Angry Birds Star Wars Death Star Level 2-40 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Death Star level 2-40 is all about timing. Wait for the initial three Tie-Pigs to move in then when they are below the top platform, fire Luke up and destroy the platform with his lightsaber, dropping the blocks onto the pigs below. Wait for the next wave, which includes two normal Tie-Pigs and a Tie-Vader and blast them with Obi-Wan.

This one was fun and reminiscent of Rio, the episode with all the crates falling out the back of the plane, Smuggler’s Plane, I think.

This one is driving me CRAZY!!! Patience level lacking for me!!! UGH!

By DG47

All I can advise is to stop for a while have a break, do something else for an hour or so-not play games!-and then come back to it. Has worked for me on some of the more taxing levels-including this one!
If you want something REALLY to drive you nuts, try getting the golden droid at Death Star 2-18!!!

It’s a long shot, and requires a good shot and LOTS of luck – but I believe this level CAN be 1 birded.

After clearing all 3 oink fighters, both pigs on platforms, both stationary platforms and the 1st mobile platform, the next 2+vader oink fighters moved in along with the last moving platform with the red lights.

As they moved in 1 oink fighter succumbed to a piece of debris from one of the other platforms – then, as I was wondering what to do with Obi-Bomb darth-oink collided with the remaining platform, leaving one oink fighter and a damaged platform.

I think that, like DZ-4 in AB:Sp, with lots and LOTS of patience, this COULD be 1 birded!

SW DS 2-40, 91250 “One Birdie Kill”.. Yes!!..

This is a true story so help me Angry Birds!..

Intrigued by the possible “One Birdie Kill” mentioned by @CmdrBond in his earlier post, I decided to gave it several goes, as usual nothing happened even after an hour’s wait! Often, like we always do I decided to give it one more try before moving on but this time I asked the Angry Bird Gods for a favour, just one more time.
Well, while reading some “live” comments at ABN, suddenly my iPhone’s screen went black reminding me of my “old” Angry Birds Rio Smugglers Plane Walkthrough Level 10-15. That was some day, perhaps a few remember it ?

Yes the “One Birdie Kill” is back just like it was in the AB Rio’s Cargo Plane!! Drinks are on me!!..

My two screenshots show the 1st and only shot’s trajectory which has a 8-10 second delay after the level start to allow the upper damage (debris) when sliced by Luke to ideally fall and hit the lower TNT when more favourably aligned for max collateral damage to all things below. The other screenshot is 2-40’s new “High Score” for what its worth.

Have fun “shooters”!. @CmdrBond – Thanks for the motivation, keep it coming! Marc..

I should have read all the posts before I posted mine above this one. That’s a fantastic score in the first picture but doesn’t help as fas as strategy is concerned. The second picture obviously is a 2 bird attempt. After all those points from Luke (83,050), I would have expected your score to be greater than 92,000. My problem when I have a situation like that is that I manage to screw up the rest of the level. I hope that didn’t happen to you.

I’m wondering how long it takes for the last fighters to “self destruct” I was only able to get one to crash and burn after I made the first shot but the last two never went down. I’ve noticed those that actually got the 1 birdie haven’t replied as to how long it takes approximately for it to happen.

Indeed I do remember @marc987, that was some very clever investigative work you did there! I just started Star Wars, and when I opened this level, I thought, darn this looks familiar, I wonder! Sure enough, there was was your post here in the comments.

I started the level last night so that it looked almost exactly like your screenshot, then set it aside while I watched a movie. Stll no collision at the end, so I put on my PJs and went to bed with the level still running. Seven hours later, only one of the fighters is gone.

The Rio level took me a few nights to get too, so I will keep trying. Thanks for your post!

Finally got a one-birder.

The key is drop the blocks from the top platform onto the moving platform with the Keke pig (moustache).

Try to catch as many blocks as you can (it helps if Luke knocks Keke off first). If you catch two layers of blocks, the fighters are more likely to collide with the topmost blocks.

Then, just wait until the blocks fall off the platform as it turns left and right. Hopefully, they fall one by one and hit the fighters.

Debris from an exploding fighter can take out any other pigs nearby. So theoretically, one lucky block is enough to wipe out the entire second wave of attackers (2 fighters and Vader). But the more you start with, the better your chances.

@ohforfive
My previous high score of 83050 is what is shown. What you see in the screenshot is the trajectory of the first shot that took out the 3 oink fighters, both pigs, the all important TNT and bits and pieces of plat forms that was worth 35990. It took time for me to finally work out and perfect this 8-10 second window to achieve the mass distruction that is shown.
If you read the post from @CmdrBond he touches upon the subject of a 1 birdie and wrote, “with lots and LOTS of patience, this COULD be 1 birded!”. Well, he was right and I thanked him for his motivation.
Perhaps its not clear to you, please understand that the remaining 2 oink fighters and Obi-Bomb Darth oink collided with each other and self destructed. That’s why in the other screenshot with the 91250, it shows in the background the remaining 4 pigs disguised in their Star Wars uniforms on the jet. Thanks to them I scored the additional 40k. And, yes I love each and every point they gave me.
Perhaps all is clear now, give it a try and who knows, perhaps you too will have a good laugh. I hope so.. thx
PS If I can help you any more please post..

Ah, the memories of AB Rio against Nigel.

1st bird (Luke): I didn’t took the lob as in Slim’s video. Instead, I shot him straight into the moustache Imperial when the Oink Fighters are closely packed enough. Activated the (blue) lightsabre just on impact to clear the centre.
2nd bird (Obi-Wan): After the second wave settled, I shot him into the lower left platform, and activated the Force upwards, about 1 o’clock. The debris flew just right, onto the Oink Fighters and the TNT.
3rd bird (Chewie): 10k.
4th bird (Han): 10k.
5th bird (Rebels): 10k.

Total score: 85,430, 3-star. Not bad from a mediocre shooter. :P

Got a one bird high score of 95110!. Started by aiming on the highest floating pile and waited until pig floating on grey rocks was below it. Then launch luke and destroy both with sabre. After Luke score was around 36k and then just waited for the remaining three fighters to self destruct like Marc said. I have tried this many many times first getting just one fighter to self explode then two and FINALLY got all three fighters together :).

How long before the last pigs self destructed?

By theAntiJack

one bird did work for me, score of 85400. looks like more luck than skill but it did work…basically i waited until the first three tie-pigs were under the platform, use luke on the platform and let the pieces fall, taking out all enemies and hopefully hitting the tnt…what happened with me was the middle platform didn’t get destroyed and the other tie-pigs plus darth-pig floated in and started bumping into the middle platform. it’s one of the things i have always liked about the whole angry birds thing…even after a shot that doesn’t seem to do much, if you wait sometimes a tower will start to wobble and wobble and eventually fall over finishing the job.

@livingny i got 3 stars. finally. unlike the platform versions, there is very little, if any, variations between the pigs flights when you restart. here’s what i did for facebook. be warned, it takes a LOT of luck. fire Luke so he goes just OVER the first tie pig. ignite saber so he takes out the two ties and the mustached pig. the luck comes in here. if you’re very lucky, and it took me about 30 tries to get this, the debris will set off the tnt, taking out all the pigs on the level and most of the hoverpads. hold han at a 35 to 45 degree angle, launch about 2 seconds after the last two fighters show up. you should be able to blaster them both and hit the steel angled bit at the top right. i got 82,800 with this. hope this helps you some.
