Angry Birds Mighty Hoax 3 Star Walkthrough Level 5-20

Mighty Hoax level 5-20 is very challenging. Our strategy is to softly lob the first Blue bird through the leftmost ice bridge, popping both pigs there. Loft the next Blue bird a bit farther, through the ice bridges in the middle of the structure, popping all three pigs within. Fire the next Blue bird into the stone block above the remaining pigs on the right side, pushing it to the right onto the pigs. The score in the video below is 98,380.

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.

1. The trick ti making both middle towers to fall on the first shot is to hit the glass support beam holding the first tower’s base, while not htting the glass base of the second. Split as late as possible to ensure that to happen.
2. the videos’s first shot. If the first blue bird got rid of the left side, disregard this step.
3. Go high and split htting all right pig. If the right tower still remains, use the blue birds to push in onto the pigs instead.

Likewise, this level is hard and requires some luck especially for the first shot. Patience is the key to get high scores on this level.

Works well. Managed to get 105k though your score depends how late you split.

I can just not break 110k, so I started looking on YouTube for tips. Interesting strategy here

Was able to improve my score with a couple K. Not sure how to get another 10k out of this unless people are one- birding this level somehow.

I actually split them right as it leaves the catapult, 109k so far. 2 birds.

Okay, started around 104k and now imrpoved to 115k. As I said before, two birds. Pull the first one back and use the next sitting birds as your guidance. Pull should just be to the left of it, and split right after launch. Each bird should hit one of the three sections of glass. Launch second bird using the exact same trajectory and split. May take some retries (-;

Good luck!

Thanks for the tip here pointdexter.. Took a few hundred tries but it finally paid off. The 2 bird method is the only way to crack the top 100 here.
My only tip here on frustrating levels like these is take a break and go back to them later. That always seems to work for me.

Funny how that works, isn’t it? I can’t tell you how many times I have spent hours trying to get a good score. Then, after a break, I will get it on the first or second shot!

Thanks @Kelani ~ I find it amusing how on one day , and the next day that “Fabulous Fling” will return a respectable score improvement often early in the Challenge, and the next day you can’t seem to buy a 100-point betterment to your score for the Challenge. That was the case for me in the Challenge a few days ago when I couldn’t even match the average score for the level so having a severe case of “AB-Embarrassment” I didn’t bother posting a score. Sometimes it’s just easier to pretend to be too busy working…..

This is definitely the way to go. It takes a lot of practice, but the payoff is worth it. The challenge for me was getting the angle of the first bird right, together with the timing of the split. Small changes end up with disappointing results.

My best score so far, 113750, still took three birds. But to me that proves the value of this tactic.

Thanks @pointdexter5 for the video. Improved up to 116k using 3 birds. I split the blues in about the same spot as the video, & got lucky with great destruction after the first 2 shots. The 2 central towers were mostly destroyed, & I was left with 1 wee pig on the far right sitting on a glass plank, & a score of 95k.
Sent the 3rd blue on a high lob to the right, splitting when over the right side.
The glass in this level seems unusually strong, stone can fall off the towers onto the planks & sometimes they barely crack.

108720 1st shot like video,
2nd up and to towards the right tower, and knocked some of it down, 1st tower shaking. 3rd shot up and towards what is left of the right tall tower, and splitting to where two BB’s hit the tower, and the other hits the blue ice/glass/whatever. The left and right towers(both shaking)fell and got the extra points.

IMO the hardest level on Angrybirds! Took me forever to get a top 300 score. Tried everything, but the method shown in the video above worked for me (with a lot of luck).

@pointdexter5 Thank you for the research on the strategy from You Tube. It works great for a 2 bird solution. On the first launch, activate the bb right as they leave the sling. One outcome is that the pigs on the left of the first structure are gone. If this occurs activate the second launch of the bb a little higher so they sail more to the right side to do the final damage to the pigs and structure. Picked up 16k in points.

This is my first time commenting. I’ve played this level nearly a thousand times before I found this site. Using the original video,I could not get more than 100,000 points. After viewing the post by Pointdexter5, I finally got a one-bird solution to work. I split the bird right out of the slingshot,and took out nearly everything. I’ve tried to best my score- 125,850- several times. I can come close, but can’t seem to better it.

@meanguy – Where do you hit that you can break both centre ice bridges with one bird?

Profile photo of meanguyRank: Gold Flinger with 8305 points
By meanguy (@meanguy)Score: 125,850

@cjcp- The best advice I can give you is to check out the video posted above by @pointdexter5. The only change I made was to split the Blue Birds right after launch. The bird farthest right has to just barely clear the far fight tower. All 3 birds must break an ice piece upon coming down. Then it was just sit & watch as the bridge slowly fell in on itself. I really hate to say it,but this was as much luck as it was skill. I played the same shot hundreds of times to get my score. I’ve replayed it hundreds of times more since then & I’ve come close, but haven’t been able to get higher. I hope this helps.
Happy flinging.

It was easier for me and I actually got more points by attacking the middle first, which made both the inner left and right tower blocks to collapse inwards. The next bluebird I shot straight up and split right above the glass to take out the two left pigs and more blocks from the left tower fell. Then a high lob to the far right to take out glass and the rest of the pigs and a couple more blocks from the right tower.

@Admins- I just received an email from ABN stating that my high score in Mighty Hoax 5-20 had been beaten, by nearly 11,000 points, by a player identified as kitter. A score that high is not possible without the use of a power-up. This players profile is only a couple of days old, yet they’ve already claimed 2 high scores. I think the Admins need to look into this.

I have vivid memories of two nightmare levels for me when I first started playing AB. This was one of them. The strategy discussed above is obviously the one to use and after hundreds of flings I finally managed to increase my score by 2K. Time to put this nightmare to bed.

Only a 2-birder for me but managed to get a lot of destruction. Splitting right after launch definitely seems to help.
