He first appeared in a cutscene where they were near Richter, where Jackowicz briefed them on current events.

Then he was seen again when him and Pte. Ulan were painting German tank kills on their Firefly, On the first Polish mission, Kolwalski helps take out a retreating German convoy, two groups of Panzers and two Tigers. Soon, their tank was chasing after Richter after air support weakened his armor, after battles with Panzer tanks and a duel with Richter's tank, Kolwalski and his battle group becomes victorious.

When they finished celebrating, Jackowicz came by, saying that they got orders to take Mount Ormel. After their Division captured the hill, they had to defend it. After the tank crew regroups with Papa Jack in a secluded bunker, Kolwalski was manning a M1919 laying suppressing fire on the enemy, but he is killed when a Tiger tank makes a direct hit to the bunker, much to Ulan's horror.

His nickname, "Bang Boom", suggests that he was crazy about destroying German artillery and tanks. Ironically, he planned to have a simple and peaceful life after the war. He is also very passionate about his homeland, and those against it, suggested by the fact that he spit towards Richter's destroyed tank.

Kolwalski is most recognized by his baldness, and for his large, thick and burly beard.
