The Renegades were a mercenary group operating out of Blüdhaven.
The Renegades were hired by Clinton Hogue to hold Felicity Smoak hostage. 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 The Huntress hostage. Oliver chose Helena, much to Felicity's shock, but she quickly knocked over Bolton and took back Felicity. Oliver sent an anonymous tip to the police, letting them know of the mercenaries' location, before tying them up and leaving.
