to retreat underground to avoid prosecution from the JTF.

In the Resistance of West Side Pier, the Rikers have formed an uneasy but common alliance with the surviving hostile factions to make a stand against The Division and JTF while hunting down Aaron Keener.

During the campaign of Warlords of New York, the Rikers have resurfaced with James Dragov rallying them under one banner. With the death of Dragov and the loss of Wall Street, the Rikers have once again scattered over lower Manhattan.

Intelligence Brief

This world is our playground now, and no one's here to stop us. We got outta Riker's jail. And we ain't over going back in that cage. It's all ours now. We're the new kings of these streets.


A destructive criminal faction that has surfaced as a result of an organized prison break from Riker's Island. The Rikers faction fills the power vacuum left by the retreating Joint Task Force and now rules like lords in a lawless land. Their first objective: exact revenge on authorities - kill anyone in uniform, especially the JTF, NYPD and FDNY. A video recovered from a dashcam of a police vehicle shows them throwing a police officer's body on a patrol vehicle, then surrounding and murdering the occupants. Another video recovered shows that they attacked three First Wave Division agents, then they move to the subway where they are killed off. A third video shows that their leader, Barrett, executes one of the Rikers over an authority dispute and further makes an example of him by slashing his throat open.

JTF personnel has found the bodies of their comrades evidencing extreme brutality; some hanged from their legs, some left for dead in supermarket trolleys, still others with weapons still buried in their skulls. They are known to wear the uniforms and armor of their victims, either to disguise themselves, provide environmental protection or both. Rikers also like to taunt their prisoners; demanding amusement and entertainment at gunpoint, or turning them loose to be hunted down for sport.

After the death of Larae Barrett, if listening to the Riker audio log in the Underground, the Rikers are now aware of the Division's identity, and also express hate that they had to retreat from the classy and rich apartments they took over above ground to the diseased and filthy conditions of the underground. Shown in the first mission of the Underground, the Rikers are either unaware of the first waves treason as the leader of the Rikers claims the mysterious speaker "smells like Division", though still accepts her offer of weapons in return for attacking the Quarantine Center.

By Clear Sky, the Rikers are itching for payback against The Division for the losses suffered, with their leader in the Incursion, J.T. Falk (Slider), expressing enjoyment that the player(s) have "arrived to the party."

The Rikers also launched a massive attack on the news agency, causing news and information to be cut off, as well as take JTF hostages, who are treated worse than the dead. The Rikers were also somehow able to acquire an LMB missile launcher to shoot down any incoming Division ospreys coming from the Dark Zone.

James Dragov took over leadership after being convinced by Duchess to join their side. From there, they managed to gain a foothold. Not long after, they migrated to Lower Manhattan and took over Wall Street as their new HQ in Financial District and other areas in the Civic Center, terrorizing civilians and militias alike.

However, with Dragov's death and the loss of Keener's supplies in addition to losing the Federal Reserve and the means to produce ammunition, the Rikers are weakened once again and find themselves in internal conflict just like before.

However, weeks later, a group of Rikers came in contact with Saturn and join up with her. However, they were killed by The Division agents looking for Saturn.

However, weeks later, Luna located a large group of Rikers and recruited for her purpose. The Rikers with her were either unknowingly helping a bioterrorist or knew they were helping one and went along it for the power of the aftermath of the chaos.

Even more, Shade, an Rogue Division agent, recruited several Rikers and send them to wreck havoc in New York while she recruited more rogue agents for Black Tusk.

Relationship with other factions

Rikers hate the NYPD and by extension the JTF. Due to their imprisonment, they seek to exact revenge against anybody affiliated with the authority and thus frequently attack the JTF. Any JTF personals unfortunate enough to be taken prisoner are sadistically maltreated, executed and sometimes have their corpses abused, such as being displayed. Their uniforms and gear are often looted to be worn with the police symbol crossed out. The JTF likewise sees the Rikers as barbarians and monsters. Rick Valassi, however, speculates that the Rikers are composed only of hardened and violent criminals, as those imprisoned for non-violent offences or misdemeanors returned to their homes and families.

Rikers have been known to trade weapons with Rioters, but other times will attack them. They also seem to hostile to with the Cleaners, likely stemming from the latter group's fanaticism. Despite their unruly and ruthless attitude they seem to acknowledge the Last Man Battalion as a superior force and avoid confrontation whenever possible (although skirmishes still occur). This is shown that despite the relatively close distance between their castle and the LMB controlled Police Academy (or other LMB territories in general), Rikers have not made any attack on LMB positions, instead of focusing on the JTF. An ECHO in LMB territory reveals a group of Rikers patrolling near an LMB base with one Riker climbing the wall to taunt the soldiers. The other Rikers warned and berate the individual to not antagonize them as they have snipers, only for said individual to get shot in the head seconds later. The others promptly left.  

Any animosity they have with the other factions would have likely been resolved by the time of Resistance as they joined forces with remnants of the RiotersCleaners, and Last Man Battalion to combat the JTF and Division agents as well as to hunt down Aaron Keener.

8 months after the Green Poison outbreak, and at least 6 months after The Division's campaign against the Rikers, the Rikers have come to an understanding with their leaders James Dragov and Theo Parnell working with Aaron Keener, and have taken hold of more territory further south, in Brooklyn. They are wearing lighter clothing, but have generally not changed their identifiers - Prison garb, tattoos, looted police riot gear and stolen ballistic vests. They control the Financial District and Civic Center. They will attack Cleaners on sight even though James Dragov and Theo Parnell work with Vivian Conley and Javier Kajika who are the leaders of the Cleaners. They will also attack the Peacekeepers, a JTF and Civilian Militia, on sight as well, especially targeting its NYPD and FNYC members. The bodies of dead first responders are seen tied up at Riker-controlled control points.


Enforcers and Bosses will flank players, even when they are not busy dealing with other Rikers. Runners, as said above, will rush the player with Shotguns or submachine guns. It is crucial that they are eliminated as soon as possible when playing on Hard or Challenging because they can easily wipe out a full group of players, and their range is much further than one would expect. As if that isn't bad enough, Runners will chase players for a good distance before retreating back to their initial starting area. Throwers usually take cover and periodically throw frag grenades. Elite variants throw them in succession, usually in quantities of 3. Hitmen fill the role with the common Sniper and should be the main focus of the team sniper as they can dish out a good amount of damage if left unchecked. Guards are essentially mini-boss class enemies and should be one of the primary targets for teams. On Challenging difficulty, they spawn in teams of two, increasing their threat levels significantly.

In Tom Clancy's The Division 2, they mostly act the same, except for some. The tank walks around firing his nail gun/pistol and never takes cover. The rusher just runs forward-firing their SMGs. The thrower will keep their distance and throws nail bombs. The Heavy Weapons gets to a good location and places their Minigun down, then operates it OR takes cover while another Riker uses the gun.

Tom Clancy's The Division

These guys were the robbers, thieves and murderers we put behind bars, and they are way too keen to remind us of that. I can't tell you how many of my guys they've killed and tortured in their twisted sense of justice.

RIker Enforcers are inmates released by Larae Barrett and onto the streets. Experienced in combat, however they are undisciplined and rely on constant gunfire to subdue opponents. Off the battlefield, they are often found playing cards, murdering JTF and trading weapons with Rioters around New York.

Strategic Data

  • Standard enemies armed with Military AK-47M (Regular) and M4 assault rifles (Veteran/Elite).
  • They can be recognized by their orange and black striped face masks, NYPD jacket and prison jumpsuit.
  • M4s are seen more in higher difficulty areas or missions.

These guys aren't finding frags in crates, pulling them off dead JTF, or even in supply drops. Certainly not in the numbers they've got. Someone else is backing them - I'm just not sure who.

Riker Slingers are unpredictable and sadistic, using frag grenades on the battlefield. However they are highly erratic, so agents are advised to make them targets.

Strategic Data

  • Rikers grenadiers armed with Frag Grenades and a T821 (Regular) or MP5A4 (Veteran/Elite) SMGs.
  • They can be recognized by their riot helmet, NYPD jacket and shoulder slung equipment belts.
  • Elite variants tend to throw grenades in quick succession, and can easily force players out of cover.
  • They have a weak point on their thighs where they store grenades, shooting these pouches enough will cause an explosion, potentially killing the Slinger and anyone around them.

These guys mostly seem to think anyone they fight is a pushover, including Division Agents. What the hell? Are these morons shooting up with drugs before they fight?

RIker Runners are delusional and unyielding Rikers, using shotguns at close range to wipe out their enemies. Off the battlefield, they are often found playing cards, murdering JTF and trading weapons.

Strategic Data

  • Close-range Rikers armed with M870 Express (Regular), Military M870s (Veteran), and Custom M870 MCS (Elite/Named).
  • Can be recognised by their orange jumpsuits, shoulder slung shotgun shell belt and NYPD sleeveless vests.
  • They have 2/3rds the amount of health and (if Veteran/Elite rank) armor compared to regular Rikers. On Challenging difficulty, Runners can easily drop full teams if not taken care of quickly.

These guys seem to run the Rikers arms pipeline, otherwise where would they get sniper rifles? No JTF unit I ever saw was equipped with military grade sniper rifles.

RIker Hitmen are cunning and arrogant. Unlike other snipers, they are not subtle. However, they will panic at close range. They train daily and keep a kill count amongst themselves.

Strategic Data

  • Female Riker's snipers armed with SOCOM M1A sniper rifles (Normal) or Covert SRS (Veteran/Elite) and M45A1 pistols for close-range
  • Can be recognized by their hooded cloaks and orange jumpsuit pants.
  • They have 2/3rds the amount of health and (if Veteran/Elite rank) armor compared to regular Rikers.
  • On higher difficulties, these enemies can deal heavy damage to players who don't take proper cover.

I know these guys got frags and gear off dead JTF, but where the hell did they find the LMGs? No JTF unit I ever saw was armed with those monsters.

RIker Guards are heavy units that use surpression tactics and grenades to kill enemies. Off the battlefield, they typically maintain order inside RIker controlled areas.

Strategic Data

  • Large, heavily armored Rikers identified by their police riot helmets, grey/white face masks, and corrections bulletproof vests. They are equipped with an Tactical M249 Para LMG and Fragmentation Grenades.
  • They are very durable, having 3 times the health and armor of regular Rikers of equivalent rank. On their backs are red ammo boxes that will detonate if shot enough, both dealing damage and temporarily rendering the Guard helpless.
  • They will occasionally have to reload, giving the player a chance to score some hits with retaliation.
  • If you deploy a Turret, they will immediately go towards it and destroy it. Only appear as Elite or Named enemies.
  • On the Clear Sky Incursion, Slider uses a ballistic shield and acts in a similar manner to an LMB SF Gunner.

I didn't believe that telling others to 'not die' would actually work, but these guys challenged that. I guess these guys have something we don't.

RIker Bosses are typically gang lieutenants in an area controlled by the Rikers. They are better armed and equipped than the average Rikers. They are typically found leading takeovers of JTF checkpoints.

Strategic Data

  • A tougher Rikers soldier with 50% more health and armor compared to regular Rikers of equivalent rank, armed with a Navy MP5 N SMG and Flashbang Grenades.
  • They can be recognized by their black and orange baseball caps, NYPD jacket, worn bulletproof vest, and dark blue pants.
  • They can buff other Rikers to deal more damage and appear exclusively as Veteran or Elite enemies.

Tom Clancy's The Division 2

"I don't know who let these assholes out, but it sure has caused us a lot of grief."

The Assault type is largely comprised of ex-convicts from Rikers Island and new recruits. They usually spend their time looting, killing or fighting Peacekeepers, Cleaners, Black Tusk, and sometimes each other. They may not be militarily trained, however, they are skilled in the use of their weapons and should not be taken lightly.

Strategic Data

  • Basic Riker units armed with a Carbine 7 (Normal) or an Enhanced G36 (Veteran/Elite).
  • They usually take cover and are not that dangerous, but can be dangerous in larger numbers.
  • Elite variants are equipped with Tear Gas Grenades which inflicts a confused effect.

"These assholes are using nail bombs on everything from civilians to pets. It's goddamned barbaric."

Throwers are the Rikers explosive experts and typically make IEDs out of nails, explosives, and shrapnel. They are unreliable, erratic, and vengeful.

off the battlefield they can be found experimenting with nail bomb formulas and scavenging ammo.

Strategic Data

  • Female Rikers armed with a Police UMP-45 SMG (Regular) or MP5 ST SMG (Veteran/Elite) and are equipped with proximity nail bombs that can cause bleed damage upon detonation.
  • They usually keep their distance in combat and throw Nail Bombs from a distance.
  • They have a weak point on the back of their waist that causes explosive damage to them.

"Their leadership treats these crazies as expendable, but don't write them off. There's nothing more dangerous than dual SMGs pumping out a large number of rounds at close range in your general direction."

Rushers have been written off by the Riker leadership as erratic and dangerous due to their lack of danger awareness and dangerous method of fighting their enemies, and are more suited to running down helpless civilians rather than fighting real enemies. However, Agents should mark these Rikers as priority targets due to their SMGs and lack of danger awareness.

Strategic Data

  • Female Rikers armed with dual Black Market T821's (Regular) or 2 Converted SMG-9's (Veteran/Elite).
  • They will chase the player for a long time while firing their SMGs.
  • Elite Variants move faster and do much more damage.
  • Acts similar to Riker Runners, but does more damage.
  • They never take cover and have much less health.

"I have nothing good to say about the Riker Snipers. They are mean, sneaky, and it's downright rude to shoot from behind that kind of mobile cover."

Snipers are sneaky, cautious Rikers who have been selected due to their accuracy and stealth. They support their allies by exploiting incautious or weak enemies. However, they carry a taser for close range and can hold their own.

Strategic Data

  • Armed with a Carbon M700 (Regular) or an M1A CQB (Veteran/Elite), and a Maxim 9 at close range.
  • They have a circular riot shield that they crouch behind while shooting at long-range.
  • They also have a taser gun at close range that shocks the target.
  • The taser is used if the player gets too close.
  • They usually crouch, but the shield can be destroyed with enough concentrated fire.
  • They will then take cover and fire from that position.

"Real beef-eater, this guy. I remember putting a few of these guys behind bars back before all this shit started. Definitely more brawn than brain."

Tanks are heavily armored Rikers who are equipped with Riot shields and nail guns. They have been selected due to their size, skill, and ability to carry a riot shield, body armor, and two air tanks. They are the vanguard of the Rikers. They can be found off the battlefield improving their nail guns and testing their gear out on civilians.

Strategic Data

  • Heavily armored Riker armed with a Dazzler rigged riot shield, and a nail gun that does bleed damage on contact.
  • They have an air tank weak point that if shot, will make them switch to a PF45 pistol, similar to a regular Hyena Shield.
  • Their shield can be destroyed with enough concentrated fire and so can their dazzler lasers.
  • The dazzlers are arranged in an inverted triangle just beneath the window in the shield.
  • Bounty Riker Tanks are armed with regular police shield (No Dazzlers) and a Military RPK-74M.
  • If the shield is destroyed he will then use a Nail Gun.

"Sure. Great. Fine. Now they've got heavy weapons. Where the hell did they find them this god-forsaken island? NYC's gun laws are pretty strict."

Heavy Weapons Rikers are Former Riker inmates who are ex-military. They support their allies on the battlefield with their Heavy Machine Guns and typically have a shotgun and looted riot helmet. Off the battlefield, these RIkers can be found improving on their MGs or scavenging equipment.

Strategic Data

  • A Riker equipped with a SPAS-12 shotgun loaded with slug rounds and a stationary HMG that can be set up and used by other Rikers even if the Heavy Weapons dies.
  • They have a riot helmet protecting them from headshots, but it can be destroyed with about half a clip of assault rifle ammo.
  • Their Heavy Machinegun can be destroyed on their back, preventing them from using it.
  • If the player gets too close, or all Rikers in the area die, the HMG detonates, disabling the ability to use it.
  • Elite variants have an HMG that fires explosive rounds at a slower pace but doesn't inflict bleed damage.

"Just when you think you might have put a dent in the Rikers' leadership ranks, another one pops up. If they weren't so damned vicious, I'd consider trying to recruit them."

Leaders are former Rikers inmates who lead their allies on the battlefield. They are typically found leading small groups of Rikers. Multiple leaders usually coordinate big Riker offensives.

Strategic Data

  • A stronger Riker that gives a buff in health to all Rikers in the area, and is equipped with either a Classic M60 LMG, Express M870 SG, P90 SMG, SR-1 Marksman Rifle, or M4A1.
  • They are always equipped with two weapons - a long-range and short-range.
  • Common examples include Express M870 and SR-1, or P90 and Classic M60.
  • Killing the Leader will return all Rikers affected by their buff to their health before the buff and will remember the damage if inflicted before the boss arrived.
  • Leaders will equip their M4 with a Holosight and Laser pointer.
