Angry Birds Bad Piggies Level 21-8 Walkthrough

One strategy for Angry Birds Bad Piggies level 21-8 is to fling the white bird down towards the pile of golden wrenches (just above the leftmost helmet pig). If you drop the egg bomb at the right moment the white bird’s corpse will bounce off the stationary stone and up into the middle of the top platform. With a little luck the top platform will come down and the debris will take out all the pigs below. The score in the video below is 118,820.

One bird as noted in the walkthrough but I never managed to get all the wrenches. Three stars will be somewhere between 112450 (2*) and 116120 (3*)

My battery is down to 10%… I’ll have to pick this up later! lol

This high score is courtesy of a 1-birder.

Send the white bird nearly horizontal, releasing the egg to land just to the left of the 2nd pig on the bottom. Make sure you have enough height on the white bird to ricochet into the bottom of the “bridge” across the two floating rocks on the right side. This will start the collapse which will eventually take out everything. Key to a high score is to get all 3 of the golden wrenches. I think it may be possible to get around 124k as I have been able to get 114K using 2 birds.

Finally got above average, although I never could get the right part of the top structure to fall to the right. So there is a sliver of hope if you haven’t been able to do that. I shot the white bird as high as possible and released the egg as soon as I thought it would clear the left stone support of the top structure.

I tried this method before I came here to see what others were trying. Good strategy if you release at the right moment.
Way to think outside the box.

This is “Egg”actly how I got my score of 122010…One Birdie and all the wrenches ;-) I was hoping my score would be a bit higher with getting them all but I guess I lost some ‘debris” points somewhere in the wood.

This level did provide a good challenge for the 1-bird solution with the White Bird. Aiming tip for iPad: zoom in and line up the tallest head feather with a light green crescent-shaped patch. The tallest head feather should break the plane of the bottom dark-light green border. The key is the activation point which was just to get the WB past the left green floating rock and hit the plank just to the left of where the planks meet. The red can and all the wrenches were gone.

I can bounce the white bird into the bottom of the planks but I can’t get any of it to collapsse to the outside, it all comes down through the middle. That leaves just the one pig on the right and it is extremely difficult to reach it with the yellow birds. I’ve tried sliding the bird across the surface of the thing the plank had been on but that usually doesn’t work. A direct shot doesn’t seem to be in the realm of doable shots. Any ideas?

As with most difficult levels, the solution is just post a gripe and soon after…success. Works every time.

Ok, I’m griping! Every time I finally get the white bird right, the blocks miss the far right pig. I can get him a yellow bird, but that brings my score down.

OK, so after several hundred shots I finally got the tnt to fall to the right instead of the left. I sat here in excitement ready to watch the destruction. Well, I watched the destruction along with the companionship of the helmet pig on the LEFT side who sat there merrily on his solid platform happy that he wasn’t involved at all in any of this mayhem.I guess it’s nice to have company.

So my actual question is: is it worth it to shoot at the right helmet pig when he’s the one who is left over or is it more productive to just reset and shoot WB again? I’ll settle for three stars on this one and go on with my life.

This level was a total crapshoot. The walkthough video was possibly the luckiest way to 3-star the level. It’s levels like this that make me wonder who is doing Q/A on the outgoing games at Rovio.

After many, many tries I finally 3-stared with random one-bird luck.

I have repeatedly 3-star this level many, many times by the video method. Getting above 120k, which I’ve done numerous times, takes a bit more luck. Stay high, and slightly left of center of the left floating rock when detonating.

While those wrenches are critical to a high score, If you want to get above 121k, you will also have to do serious damage to the nets. In my photo, I took out all three wrenches, but the nets remained intact for a score of 121k.

OK, I managed to make the one-bird strategy work several times, with scores between 112k and 115k. I decided to keep trying until I beat the average. Then one fluky shot knocked out almost all the wood and all three wrenches. My first high score! I don’t expect it to last.

Has anyone else seen the left helmeted pig fall before a bird is flung? @Enrico-Carl-Andrei reported it in forum on self-destroying levels, complete with screen shot.
If you do see it, and have any date on frequency or time after restart, please report in forum, along with device you play on, and version of ABO. It is either very rare, or device dependent.

I’d just started typing about this other strategy I’ve found, but could only get 111100, + thought I’d better try for 3 stars before I post + yey! finally! I did it – I don’t think there is a level that has got me so frustrated (but I’m sure I’ve said that before).
My alternate way is to launch Matilda down at about 35 degrees below horizontal, + then quickly drop the egg so that hopefully she flies above the top row of pigs + gets tangled in the penalty flags(?)+ lands on the tnt, exploding it + demolishing almost everything (or, almost nothing a lot of the time). This is a pretty laborious way to do it, but I found it more forgiving than the method in the video. It’s probably possible to get 3 stars with one bird, but I’m so sick of this level that I shot a yellow bird down into the wrenches just to make sure.

Tricky level…

I found out that the key to high scores is to break the left board of the bridge. Doing so will, most of the time, send the TNT to the right, helping a lot in clearing it.
Here is the trajectory: http://angrybir.de/1cLMgxf

I got almost the top score in two days of trying. Once with 120k and 2 remaining wrenches, and once with 124k and one wrench.

Anyway, time to move forward.
Here are the resulting damages for my highest score: http://angrybir.de/1cLMmF7

Came back for the challenge of the day. It took a lot of work to just better my old score, 120140, by 460 points. Mostly used the trajectory shot of @asher for the starting point. It does help to break the left board. You will need to get the wrenches for the better scores. It takes a lot of tries to get the timing down right.

Quite not sure, if this strat is posted exactly before. Sometimes language and different used terms are “a book with seven seals” to me.

Strat backwards:
You don´t want to the brigde with the carcass.
You want to hit the upright platform.
From there one in ten the carcass went upwards to the bridge.
There it destroys the wood, releasing on of the stones to the middle, while the TNT fell to the right.

To achieve that, you have to take a low, but upwards arc with WB, releasing the egg “somewhere” pretty much on the lowest piggie.
Don´t look where you release the egg. Imagine the trajectory of the carcass and get a feel for it.

@liontooth By ‘upright platform’ do you mean top right platform? I’m assuming ‘platform’ means the blue half-egg shaped support that’s holding up the bridge?

Sorry, I’m easily confused.

@kelani- I’ve been trying the strategy of @liontooth for the past several hours, & I think I’ve got it figured out…even though so far I’ve only managed to score just over 122,000 points.
You have to send the WB just over the lower left helmeted-pig, toward the lowest pig, the one sitting on the blue rock next to the wrenches. You need to drop the egg to ricochet the WB off of the oval-shaped blue rock, the one in the middle with the 2 piggies sitting on it. The WB has to go nearly straight up to the underside of the bridge. Some debris falls left, while the tnt goes to the right. After that, it’s just hope for the best. Hope this helps !!
