The Face of the Enemy is a mission in Watch Dogs: Legion. It is the penultimate main mission of the game, as well as the penultimate mission on the second DedSec chapter, "London Rising".
DedSec’s party was interrupted by Zero Day, and DedSec go out of their way to find the source of the signal. By tailing a van to trace the source, Bagley finds that it came from Stockwell War Bunker in Lambeth, which could possibly be the Zero Day headquarters.
At the bunker, there is a lift which can only be used by unlocking a security system. Screens surrounding the lift turn white creating a certain code, which must be repeated by the operative by hacking the screens. If the code is inputted incorrectly, three Combat Spiderbots drop down from the ceiling, and only after destroying them can the process be repeated. After inputting the correct code and accessing the lift, they arrive at a heavily guarded underground base, protected by turrets and gas mines. By making their way past the traps, the operative arrives in a room filled with servers and other tech, including a hologram of the infamous Zero Day leader. However, Bagley is unable to tell the operative more about the room, so they search the hideout for individual data points.
They find that Zero Day is behind Mary Kelley’s microchips, a backdoor to FILAMENT, Bagley’s source code, and that they reverse engineered Project THEMIS. It is clear that the plans stolen by DedSec have been stolen by Zero Day and used for their own purpose. The operative also finds a tablet, and after downloading data from it, it shows a video of a former DedSec operative being taken to Nigel Cass and being accused of planting the bomb in Parliament. Feed on a screen shows the London bombings, and Cass states that he now has power in London, shortly before the operative is shot in the head by Cass. The operative searches for more information in the Zero Day hideout.
They come across a computer which shows a video of Sabine Brandt talking with Nigel Cass. The video reveals that Sabine is the true leader of Zero Day, and the voice behind the hologram. Sabine says that she wants access to FILAMENT, but their deal has been cancelled as DedSec managed to defuse the bomb in Parliament. Cass attempts to kill Sabine, but she manages to escape.
Bagley manages to find the source of Drool_Brittania, a Zero Day program designed to steal the tech gathered by DedSec. Whilst they investigate the console it runs on, Sabine appears from behind the operative, and states what Drool_Brittania truly is: a plan by Zero Day to destroy society and restart from scratch. She also states that she is the only member of Zero Day, as she knew no one else would join her. As Sabine leaves, Albion troops flood into the room, leaving the operative to fight to escape the bunker after Bagley has unlocked the blast doors. After leaving the bunker, the other DedSec operatives reveal that they are also being attacked by Albion, so Bagley sets up a secure meeting point for the operatives.
