Who Are the LARPers in Hawkeye and How Did They Help?

In Episode 2 of Hawkeye, when Clint Barton went to look for the Ronin costume, the apartment of Kate Bishop has been marked as evidence and he did not find the suit but what he discovered is that it is on one of the volunteers who responded to the scene, a firefighter, who even posted a video of himself in a dope outfit, ready for LARP.

Clint went to the park where the LARPers meet every week and he even participated in it no matter how weirded out he was. The one wearing the Ronin suit fought him and asked if he could win the round in exchange for the suit. Well, Clint’s a sport and how awesome would it be for the one wearing the suit as he defeated Hawkeye, an Avenger, in battle, right?

Well, that is not their last appearance as they are back in Episode 4 and this time, Kate was sent to them. Kate was surprised how they are really into what they are doing and they are even doing some exercise on their skills with their weapons. When Kate asked who among them is with NYPD so they could retrieve the trick arrows of Hawkeye and they did so as Kate conveyed it as if it is a mission.

It was done, too, and they even made a deal with Kate that she’d supply them materials to make their costumes and she even asked if they could do two more, presumably for her and Clint.

Could the LARPers be the ones who’ll make the purple comic-accurate costume of Hawkeye?
