The Howitzers were one of the gangs invited by Cyrus and the Riffs to the conclave held in Van Cortlandt Park. The gang sent nine delegates from their territory in Bedford-Stuyvesant to the conclave in the Bronx; it is unknown what became of the gang's delegates when Cyrus was shot and the meeting was interrupted by the cops.

In The FilmEdit

They attended Cyrus' big meeting.

In The GameEdit

It's possible they were in that large cutscene at the big meeting.
