New World Bug Discovered That Lets You Kick Other Players by Chatting With Them

With Amazon Games' New World releasing last September, bugs are being spotted in their new MMORPG. This past weekend, one exploit was discovered by fans and this time, it's something that could kick other players off the server by chatting with them.

Kotaku reported a Reddit post by u/janikFIGHT mentions that once players type an HTML code in the chat, it can either display some images or kick players from the game.
