Angry Birds Short Fuse Level 26-5 Walkthrough

Exactly the same shot, but with luck the deflating piggies take out the top piggy for a not-too-difficult 1-birder.

61220 with 3 birds. First bird into the front pig and his stuff. Orange to cut the rope and drop into the structure below, hopefully without popping the pigs before the chemicals can do their thing. Bomb bird to the pipe section that goes into the box, detonate on impact.

Followed your strategy except didn’t need to use Bomb bird and picked up the extra 10k for unused bird. Nice strat!

@Dmsral — Thanks! Got 67290 with your strat. Doesn’t seem to matter if you pop the left pig with the first shot. Second shot should be enough above orange flask that flask falls and breaks before you inflate OB. Bomb high on pipes going into wood block. Will release pipes with hopefully enough force that they break while falling.

@dmsral Wow, great method! After few tries I got almost total destruction with all three birds and over 78k! :D

Here’s a screenshot: http://angrybir.de/1iZ7QoE

Oh, and just to make sure, I’m playing on PC so as you see in the screenshot, there’s no PU’s available :)

The entire middle of the level collapsed just as I released my first bird. No advantage gained, perhaps it hurt more than helped. Will take a screen shot if it happens again.he en

@birdMeister — Saw the same self destruction as I was flinging the first bird. Please report any details in the forum on self-destroying levels.

Saw it for 6330 pts. Only little pig in tall tower popped. Did get 3*, but just barely. Not clear if you can get orange potion to activate two larger pigs, since they fell to left out of way of falling potion.

first red bird sent to toppest big, second orange bird sent to just below top tower and hit the pipe then bounce in the middle then orange+2 fused pig gave me top score. this is how i did.

thanks. use that to get 72240 currently (and several 70k scores, so reasonably repeatable). was activating the 2nd when right next to the two pigs to smash them into the pipe (not too early as then the potion has not done its work on them yet). hope they bounce back.

played that now for 15 more minutes, playing for the 2nd bird to bounce back just over the top pig, activating it a little bit later than before, say next to the lower pig. got several 70k+ scores with my current best of 75440 obtained when i got very good destruction on the pipe (top and middle completely destroyed). destruction of the bottom-left structure was good but of the bottom-right structure only fair, so more to be had.

Thanks to @genkik and to @vuelva. I was hung up thinking a 1-birder was required to get above 70k, I was so wrong!

I forgot to add, that the trick seems to be breaking all/part of the pipe on the right. I had the best luck by sending orange on the high side, so when it bounced to the left, it threw the 2 puffy pigs into the pipe.

Starting with the ABN video strategy, I managed 67700 using three birds. Went back and tried this strategy, and within ten flings improved to 75450 using two birds. Wow. Thanks.

I can’t quite tell what genkik and mockingbird did with their first shots. I knocked out the lower-left pig for 7-8k.

I got a nice one birdie score of 72270 which is currently Top Score with pretty much the same first shot as the video. Here’s a screenshot showing the trajectory and the remaining debris:

I just realized, The Middle Structure (Where the level’s only small pig lies)
Is the EXACT Same structure in level 1-1.

Any tips on getting total destruction? Can’t get past 98%…

@AMSlimfordy — I don’t doubt that it is featherable, and I can understand why you’re busy.
@all — Does anyone have any tips for the feather on this one? I have all the rest of the feathers.

Finally got the feather. Went back to strat in video for first bird. Second to left side to take out bunsen burner and left pig. 3rd to top of pipes where they go into floating block; pipes fell right. Sardine can just above orange mushroom. Some largish sections of pipes remained on right.

By Flint

Yeah, that has been the way I’ve been trying for two days, and I eventually got it – but everything depends on the tube’s behaviour, and it’s totally random.

It seems to me you need to destroy the burner, the valwe wheel and both the stone blocks, along with most of the rest to even think about getting near 100%.

Avatar of DaBoidRank: Explosive with 2030 points

I had a really difficult time getting the feather.

1. Shoot Red to break the little rope holding the orange potion. Let that fall, blowing up two pigs.

2. Shoot Orange to the left of the structure, destroying the Bunsen burner, the ring stand and the beaker, plus the wooden steps supporting the left-most pig.

3. Shoot Bomb so to hit the top part of the pipes, just where the rope holding the orange potion used to be. Explode.

4. I tried over and over making the sardine can land on top of the orange mushroom, with no success. I then tried moving it back a little bit, shooting in a high arch to make the sardine can land in the center of the two indestructible platforms, right under the place where the small pig rests above two upright ice blocks.

It seems to be important to destroy as much of the left side of the structure as possible, then landing the sardine can on the platform center. Following Flint’s comments above I tried to concentrate on destroying the red valve wheel, but when I actually feathered, the red valve wheel was undestroyed.
