After visiting with your WWI associate to begin, this Spy Hunt can be found in the grounds of the Tower of London, on the north side of the Tower Bridge and a little to the west. The memory area is heavily guarded by the neutral Soldier types who will become aggressive if the catch you within the restricted area. There is a single target that we’ll need to find and kill here.

Approach from the south and if you look at your map, it will give you a pretty clear indication of where to look – the freestanding building just east of the main citadel. It’s a good idea to climb to the top of one of the towers here, pop on your Eagle Vision and tag as many Soldiers as possible so that you can better plan your movements.

The objective marker that the game gives us can be found on the second floor of the building in a bedroom. As the building itself has plenty of patrollers inside, it is easier to approach from the roof, drop down onto the balcony running along the eastern side of the building and enter the target room via the open window.

Inspect the body on the floor here to have the objective marker update. This time, it will be displaying the real position of the target who is now running about in the courtyard just south of the main structure in the center of the compound.

Investigate the body in the building (left). Use a hallucinogenic dart on the target to have the guards kill him (right).

Exit via the window and climb to the roof. Use your Rope Launcher to reach the top of the central structure quietly and then drop down to one of the ledges, poles or ropes on the southern side of the building. From here you should be able to see the target running around like a crazy person and the Soldiers guarding the area not seeming to care at all…

We need to kill the target to complete the memory and to fulfil the optional objective for the activity we need to have the guards kill him for us. Easy! Once you are within range of the target (be patient, he’ll run laps of the area) shoot him in the head with a hallucinogenic dart. He’ll go and attack a nearby guard and will not do so well.

Once the target is dead, escape the restricted area and become anonymous to complete the activity.
