Angry Birds Star Wars 2 Battle of Naboo Level B3-18 Walkthrough

One non-character swap strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars II Battle of Naboo level B3-18 is to send Jar Jar at a low arch towards the top left pig hanging from the rope. A good distance away grab the rope with Jar Jar’s tongue so that he loops up over the top and flies into the bridge on the top-right, causing it to fall. Now, let me warn you, this level is extremely difficult to 3 star naturally (worth the effort though!). The key is that the tank blow up the TNT at 9 pm before it falls. It’s also critical that pretty much everything be destroyed, which includes the TNT on the far bottom right of the level. The score in the video is 100,110.

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.

Alternative Highscore Strategy

Since this level is so incredibly difficult, we have an alternate strategy to help out. Send Jar Jar just barely above horizontal (if sent too high, the tank will shoot above the first tower). Grab the rope very high, near the wooden plank (too low lacks stability). Release Jar Jar to go through the wooden base of the tower, below the tank, and into the TNT beyond. The biggest variable is whether the piggy inside the tank is popped. The score in the video below is 104,010.

I found it easier to throw the dynamite under the slingshot as high as possible to take out that top structure. The dynamite should land in front of the top/middle pile of bricks and when it blows it will take out the top left and everything else just starts to destruct. You have to grab the dynamite and manually let go of it as it starts to go high. I’ll try to get a screenshot of it. @amslimfordy

Ok @amslimfordy ignore my previous post. Finally 3 star’d this level. Slight variation on your strat. I actually grabbed the hover craft and used it to swing up and let go, so that jar jar hit the top structure. Then the hovercraft went down into the dynamite below and the top structure fell on the tank. 1 bird, 109620.

This is the strategy I used to achieve 3* after (what seemed like) hundreds of tries using the top video method. Although The top method worked, the most points I could clock up was 99k (very annoying), so I resorted to the alternative video strategy.

I made the screen as big as it would get and watched the video over and over, watching closely for the grab point on the rope and low here in flight the tongue was launched was grabbed. A few flings later and YAHOO, 3* plus above average. So thanks very much for posting this one @cali_mom.

This was a doozy of a level. A couple word of wisdom:
The farther you can get Jar Jar from the rope and still nab it with his tongue, the better. The blocks won’t fall down onto the STAP if Jar Jar grabs on at short distance.
The TNT on the bottom right does not absolutely have to detonate. It will give you a higher score, but it’s not really required for three stars. The building in the middle bottom, though, must be destroyed.

Can’t get to 100 using this or video method.
How can the average player hope to three star this level?

By jim

Send JJB on a slight arc. Grab the rope above the hovercraft when your trajectory is going down. You have to grab it close enough that you touch no structures below.

Swing up, releasing when you get a high arc that still allows you to land on the top structure. The high arc ensures the tank guy fires a second shot that takes out the platform with the tnt and also that pig before everything falls on him.

I got 101,300 with this strategy.

This level doesn’t require a strategy…it requires a MIRACLE. I have now racked up at least 8 one-bird clears with scores ranging from 93k to 99k. Still haven’t cracked three-stars, obviously. Extremely frustrated.

P.S. Anybody have ANY ideas for a character to sub in? Tried five or six, but all seem even more impossible than using Jar-Jar.

Eh. Finally 3-starred it, but only after hours of play and, I kid you not, at least 30 one-bird clears, including one that registered an infuriating 99,990 points. Memo to Rovio: A level so utterly infuriating that it makes a long-time, three-starred-everything, AB fan briefly consider deleting all AB apps (and other Rovio apps) from his device is not a good level…or good for business.

By simetrikekidne

Actually found an easier and much more reliable strategy. Send Jar Jar downwards and grab the rope. Make sure that you grab the rope not too late such that the tongue is not too short or too long. Now the key is to release the tongue before Jar Jar starts swinging upward. He will destroy the tower and roll underneath the tank to eventually blow the dynamite on the right. Rest is havoc, I got as high as 105K.

This was one of the toughest levels ever. I noticed that sometimes Jar Jar’s tongue would go through the rope, some really weird things happened on this level. I was finally able to get a one bird 105,320 with this strategy.

The second video ended up working for me (eventually.) the toughest part was getting whoever (I’m not learning all the names, sorry) to roll to the far TNT. Countless tries only to have him either not roll at all or get within 1mm then just stop dead and disintegrate. This was one of a handful in this release I was about to give up on.

Thank you @amslimfordy for the second video! I had tried for days to get this 3-starred! Finally got it after about 20 tries using the second option. I was really going crazy! Whew! Glad that’s over! 104,880

By Tomc

The second video finally worked for me for 104000. I had to sight jar jar along a mark on the big bird rock in the background so as to get a consistent throw. Then I worked on which part of the hovercraft to stick his tongue to to get the correct swing to roll him under the tank. This level was a pain in the butt. I think Rovio messed up on this one. It’s too much of an art to get three stars.

I also used two methods and it sounds like they were the same. I got 102,300 looping under and taking out the top right platform. I added 3,000 the second video way.

Used the alternative strategy- managed on 4th attempt. 103940. Much easier than first method IMO. Key to get enough pace in the bird going along the ground to blow up the furthest dynamite. Really cleverly designed level.

I’m sure this level has been 3 starred by some people, but I’m not one of them. What stinks is following two very good video walkthroughs dozens upon dozens of times and seeing what look like perfect shots fall short of the mark. Obviously, two things are required, a dead-on shot and LUCK!

IMHO, when one is at the mercy of a random number generator, the games become less fun to play. I first noticed this in Seasons (Trick or Treat 3-3). It must have taken two dozen seemingly identical shots before all the pumpkins were destroyed. I’m seeing more levels like this in the recent Rovio updates. In my view this crosses the line between challenge and aggravation

Yes, this is a tough one, but with the alternate strategy it isn’t that bad with some practice. I can set off the right side TNT about one out of every three shots. If you are having trouble, start your shot at a lower angle, almost horizontal. It is possible to do the shot at a higher angle, but much more difficult. Also, just because you set off the TNT doesn’t necessarily mean you will three star the level. Sometimes the pig in the tank thing doesn’t die, and sometimes the left TNT doesn’t go off. Good luck! @desox try the lower angle and see if it works for you.

fired jar jar as in second video aiming him mid way down the floating duck. shot top of rope late and held on til jar jar swung under and up between two floating rock sections flying high and landing on blocks on board. The tank shoots first structures and fires again into mid structure and 103470.

Finally 3 starred using 2nd video strat. Was able to duplicate but as mentioned could not get that pesky tank pig. Hovercraft kept dropping straight down but does not kill pig. Finally, debris knocked it aside so a block hit it and took him out …105k+ once you find the sweet spot (to get him to roll) Fire Jar Jar Hard..

This level is going to send me off the deep end. I have everything else in SWII three starred except for this level. I am guessing I have played it more than 500 times with no happiness. Even my current high score isn’t close to being a three star as I am only at 93,200.

I have tried the original strat and the alternative strat to no avail. When I try the alternate striat the bird doesn’t roll far enough to hit the TNT.

I agree with the others who have posted that this is beyond difficult and is moving toward not fun at all. Back to the grind I go.

Profile photo of StocktoadRank: Gold Flinger with 8120 points
By Stocktoad (@stocktoad)Score: 106,220

@laxietoo Use the alternate strat. If your bird doesn’t roll far enough, it is probably for one or both of two reasons. 1. Aim the shot low. The lower the better. Pretty much parallel is OK. 2. You need a long tongue. If Jar Jar hits the blue box on the bottom sometimes, you know you are in the right area. If Jar Jar never hits the blue box, you are probably using too short of a tongue. Ideally, you want him to pass not that far over the blue box and land in the exact middle of the wood legs. It isn’t an easy shot, but I just tried it maybe 50 times and got 4 one birders in the 104-105K area. It does work.

@stocktoad Thanks for the additional detail on the alternate strat. Jar Jar has been hitting the blue box pretty regularly. The frustrating part is that if I do get him rolling the right way he often stops just below the concrete brick edge and goes no further. Oh so close but oh so far!

I do appreciate the advice and encouragement! I really want to get the three stars so I get extra coins! :-)

By cowsaysmeow

Holy bananas…I’ve played, and played, and played this level, couldn’t even get 2 stars much less 3…FINALLY got 3 stars, thanks to this site. It took many tries of toying with both strategies – it figures that the alternate strategy is what ultimately worked for me since I had been trying a variant of the main strategy most of the time. Took forever, but at 102,990 I’ll never have to look at this level again. Thank you.

This is likely the most difficult level to 3-star in this game! It took me 200+ tries. A lot depends on how the debris falls and just plain random chance.
