Angry Birds Mighty Hoax 3 Star Walkthrough Level 5-8

Our strategy for Mighty Hoax level 5-8 is to fire the first Yellow bird into the wooden triangle on the left, causing all three stones to roll out of the way. Use the next Yellow bird or two at horizontal trajectories to trigger the two TNT within the boat. Make those piggies walk the plank! The score in the video below is 86,100.

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 shot the first yellow bird with a high lob strait into the left TNT. Takes a little bit of practice, but if done right the whole left side blows up. Second bird into the right TNT, resulting in a score of 95320!

You even had bad luck on debris. Can’t seem to get below97k on a 2 birder. No 1 birder as well though.

Amazing @e-star. As I start looking to increase my scores, I keep finding your videos helping me out a great deal. They are offering new strats, so are extremely useful. I had racked my brain to hit 93K on this level. Ten tries following your video added 10K to my score. Look forward to encountering the next one.

As per usual, @estar, great strategy!

That first shot is very tricky (talk about needing to “thread the needle”), and there is zero room for error. If anyone is having a hard time figuring it out, you need to basically pull YB straight down as tightly to the slingshot as you can get it.

It’s amazing how much the debris can vary on the first shot! I was able to get the first shot several times, and most times ended with scores in the mid 90s. I had one, though, that was in the high 80s. 100s are certainly attainable here. One shot clear? Not very likely because, even with the explosion for the first TNT, the second is quite well protected.

By TruckDriver (@truckdriver)Score: 96,420

The best method of lining up for this shot, at least in a way that I can consistently duplicate is to pull straight down on the sling until yellow’s left corner ( yes, I said corner, after all, he IS triangular!!) occludes about half of the width of the vertical riser of the slingshot. After launching, wait to accelerate yellow until he’s about most of the way down, lined up dead center, or nearly so, with the vertical axis of the helmet pig, then tap to start the party. Yellow should then quite easily drill down to the TNT, causing a spectacular detonation, with lots of attendant destruction.

Correction: Make that yellow’s RIGHT corner.

Gawd, one can make such silly mistakes sometimes…

As is mostly the case @e-star your strats are invaluable and have helped hundreds of players on ABN, I myself raised my old score by 4k+ a little while ago using your method.

I do however point out that this is a very precise first shot and that a lot of resets are needed ’til the main objective is reached, also worth mentioning here is that second shot, which also requires some skill in lining it up correctly, especially when the game takes all the planks it can find to obscure and block your shot as much as it possibly can. Happy Hunting!

@e-star thank you as always, wonderful idea & video. Lots of points in breaking the glass underneath.
I find it virtually impossible to accurately aim the 1st shot, once the yellow bird starts climbing back up the slingshot after you pull him straight down, I can’t really control him. Maybe there’s some trick to this that I’ve missed, but I usually just do a quick pull down, let him fly & hope for the best.

I am able to “thread the needle” but can’t generate the force necessary to break through the last horizontal wooden plank. I find, often actually, that on my iPhone I get less debris than others and there is less force behind the sling. Anyone else have an opinion? I’ll keep trying though, it’s a great strategy! While waiting for new levels I’ve come back to enter scores…it’s like playing from scratch. : )

I hate to butt in here @kathy, but I saw you were having trouble with beating the average so I worked up something for you. I was fully zoomed in. The first shot on this level can be tricky. What I do is pull the first bird straight down. When he gets close to the base of the sling, you see him start to “climb” up the sling base. The magic spot to release the bird is right before he climbs. It’s tricky to hit this shot, especially if you are playing on a small screen. The unwritten key to the first shot is the fact that the bird will lose momentum if it hits the horizontal plank on the mast of the ship. So the ideal first shot comes down just to the left of that plank. Just eyeball the acceleration point. The ideal second shot is the fun part. Pull the bird straight back. See the sling strap on the leftmost pole? Simply align the tip of the bird’s hair with the top of the sling strap on the pole and let him fly. You will need to accelerate as the bird begins it’s downward angle. I hope this helps. And sorry again for butting in. I just like to try to help.

@swelld I couldn’t agree with you more, I know because I’ve been trying to get the glitch on S-15 for the past 3 weeks without any luck whatsoever, it just doesn’t want to happen for me, so I figure if anything I’ll just have to settle for 1 badge less.

For those having trouble getting the sling to hit the magic spot:
Try pulling straight back and then moving the sling down towards the sling base. It seems to slide into place easier that way than if you pull straight down.
Looks like the beginning of the BP got purged. I guess Slim found it!. :D
