    Does anybody know what font is used in the Rainbow Six lettering? I have tried many similar fonts but have not been able to find the real one. If anyone knows I'd appreciate any info. Thanks.

    Um, so am I, and I can assure you that the font is not Impact. Scewed or not, it's not even close. The only similarities it has with impact are the fact that the letters are bold and narrow. I found the real font now anyway.

    Closest font I've seen.

    Not sure if this is the exact font, but it's the closest thing I've seen. Just set the character spacing to around -100 and it'll look fine.
    Here's a thumbnail I made showing what it looks like.

    Sorry for the pseudo necro, I just had an answer and had to share it. But before that, here's a bit of reasoning on why it definitely isn't any of the other fonts mentioned/linked:

    It's not Block Gothic RR ExtraBold ExtraCond, because the capital R's descending stroke is straight, not curly.

    It's not Gyazo, because the capital G has a vertical downstroke.

    It's not Impact either. Not only was this the most incorrect response, it was also the most arrogant and condescending one, too. Be more polite the next time you post, please. Also, being a graphic designer doesn't make you an expert on fonts.

    The closest font I've found (and I'm not going to categorically state it is this font) is Scout Cond Bold.

    It has an un-embellished descending stroke on its R. It has a downstroke on its G. It has an unusually wide O-centre. It even has canted ends on its capital S.

    If someone finds an inconsistency with any of the other glyphs, by all means bring it up here. I'd like to know the actual font, too, because I'm a typophile and a big fan of the game, so I'd find the continued search for the real one rewarding.
