Angry Birds Star Wars Golden Droid #8 (D-8) Walkthrough

Golden Droid #8 (aka, Golden Egg D-8) is located on level 4-14 of Angry Birds Star Wars Cloud City. The Golden Droid is in the middle of the level, just beyond the steam vents. Toss Chewie very high in the air, aiming him for the second vent. Chewie needs to stay mostly vertical to reach the Droid without hitting the guarding plank. 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 4-14 and how to obtain it. The second part shows you how to pass Droid level #8 (D-8) with 3 stars.

There is a 1-droid solution to this level.

Send 3PO north, just under the golden ball satellite so that he enters the gravitational ring at approximately 11 o’clock.

Once he has severed the metal structure holding the top bubbled-pig, detonate him. With luck the shrapnel should take out the lower bubbled-pig and start a chain reaction that collapses the level taking out the PIE-fighter and the rest of the pork-troopers.

May the feathers be with you.

Used this method, thanks @cmdrbond

Pro-tip: After struggling to pop the bottom pig, I found ‘just’ skimming the gravity field, and then popping C3PO a split second after breaking the column worked well. Waiting too long caused it to hit the block next to the bubble and fall the wrong side.

The last load of points come from the left side collapsing. This was sporadic at best. I got it once every 20-30 attempts. I’m looking at trying to time it so the PIE-Fighter is on that side when hit.

And a 2 birder sees me to the top spot!

3PO as above – but the west side of the level did not collapse (although north and south were practically totally destroyed).

Then an R2 unit into the “weak spot” south of centre of the west side of the level and BAM!!!

Ok @Kathy I’m getting most of it now (WTH is wrong with saying the right or left side! Instead of north south east west southeast blah blah blah?!) ummm what’s south of centre at the “weak spot?” Did you get that Kathy? Like where you’d aim exactly? My R2 just hits the blocks that are stationary!! :( Man I hate being directionally challenged!! :/ Sorry for all the questions!

Ok let me try easier..
Send him up under the ball when he smashes through the top metal structure on the top of the right tower then tap ( i wait a half a sec) you’ll seelittle piece of him roll over/down too the cement block holding the hanging pig that should take care of that. Now your top structure, right and bottom should be destroyed.
The tower closet too the slingshot there a big wood box that’s the weak spot activate like about halfway through..hope this helps @Kimmiecv;)

My best 1-birder has been for only 90k, the bulk of the left (west) side doesn’t want to collapse.
Up to 94k with 2, using the excellent 1st shot from @cmdrbond.
For the 2nd I’ve been trying various spots on what remains on the left. There’s a spot lower down, if you aim into the gap between the rectangular block & the metal triangle. Sometimes R2 goes all the way through to the middle. He knocks down a lot of the debris as he passes through, then there’s still time to activate him as he reaches the debris in the middle for a few more points. Not a very high percentage shot, I don’t hit it too often but it got me to 94k.
A lot of points are in the round metal discs being destroyed when they fall.

I’ve also been flinging the @CmdrBond strategy which has improved my score but I’m having the same trouble with the left side structure as @karen68. I’m also finding that when I activate C-3PO right after breaking the metal column the lower TNT most often doesn’t detonate leaving the lower structures and pigs. Thank You to @CmdrBond and the many other Nesters for sharing your tips and strategies!

Came back for todays challenge and got a one birder as per @cmdrbond strat. I entered the atmosphere as high as possible using two stars near the SE of the gold satellite for alignment. Set off 3PO after a very slight delay after destroying the support. Very strong collapse of the west side. Not sure where the fighter was at that time. Two screen shots in my album. Should be an underdog. @sunshine @admins Thanks again @cmdrbond

I got once a partial collapse of the west side, but as far as I could see, it was not initiated by a fighter part, but rather by some infalling debris that had an unusual bounce on exploding TNTs.

I got the same thing as what @sglouk mentions. It’s a little stone cube or something, and it seems how shot 1 plays out affects whether this happens or not. Must be a sweet spot somewhere.

@kelani
I think I understand the process. You have two TNTs in the center. The NW one initiates the infall of the west side, whereas the SE one initiales the collapse of the south side. In order to have debris hitting the second floor of the west part, you need the NW TNT to explode first and soon after the SE one. This way, some infalling debris coming from the lowest floor of the west side may be pushed away (i.e. to the left) by the explosion of the SE TNT. I noticed that the relative time of TNT explosion are correlated with droid activation (if you activate it too late, the SE TNT explodes first, which is not what you want). Therefore, you must activate the droid as early as possible, provided some debris still reach the SE bubbled trooper.

@xebic88 If you’re not able to edit your videos, here’s an easy trick you can use to let us bypass the failed attempts: After you upload your video, go view it using its youtube link. There will be a Share section below the video with the link highlighted. Get to the part of the video that’s relevant, i.e. the successful attempt, Pause the video, then check the Start At checkbox to the right of the Youtube link code box. This gives you a new link which makes the video begin at whatever time the video is at currently. This is what you can post on ABN. We all really appreciate your videos, so for the longer ones where only the last 30 seconds is what you’re trying to show us, this step would really help us out when trying to view them.

Also, If you’re using PC and want to edit your videos, check out VSDC free video converter. It’ll let you edit the extra stuff out of videos, resize them, remove the sound, and just about anything else. :)
