Angry Birds Space Golden Rover #2 (E-R2) Sojourner Walkthrough

Golden Rover #2 (E-R2) is located on level 5-12 of Angry Birds Space Red Planet. Zoom out and you will see the Rover on the extreme southeast of the level. Use the Lazer bird to reach the Rover by flinging south of the planets. Once you hit the egg you’ll immediately be transported via a wormhole to the level, which pays homage to the Sojourner Rover. One strategy 3-starring this level is to fire Orange birds just below the small asteroids to fling them toward the piggies and crystals above, maximizing your score!

If you need help, the video below shows the location of the Golden Rover and a strategy for passing the level with 3 stars.

Here is my PAT for this one.
1st Bird – Aim at the small ice block on top of the ramp. Activate OB just before impact so he pushes everything up and to the right. You want to make sure he leaves a pretty big gap between the two remaining hollow wood squares and their stone triangle bases.
2nd Bird – You need to get this bird as close to the last pile of rocks as possible and manually activate so the bird pushes as much debris as possible up and to the right to get caught in the heat vent. It’s really neat when you get it just right. But, it takes some work.
Good luck!!

High scores call for a very lucky first shot. Shoot though the near staircase just above the second step from the top and let it inflate by itself. This shot has to accomplish three things:

1) take out all of the crystals to the left (yes, all of them)
2) kick up the pebbles on the ground between the wooden structures
3) part the right hand structure, creating a pocket for the second shot.

The second shot blasts the rest of the debris either straight up or toward the steam vent, taking out the remaining pigs. Generally aim for the closest wheel of the trebuchet and inflate manually. The crystals to the right of the screen are out of bounds unless you get a lucky bounce.

I find that this gives a 180k score every 20 or so tries. My 187k score was particularly lucky and came after hundreds of attempts.

@burpie Got a question for you, sir. When you do shot #1, are you blasting through the square wood block underneath the staircase? I ask because using your aiming point he ends up nestled next to the first group of stones. When he self-inflates, he’s too far from the first structure to kick all the debris up to the first crystal pile. It drifts up in front of the sling, along with the leftmost part of the structure, especially that triangle stone block from the base which always drifts right onto the sling.

A Manual inflate just beyond the hollow wood block seems to fix all of these things, but I wanted to clarify before trying it for the next 10 hours. :)

@kelani My first shot is as you described, manually inflating just as it clears the wood block. Left pile is propelled up to the left crystals, stones just to the right pushed straight up to clear middle section. Second shot (hopefully not blocked by floating debris!) into the right side stone pile and inflate, as described above by @rdnzlrips82
Thanks @burpie for the first shot strat!

@burpie sorry to beat your score by just a few hundred points. I had a pretty low score to start with and could tell right away that the first shot was going to help me improve. The key for me was then getting lots of stuff to move toward the vent rather than up on the second shot. There is still a lot of time left in this challenge, and with all those crystals over on the right, if someone can manage to hit one or two of them, both of our scores may be surpassed before this is over!

I used the same method as @burpie, with manual inflation on the first shot just after breaking through the hollow wooden block as described by @catsnbirds. On the second shot, I was able to push almost everything that was left into the vent, resulting in lots of destruction. Didn’t get any of the crystals on the far right as far as I could tell, though. Here’s a link to a photo of my score:

Help, this is an official whhhiiiiiiinnnnnne

The word Challenge is an understatement. While I did manage to improve almost 7k to 180830 on Android phone after only a few tries with the help of @burpie, further success eludes me & progress on the iPad is even worse.

Despite reading all of the additional helpful comments, including @catsnbirds & @kelani, I’m failing miserably. I’m getting the 1st shot most of the time, at least I think I am, but even when there’s little to no debris blocking the 2nd shot, I’m obviously not doing something correctly.

Since it’s entirely possible I’m not getting enough destruction with shot #1, can a few of you successful flingers help by posting your score score range after the 1st shot?

Can anyone offer some tips on where to aim/inflate the 2nd shot? Should I be aiming to the top/middle/bottom? I realize there’s that there’s no exact answer because of the variances after the 1st shot, but I’m missing something here & am sure I’m not the only one needing guidance.

… and …. Congrats @hallieginsb on your puppy & TopScore.

@justpast40, I had a quick look at the level to jog my memory.

Score after shot 1:
Probably 80+k but irrelevant. There’s a lot of crystals & pigs that you can just as easily pick up on shot 2. The only points you can’t get on shot 2 are the crystals to the left. If you accomplish the objectives you’ll be in great shape:
1) get crystals to the left
2) kick up the pebbles between the wooden structures
3) clear a path for shot 2.

Shot 2:
You’re trying to wedge the OB under the closest wheel of the trebuchet. That wheel is worth a lot of points if you can get it to participate in the mayhem.

3 hours remaining – best wishes!

Thanks to each of you, @burpie, @karen68 & @kelani for your helping “hands.” I’d been on the right track with the 1st shot & had been clearing the left & middle crystals probably 75% of the time (when actually nailing 1st shot aim).

It’s the 2nd shot I continued to have so … much trouble executing. I’d tried aiming just after the 1st shot & sometimes launched while debris moved to avoid the obstructions as suggested. In retrospect, I think there must have been something wrong with my 1st shot in that I very rarely if ever had enough cleared to get a good 2nd shot, then again, I did manage 180k & not just made it into Top 50, but managed to stay there ; -)

Thanks again & hats off to those who knew of a trebuchet, because despite the fact I consider myself an intelligent, educated, well-read 55 yr old woman, I had absolutely no idea of the definition & had to use the “define” in my iPads Notes.

Thank you @burpie for the great detailed strat. Another fun choice for the Challenge.
@justpast40 the score range after the 1st shot is really wide, I’ve had anywhere from 45k to 70k, it all depends on the damage.
For the 2nd shot I’ve had some higher scores aiming for top of that pile of rocks like @kelani describes below. You don’t want to aim for the bottom as you won’t get enough push upward to get any debris & pigs left in the middle. Even better I’ve found that if the orange bird rolls along the top a bit into the notch you can see after resetting. The notch often disappears after the 1st shot but that’s the area. The problem is getting to it as debris often blocks a clear shot.
I’ve also been lining up the 2nd shot immediately & watching the debris, depending on how it’s moving I’ve flung the 2nd bird quickly before something floats into the path.
Good luck! :)

Just what @karen68 and @burpie said. Still, It is really hard to get the debris to clear enough to land by the trebuchet wheel. I think it’s just a case of finding a Plan B aiming spot on the fly and hoping it works.

What I do know is the one good score I got today happened when I inflated bird 2 between the cloud of pigs & structure 2 remnants and the untouched pile of stones next to the trebuchet. The inflation blasted the bottom stones off the planet (like a trampoline) and into the floating piggy debris. That helped push nearly everything to the top planet.

Congrats to everyone who knocked me out of the top 10 less than an hour after I arrived there. *cough* @karen68 @hallieginsb *cough* :)

Heh, @catsnbirds I know the feeling. Took me 3 posts to get a screenshot link right a few days ago.

I think I can simplify the aiming on this one. To the right of the first structure, on the ground is a tiny ice block. Aim right through it. Coincidentally, the aiming line matches the terrain. OB won’t always make it through the hollow wood block, but when he does, there’s a 50/50 of two things happening.

1. Bird flies straight through the ice block and nestles under the wood plank that’s holding the rock pile. If this happens, I reset. You don’t get good shrapnel from the first structure, so few if any of the crystals, and a whole pile of junk will block your shot every time.

2. OB hits the tiny ice block and bounces up-right into the end of the wood plank that’s holding the stones. From there, he drifts left a bit. This spot nukes everything and almost always leaves you a perfectly clear second shot, although sometimes you need to fire while stuff is moving to avoid having something stop in your way.

Shot 2, If I can hit it, I get better scores aiming for the *top* of the stone pile, rather than the left. This is the same trajectory @burpie mentioned.

@catsnbirds – your strat of triggering right after he breaks through is close to this location, just a bit low and to the left. With half my shots failing to break through the block, then half of those failing to get that bounce, yours is a much saner idea :)

i too examined shooting the orange bird threw the last step of the ramp…. i think though that going a little higher, thru the part where it joins the flat part at top gives you an easier chance to get all the crystals on the left (which is critical for really high scores).

That said, I’m working on a start where you let orange bird fly all the way to the vent and have him pushed into the last cavern where i then activate and shoot rooks toward the crystals, although that doesn’t happen very often as of this reporting, lol

good luck all

@tmax Maybe you’re a better shot, but for me, any strategy from the top step or higher was a 150-160k 3-birder at best. Bird 1 did a great job nuking the first structure, but never touched the 2nd.

burpie’s method fixed that by destroying the first structure and severely damaging the second, and my aiming tweak gets the crystals and leaves a clear path for the #2 shot, but 99.9% of my scores were 170k or lower. Only 3 over 180k since the challenge started.

The other burpie variants were the opposite for me. Impossible to get all left crystals, rarely a clear path, but when there was, awesome #2 shot scores :)

One thing worth paying special attention to are the triangular stone blocks and the trebuchet wheels. Each seems to be worth from 2-4k points and they do heavy damage to anything they touch.

@tmax Are you saying you activate bird 1 underneath the staircase, before hitting the hollow wood block, or after passing through it?

I think first bird scores with all the methods are usually between 50-75k, depending on how much stuff gets destroyed.

when I went thru the top “step” of the ramp i would activate when I was where the wood hollowed block is…. after a while I started letting it go a little further…. kinda how everyone seems to be doing it…..i had 178k and then decided to check the walk thru comments to see if maybe there was a way to get those far crystals I was overlooking…. no such luck

My problem was trying to get all of the crystals on the left side consistently…. I found that if you aim at the “joint” at the top of the ramp, where it meets the orther piece of wood… and then activate (this is a guesstimate) underneath the left wooden wheel where the little steel piece is then I had a very high chance of getting all those crystals on the left…. i think it sacrafices some point tho ultimately… and now i am of the school of thought exactly described by you (the 50/50 chance thing is pretty close, lol)

so unless I find a way to get the bouncy pig into action or those far crystals, I’m calling the current stategy the best :)
