These 22 gangs are listed in order of turf (North to South).
Little is known about the formation of each of these 67 gangs, except that they were founded sometime before 12th July, 1979, and that they were on the Riffs' network.
When the Riffs called a conclave of New York City's gangs, nine delegates of each gang were sent to the meeting on behalf of the gang.
At the meeting in Van Cortlandt Park, the Bronx, it is unknown what became of the gangs' delegates when Cyrus was shot and the meeting was interrupted by the police.
|The Alleycats||Bad luck appears to be their recurring theme, as the cat in their logo is black, and the number on its tail is 13.|
|The Amsterdam All-Stars||N/A|
|The Big Trains||It's possible that D-Train was once a member of this gang.|
|The Black Hands||Stacey is a member.|
|The Colt 45′s|
|The Delaney Rovers|
|The Dingos||Originally a homosexual gang who owned Doberman pinschers and captured Swan (cut from script). They're referenced in Heavy Muscle's unused audio.|
|The E Street Shufflers||N/A|
|The Easy Aces||In the movie script, Mercy originally mentioned them in her dialogue about everybody 'soldiering in' to Sully.|
|The Eighth Avenue Apaches||Their turf is Eighth Avenue, Manhattan.|

|The Judas Bunch||On 20th May, 1979, the Judas Bunch were defeated by the Boppers in Harlem, which was later reported by the DJ. They also were defeated by the Riffs at some point, as mentioned by Swan. Their leader was killed for skimming money from the AC's at some point, as mentioned by Snow.|
|The Masai||In the movie script, Mercy originally mentioned them in her dialogue about everybody 'soldiering in' to Sully. They aren't listed as having appeared at the meeting, so they are most likely not on the network.|
|The Meatpackers||In the movie script, Mercy originally mentioned them in her dialogue about everybody 'soldiering in' to Sully.|
|The Mongols||In the movie script, the Warriors originally walk through their territory while they're playing stoopball. Cochise mentions that they lost a soldier to the Mongols in 1978. They dress similarly to the Huns.|
|The Nickel Steaks|
|The Nightriders||In the movie script, Vermin asks if there are any at the meeting, as he dislikes them.|

|The Queen’s Bridge Mutilators|
|The Real Boys|
|The Red Hook Shooters||Their turf is Red Hook, Brooklyn.|
|The Shanghai Sultans|
|The Southern Cross||Their name implies that they are a white supremacist gang.|
|The West Side Lords||In 1979, they were defeated by an all-female gang, as mentioned by Ajax. It was possibly the Lizzies, although an east-side girl gang is mentioned by the Lizzies in their hangout, so they could've been responsible. Their textures are in the game files with the prefix 'West'. The textures for the Warlord and main lieutenant match two members standing behind Knox at the meeting.|
