i live in phoenix az, currently. this all happened in virginia though. two bounter hunters tracked me by "pinging" my phone, ran inside my friends house that i was staying with, with 2 handguns and threw me down and cuffed me. they took me to MN where i had some legal issues which were misdomeanors. on the way back they bought me alcohol and i was underage at the time. they didnt have any warrant. am i able to sue them in some way and or get compensation for some type of trauma?

No, I don't see any viable claim on your part for compensation based upon the facts described.
Bounty hunters don't require warrants to secure their fugitives from justice and when you apparently "juimped bond", so to speak", and failed to appear for your criminal cases in Minnesota, (even though they may have been misdemeanors), then they were free to go after you and take you into custody in
the manner you've described (in my opinion).
