Angry Birds Star Wars Path of the Jedi Level J-40 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Path of the Jedi level J-40 is to send Obi-Wan into the left pile of stones. Once he reaches the center, send blocks straight up. The goal here is to hit one of the lasers with debris, causing it to traverse the level. Use another Obi-Wan in the other pile of stones if necessary, with the same goal in mind.

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.

Upon completion Luke’s lightsaber gets an improvement, not only it emits green beam it has a bigger attack radius.

With luck you can get the top right hand lazer cannon to descend pointing the right way to take out the remaining hanging stuff and the 3 storm troopers in the woodpile.

@SKiney — Anyone else with a high score — This level is driving me nuts; I can’t even get to average, and my one-birders don’t even make 3*. Are there any more suggestions that would help? I’ve already beat the score in the video. I’m sure I have to do much better on this level to make score addict. Help! Please!

After many tries I completed it with Luke hitting one laser-beam with his lightsaber and sending it (with luck)against the TNT

By Kelsey

This level drove me, like all of you, to almost the point of insanity. I was finally able to pull off 96220. What did it for me was that the first laser hit Obi Wan and pushed him down further under the pile of stones, breaking a couple less stones in the process. Then, when I aimed the force upward, I had more stones to work with. Takes a bit of luck, but it may be useful.

I’m not really good at starting up new discussions, but I had an idea for one if one doesn’t already exist. It’s “How did you come up with your posting name”…or something like that. Do you have a discussion like that already. I’m having a hard time navigating/responding to discussion posts. Probably my age. ;-)

By bird addict (@bird-addict)Score: 98,060

Hi @redxm wish I had some good tips for you but my experience with this level is as everyone has posted. Unfortunately I haven’t been as lucky as some – yet. The only tip I can give you is to watch the video; Where they aim OW and where they tap for The Force. It’s really difficult repeating yourself with any consistency even when you try. This level is so dependent on luck. One time the laser took out all the hanging pigs, the silver disks and decimated the structure and all the pigs in it, EXCEPT ONE. Would have been a great score but after using my second bird it was only good enough for the reset button. So here’s wishing you best of luck.

There is a very good reason I hate levels that require you to have one object interact with another object in a particular way to do all the damage. It’s because I suck at them. This level has 2 of these awful requirements. Getting Obi into the spheres to force them up and out. And having 1 or more spheres move the laser so it shoots to the right and moves around so it kills everything.

As bad as this level is, it still isn’t as evil as J-39.

Actually I thought this one was fun. But I have a feeling that’s mainly because of surviving, and I do mean surviving, J-39.
Once I got the shot down to hit the very 1st lowest disc and then take a 1/2 breath before letting Obi use the force it was fun to watch. Lasers shooting everywhere, TNT blowing up, the laser blaster’s going to make it to that last piggie no it’s not yes it is oh no it stopped.

I too found this level fun to play. My goal was to get the stone balls/discs to hit one of the guns. If that occurred then it was a success. After that it was fun to watch the movement of the laser guns and their paths of destruction.

Changed the “blue” aiming spot for Obi to up near the right gun: to its left, right on it, or to its right. Did not hit it all the time with the balls but increased the chances of hitting at least one of the two guns.

Also found that if I would land Obi into the middle of the lowest ball of the left stack it seemed to move more balls into flight.

For this score used two birds, one for the left pile of balls and the other for the right pile of balls. Had one pig remaining in the wood structure.

Finally got an above average score with one bird similar to the video.

I got enough points for Jedi Addict a few levels back. I ended up with 3,294,020 and ranked at #36 ;-) All though I’m sure that will soon change.

This was quite an Episode. Thanks to All of you for some great tips and strats! I now have the green saber ;-) Perhaps I will go back and improve on some levels now…but that will likely have to wait until I get caught up on ALL the new updates Rovio has blessed us with this year!

Here’s a screenshot for the JA Badge @amslimfordy:

Score 101320

Really enjoyed this final level (until further updates) 1 birder, like the video, but aimed more up and right, both lazers got hit and took everything else out (like others suggested). I just wanted to say a massive thank you to the Angry Birds Nest team as I’ve never commented before. I have finally completed every Angry Birds game, 3 star every level, found every secret and all eggs etc, inc all the 5 free games. Although i only needed you a handful of times throughout, completing it would not have been possible without you, particularly some of the eggs in the original. Great work guys, keep it up.

1-Birder / Both Lasers Moving

In the video, after shooting the first Obi, a single sphere flies off to the left of the screen. You want to control this sphere.

Aim the first Obi similar as in the video.

Initiate the force almost immediately at impact and before the sphere rotates to far to the left.

Aim Obi’s force to the far upper left.

The goal is for the sphere to drop on the left laser. The right laser is usually hit, and thus begins to move, by the other spears launched by Obi’s force. The timing to initiate the force is more significant than Obi’s impact location. Once you find an impact spot for Obi, concentrate on the timing.

To score much more then 91K / 3* border you can make this by 2B or 1B. DON’T simple try to push stones to the right site. 3 mounts ago I spend there so much time fighting wrong like this. Change a way of thinking about this level. You MUST push stones up!

Now I passed it so MANY times with another entry points for first pile of stones:
1. Central entry: Between the first pair of stones. Note so those barrels has an central hollow point.
2. Top side entry: Top stone from first pair. Aiming line: 1/2 of lower half – between center and circuit.
3. Low side entry: low stone from first pair. Aiming line: 1/2 of top half – between center and circuit.

Rest unchanged: “Send Obi-Wan into the left pile of stones. Once he reaches the center, send blocks straight up” like AMS wrote. Little changes in tap point or moment how deep OW land inside makes an difference.

Left Fire Ball could be hit from a top side too by stone going higher over and return. It’s happens outside of my screen by I’m certain of it.

I made 103K twice with difference of 100 points. For me after some effort it’s 1B only level. Keep trying!

I definitely hated that one. A little bit too random to my taste, even though it was pretty clear that impact point and force direction and timing were crucial. Three starred the thing (barely: 91100) after maybe two hours. Now it is time to read how more skilled people did to have an extra 19k as compared to me.
