When you finally do get around to looting something, you'll once again be staring at the tablet screen. Walk up to a lootable container—be it an actual container or a downed undead—and the game will inform you whether or not there's anything to be had from it.

When you press the loot button, the character on-screen hunches over the container, showing you only his back. On the Wii U controller's screen, however, appears the contents of the container, and you can drag and drop into your own inventory as you please.
