Briggs was a sailor on the SS Venture, shown briefly in Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie. He journeyed to Skull Island with Carl Denham, but was killed by falling rocks before they got there.

Briggs in the Xbox 360 and PC Version

When Bruce Baxter's body appears later in the game, it looks identical to him. His body is seen in a later level ('The Canyon') next to a broken case containing a sniper rifle. A similar body also appears later on in the level 'To Save Ann', with several spears protruding - the individual in question having clearly been killed by the natives. However, both bodies wear no hat. On the Xbox 360 version he looks very different from the one from ps2 and original xbox, he wears a white shirt, he has a beard and a different brown hat.

Baxter can be seen on the third boat in The Venture his model is similar to Briggs

Baxter can be seen in the V-rex chapter his model is identical to him.

Behind the ScenesEdit

  • Briggs had a non-speaking role in the video game based on the King Kong (2005 film). It is possible, that being the first to die on the expedition in the game, Briggs may have been the replacement for Mike.
  • Briggs was based on the second mate of the Venture in the 1933 movie.
