Thousands of assassins have taken to the streets of revolutionary Paris in Ubisoft’s newly launched Assassin’s Creed Unity, and as is so often the case with sprawling, open world games like this, loads of glitches have come to light. These range from the prosaic and silly to the strange and sort of horrifying.

The real winner, though, is a glitch wherein characters’ heads disappear, leaving you talking to nightmare visions consisting of disembodied eyes and mouths. Here are some of our favorites, culled from Twitter:

Have you seen the no-face glitch for Assassin’s Creed Unity? Watch Dogs suffered from the same problem.
