Angry Birds Star Wars Golden Droid #6 (D-6) Walkthrough

Golden Droid #6 (aka, Golden Egg D-6) is located on level 3-17 of Angry Birds Star Wars Hoth. The Golden Droid is in the extreme top-right corner of the level, well out of reach of any birds. Ricochet Han’s blaster off of the miniature tower high above the AT-AT and, with some luck, it can deflect into the Golden Droid. Once you hit the Droid, you’ll immediately be transported via hyperdrive to the bonus level. The video below contains two parts. The first part reveals the Droid’s location on level 3-17 and how to obtain it. The second part shows you how to pass Droid level #6 (D-6) with 3 stars.

Manage to get the Golden Droid with the first Han. Just fire him as high as possible and his lasers will cut the bridge and ricochet off the structure at the top to hit the droid

@neptunepluto: Good job! I found it easier to clear the way and use the last Han to get the GD. Align the shot with the cross to make the ricochet more predictable. :)

i have tried it so many times but still could not get the GD.

can you please further explain your approach as I did not quite get it. What do you mean by “cut the bridger”? many thanks.

This is the only GD left for me, thanks again.

Same path as video but fire just a little later. If you can get the golden shrapnel flying around, it’s a 1-birder.

This is far easier if you fire the first bird at the top structure. The idea is to leave a weakened structure – not knock it down. Waste the next two birds and ricochet with the final.

Just came here to post the very same thing-target first Hans on the wooden cross, leaving the metal upright slightly stripped away. Ditch Luke & Leia, use last Hans as video. Managed to hit the droid at third attempt.

THANK-YOU, THANK-YOU. Was very frustrated, been trying this one for ages. Either destroyed the structure (sometimes with the 1st Han) or couldn’t get the ricochet right. Aiming the 1st Han at the wooden cross did the trick, on the FIRST try doing that, got the droid with the last Han.

This is what finally worked for me. Thanks!

By NoNo

I used the first Han to weaken the structure, and then the last Han to finish the job.

Much easier than trying to get Leia to remove the wood part, etc.

Plus I found it took all three shots to weaken the metal, so I could never get through with the first Han anyway.

I still don’t quite understand the D-6 level but I guess the goal is to wipe out as many rotating bars as possible and of course, everything else. I got 86,920 by just following the vid. It was a 1-birder and the last mobile bot kept circling around until it hit a rock or something and then it exploded.

By Kate Grace

Argh! I’ve been trying to get the droid for days & I’ve tried both the video & using Hans to destroy the cross & then the metal & nothing seems to work!! Has anyone managed to get this on an iPhone? I’m using an iPhone 5 zoomed out & just keep missing :-((

By Kate Grace

Finally got into the droid level!

By Uncle$Chou

Look for the vertical metal piece behind the cross and vertical wood pieces. If the vertical metal piece has 3 sections with the middle section being hollow, then it can be done to get the golden droid by following the video, i.e., use the second Han. If the vertical metal piece has 2 solid sections, I don’t think the laser would ricochet toward the direction of golden droid. In and out of the game to get the desired vertical metal piece. I used iPhone 4. Good luck!

It’s still not working for me on both previous iPhone 4 and the new iPhone 5s. Everything is textbook until the ricochet. It’s not logical. Gun in left + metal on right = shot ricochet to the LEFT. Yet the target is on the right. I see the scores and watch the video and it goes against what little I know of physics. Maybe the first shot goes through the vertical metal, second shot lifts horizontal metal without breaking through and the third shot hits the perfect angle of the lifted metal to go down the far side of the mountain? That’s a whole lotta IF, Rovio! Thankfully the Nest is here. : )

Carts on lower left planet will rear-end and explode at ~5 min for ~12K; carts on upper left rear-end at ~10 min for total of 29 to 36K. Not clear if total SD possible.

Thanks for the “rinse and repeat”! It gave me a laugh when I was feeling the same way as @missm ( and others ) was/were with getting frustrated. I read your comment and the next try I got it!

What I learned is to make sure with the first Hans you do damage just a bit of the metal post. That lets you get the ricochet later instead of just breaking the metal.

Any hints on the actual Droid #6 level as opposed to the Hoth level? I see 3* is 62k but the high is 89k – big difference with lots of opportunity. I’m guessing the video must be the only way? Maybe there are timing hints? Anyway, good luck for challenge day!

Hi @maiasatara I don’t have the highest of scores but seeing as there’s no tips here maybe this could help? Obviously the high 80’s are 1 birdies and they’re actually pretty easy to get but the scores vary. It’s all down to rinse/repeat luck IMO. I follow the vid method but wait just a nano second later before flinging. You don’t want him to hit the pig on wheels first. Missing the pig seems to throw more golden shrapnel into the surrounding area. It also….on most occasions….will catapult a TNT out of the left most planet into the revolving metal thingimigigs (technical term) ;) For the top scores I’m guessing these peeps got all or most of the spinning metal. GL!

@maiasatara, I hear you. Until a second ago, I was least improved of the most improved with a 2-birder for 77k. I just managed what’s been the elusive 1-birder for me, but only 82k. I actually flubbed the shot & split about 3/4 of the way to the gravity field instead of as on video. Four of the nine metal bars remained, hence the low score.

@mukistars5 & @peejaydee27 you are the only 2 with 89k, @catsnbirds, you’re 3rd most improved with 87k, so if any of the 3 of you can offer a suggestion as to timing or different aiming, we’re all ears.

Hi @justpast40 and @maiasatara. It seems that this level requires some precision angles and timing, but as usual, a lot if luck as well. As far as I can tell, the only possible high-score strat is a one birder. Fire just into the lower gravity field of the leftmost planet (I use the little stars as guides). I’ve found the best time to release is when the third outer metal “cylinder” just clears the bottom planet’s gravity field. If all is well Hans will pass below the cylinder as it flys by, and enter the gravity field. When he hits the storm trooper, wait a split second before activating. Hopefully you get a chain reaction. The same shot gives a wide range of outcomes and scores, which is where the luck comes in. You must blow all the TNT ai well as destroying the pig carts, and also as many of the circulating cylinders as possible. I’m still trying for the elusive puppy!! Good luck :))

Thanks for the details @peejaydee27. I do have another question, I’m getting C-3PO to slide under metal, edge along gravity field & hit or just about hit StormTrooper, but I’m thinking C-3PO is almost too far into the planet’s orbit when I activate, so here’s my question…

If we look at that upper planet as a clock face, at what time is C-3PO meeting Stormtrooper for C-3PO activation? Is it 7:00, 6:00, 5:00? Could it or should it be 4:00?

Rank: Master Slinger with 7495 points
By ChiefBumpa (@chiefbumpa)Score: 89,200

@justpast40 I used the following link as my aim point. There are 3 slabs rotating clockwise that you need to observe and prepare c3po to launch rather quickly. As soon as the tracking beam meets the midpoint of the 2nd slab, release c3po. Explode c3po just before it hits the TNT. Don’t be in a hurry to reset if there are pieces of c3po being pushed around by the carts. Sometimes they self-destruct. Depending on platform the aim point may be slightly different. Hope this helps.

Happy Earth Day!

Maybe this screen shot will help. Providing the outer cylinders pass by like I explained earlier, activate C3PO (not Hans – sorry lol) just after he touches the trooper. Should be close to the 2 central TNTs, which both must explode. If I used your clock face, somewhere between 4 or 5. Hope this helps :))
