The Loading screens in Resident Evil 6 always feature one tip based on the current game mode being played.
When playing the Campaign, most screens will have one gameplay image with a hidden "6" on it, these images are also usually related to the tip written on the screen. Every Extra Mode however has the screen completely black, with only the tip being displayed. It's also possible to skip to the next tip by pressing the sprint button.
All screenshots and descriptions are based on the PS4 version of the game.
Some screens will only show up in specific chapters.
