The Renegades were a mercenary group operating out of Blüdhaven.
The Renegades were hired by Clinton Hogue to kidnap Felicity Smoak. They were eventually found by the Arrow, Arsenal and the Huntress. They were almost beaten, but Lyle Bolton was able to electrocute everyone and take Felicity and Helena hostage, demanding that Oliver choose who to save. Oliver chose Helena, much to Felicity's shock. However, Helena quickly knocked over Bolton and rescued Felicity. Oliver sent an anonymous tip to the police, letting them know of the mercenaries' location, before tying them up and leaving.
