    Step 1: Find the three notes in the following missions (locations in the video down below)
    - Brick in the wall (at 0:38)
    - Echoes of a cold war (at 0:55)
    - Desperate Measures (at 1:26)

    Step 2: Select the mission Operation Red Circus and read each note. Write down the following information about each person. Be aware that the locations and gender might not be the same for you.

    first note: name (bearded lady/strong man/juggler) & travel location (city, country + date)
    -> each section describes an agent
    second note: travel location (city, country + date)
    -> each section describes the travel locations they visited
    third note: sex (male/female)
    -> each section describes the gender of the agent

    Step 4: Identify the three agents from the list. Simply compare their profiles with your list and select the three matching people.

    Step 5: Complete the mission. After completing the achievement should pop up. Difficulty does not matter.


    As mentioned in the comments by @Reqqu you can just choose and suspect any three agents and complete the mission to pop up the achievement. You only won't receive the player card for choosing the correct agents. And be aware that there might be multiple spawn locations for the note in the mission "Desperate measures" - for me it was the one shown in the video.

    After completing and back in the room again you will receive a notification in the top right corner that you successfully identified all three agents and completed the challenge, what unlocks a player card for you:

    Multiplayer section -> Challenges -> Campaign -> Story -> Loyal Agent -> Reward: Player Card


    My list looked like this (I am playing in german, tried to translate it for you):

    bearded lady: male
    Kopenhagen, Dänemark at 04.12.80 | Krakau, Polen at 04.10.80

    strong man: female
    Paris, Frankreich at 21.01.81 | Barcelona, Spanien at 09.01.80

    juggler: male
    Cambrige, England at 23.10.80 | Ost-Berlin, Deutschland at 16.09.80

    Hope this helps you out getting the achievement.

    JanSH4DOWThanks for pointing out the multiple spawn locations and that the achievement also pops if you just choose any three agents. As I wanted to complete it correctly I just wrote down what I did for getting the achievement. But it is now noticed in the guide. It's my first guide here on TrueAchievements, thankful for tips to improve.

    JanSH4DOWAs far as I know you have to restart the campaign again but I can't say for sure. For me the both additional missions unlocked after the first few missions if I remember correctly. Don't forget to get all other story achievements for the last missions as well (e.g. Mind Trip and The Red Door). Happy hunting

    If you have completed the campaign without doing any side mission, you can play them quickly by selecting the mission "Safehouse: Cuba briefing".

    Just skip the intro cutscene and the evidence board will have the missions along with all the evidence you previously collected.
