Angry Birds Bad Piggies Level 21-5 Walkthrough

One strategy for Angry Birds Bad Piggies level 21-5 is to fling the Yellow bird through the rope suspending the boulder and into the TNT beyond. Make sure both pigs in the bottom right are popped. Then “shoot the moon” with the Boomerang bird, flinging it high and spinning it back through the gap between the two circles. With a bit of luck, this can cause massive amounts of destruction and earn your stars! The score in the video below is 136,450.

Same strategy. I had the yellow bird hit the tnt and somehow take out everything but one pig on the bottom right. Still only got 2* and 121980.

can’t seem to crack the one birder. nothing comes close to the second tnt, must be doing something wrong but can’t see what. Anyway thanks for strategy even if it has got me cross eyed and going mad lol

By Travis

I got the 1 birder…it’s the same strategy but you get lucky with the first bird. Seems the higher the arc you can make with the first bird the better but I’m not certain it matters. Basically with just the right bounce the hanging rock hits the triangle at the bottom of the right hand structure and causes the TNT there to go off.

Finally got the boomerang bird through the rocks and hit TNT. You don’t want a direct hit on TNT, I think, because, even though spectacular, I only got 123K.

Well, maybe hitting TNT is OK; this is one of those rinse and repeat levles.

I’m not entirely sure. I hit that TNT on the left side with the debris from my first shot, and there is something a bit odd about the effect. Upon detonation, debris rockets left at a rather startling speed. I use the word startling since, in the instance when you can make it happen, the difference is decidedly evident. On the right, debris from the detonation moves at the rate we’ve come to expect from a TNT. The TNT on the left, however, moves the debris at a significantly more substantial rate. And it seems significant enough, to the point where, so it seems to me, that debris gets accelerated offscreen so quickly that it doesn’t get accounted for in the score. If it does get counted, it happens at a rate that I can’t visually process.

In any event, I managed to 1-bird this level, with the two boomerang birds and the white birds as bonus points. I seem to have achieved a near miraculously lucky shot that I doubt I’ll ever get to reproduce, but I’m glad I got to see the show, so to speak.

I’m so glad you posted this @truckdriver. I wish I had some better details but it was all just so quick and I’m not entirely sure what happeneded or what was what!?! I flung the YB as usual…which for me is as high up on the string as possible as this seems to make the stone fall more leftward, towards the left tnt. Then I “blinked” and I had a score of 135120! I have tried to repeat it so that I could provide some details for everyone but no go! Very strange indeed. Thanks for sharing ;-)

You’re welcome. I had to say something when I noticed that strange phenomenon.

Just had the same thing happen and was left with a two bird score of 119330 – and almost no debris left that had not been destroyed, although a huge amount was blown off screen. Very frustrating!

I’ve been forced to take a “re-do” on all of these levels since Rovio conned me into an Archive and Un-Archive on my Nook to attempt to solve an updating issue. This of course wiped out all of my scores. In the second run through of this level I experienced the super explosion and having most of the wood debris flung leftward off the screen for no score. It would have been a great score too!! At least it was neat to witness that super blast!

@Mvnla2, I think that sometimes you got a super explosion. Lots of debris is flying of the screen. It’s my idea that debris that doesn’t break on the screen isn’t counting for the score.

By Liam

135250 – like the video, the hardest part for me was the activation of the boomerang bird. It’s one of those ‘fling until you get lucky’ levels. Then get the damage that makes a good score.

128280 – one bird aimed just like video. Hit at an angle that sent debris flying everywhere and took it all out. Although there was nothing left, the score still wasn’t that great.

This is definitely one of the most annoying levels (although not as bad for me as one of the Rio Beach ones). Getting the aim right on the yellow bird & the green birds is hit & miss for me, and then when I get them to work, I’ve scored no higher than 126,960…going to keep trying other suggestions on here, but I may have to walk away for awhile!

Wow. The luck of posting on this site strikes again. 138,510 less than 10 minutes after my previous post, using the method from the video. I didn’t do anything different than the previous 1000 times; it just seemed that more things fell down this time, so just keep trying if you’re having no luck!

Here’s my strategy for this level first bird as in video , you need to get as close as possible to 60k. Second bird high up in air, down between boulders not aiming at TNT , aim for bottom Verticle wood onto wrench .A good hit should bring structure down on top of TNT. If tnt explodes high scores possible . Repeatable 139290 takes time

Thank you @mudshark-70 for posting your technique. Worked great. Your tip of getting close to 60k was good.
Couple of aiming tips for iPad users, zoom in:
1. Line up the top feathers of the Yellow Bird with the third point from the top on the palm tree leaf in the background. Barely touching or just a slight space. Minor adjustments made need to implemented depending on the landing point of the bird.
2. Xebic and Karen below mention about having the Boomerang Bird’s beak just touching the slings base which is great but found the activation point slightly different and over where there are two palm trees with the white/blue sky behind them and some vines between them. I activated BB over the right side of the left tree. BB came in and hit the vertical board below the tnt, tnt rolled right, activated, and the majority of wood, glass, stone, etc., were gone.

Obtained a 1-bird solution once for 135K. Also tried the moon shot with the YB but did not produce a high score.

@xebic88 that is exactly how to aim the boomerang. Normally he gives me fits but once I figured out how to aim him it was a relatively easy shot to make. I got lucky in that flying debris got the gold wrench up top plus the boulder that had fallen from the rope was pushed right & rolled down the small slope to push more debris off the edge.
Encasing the TNT in wood is sneaky, several times it has fallen down & not exploded due to the extra protection. Happy flinging everyone :)

Hi @brave1966 i am guessing Chuck is the yellow dood ,lol, .if so ,.Try starting zoomed out and pull sling back ,and line the flat of his body up with the bottom of the V of the sling ,and u should be able to lob him into tnt without needing the boost ,just takes a fewn tries to get the spot ,its quite good actually ,so ty for making me look for a mark ,lol…good luck
@annach and Karen great scores ,its a hard 1 to squeeze for that bit extra ..happy hunting:)

Finally was able to put 2 good shots together. For some reason, I had a very hard time consistently hitting the first shot and I was much worse executing the second. About the only thing I could hit with the boomerang birds was the stone orbs. After about 100 tries, I was able to figure out the launch position where I could take out the stone on a rope and the TNT and the wooden structure. Firing the boomerang bird at a high angle and clicking just as it was passing the green mountian top in the background finally gave me the hit I needed. Seeing the score hit 116000 before the addition of my spare birds made me so happy knowing I wouldn’t have to do this aweful level again.

OK, @Kathy.

The keys to shot 2 are sling/bird alignment (as xebic88 mentions) and timing of the spin back (as xebic88 and ohforfive mention). I was able to nail this shot fairly consistently before I got the perfect shot 1 to set it up better.

@kathy – I’m responding to your bird signal, lol…I got my original score as a one birdie, a bit of a fluke really…I hit YB high up on the string and the stone fell left enough to ignite left tnt…since this is very hard to repeat, I tried just now with @xebic88 ‘s aiming tips and they worked perfectly! I actually just improved my score from 135120 to 135790!
As he said, for the first shot, line YB’s base of his body so that it’s even with the “v” in the sling…you don’t even have to use the acceleration but you can if you wait until just as you are at the string so that it doesn’t go aray.
Then his aim for Boomer bird is spot on too! Pull him back on the sling until the tip of his beak touches the vertical stick part of the sling and tap him just as he is over the first palm tree in the background up on the hill! I know you can do it! GL ;-)

FINALLY 132,280. the key I found was the strategy above that gets around 58K on the first shot, then shoot the boomerang so it just barely clears the wrench. initiate spin when it’s the same height as the center of the bottom of the two circles. should, with practice, take out the base of the tower. this only works if at least the triangle rock is busted. hoo boy this was a horribly hard level

I used the same strategy as in the video, with a small tweak.

The difference is that the yb is accelerated at the last possible moment, and aimed just above the TNT at the small wood board.
I found out that it helps to get 60k+ scores after the first shot.
Here is the trajectory and a 62k score: http://angrybir.de/17JHmy9

The second bird is aimed just as in the video.
Here is the trajectory and the resulting damages: http://angrybir.de/17JHGNg

And here is the highscore screenshot: http://angrybir.de/17JHVbb

Hope it helps.
