Disambig-iconFor the article on the the last version of the same name, please see Rickety Rig

The Rig was a named location in Fortnite: Battle Royale owned by the company, Spillexx. It can be found near Slurpy Swamp. Like all new Points of Interest in Chapter 2, this POI has Henchmen, a boss, a vault, and, at one point was either captured or protected by Midas (the latter being more likely).
