The Hulkbusters were formed by General Ross to hunt down on the Hulk. It's composed of elite operatives from the US military like Wild Bill and Glenn Talbot.
The Hulkbusters have some of the most latest and well-equipped equipment and weaponry provided by the US military.
They've been chasing the Hulk for months, following him wherever he goes. When they heard rumors of a skinny man wandering in Las Vegas, Ross had confirmed that it's Banner and ordered his forces to move in there at once.
Arriving on the scene where Hulk and Absorbing Man battled each other, they immediately attacked the Hulk with everything they got. But the green brute had smashed them all to pieces, leaving only the command vehicle where Ross is.
Ross would have been next to be smashed if not for the unexpected assistance from two agents S.H.I.E.L.D. sent in, Hawkeye and Black Widow. Enraged with S.H.I.E.L.D.'s interference, Ross have fired a large missile on the Hulk. The two agents would have been killed if not the green brute had saved them.
After being saved, Hulk was captured and the Hulkbusters were ordered to stand down, much to Ross' dismay.
After the Breakout, the Hulkbuster air and ground units were present there among the S.H.I.E.L.D. forces attempting to recapture the Hulk but were order to stand down by Fury due to the Avengers' interference.
The Hulkbusters were on the move again after the Hulk left the Avengers. They sent only one Hulkbuster infantry unit in the Cube trying to infiltrate the abandoned prison before the Abomination ambushed them and the Gamma Dome was projected and engulf the Hulkbuster soldiers,which their fates were unknown.
Ross had sent a contingent of Hulkbuster forces bolstered by three tanks and one attack helicopter with Wild Bill leading the operation near the Canadian border. They nearly had him if not for Hawkeye's interference. After defeated, Wild Bill ordered all forces withdraw from the area.
The Hulkbusters are in motion again when Ross (turned into the Red Hulk) had attacked the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, which may draw the Hulk's attention. After the battle, Ross had manipulated his Hulkbusters and S.H.I.E.L.D. to recapture Hulk as he's responsible for the Helicarrier attack, but nobody knew at the time that he is the Red Hulk.
