The Stalker 2 developers are using a custom teeth tool to make each character's smile unique.

In a new video showing off some of the detailed character and weapon models in Stalker 2, GSC Game World's Zakhar Bocharov said the developers are using a custom tool to remove teeth, or replace teeth with variants such as dental crowns.
