The Hopton’s Spy Hideout can be found in the southernmost part of the world map in the center, just west of the road leading to the Tower Bridge. The restricted area for this memory contains a single, larger free standing structure and another, smaller interior section of the large building lining the edge of the restricted zone to the west.
The goal of this memory is to secure three pieces of enemy intelligence and each of these is held by a specific NPC in the area. To acquire the intel either pickpocket it from them or kill them and loot their corpse. We’ll also have an optional objective to plant some false information.
Let’s attempt the central building first as two of the target NPCs and the optional objective can be found inside. Ignore the main entrance and instead approach from the southeast. As soon as you enter the building you’ll see a set of stairs ahead and bar area to the right. Inside the bar area there is a woman holding the first piece of intelligence. Wait until she’s occupied or moving away from your position before sneaking in and pickpocketing the papers from her.
Return to the stairs and use a throwing knife or sneak up and kill the fellow standing at the top. There will be three enemies on this floor of the building – one in the first room and two in the second. Use your sneakiness to eliminate them all quietly. In the room that was guarded by two Spies, you’ll find a glowing book which we can interact with to complete the optional objective.
Find the stairs to the top floor of the building. Here you’ll find a group of four Templars in a room and one of them has the second piece of intelligence. There is a generator just outside of the room we can tamper with to draw an enemy over for a takedown, but I found it much easier to just wait for them to gather together in the center of the room and hit them with a Smoke/Voltaic Bomb and quickly running in to kill them whilst they are incapacitated. Loot the intelligence when you are able.
The final piece of intelligence is in the interior of the building to the west on the top floor. From the top floor of the central building you should actually be able to see directly into the room with the target NPC and his Templar bodyguard. Either throwing knife them both from a distance or hop across and enter the window to kill both of them before looting the target for the intelligence.
After finding all three pieces of intel (and planting the false information if you are interested) escape the restricted area and become anonymous to complete the activity.
