- "This city fell apart. It's crazy out here. Every man for himself. Survival of the fittest. You gotta take what you need in this world."
- — Rioters
Rioters are groups of common thugs and delinquents that just want to rob and even kill others to ensure their own survival. Many know they can kill but will use that as a final option, or they will pull the trigger first.
While Rioters do not have a set in stone hierarchy, each gang follows a certain leader. Such examples being Hutch or Five-O (possibly may just be a boss or a squad-like leader, basically tougher versions of peon Rioters) as well as a few more leaders. They usually carry bigger and heavier weapons than their lower ranking members and tend to have armor, with the weapon of choice for most of them seems to be light machine guns and marksman rifles.
Intelligence Brief Edit
Beyond the organized factions roam thugs and outlaws that now rampage through the city, rioting, looting, and assaulting any who come near them. Unafraid to wound or kill, they survive by preying on the weak. They roam in packs, hunting down easy targets and lashing out at authorities when they get the chance. Volatile and dangerous, they are a constant thorn in the side of the JTF and a steady drain on resources.

- Lurker - Standard enemies armed with PF45 pistols or SMG-9 if Veteran/Elite and have more armor than the normal Lurkers
- Dare Devil - Enemies armed with tear gas grenades and 586 Magnums or M1911 pistols (Veteran/Elite). They have a special ammo pack on the back of their backpack that can be shot, causing an explosion that will cause large amounts of damage, potentially killing them and anyone near, including the player. Elite and Boss variants use incendiary grenades instead as molotovs that explode on impact. A female variant appears only as Elite or Boss rank and armed with a T821 and frag grenades, typically seen in Challenging mode or the Dark Zone.
- Bruiser - Melee enemies armed with baseball bats. Elite variants use golf clubs instead. They have 2/3rds the amount of health and (if Veteran/Elite) armor compared to regular Rioters.
- Lookout - Snipers armed with M44 Carbine sniper rifles or Classic M1As (Veteran/Elite) and PF45 pistols for close-range. They have 2/3rds the amount of health and (if Veteran/Elite) armor compared to regular Rioters. Can be easily picked out of the crowd by their large poncho that they wear.
- Heavy Weapons - Armed with RPK-74 light machineguns, with 50% more health and armor compared to regular Rioters of the same rank.
