Angry Birds Star Wars Death Star 2 Level 6-30 Walkthrough

Boss fight! Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Death Star 2 level 6-30 is to fling Luke above the first moving platform, followed quickly by Obi-Wan pushing the blocks immediately in front of the slingshot platform. Keep the pace up, launching Leia as soon as possible toward Emperor and pulling the wooden wheels in the top-right corner. Hopefully Emperor will be hanging on by only a thread, thereby arming Lard Vader for the finishing touch! Vader can be flung multiple times until the Emperor is popped, so get some extra damage points before destroying the Empire. The score in the video below is 73,880.

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.

What do you mean Vader can be flung multiple times? Does this mean you need to use PUs to pass this level???

Nope. Just don’t take out the Emperor with the first fling and Vader will return to the slingshot.

This level is tough to finish with one bird, but it can be.Fling jedi on sidious so that uses his electricity to push you up near the metal ball.You need to use his lightsaber there so that both the metal balls and the small wooden blocks fall on sidious.Make them fall on him so that his electricity is over and then they fall on him.

I played this just like the video.
Killed the Emperor with the second bird so I didn’t need to throw Lea.
The second shot covered the Emperor with blocks and he disintegrated.
I flung one Vader high into the ceiling and then killed the emperor with the second, so there are more points out there.

This level definitely takes some patience & is perhaps one of the most frustrating as I really didn’t understand exactly what it was that “I” needed to do to get Vader in the slingshot. Other than aiming as shown, it seems so hit & miss & so …. dependent on luck. I did manage a 2-birder for 83460 on Android phone & not immediately launching Leia paid off this time. I’m done with this as I don’t see 100k in my future, let alone the 118500 currently needed for TopScore.

@justpast40 you really have to spend a lot of time and be very lucky to get a 100K score or higher. Look at the video down below (can’t recall the players name). First you have to get the emporer zapped and vader in the sling with one bird. Takes MANY attempts, and luck and a perfect shot are required. Then you have to be willing to chip away at every single piece of debris, and launch vader to where he can find debris under the platform. Again, watch the video. Finally, some random chance will have vader return to the sling after you finally use him to destroy the emporer. Another piece of luck required. I have played this level a lot. Every time I think I reach the high, and come to find it has been beaten. A very tough level. You should be pretty pleased with your score.

Self-destruction, anyone? if you see anything please report in forum on Self-destroying Levels.
Had this level open while doing other things and out to the corner of my eye, noticed a block fall off. Started level again and noticed that blocks on both moving platforms shift a little with each change in direction. Went away for a while and came back to a whopping 300 pts and several blocks missing from both platforms. Not clear if this will help or hurt, because you can’t dump them on the Emperor.

What I have noticed is that sometimes the Emperor is more docile than others.
Sometimes he aggressively pushes all the blocks away with his lasers and other times his lasers are much less active.
If he happens to be in aggressive mode you will have a much harder time wiping him out.

The red squares will clearly mark his power if he goes without harm for too long then he will start to recharge. The only way to lower his power is to make him use it he will then be harm able. If he reaches full power he will shoot lightning randomly then spin up or down.

First Try-Second try – Fling Vader up to drop the boulders and clean the debrises.
Third try- Vader to the Emperor. Use his force to pop Emperor. Luckily, Vader got back to the slingshot. It costs 50k bonus (Vader,Leia,Han Solo, Chewbacca, Rebel Pilots)

90k is 2 birds to release Vader. Once you release Vader – fire him as many times as you wish to clear the screen with the final shot to knock out the emperor pig. The two shot method is easier said than done but the method has been described. Persevere.

100k+ is this strategy with one bird. Due to the lack of generosity of those who have achieved this score, I will speculate that it is a one bird to release Vader. I suspect that the stone on the chain falls and is electrified to smash down on the emperor pig. My guess is to wait until that happens before firing bird 2. This is what gave me my current score of 91k.

Hope this helps.

And the emperor will push them into the hatch that the video uses Leia to open. Then destroy every thing with Vader and finally destroy the emperor. This took like a hundred trys but I got the top score. So it was worth it.

Only advice I can think of is to make sure before you fling any bird that The Emperor conjures up and surrounds himself with his lightning. I suppose it’s every 15-20 seconds or so? Took me about 25 attempts to get this achievement. Not an easy one to get. Good luck!!

@richardTheo — Followed @scott20‘s advice, and got it in a few tries. In addition, it really helps if blocks, etc fall into the updraft in lower right. They keep coming back until the Emperor vaporizes them. The metal ball is also great. He will keep hitting it until it drops, hopefully into that updraft. It takes a lot of hits to destroy it. Good Luck!

Congrats on high score.
You must have gotten a one birder on this, as I did.

Can you share any details?
Thank you!

Avatar of wRmRank: Fling King with 4480 points
By wRm (@wrm39)Score: 113,030

Thank you.

My advices:
- push the metal chips on the floating platform over the emperor, like @angry-nerds described it
- keep your fingers crossed ;)
- clean up; if possible destroy the wooden parts with Vader direct without using the force (gives you normally more than the 300 points when it falls out of the screen or hits the emperor), destroy the rest of the ceiling
- use as many Vaders as you need
- practice how close you can activate the force without harm the boss
Now you should have 38k-41k points + 11.5k from the final shot + 50k bonus.
But where are the missing points hiding? In the pit on the emperors right! Everything what falls in it can Vader get out or destroy (wood). Everything! There are usually 3-5k additional points in it.

I found a new strategy that knocks the emperor more often. (For me atleast) Instead of pushing blocks on the emperor and have him push them in the hatch. You can just use Luke to hit the emperor and be tossed up into the hatch use his light saber to destroy the platform going up and down. It all falls on the emperor and Vader gets in the sling shot.

Avatar of TinusRank: Champion with 3560 points
By Tinus (@tinus)Score: 112,280

OK, for those going for the really high one-birder scores, some additional tips. First, make sure the first round of blocks falls on the Emperor when he’s still down. If he discharges and goes up before the blocks can do some damage, restart. Secondly, don’t restart too soon. There are plenty ways to get the Emporer finally if you got some patience. Two examples:

- if the right blowerside is overcrowded with blocks (keeping them from hitting the Emperor), let the Emeror discharge once. He’ll push a lot of blocks away, giving the leftovers a second chance
- if the Emperor is almost done and there is some debris below him / between him and Vader, wait for a discharge. Sometimes the debris will bounce of Vader back to the Emperor giving him the final blow. This is most helpful if the ball-on-chain got released by the Emperor, but coming up just short of final destruction

Basically you’ll quickly learn when a restart is needed (if you’re not going to practise your housekeeping skills with the second bird).

So, assuming you got Vader, now you’ll need some serious housekeeping done. Note that you’ll need the Emperor in the down position. If he’s up, you can’t cleanup the ceiling properly (so if you need the second bird, wait until the Emperor is down again).

The trick now is to get every bit of material into the right blower stream so it can land on the Emperor. The wooden blocks can be smashed just by landing Vader on it, but the rocks need the Emperor. Just carefully start working every piece into the stream. Pay attention if one escapes into the right hole so you can push it out again. Shoot Vader also at least once to the left of the screen, there might be a block or 2 there. If timed properly, debris lying on the right platform can be pushed away too (I once managed even to get one of the 2 large metal diagonal boards). Use a high arc to get Vader fall on top of some rocks that lie still on the right blower. Shoot Vader directly below the Emperor. Etc. etc. etc. And make very, very sure the right blower side is empty. Every piece counts, there’s no time limit (no Premature Calculation here) once Vader is available, so clean up the mess :-)

I managed a 94K+ score with two birds just practising my housekeeping skills. Currently I’m just 3 blocks away from the current Top Score, so I’m off. Got som’ housekeepin’ to do ;-)

By dbzealot

Got 117,260 with single bird. Aim luke so that his projected course touches the second ‘orbit’ of the emperor’s window. That should cause him to bounce off the force lightning and over the right floating platform. Light sabre the ceiling to release one of the round metal barrels en route to releasing the wooding blocks from the top hatch. With luck and all the blocks falling in the right places, Vader is released. With Vader, make sure you clean up all the mess as everyone else has stated. Especially the ceiling. Those pieces are worth thousands of points. To get the concrete slabs on the right of the screen, you need to bounce vader off the emperor and activate the force when he is out of the emperor’s range. Takes practice.

I’ve taken a hundred practice runs (take 2-3 birds to immobilize the emperor, don’t worry about the cleanup, just try to make Vader return after the final kill) but I’ve only succeeded a few times and I haven’t seen a clear pattern.

I didn’t find any reliable pattern. Only practice. Just to get “feeling” of the “moment he will return right now” :) Did many runs of the same trajectory just to see at what moment he starts to return and after that did final run. Also, I have an idea that it is a bug in the game and I wonder what game developers could say about it ;)

I like to prepare by pushing the emperor as far down as he can go. The fastest way is to aim at his bottom left chin, get tangled with his head armor and gently pull it down. Finish by tapping at the top of the head a few times.

Then I find a trajectory that gives Vader a fast spin after the bounce, almost reaching the ledge on the right. I activate the force just when the spin slows down. Start conservatively, there is no hurry (if you activate too early just once, that’s the end).

U can get 105-109,000 (maybe just a little more) from the cleanup after using one bird to get the Emperor. U need to destroy as much of the wooden objects as u can with Vader rather than having the Emperor destroy them. You also must get Vader back in the slingshot after you destroy the Emperor to get the extra 10,000 points. Do your best to keep stuff from going down the hole on the left, you can’t get it out. It is doable but takes a lot of time. Many times the fifteen minutes of cleanup I did was wasted when Vader did not return to the slingshot.

Avatar of SamtheredRank: Hardened with 740 points
By Samthered (@samuelredbird)

In order to make a two-bird clear, you will need quite a lot of luck by your side.

Vader can be fired down the hole behind the slingshot, but you have to activate his ability almost right after he collides into the wall. He can be fired several times, so clean the ceiling before finishing off the Emperor.

Note: shooting the Emperor with Han’s blaster while the Emperor has his lightning will not work because the lightning works similarly to Luke’s lightsaber, deflecting the shots everywhere (even though the lasers are more powerful)

Being an old dummy, I only got 64,910, but that was enough for three stars. If I hadn’t read these comments, I wouldn’t have known you can use Vader more than once. I used him the first time to clean up stuff in the upper screen, then sent him back again straight at the Emperor and held down the force button.

This may useful to know when trying to get that elusive one-birder: you must hit the Emperor exactly 12 times to immobilize him and release Vader from his power. Hits by birds, small objects and large objects count equally.

There is no time limit for the 12 hits. However, after a few seconds without hits, the Emperor will regenerate its power field.

When the Emperor blasts the power field out and starts to move, if there are any objects inside the field, they may explode and give an extra hit. Therefore, if you count 11 hits and there is a wooden ball stuck under the Emperor’s platform, just wait and see what happens.
