​You Can Glitch Into Other Players’ Character Select Screen In ‘Mordhau’

There's a glorious jonkiness to Mordhau, the medieval hack and slash 'em up. Bodies rag doll uncontrollably, players learned they can hit projectiles out of the air with a well-timed sword swing, and one player even managed to hack the in-game lute to play midi files. But the latest discovery is by the best - players have found a way to escape the battlefield and enter other players' character select screen. And when they've got there the real trolling can begin.
