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.

Nowhere have I seen a page which helps users to use their own images and names.
Once I knew who I was and what My chosen image was …… no longer , and Rovio haven’t informed users why these changes were made , or how to make our own decisions as to those choices.
FFS Rovio , think about your users for once!

By Dorothy Stafford

Why are some people marked cheater on AB arena? I am not a cheater, I spend a lot of money on these games.

By S

When you go to the ‘daily quests, there’s a quest for ‘claim your gem letter. There are two tabs, one says shop, the other bonus 0 of 5. How do you get those?

By Harry

Yes, I am trying to find out too. Anyone knows?

By Catbird

From what I can tell you only get bonus points when you purchase a gem package. On the gem package it tells you how many bonus points you get. On the bonus tab it tells you how many bonus points you have to have to be able to claim the bonus prize.

By Tiffany

You can get that by buying gems, it’s a package option

By Auntie Val

When and how do you get to use the bonus cards from the chest? I have a few red peppers, as well as a snowflake and a couple of ducks.

By Tipsy Eaglebeak

Why am I the only one on the scoreboard in the arena? I have read that people cheat, but I am a relatively good player. Sometimes I am in the lead and than magically my opponent scores very high scores. It is pretty unfair.

By Catbird

When you go into the arena or the daily challenge you will have the opportunity to select spells to take into the battle with you. Just click on the ones you want. If you select an option where you do not currently own those spells a window will pop up offering you to “purchase” them with gems.

By Tiffany

How can I tell what level my birds are really at?

By Mike

Under “Feats” There is one that says “level All Birds to Level 9”. Next to it, it says “8/9” If I look at my birds, they are all far above level 9. And what does the 8/9 signify? There are only 7 birds to choose from.

By Pearl

same as my question feat “level all birds to 23”?

By Bill

in the main menu, click on any bird. It gives you the breakdown of each bird. The level, the hat multiplier, and the slingshot multiplier. This is referring to the base power of each bird.

By Cj

But how do you upgrade your bird card? My birds level up by getting so many feathers but how do you actually increase the bird card?

By William Jones

By leveling all birds to the next level. All of the base levels match the level of your spell cards. If you find out which one is short and level it up, the spell card levels with it.

By Rodney

Can u change the rewards on the daily challenges?

By K smiler

What does the feat mean “when all bird cards reach level 23”????

By Bill

in the main menu, click on any bird. It gives you the breakdown of each bird. The level, the hat multiplier, and the slingshot multiplier. This is referring to the base power of each bird.

By John

How many levels are there ?
I’ve run out guys 😡

By Maricia Overly

How can I level up my spell cards?

By William Jones

The level of your spells card is equal to the level of your lowest level bird. For instance if you tap on any bird, they have three level systems, the birds base, the hat multiplier, and the slingshot multiplier. The base is the number you are looking for.

By Julie wiley

My son bought 800 gems for 13.99 using his iTunes card but He never got them gems. Can you look into this?


By David Gagliardi

How do I level up my spells? birds are level 10 or higher but my spells are at level 7.

By John c

What is the difference between card level and the number on the card. All of my card levels are lower than the number on the card.

By Bill

The number on the card in the combined numbers of the card level, sling upgrades, and hat values.

Why is there such a long wait for new levels?

By Michael

On the main page there’s a number just below my chosen character icon. It seems like it gets larger every time I play, now it’s around 295. What does it mean?

Rank: Sling God with 46560 points
By bernersenn (@bernersenn)

The number indicates that you have 295 unread messages and/or notifications. When you click on your name, you will go to your personal environment. Please have a look at it and it will be clear to you.
