[Header(“string”)]

Add a comment in the inspector for the variables used in the script. This is especially useful when you have tons of variables. See below example: two attributes, speed and myBag have their comments above in the inspector:

On the opposite of the [HideInInspector], [SerializeField] makes a private variable of a script visible in the inspector.
