Step 1: Select "Play" and then "Survivor" after opening the game.

Step 2: Go to the in game store.

Step 3: Select the "Killers" section at the top.

Step 4: Select any killer and press the "Select" button in the bottom right.

Step 5: Navigate back to the lobby.

At this point the only issue is that the player's camera position is further away than it should be, however, if between Step 1 and Step 2 you were to select "Loadout" or "Customize" in the lobby, other effects would be evident.

Loadout:

If you had the "Loadout" area open in the lobby when performing the necessary steps, then depending where you had selected, different effects could occur.

Perks: If you select the "Perks" section of the Loadout, it will show killer perks instead of survivor perks. (It will show the killer perks of any killer you have prestige and will show general killer perks as yellow, however equipping general killer perks will show them as having "None remaining") These perks may be equipped on the survivor, however, you will not be able to load into a match with them equipped.

Add-ons: If you select the "Add-ons" section of the Loadout, it will show the equipped item as the chosen killer's power and will show said killers add-ons in place of the regular survivor add-ons. These add-ons may be equipped but will show as "None remaining".

Offering: If you select the "Offering" section of the loadout, it will show killer offerings as opposed to survivor offerings. Selecting offerings meant exclusively for killers will show the offering as "None remaining".

Customize:

If you had the "Customize" area open in the lobby when performing the necessary steps, there will also be multiple effects. (I don't know as much about this part due to the game crashes that are prone to occur)

Depending on the selected customization slot, you may either attempt to equip: An "Outfit", A "Head" or a "Charm". Attempting to equip a killer outfit will simply return your survivor to their default cosmetics whereas attempting to equip any individual part of a killer outfit will result in either having multiple head cosmetics selected simultaneously, or a game crash.

Charms: Using the bug in the charms section of the customize area can result in the use of killer only charms being used on survivor, and bugged item names, descriptions and icons.

If you were to try the bug on killer using survivor selection in the store, it will simply kick you into the main menu.
