Kingsley is a British Allied Forces Elite character that, according to his profile in Electronic Arts' Battlefield webpage, is consider as a good luck omen along his fellow soldiers as his arrival in the battlefield meant that things will turn in his squad's favor.

An explore in the most hostile environments and a wilderness survival instructor, Kingsley uses his endurance as well as his expert rifleman skills to find unknown flanking routes in the most unfavorable terrain.

On the other hand, Schattenwolf, a German Axis Elite character, is trained in psychological warfare and uses her experience as a counter-espionage operative in adapting to both urban and rural combat zones. Aside from environmental concealment, she is also proficient in hand-to-hand combat.

Her anti-social tendencies can be a downside as this can make her ability to work with others questionable and might put her under inquiry. However, thanks to the favor from her squad mates, she can strike fear to the enemy, or to keep their distance.

Both of these elite characters would cost 990 Company Coins, but according to mp1st.com, both Kingsley and Schattenwolf can be acquired by players by simply logging in the game.

It is unclear, however, if the how long the said offer for these Elite characters would last or if players need to buy them after an undisclosed time period.
