Angry Birds Bad Piggies Level 21-11 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Bad Piggies level 21-11 is to aim for the TNT on the far right side of the level. Do this by flinging the yellow birds towards the ropes holding up the helmet pig’s platform. This can take a few tries, but eventually you’ll blow the TNT. For the next shot fling the red bird straight ahead at the top right portion of the closest wood beam. The red bird should take out the two right pigs, while the falling debris should take out the middle ones. The score in the video below is 65,520.

I’ve taken physical chemistry exams easier than that second shot. :( Unfortunately, no solution other than that in the walkthrough seems plausible, so I guess we’re all stuck trying to make that shot again and again and again.

Also, the key to the first shot isn’t really the TNT; it’s the “bumps” on that slanted wooden plank. You need 16-17k to have a fighting chance at three stars, and you’ll end up well below that if you don’t pass through the bumps.

Difficult level. I could not get three stars by the original video.So I changed strategy….

I shot the first bird just under the swing. It took out the two birds in the wooden V, the three bumps on the slanted plank, and the TNT blows up the big pig on the right.

The second shot is essentially the same as the video, but bird bounces up taking out the swing then falls on the small left bird. Big pig killed by the long plank as in the video. This method was a bit easier for me.

Many thanks, @myselfiandme. I think this is a much better strategy than the video shows – probably a little easier, and definitely higher-scoring. I actually messed up the first bird and shot end-on into the plank of the swing, which popped the three middle pigs and bruised the rightmost one, but I figured that it couldn’t hurt to shoot the second bird and hope for some miracle. Lo and behold, the miracle occurred: the bird tipped over the left structure to pop the two leftmost pigs, and the bird bounced over into the pit on the right and finished off the big pig. I’m pretty sure this is somewhat repeatable, so the lesson is not to give up if you screw up the first shot!

Completely agree. After more than two hours (half watching playoff baseball) trying to replicate the strategy in the video, I changed to this and got 66,160 in about 5 minutes. It’s all about the extra points you get from the destruction of the ‘bumps’ and the wooden plan on the downslope. MUCH better; should replace the video with this technique.

All games involve a combination of luck and skill. How can two precisely aimed shots, back-to-back, be considered anything other than mostly skill? if I could fling two birds, with my eyes closed, and get three stars more than once in a thousand attempts… that would be sheer luck. True, two perfect shots won’t guarantee three stars; the randomness of the universe always comes into play, even in computer games. Luck and skill. This level just requires a bit more of both. How many games out there can make this claim? No offense: This is one of those levels that separates the winners from the whiners; the champs from the chumps; the cats from the dogs; the haters from the daters; the idols from the idiots; the best from the …. And I’m glad that it takes me more than two attempts to three-star a level. My hats off to the designers at Rovio for requiring problem-solving skills, dexterity, patience and a pinch of luck on AB.

@surfcow, surely you can see from your score and mine as well that it doesn’t matter how much skill is involved in the playing of this particular level, principally because regardless of how many times we skillfully execute our shots, the outcome of the game isn’t always decided by our skills, but rather by the game’s logic set, which dictates all possible losing scenarios before allowing you to declare a win.
In other words, the game will always throw you a bone, only to take it away again until it decides to let you win. Why else is it always necessary to replay the same game hundreds or even thousands of times just to achieve a decently high score or a top score if you’re a lucky individual.

Two bird three star strategy easily repeatable.

First bird under the swing aim to clip the right edge of the “V” that the two pigs are sitting in. Bird continues on to the big pig at the bottom. May or may not trigger Tnt.

Second bird clips the right end of the plank covering the wooden box with mystery gold thing in it. Bird bounces up to take out swing. Plank clips over and pops remaining two pigs and gold wrench

Two bonus birds.

If I’m to understand your strategy, you shoot the yellow bird into the slanted board above the gold apple and the bird bounces up and cuts the rope to the swing and makes it’s way to the bottom where it takes out the big pib. That’s how I’m reading it but my results are completely different. I get absolutely no bounce off the slanted board, it pushes through, causing minimal damage. I’m not accellerating the bird.

Did I miss some critical piece of strategy? Am I using the right bird?

@ohforfive not sure if you even care about this level anymore, but in case you do or someone else does, here’s how I did the one-birder. I launched the yellow bird just slightly above horizontal and accelerated about midway to the first structure. The bird hit at the slanted top of the right vertical stone, bounced up and broke the ropes holding the swing, then continued on to get the bottom pig. Meanwhile, the stone that the bird hit fell onto the two pigs to its right. Here’s the best part: the pig that fell out of the swing actually took out the two pigs below it when it fell! Guess the helmet did the trick. ;) Didn’t get the tnt to explode or do much other damage, but having 30k from unused birds sure makes a difference.

@hallieginsb thank you so much for the detail, this worked for me. The toughest part for me was getting the bottom right pig, you have to go through the swing at just the right angle otherwise it slows the yellow bird down & he doesn’t have enough oomph to get that pig. Finally it worked for a 1-birdie.
I didn’t ever want to play this one again, it was one of the toughest AB levels ever for me to 3-star, but I was only a hundred or so above average so had to try again. Sheer cruelty making this the Challenge ;)

Maybe I can answer your question: I was completely stuck playing with the actual Android version on my tablet, getting just a few points above average. After watching the videos by @comex666, especially the highscore video on youtube, I gave it another try on PC with an older version (4.0) – and what a difference! After adjusting the starting angle I quickly got 71k, and was a few times only short of 73k+ but it was only a matter of time until finally worked.
To get maximum points the 3 small wooden pieces on the right must be hit. But this is no garantee for success as most of the time the bird has not enough punch to kill the piggy beside the TNT. I got lucky when one of the pieces went down and hit the pig, so the following bird has just enough momentum to go through that piece and also get the last piggy.
Many thanks to @comex666 for posting the excellent videos!

Can’t agree more. The second shot in the video with the red bird could be a pain in our butts, but with the yellow bird it becomes rather handy (hit by the slanted surface of the second stone pillar). With this I finally completed the 3-star feat with 65k.

In addition, if nobody minds here, I would like to introduce a new term called the “time-out effect”. This means you attempt a level to no avail, take a break (time-out), return, and end up with 3-star/personal high/global high(?!). I’ve experienced this several times within this update, including this level.

Nissemann2’s strategy works, even if you dont complete the level with a single bird, you still have a very high chance of touching the three star threshold for sure. . .

And then like others discovered, the ramp projects yellow bird up, taking out other pigs in middle. Then I used (second) red bird to take out big pig to the right.

The trick on the 2nd shot w/the red bird is to hit the board in the center of th area at which it touches the tallest angles gray rock or brick. This gave me the best chance to get the gold wrench and it helps in not breaking the board so the board can SMASH the last piggie. Hope this helps.

Tired of trying all of the above strategies? During the challenge, I managed two one birders, but they only scored about 62,000 points. Very frustrating. Anyway, if you are hoping for an easy solution, I don’t have it. I do have a completely different, miserably difficult shot that might work. See the little board way on top with the rock on it? I figured it must be there for something. I’m sure we have all tried just shooting at it, which does nothing useful. What you need to do is shoot in a high arc and just barely graze the board. Yes, this is a difficult shot, but what shot isn’t difficult in this level? If you hit it right, the bird will skim along the top and take out the bottom right pig. The falling swing will take out the two top right pigs. The falling rock will take out the top left big pig and also probably the golden wrench. I have gotten that far a couple of times, but you will notice that I left out the little middle pig. That one was left, but it was moving enough that I think it would go with some extra luck. This is not a new miracle strategy, but at least it is something different to try and it might give a high score if anyone can do it. I’m still trying.

As everyone has noted, this IS a very difficult level. Kind of like threading a needle while blindfolded. However, as the saying goes, necessity is the mother of invention.

After MUCH frustration, I accidentally came up with this solution:

1. Aim Bird #1 at the structure with the yellow apple (?) in it. Aim for the topmost “triangle” (don’t know what else to call it) defined by wood and stone, accelerate the bird and hit the stone on the right. This will break the wood, hit the stone and cause the stone to not only hit the large pig and gold wrench but also flip over to hit the small pig.

2. Aim Bird #2 above the “pig on the ceiling”. With some luck you will cause the pig on the ceiling to land in the middle of the two pigs on the bottom. And with even more luck Bird #2 will continue with enough energy to hit the “pig in the pit”, thus giving you a two-birder and 20,000 extra points.

I HAVE gotten a 1-birder using this technique, but it involves the first bird to bounce up, after it has taken care of the 2 pigs and the wrench on the left, “liberate” the pig on the ceiling and miraculously continue to the pig in the pit.

I hope this helps.
