Angry Birds 2 FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Angry Birds 2 FAQ Featured Image

We have received so many questions related to Angry Birds 2 that we’ve compiled a comprehensive FAQ to help provide a one-stop shop for answers. As always, if we missed a question leave a comment below and we’ll get it added. Also, don’t hesitate to head on over the Angry Birds 2 forum to ask question or look for answers. There is a ton of helpful information there. Below the FAQ you’ll also find some helpful videos.

  • Q. Is an internet connection required?
  • Yes, sort of. It’s required only when you launch the game for the first time (officially stated by Rovio). Internet is also required for an initial download after updating to a newer version.
  • What’s the max number of lives you can obtain?
  • Typically, it’s 5, but for some people it could be 10 as a result of testing the game. If you’re lucky, you can increase the lives from 5 to 6 via a special offer.
  • Is the card (bird) order always the same?
  • Nope, it changes every time you start a level.
  • What do Strike, Birdie and Headpop mean?
  • Strike means you completed a room of a level with just one bird, and that grants a bonus of 25K points. Birdie means you completed a room with two birds, and that grants a bonus of 10K points. Headpop is awarded when you hit a pig directly with a bird. Be advised that the bonus points might be lower in the first levels.
  • Do the changing levels have any impact on the score?
  • Supposedly not. Rovio officially stated that you can pretty much achieve the same score regardless of the structure layouts. Personally, the layouts have made significant difference for me.
  • Is my Angry Birds 2 progress saved?
  • It depends. For Android, if you connect to Facebook your progress will be saved there. For iOS players, your progress is saved through Game Center.
  • What is the Arena (video below)?
  • The Angry Birds 2 Arena is a daily tournament in which you compete against 14 other players across the world. Arena levels are endless, with the objective to win bird feathers and advance through the leagues (from Vanilla to Diamond). The higher your score, the higher your rank, and the higher your rank, the more feathers you’ll win. Be advised that an internet connection is required to participate in the Arena. The Arena is unlocked after completing Level 25. A first look video is below.
  • What do the feathers grant?
  • With feathers, you can increase your birds’ ranks (level up). Higher ranking birds are more powerful, causing more destruction, which means you can obtain more points and earn extra cards quicker.
  • What are the red and blue presents found in levels?
  • If you collect a red present, after completing the level you’ll receive either a spell or some bird feathers from that present. If you collect a blue present, after completing the level you’ll be able to send that present to a friend (if you’ve connected the game to Facebook).
  • What does the Golden Pig do?
  • Popping a Golden Pig immediately fills up the Destruct-O-Meter, which earns you an extra card.
  • How to achieve a large number of points?
  • Try to do Strike or at least Birdie shots while also trying to destroy as much material of the structures as you can. It’s not enough to just pop the piggies.
  • Well, there you have it! Now it’s your turn to tell us what we missed by leaving a comment below. If the question is applicable we’ll add it to the FAQ for all to see.

    The following videos were created during the soft-launch of Angry Birds Under Pigstruction; however, most of the information is still applicable.

How do I access spells mid game?

By Dana

In some instances when getting various cards, videos will not load and program freezes. There is no way out except to close the game and lose all prize cards. Is there a fix for this.

By Eve

Both silver and Matilda unlocked overnight without me ever getting a bird key, I got not tutorial level for either of them but nothing else about my game has changed. I’m on the same level as I was before. I played the day before and only had red, blues, chuck, bomb and terrence. This hasn’t happened to anyone else I know, as far as I’m aware, and I’m unsure about what could’ve happened.

By Andy Lambert

Why do I always have the same birds?????
I’ve unlocked ALL birds but some of them NEVER appear.

Which ones never appear? Note that there are 4 special birds in which you can only choose one from at a time. So depending on what levels you’re trying to beat, or whichever is your favorite, you can choose accordingly. I choose to have Bubbles (orange balloon) unlocked most of the time.

By Andy Lambert

Bubbles, Stella (pink one) it’s Bubbles I want to use. I’m now at level 360 I only have 8 birds showing even tho I have unlocked them all. Frustrating isn’t the word.

By coco1290 (@coco1290)

All of us can only have eight at one time. Click on Stella on your home page and it should bring up the four special birds. From there you can select bubbles to use instead of Stella.

By Andy

Cannot believe it was that easy, Can’t understand how I missed it.
Cheers coco

By Marie Feeley

Hats are unavailable for purchase. I have over 120,000 black pearls, but I am unable to use them. What can I do?

By Carter

I have been laying and enjoying angry birds since it first came out in a phone version. I switched to angry birds 2 when it came out and plays hours every day and enjoyed the game u til a few months ago. Now when I play reds rumble etc. when I win the first set of rooms the screen loading the second one stops and is overlayed by another screen and everything freezes. No controls work, the next button stays gray and I have to completely exxxit the game. Nothing is saved. Now I I have only two thirds of the game play available and can never get to the king pig panic. I am beyond frustrated. Then when I try to get help I never get answers or even acknowledgement of my emailed questions and issues.
