Angry Birds Danger Above 3 Star Walkthrough Level 6-6

Danger Above level 6-6 is quite challenging to get 3 stars, and a one-bird clear is almost a requirement. Our strategy is to loft a Boomerang bird over the structures, spinning it back into the wooden blocks of the left structure. The TNT within should detonate and toss stones everywhere. With some luck, the stones that land on the lower structure can cause its TNT to detonate as well. If at first you don’t succeed, try try again. The score in the video below is 79,630.

If you have a different strategy feel free to leave a comment below; however, don't just post your score via the comments, as that's what the leaderboards are for.

I got ALL with one bird (but only one structure detonated) and it only gave me 64,070. I have tried and tried and tried to get it to detonate the 2nd structure with only one bird shot, but it will not happen. I have all kinds of stones hitting it and it doesn’t detonate. And like I said, I’ve been able to get all them with just one bird – the stones from first structure hitting the 2nd structure hard enough to kill everything, but not enough to detonate it. Using 2 birds I’ve gotten 76,330. But the highest I’ve gotten with just one bird is 64,070. So what do I do?

Yeah it’s a tough level but it is doable. You just have to keep trying. Both structures must explode to 3 star. Reps and luck is the only way to score high here. If it helps, you may want to try hitting the lower structure 1st hoping to get the top structure to explode. I’ve done it both ways but I think the videos way is the easiest.

I’ll keep trying, but I’ve gotten all pigs to die with only one bird, but not all pigs + both structures. I’ve tried at least 50+ times. Just won’t do it. I’ve watched the video several times and made sure I’m hitting at exactly the same spot, but the flying stones just don’t make the 2nd structure explode for me. It has even exposed the TNT without exploding it. And killed all the critters without exploding it. :(

Keep trying. I’m afraid to say that even when you do get both structures to explode, that’s no guarantee of a 3 star result .. In fact you probably won’t get the 78K. 50 x’s isn’t much here. I’ve played this level 100s of times. Good Luck.

I assume your referring to the pig rolling off the bottom structure. Yeah that happens a lot on this level. It actually helps you when it does because it clears off the stone for a harder impact by the falling stone increasing the chance of exploding the bottom structure.

By Rasuli

You have to wait 4-5 seconds to throw the bird till this pig either rolls to the right edge or falls, so the impact of the stones is clear on the top stone of the lower level and not on the pig as pjdambra says.

For me also helps to throw the bird higher (like 45 degrees) so the impact is somehow downwards rather than horizontal. This way I did it on the third attempt after dozens of previous tries (78130, 3-star, and 77910, 2-star on the next hit). Good luck.

AMslimfordy’s video for ABN worked. It took a while.
Also tried to blow up the bottom structure first to see if the triangle or debris would hit the top one. Kinda looks like a gun. Could not get enough debris to get the top structure to explode.
Obtained a score of 77,640 using two birds; first the top then the bottom and let the pig roll off the bottom structure naturally.

It’s not hopeless Mimi. You just have to keep on trying.. I went back here after reading your post to see if the block makes it even harder, i did after about a half hour trying. Scored a 82490 which is lower than my high, so I’m not sure if the block makes it harder for high scores, but it is still doable. Good Luck.

By caviar 101 (@caviar-101)Score: 85,790

It indeed is possible to get a top 100 score despite the little wooden block. The presence of this block complicates the approach of exploding the upper TNT so that its debris sets off the lower TNT. Solution: aim at and explode the bottom TNT with the first bird in just the right way and some of its debris will fly upward and to the left, setting off the upper TNT. I found it best to approach this with a fairly low-angle boomerang shot, enough to comfortably clear the upper structure but not by a lot. When properly aimed, this causes the boomerang bird to hit the lower structure at a fairly flat angle, which once in a while will result in exploding both sets of TNT.

you can take bith the wood and helmeted pig out by the boomerang bird, if you aim the latter above the wood instead of on it as in the video. with some luck the tnt detonates lauching the bird onto the small wood before the other debris arrives. (for me this works every few minutes, detonating both the upper and lower tnt; don’t know about high scores though).

@amslimfordy‘s video is good. Remembering the first time through this level (before finding ABN) I was already flinging Al Slim’s way but, couldn’t get higher than 78,870. Coming back now, thanks to ABN, trying to at least get averages, I hit top structure beautifully on 2nd fling, for 81,160! Will keep trying, to get above average.

Accidentally, and with an obscene amount of luck, I triggered Al way too late for the top structure and he crashed into the lower one; the explosion kicked enough debris, hard enough, up to explode the top structure! I’m happy with my new high score…for now. ;-)

Method that worked was I flew the bird into the top stricter…then the debris fell just right for me.

Hi guys,
It is my 1st post in here. I used to play angry birds since I got samsung galaxy s2 one year ago. Couple of days ago I started adding my scores.
My goal was just to do 3 stars in every single level of 11 angry birds worlds.
Last 3 stars I get in some Red’s Mighty Feathers level. Than I it was over for me. No more goals. I could not compare my results with anybody, than I found this site.
In less than one week I did all of 63 Poached Eggs levels above avarage, now it’s time for another 2 worlds.
Level 6-6 is my best so far. I do no remember this level well, I played it propably some 4 months ago, got 3 stars and leave it.
It seems I was very lucky, for sure it was my 1st 3stars try, and I get 87,320 points (32 rank).
Good luck to all of you!

I got my high score using the bottom structure approach. First, position Boomer #1 at launch with his nose barely touching the green foilage that is behind the slingshot. Boomer will just clear the top structure. Activate the boomerang just as he crosses the last branch of the striped tree, just under the canopy. Eventually the bottom structure boom will throw up enough debris to blow the top structure. Getting a score as high as mine is largely a matter of luck, but this strategy should get you into the 80s.

Surprisingly the bottom, @justpast40, because it never worked for me when this level was first released. I went very low over the top and reversed when the bird reached striped tree (iPhone 3/4 zoomed IN.) Specific spots in the background never work too well across platforms. I figure everyone in the top 100 is hitting the right spot (be it top or bottom) and the rest is the luck of the debris after that. Your score is good for this level, too. If you have the patience fling a few more; you’re obviously already doing something right!

Thanks @maiasatara & @karen68. I’m getting lots of cleared levels with top or bottom & I found I’d posted in Oct 2012 that the bottom did in fact work for 80k scores.

I think if my current score of 84860 had been to the top that I would have added another comment at that time, so I suspect it too was to the bottom. I’m still flinging because I really hate it when I can’t improve even 10 points during the Challenge, but ssshhhhh, I must whisper, that because the ABG (Angry Birds Gods) have a warped sense of humor & if I do in fact mange to improve it might be only 10 points if they’re eavesdropping.

@justpast40 I’m getting more 1-birders going for the top, but they haven’t scored as high overall as the few 1-birders I’ve had going for the bottom. Unfortunately they’re happening a lot less frequently that way for me.

The theater333 video shows a great shot to the bottom structure. I’ve never had it happen that cleanly, what I’ve seen is the long stone plank hit the wood but only damage it, then one of the short stone planks flies up to destroy the wood & set off the TNT.

Still haven’t managed to improve my score today though.

@maiasatara congrats on your awesome score! :)

I’ve just scored 89,740 points using only one bird. The lower level was targeted first,with debris taking out the upper level. A few of the triangle-shaped pieces of concrete flew to the right,getting rid of the last helmeted pig. I’ve posted 2 screenshots. The first one shows the trajectory & the activation point of the boomerang bird. The second pic shows the final score.

After replacing 3 phones and 3-Starring this level 3 times, I can only say that the video is the best method available for 3 stars. It is one of the few levels in the Angry Birds canon that just depends on luck. The first time took three days and a lot of patience. I probably played the level hundreds of times. The second, I did detonate the bottom structure first and managed to blow enough debris to detonate the top one. I would recommend just following the video though. I just beat it again and gravity is definitely your friend on this one, so go with the top level first. Again, it is pretty much all luck and does not depend on where you aim.
