"Federation Day" is the seventh campaign mission featured in Call of Duty: Ghosts. The mission involves the Ghosts in Caracas, in which they stealthily enter a building to install a hacking device, find information on Rorke, and to find and interrogate his right-hand man, Victor Ramos.
The mission starts on the rooftop of a skyscraper in Caracas, Venezuela. The sky is lit by fireworks as the city celebrates the founding day of the Federation. Keegan and Logan are waiting for Ramos to arrive. Several helicopters are seen flying above, one lands and Ramos comes out. Keegan states that it is time to "earn the mask". Hesh then arrives. Using portable rope launchers, the trio zipline to the building, securing a rappel point. After stealthily taking out enemy soldiers, Keegan and Logan infiltrate the skyscraper by cutting through the glass.
The duo make their way to a server room, where Logan rushes to upload a virus into the system before avoiding five Fed soldiers, one of whom Keegan takes out. The two are eventually recognized by security forces and are forced to rappel down the building into a large lobby where a firefight takes place. Hesh assists them by deactivating the elevators, to prevent enemies from closing in on their positions. Once the Ghosts regroup, they encounter their HVT, Victor H. Ramos, who gives them intel on Rorke. This is interrupted by Rorke, who taunts the Ghosts through a live broadcast. Rorke then proceeds to detonate explosives within the building, forcing the group to evacuate and parachute down as the building collapses.
Shortly after going inside the skyscraper for the second time, an instrumental version of "Survival" by Eminem can be heard. Survival was the song featured in the multiplayer reveal trailer and in the ending credits for the game.
Several books have Activision employees' names inscribed on them.
A book shelf on the 56th floor is inscribed with "Given for: World Not Ending 2012", connecting to the large-scale beliefs of the world ending on December 21, 2012. The 2012 trophy is also found in the mission Struck Down. The same shelf also houses another trophy inscribed with "Awarded For: Most Bushes Cut And Pots Smashed", referencing the Legend of Zelda series, and another trophy with the shape of a Police Box inscribed with "Awarded For: Largest Interior With Smallest Exterior", referencing the TARDIS from Doctor Who.
In a promotional image for the level, the Federation soldier whose corpse is being dragged by Keegan is more heavily armed than the appearance of the enemies in the final version of the level.
When confronting Ramos, there is a chance that near the bottom right corner of the desk, there will be a floating IA-2 with an ACOG Scope and Silencer.
As Keegan moves through the door marked Carani, his weapon changes from an IA-2 to a Vector CRB without his hands moving.
Once Rorke's live broadcast has ended and the explosives are triggered, Ramos goes under the table and begins to pray. The player can execute him without penalty.
It is possible to hide in the same alcove as Keegan during the virus uploading sequence. Doing this will cause Logan not to holster his weapon as instructed by Keegan.
The Federation guard will also still look up from his phone and look towards Logan's alcove due to this being a scripted action.
