Angry Birds Mighty Eagle Walkthrough Back to School Level 1-16

Here is our Mighty Eagle Total Destruction video walkthrough for Angry Birds Seasons Back to School level 1-16. This is possibly the hardest feather in Back to School, but thankfully @Sal9 is an expert and provided us with this video. Fire one Orange bird straight ahead, pushing the leftmost tower over. Then destroy the top of the right tower with another Orange bird. Clean up the extreme left of the level with the last Orange bird, than land the sardine can on top of boulders. If you have an alternate strategy please feel free to leave a detailed comment below.

At this instant, I have the top score; it probably won’t last. Unfortunately I got it before the leaderboards were up, and I think I got it while trying for the feather. So unfortunately don’t know how I did it. If it’s still top tomorrow, I’ll try to figure the strat out.

Any Luck with the feather? I’m stuck at 92%…what’s the trick to this one?

I don’t have feather yet on this one, at 93%. Are ME walkthroughs posted?

Help on TD for S&T 1-16 appreciated.
Ok, I’m up to 97%, but very difficult to even get that far. The strategy I’m trying is to take out the left side as completely as possible and land the sardine can about where the pig in the wooden box currently is. I haven’t been able to get ME to take out both sides, and if SC is too low on left or center, ME can’t completely destroy top right. Don’t know if this will help or lead people down the wrong path.

No, of course not. Can’t you read what I mean instead of what I say??? How about help on TD for BTS (is that what we’re calling it?) 1-16

@AMSlimfordy Hey! My comment was meant as a joke, forgot the ; ). I hope you haven’t lost your sense of humor.

I’m up to 97% as well…but can’t seem to get any further. I’ve tried taking out the front first and then use the can on the second tower, and vice versa…no dice. Any thoughts?

I’ve been trying to get the feather for this level for HOURS, no dice. I’ve managed one or two 99% runs, but that’s it. I cannot for the life of me get the level to cooperate with me. I’m willing to bet my life that the culprits here are the boulders, the one large one and three small ones. In other levels, these things have the highest “ranking” when it comes to TD, but I have not been able to both destroy these four rocks AND enough of the level to score the feather. It’s always one or the other. Driving myself insane here, starting to believe this is turning into another Season’s Greedings level…

Just my luck. I post and then continue playing, and I just got the feather. What a pain in the butt.

Best strategy I can offer here is based on what I just did. Fire the first bird at a bit of a high arc so it lands in the area where the helmet pig is at the base of the right tower. Blow the bird and it should knock out most of the wood structure. Second bird fired straight ahead to push the left structure over as much as possible while destroying what you can. Third bird sa,e deal, just wreck as much of the left side as possible. I managed to wedge my bird in a tight spot so it blew everything apart here, probably luck. When all was done, the boulders had fallen neatly into the spot where the book was under the right tower. Sardine can was flung with a high arc so it would land right on top of the highest point of the level’s foundation, and Eagle took care of the rest. Some wood was left, but no matter, most of the stone blocks were gone and so were the boulders.

Hope that helps some of you out.

@ncc-2000 Thanks! this worked! Have you posted other strats for feathers or 3* ? I still need feathers on 9, 10, 15, and above average on a lot.

I have all feathers recorded except 16. Still working on that one. Will try to post them this weekend.

@amslimfordy – I got the feather on 1-16! It took ALL three orange birds and then a quick hit of the eagle eye tossing the can to about the middle of the platform. Bingo! It took quite a few tries to get it though – very touchy level for eagle, but the big guy finally came crashing through.

Have been trying for days with this level for the Feather! I have got 99% many times…it seems I always leave one or 2 stone blocks, but can’t get 100%. I will keep on trying. Thanks all for the strategies I will put them to use and we’ll see what happens.

Just got it by using the @NCC-2000 strategy above…tried to clear out most of left side with 2 birds and destroy most of the right side with the last bird. Fling sardine can just to the left of where the middle platform…Feather…Finally!

By Gigi

Wow!! This worked like a charm, exactly as you described! I got 100% on the second try and there was nothing left but the platform.

Great strategy! I had tried for an hour or more before I checked here. Thanks!! Now if you could just help me 3-star the level; I haven’t been successful there even using the strategy in the video above.

By CurtisA

This strat worked for me. After about 5 days of futile trying I came here, read this post, and within 5 minutes had my coveted feather :-) Many thanks @ncc-2000!

Worked! Thanks everyone! Now I have all 20 feathers!

Mighty Eagle is NOT difficult if you know the secret…Need all three birds…1 Take out right side…2 Hit left side and clear as much as possible…3 Hit left side again as low as possible and clear out as much as possible…NOW drop the sardine can where the lowest a b c book is or was and VICTORY…This may take a number of tries but after a few attempts you WILL get your 100 per cent…Let me know how well this works for you!!!

By labworth

Just achieved 100% on the mighty eagle despite the fact that I had a clump of bricks still left (on the left side of the plinth). Previously destroyed ALL but one block for only 99%. Another level that irritates and makes no sense as to how they actually calculate the level of destruction!

Blocks are given a “value”. Total Destruction doesn’t always mean that you need to destroy all the blocks.
We also often forget that with ME, blocks are sometimes push out beyond the screen without being destroyed.

By Alex

NO. This strategy does not work at all. The can bounces and I did this level for 3 hours and I still can’t get anything above 99%. This level NEEEEEEEDS an update because Rovio somehow made the same mistake AGAIN!!! Find a different strategy. I already sent a email to Rovio about it and I hope it works. It’s not okay or acceptable for Rovio to do this.

If you are getting 99%, then this method is in fact working. You just need a little bit more. While this feather is challenging, there is nothing wrong or broken with it. There needs to be a challenging level every once in a while.

By Alex

I understand there needs to be a hard level once in a while and I get that. But this level is following the Season’s Greedings path where 1-16 in that part was so unexcusebly hard and you knew that and Rovio fixed it. And also the Wreck The Halls levels are all but gone on my device so they need an update sooner or later.

SG-16 would required days of dedication. This took me less than an hour.
“All but gone”?

By Alex

Well I’ll be glad to tell you that after a million times I FINALLY got the feather by some luck and Rovio had released an update that fixed the bug in Wreck The Halls. Can we be civil again?

Got it in version 2.5. I went higher into the gap where the TNT was so it wouldn’t bounce.

Finally did it:
1. Orange Bird high arc to the lowest ABC book. It cleared almost everything to the right.
2. Orange Bird right above/right into the split behind it on the left
3. Orange Bird to the left side to clear as must as possible
4. Sardine Can on the highest middle stone.
There were 5 stone pieces remaining and no wood.
