- "You ever say or do something that you can't explain?
Maybe it wasn't you that said it - You that did it.
Maybe it was someone else - their thoughts bleeding through into your brain."
- — Maretti, in the mission Life.

Teaching the Player
- "So we're clear; when this is over... you owe me a hundred."
- — Maretti to the Player.
Maretti is the third specialist to teach the Player during the dream-sequence in 2054, although he is slightly harsh on the Player as he had bet a hundred dollars against Diaz that the Player would've failed at this point, going so far as to state that once this is all over, the Player would have to give back his lost money.
Maretti tells the player that as a member of Taylor's team, they would have access to advanced weaponry, but goes on to explain that in spite of all that, their mind is "truly the greatest weapon", and taught them the cyber abilities Immolation and Firefly Swarm.
Infected by Corvus
Taylor's team find the old Coalescence facility that killed 300,000 people. Taylor is infected by Corvus, who was created that accidently caused the explosion. Hall interfaces with Taylor, infecting herself, leading to Diaz, and Maretti himself.
Under Corvus's influence, Maretti followed his allies to reveal the truth, leading them to Singapore to commit the Denial of Reincarnation onto agents. The team tried to expose CIA information onto the internet, leading to Diaz to stay in the abandoned facility to expose the information.
Finding the Doctor
Taylor and his team than located Dr. Yousef Salim in Cario, Egypt. The doctor is in taken into custody by the Egyptian Army for the Player, Hendricks, and Rachel Kane. The team captures and interrogates the doctor, ending with Taylor executing him, as Hall battles their former allies.
- "I know we did what was right. Can you say the same?"
- — Maretti's final words before death.
Maretti was trapped in Egypt Aquifer after Kane had the facility locked down, separating him from Taylor, who escaped. With no way out, Maretti decided to stand his ground and await for Hendricks and the Player. Maretti failed to kill the Player by the aid of Hendricks after their brief argument. Hendricks attempts to persuade Maretti to put down his rifle and ashure his safety, but to no anvil. The two agents overload the two generators, with the Player able to proceed towards Maretti's sniper position.
Holding Maretti at gunpoint, The Player rants that Maretti is a traitor, and their "truth" has killed more people than he could count. Maretti counters his judgement, telling that he and his team did what was right, and ask the Player has they. Maretti attempts to shoot the Player at point blank, but fails and is kicked out of the control room. Maretti falls and is impaled, killing him. Hendricks leaves in disgust, and comments that the Player killed Maretti like an animal.
The Player in reality died in the Coalescence Hospital by surgery complications. In reality Maretti died upon being infected with Corvus.
