Angry Birds Ham ‘Em High 3 Star Walkthrough Level 13-3

Our strategy for Ham ‘em High level 13-3 is to loft the Yellow bird nearly vertically, speeding downward through the gap in the middle of the level. It is important to detonate the TNT next to the trio of piglets, and beneficial to trigger the trio of TNTs as well! Fling the Boomerang bird straight ahead to blast the left TNT and clear all remaining pigs. The score in the video below is 79,090.

Does anyone know how to get total destruction on this level? I’m almost done with total destruction through the entire game. I have only 5 more sections until I’m done. Any help? I’m stuck at 98%.

I agree with that, 13-3 is the hardest mighty eagle level.
Even Fujitoast, the video maker, admitted it.

Never mind! I got it and now I own 100% total angry bird destruction! All levels!

How do you beat it without the mighty eagle? Unfortunately I have an android & I don’t have the mighty eagle…

You don’t use the Mighty Eagle to beat levels. It’s a separate game within the game. To beat this level with 3 stars you’ll need to watch the video walkthrough or find a different method.

99%… Can’t get this level.. I’m down to this one and 9-9.. Can’t get them….

After MANY tries, I just got 80490 on this for 3 stars.
I shot the first yellow bird low along the ground, clearing out all the pigs to about the middle.
I lobbed the green bird into the notch behind the pig perched up top, clearing out all obects in the perch.
I then lobbed the black bird through the opening, got a pretty good skip to the right, and when he exploded, cleared almost everything left on the screen, including the explosives out to the right.

Nothing special here but I got 84,360 using the method in the video. I tried and tried to do the yellow along the ground first then the boomerang bird at the top but still always ended up having to use the black bird to kill the final few birds down below. I maxes out around 82K with that method. Good luck!

By Doughboy

I’ve successfully gotten the level done with two birds. The yellow along the ground first, then the boomerang bird up high. If you hit the rock a glancing blow, it should kill the pig up top and then propel forward into the the two stones balanced and knock them over. A chain reaction set off below finishes off the remaining pigs in the cave.

I shot the yellow bird in a high arc to hit through the 2 wooden blocks on the top of the level. The yellow bird tends to bounce and hit the TNT near the small pigs, bonus points if debris somehow activates the TNT trio on the right. Boomerang bird through the bottom. 2 extra birds.

It appears that if the yellow bird hits the 2 wooden planks where they intersect rather than closer to the two stone blocks, the yellow bird’s angle is more in line with the middle tnt, it sometime hits the brown stone beneath the wood planks and has a tendency to activated the right side tnt more often. If the yellow bird barely touches the base of the sling, the angle to tnt is more consistant. Minor adjustments may need to be made.

@kimmiecv Let your brain relax and it will come. ABs is fun and some of the ABN folks work as a team to help each other. Just relax and it will come. I am really not that good. The players who aregood are in the top 50 for each level. I am rarely there. Those folks do not post that often so average players like me just get by, observe and do the best we can.

@kimmiecv, if the Birds are misbehaving, tell them I said that from now on we’ll use spudcannons instead of slings, you’ll see how fast they straighten up afterwards.

I just went back to improve my score on this level, and managed to jump from below-average to the #3 score.

Here’s what I did:

Two-bird solution just like video, except first shot flung a little more straight-up and vroomed earlier. This gives it a little more roll to the right when it hits the ground. Trigger middle TNT so that the board hits the three right TNTs hard enough to trigger those. Small round rocks sometimes knock loose the two balanced rock bricks. Second shot just like video.

I’m still 2500 pts behind the top score. I assume that person managed to wipe out the wood boards at top left for total destruction.

4 all struggling there. 2-3 B, many ways, some placed higher.

Another one: YB flat, by ground rather and late vroomed (this practice to aim low is needed for film like BM 2nd shoot – I pass it too with 2 and 3B). BM back arc to: A. 3 TNT or B. wooden board near 3 stones. A lot of variances there (stones are important help to crash in-cave). BB – if needed at gray brick area.

Rank: Fling King with 4920 points
By Jim (@whoosher)Score: 86,420

Here’s another approach.
Use the YB to hit the forward edge of the top stone block which is resting on the top of an identical block at an angle.
IIf it’s hit just right it will topple the stone blocks to the far right exploding all boxes of TNT on the right. This should leave one pig and one box of TNT which can be cleaned up with the boomerang bird as in the video.
I think a one-birder is possible with this method, but haven’t achieved it.

thanks. good strategy. 89450/2 with it.
was speeding up immediately. repeat until stones fall favourably (using background for precise repetition). several 86k and 87k scores in an hour of play before getting my current best of 89.5k. more possible with it (bottom completely empty, but one of top stones didn’t fall that time; also the small stones didn’t hit the top-left wooden structure (that sometimes happen)). getting a 1-birder should be possible i agree, but although i got close several times i have never had the left tnt explode after the 1st.
had also experimented with reversing the shots, taking out the left tnt with the 1st, and bringing the top stones down with the 2nd. that works too, but was not more successful with it so settled for the strategy described by @whoosher.

This video is spot on! I ‘m going back to see if I can get the far right TNT.

First I tried the video strategy since everybody seems to think it was the way to go.

Then, I reversed the second shot, but it was too hard and the success rate was really low.

After spending too much time with this strategy, I though “what if the two birds are reversed?”.
In fact the reverse remi is packing more punch than the yellow bird, and is more able to topple the top structure.

So here it is: the first bird trajectory is quite straightforward and simple.

The second bird is a little trickier and you must hit the bottom stone. Like this.

Here is the resulting damage for my best score.

Nothing much left and still 250 below the top score but at least I know how it was achieved ;-)

This is the highscore screenshot.

Hope it helps.
