Allying with Ricardo Diaz
Attack on Star City
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-density 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 bio compound. The Longbow Hunters encountered Samanda Watson, Dinah Drake and Ramirez who tried to stop them. After a fight, the group got the bio compound and escaped the facility however Silencer ended up captured. Later, while debriefing the situation, she witnesses Diaz's transformation as he became a Meta-human.
Days later, they assist Diaz when trying to destroy the city with bombs. When the new Green Arrow interfered and helped to stop Diaz, she and the Longbow Hunters decided to leave the fight and she shot a dart that caused a small distraction to escape.
