Angry Birds Star Wars Moon of Endor Level 5-29 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Moon of Endor level 5-29 is to toss Leia onto the head of the top-left AT-ST, pulling the two pig troopers in the bottom-left corner of the level with her tractor beam. As the domino effect of ricocheting laser blasts, breaking branches, and toppling AT-ST heads runs its course, the level can easily clear itself. The score in the video below is 91,830.

“Over the Moon” Badge: Scores for this level have been capped at 250,000 points (approximately triple the 3-star minimum). Obtaining a score in excess of the score cap on 5-20 or 5-29 qualifies you for this badge! However, a screenshot is required, proving the legitimacy of the score. Please reply below with a link to a screenshot, else your score may be removed.

I use a two bird strategy. The first one I shoot under the top AT-ST and grab its joint which yanks it 90 deg so that it is firing to the right. It will hit all the piggies to the right plus the lower AT-ST. The lower one will clean up a lot of debrs by letting it fire until it self destructs. The two piggies nearest the launch are leftover for the second bird.

I can consistently make scores in the 90K range. Once, I lucked in with 107K.

I would link to my screen shot if I can figure it out. Its in my album, access is public.

I used this same strategy and had the bottom At-At pretty much destroy everything but the left side pigs. The important thing was to wait to shoot at the last pigs until you’re sure that all destruction is done from your first shot. It took a good minute or more before theAt-At was done clearing debris.

Ram Leia into the head of the top AT-ST and pull the other AT-ST with her tractor beam. The AT-ST fire will sever all ropes and fire at each other. Wait until points finish accumulating then take out the remaining pigs at the lower left.

@bluevertigo, we’ve all had high scores knocked off by someone else at some point in time. Just this world alone, I’ve had several knocked off… as has @yor-el. Just makes me shoot harder to find another one. Losing a high score doesn’t take away the fact that you’re a great shooter.

We all, (including you), come in here and look at strats, use them, modify them, etc. It’s just part of the game. Sometimes just knowing that someone used the same strat as you for a higher score is the encouragement you need to keep shooting.

Please re-think your position.

It is not unusual for a top scorer to remain silent, but I do not recall ever reading here at ABN a flat refusal to share a strategy for a top score. I guess I am not all that surprised, but it is quite disappointing.

Getting a top score feels good. Helping others to obtain a similar, or even better score is even more rewarding. Fortunately, many share that attitude, and without those people ABN would just be a dry, boring, leaderboard.

I agree. I’ve had 9 Topscores on MoE and the last one got smashed last night. I don’t like that of course, but it would never occur to me not to share a strategy, or just explain how I got a high score, just to hold on to a Topscore. Kinda feels like a betrayal of everything ABN stands for.

I really hope bluevertigo will reconsider, escpecially since all my nemeses (yes, plural, you now who you are) are faced as well with a unexplainable big gap in their scores.

For this world, there are quite a few levels where there are big gaps in the high scores. In level 5-5, @chiefbumpa mentions an anomaly where he racked up lots of unexplainable points and just missed a 145K score to end up with 135K for that level,(Of course he magnanimously offered up his strat). @yor-el mentions his strat and attributes tremendous luck to his huge score on 5-30.

This is a screen shot of a 107K score I hit last night on this level 5-29. http://angrybir.de/16To1Zx. Unfortunately I didn’t get a screen shot of my 114K score. But the point is that I don’t see where there is 35K of debris left. Since @bluevertigo has been a consistent high scorer, I can’t believe he just made up the score. Perhaps he luckily stumbled upon an anomaly here. Or maybe he brilliantly came up with a truly great strategy. How noble it would be either way for him to share it.

Thanks @ChiefBumpa. Your post raises an issue that is not immediately obvious.

Some high scores have come about in the past that are due to an anomaly or a glitch as opposed to a killer strategy. I had noticed the log scores on occasion but did not have the score.

The issue here is one of a subsequent release that fixes the glitch and renders attempts to reach such a score impossible.

Memories of the Santa glitch come to mind where users were downgrading to get scores!!

Not me personally – but food for thought.

Just wanted to chime in real quick. While I totally understand the frustration here, we don’t force anyone to share their strategies. We ask, but ultimately it’s up the the individual player.

I actually appreciate that @bluevertigo took the time to be forthcoming about this. With that said, @bluevertigo, given the magnitude of the score can you upload a screenshot to your album and share it here? Will be give us all something to strive for.

By goran

Hi wicket182, the reason I have great scores in boba fett missions is that I liked these episodes a lot more than the others, and when I get on the angrybirdsnest scoreboard, I had a goal to be on top of that. It took me months of playing, everytime I went to the toilet, standing in q for something etc.
I did not have time or wanted to play the other series that much.
Sorry for knocking you off the throne on that one, check out my score on episode B-2, very lucky but I think quite hard to beat (you want me to send a screen shoot as proof of the score?)
Now I like the Moon of Endor a lot, watch me climb on the score board on that one as well, reaching for the top!

Thanks for the feedback from two respected ABSW colleagues ( @alo10w and @wicket182 )! I have also noticed that on some levels the lasers hit the long logs and do not post any scores. Regarding the version number, I have an iPad with ABSW version number 1.4.1 I think the update that I have for the ABSW iPad was around the middle of September. I achieved the 135K score this past Sunday (29 Sep). Two days before, I just missed a score of 150K. Maybe the “glitch” was not corrected in the latest version, but there are a few scores just under the 135K mark.
Also, hopefully people and not posting bogus scores.

Ok – the reason for asking is that it would appear that there is huge score potential for a ricochet shot going between the legs of the top ATAT. Would be a fluke perhaps but this would explain a higher than average score.

Warning, long comment coming.

First off, @bluevertio, there is no doubt that you — and the others flingers from Playhaven — are VERY respected here on ABN. You should not question that. I personally have history there going way, way back. I know what you guys are capable of.

If you look at this from other players perspective it’s easy to see why your score would raise some eyebrows in that it’s almost 30 K above the next closest score. Tack on your desire not to share your strategy and it simply compounds. I’m not sure if that was your intent, but it’s to be expected. I have no issue with you not sharing your strat, but a screenshot should be forthcoming. That’s a common request here and no player, no matter how good, is immune. That goes for myself and the other moderators as well. Actually, you should be proud to post it.

Now, to everyone else, as I stated previously, this type of comment spiral is not new, nor will it be the last. I just ask everyone to give players the benefit of the doubt, and above all else, be respectful. ABN is no place for jabs or sarcastic comments. If you sense things heading off in the wrong direction, take a deep breath, step back, and message one of the moderators. We are more than happy to help out. We are a community after all.

In a way, this type of passion is to be expected for any competitive game. It’s healthy even.

I’d like to come to the defence of @Yor El, if I may. I truly believe he meant no disrespect towards bluevertigo, but it simply was an illformed message due to the fact that he obviously isn’t a native speaker of English. Nor am I for that matter, and my French isn’t as good as it once (well, probably never) was, but he states that he never could image that a simple question about a high score strategy would lead up to such a discussion. And he feels that if bluevertigo would have been more forthcoming about his strategy, this whole discussion wouldn’t have gotten so much out of hand. His choice of words regarding the silence displayed by bluevertigo may seem strong to a native speaker, but I for one can understand why they were chosen if your English isn’t that good. I also do hope that in the future there will be a little more understanding for non-English speakers. Especially since I am one of them :-)

I think the first bird is the same as @birdmeister at the top of the thread, the same used by @to-walking-tall.

Then with luck and/or skill the lower AT ends up shooting into the end of a log piece, racking up points. Similar to what can happen on 5-20 (and other levels???), as described by @wicket182.

Hope I got that all right :)

@mvnla2 – I would suggest you do some reading up, especially on levels 5-5, 5-20 and this one. There is an anomaly that can generate extreme scores. The battery analogy I used to describe how the log is clamped between the barrel and a second point, like a battery in a remote i.e. wicket182’s post on 5-20 is also a very good description of this phenomenon.

Like birdmeister describes in the first post here, hitting it at the nose, while beaming the knee of the upper AT-ST, will make it do a 180 counterclockwise. Then you need a lot of luck (or generate some by repeating endlessly) to get the setup as I got.
Good luck!

What little bump, which triangle and which balcony?

Patience is definitely the key. Repeated this level probably a thousand times. On iPhone, aimed at the little bump in the top of the triangle just below the balcony. Fired the tractor beam just after passing the hanging AT-ST. The broken log landed in sort of a v. Then I just waited. The AT-ST was firing at the top of it’s toe into the half of the log that was sitting on it’s end. As I stated, you just have to do the shot ALOT before things fall just right. I always waited to restart until the AT-ST either self destructed, destroyed the logs or rose to the point of firing in the air.

A few more details on how to make this work. Release Leis as the second laser reaches the tree directly in front of her. This coupled with the correct trajectory will almost always cause her to be bounced backwards which is critical. Restart if she does not bounce and land on the hill. Best results are achieved if the AT-ST ends up firing into the gap with the half logs in sort of a v. Resist the temptation to restart when it is firing down hitting nothing. Over time it should start to slowly rise and begin to shoot it’s legs. Restart if it destroys itself. Occasionally it will survive and begin to score from the left log half. Once the left log is destroyed along with the lower leg it will have another period of firing with no score. Eventually, it will rise enough to either destroy itself (restart) or begin scoring from the log standing on it’s end. This is where the great points come from. This a bit complicated and is probably best done while watching TV so you can sit it aside and just wait. It gets a bit boring watching it fire and not score. This is very repeatable, as @bluevertigo stated you just have to have patience. Over a period of three hours I repeated this probably a dozen times with varying results. Minimum score was around 140k with two times in excess of 200k. My best result was 277,000, this score had some extra at the end when I fired Leia into the bottom AT-ST while picking up the two left pigs with the tractor beam. The AT-ST shifted and destroyed the intact left log before timing out. I hope this helps.

The trajectory in the screen capture is the second shot.

I almost gave up dozens of times, I would play this level a while then just move on to a different level. We have experienced what appeared to be unbeatable scores at least twice on this level, first bluevertigo then cydog88. Over time the gap will become smaller. I still can’t do level 5-5. Not giving up, but it is frustrating. Keep at it and you will get it. Remember, Do or do not, there is no try.

@wicket182, I think I might have it. It got in the same position as cydog’s first image, with the log halves forming a V, and the toe was in the V. Like you said, for a while it was just firing into the gap, but after a few minutes, it suddenly rolled to the right enough to hit the logs. But now the shots appear to be just missing the logs, not scoring. Will it likely shift again, or is it time to reset?

reset, I think you have it exactly correct. this is the part that takes many tries. As I stated in my Nov. 3 post, there are three instances that require reset. I always waited to restart until the AT-ST either self destructed, destroyed the logs or rose to the point of firing in the air.

After hundreds of hours on this level, the v is not super important. The important thing is that after the initial phase the at-st is positioned sort of firing into the gap. It will fire into it’s leg for a little then fire with no score. Now you just wait, it will either start to rise and fire into the log which should be positioned on the hill or destroy itself. The tractor beam is fired as soon as you pass the hanging at-st.
