Five months after Ricardo Diaz was forced into hiding, the Longbow Hunters broke in an off-site facility of A.R.G.U.S. where they stole prototype B-24, a high densitable renewable battery able to power an entire town.

The group later attempted to raid a train to steal an energy weapon that could be used combined with the B-24. John Diggle and a team of A.R.G.U.S. agents tried to stop them but they ambushed them and took out the agents. John was able to get to the weapon and escape, causing the longbow hunters to fail.

The group later attempted a break in on CDC, a secure government facility to steal a biocompound. The Longbow Hunters encountered Samanda Watson, Dinah Drake and Ramirez who tried to stop them. After a fight the group got the biocompound and escaped the facility, however, Silencer ended up captured. Silencer will be finally liberated by her comrades and soon after, Ricardo Diaz will be incarcerated after his fail revenge against Green Arrow.
