Angry Birds Bad Piggies Level 21-12 Walkthrough

Angry Birds Bad Piggies level 21-12 requires quite a bit of luck. Our strategy was to fling Terence relatively low up towards the second stone wrench from the left. If you’re lucky he will plow right through it impart enough force to take out the far right side. If this works all you have to do now is drop the egg bomb on the far right side of the leftmost tower, taking it down. The score in the video below is 103,080.

3-star for this level is around 90-92k.

I got 92880 and 3-star with a slightly different strategy.

Use big brother high enough on the first wrench tower to take out the pig and have enough momentum to tahe out tower 2 and cause tower 3 and 4 to lean to the right.

Use white bird to drop the bomb just left of tower 3 to knock out the remaining pigs.

If you get a lucky shot, it is possible to 1-bird this level.

After switching to PC, I got 107300 with just big brother. :) Getting the right hit takes lots of luck.

@brave1966 your strat sounds just like the video ..i can’t figure what’s different, i must be missing something?

One tower left of the video, @Kathy. :)

Not actually. The DESCRIPTION of the video says “second wrench from left” but, in fact, the bird hits the leftmost wrench on the leftmost tower. Which is the same as your suggestion.

I also got a one-birder using this method. Mostly it was the L-factor that kicked in for me! Woo-hoo!!

I used a different strategy: First bird low to ignite the first TNT and destroy the first tower completely. Second bird drop bomb in the last gap to ignite TNT on bottom. The second tower from right will collapse. About once in four it will take the right tower down as well. The “only” problem with this strategy is to find that narrow gap with the bomb. Works about once in five with some practice.

@f91jsw – I’ve used this strategy too and haven’t gotten the right side to fall yet but can see where it would work.
This is, however, a makeable 3 star using three birds because there’s a lot of destruction.

I did the same thing, but I had to use Hal to take out the right tower. 93380 3*

This was the only strategy that worked for me. Thanks! Terrance just kept smashing the top wood box with maybe some minor collateral damage with the official walkthrough. It did take some doing and practice to get the egg down that narrow shaft but it worked and was a joy to behold.
Final score: 99960


So much easier than other strategies. Took me about 5 tries but finally got it!

@bikket, I had to read your post twice before I noticed my mistake! It’s weird. Haven’t been back to the level, but I will. There are two options. One day I’ll wake up go to the level, shoot and wauw! A hole in one. Or it’s going to take forever…Anyway these pigs are going to be sorry they ever me… :-)

Hello, I am brand new here and was having many, many problems with this level. Then when I saw the video I tried it, but Red just kept stopping right at the first upright brick after smashing the first bird. But I kept trying and finally hit it right a few times but I ALWAYS mess up on White’s egg drops. Then one time out of the blue, I got a one birder like you, but only 101k.

By Tina

1 birder, but… Terrence wiped out all the piggies but the game just sat there waiting for the next bird to be launched! Major glitch!!

Doesn’t sound like a glitch at all. Sounds like there’s a pig still alive, most likely one in a hollow square.

Tina this happened to me also. I assumed one of the pigs from the far right tower got knocked off the screen to the right out of sight. I was like you, waiting for the score to add up. never happened. Still waiting for that big score also, I am at 96k yet. Good Luck!

I have found on certain levels on the iPad it will have this same behavior. What usually makes it go is to zoom in or out.

Or maybe by doing that I don’t see the last pig pop as AMslimfordy suggests. ;-)

Just like the video, but one bird. Everything just fell right. Is it just me, or is the TNT in “Bad Piggies” less powerful and just about useless?

Wow! Nice Score @stocktoad!!! And I thought I got a pretty good score. I got all the tnt’s, bags and the wrenches ;-)

I also aimed mine similar to video’s first bird…pretty much center of the pig. I just got lucky and Big Red ripped on through with quite a force. BTW..It’s not you. I definately know what you mean about the tnt’s being less powerful.

Just like the video, BUT: give it some time. Sometimes after 20 or even 30 second the right part will collapse.

I had the good fortune for the one-bird solution with the destruction of all the tnt, bags and wrenches. This one had some challenge to get Big Brother and the debris to fall correctly to take out all the tnt. I was stuck at 112k and could not get the left tnt to activate. Kept flinging and everything just fell inplace. As AA mentioned hitting the left hollow wood block with the green pig is the key. There is a “sweet spot” that takes it through all the structures. Debris activated the right most tnt. Patience and persistence will lead to a higher score.

106980 – One birder finally like the video ist shot, and described by a few others above. BUT, Terrence got caught atop a sand bag and under a pig in a box and ‘bounced’ for about 10 seconds before he died and the pig exploded. Kind of fun to watch!

You need a bit of luck with Terence but make the first shot as in the video. I then used the ‘Earthquake’ power up and it destroyed the last pig .. 115,110 ! I still can’t 3* Level 11 though … 63,750

What seemed to work for me, was using the big brother bird to take out all the pigs in one shot. Lots of repetition, to get placement on the first tower of blocks, just exactly right. Since I have a PC, my score isn’t transmitted automatically.

At first sight it looks like a funny level.

However, after reading the comments and learning that it was a one birder, the L-factor kicks in and it’s not so much fun.

So keep hammering the Big Red to the same spot for hours and hope for the best.

Oh, by the way, there is a sweet spot to hit that is quite often triggering the left TNT.
Here is a trajectory to it:

Anyway, detonating that left TNT is the key to 118k+ scores.

Here is what I got after flinging for few hours at the same spot:

And here is the highscore screenshot:

Hope it helps.

As today’s challenge is a Bad Piggies level (22-8), I’m also trying to improve some of my original scores on other BP levels. I’m wondering now if this level might have changed (t’s been 3 years since the last comment). Is the video method still possible? I’ve tried more than 100 flings now with slight variations, but wherever Big Red hits the top of the first structure, he’s stopped dead in his tracks every time. No toppling and no TNT explosion. @stocktoad achieved top score using this strat (brilliant score), so i’ll persevere if it’s still a viable strat. If anyone out there is willing to have a few flings again please let me know if you have better luck ☹️

@peejaydee27 Interesting…… I also couldn’t get the shot in the video to work. (I am not using the same device that I got the top score on) It seems the sweet spot has moved down about one block. If you aim at about the center of the top concrete block, you can still get the TNT and some toppling to the next TNT. The problem is that with Red on a lower trajectory, the one birder is (at the least) more difficult.

@peejaydee27 I gave this a try on my old ipad with v5.0.0 (really old!). The shot works, Terence often goes sailing through like the walkthrough.
I tried on the current version & like you said Terence is stopped dead. Looks like something has changed, making this level harder. 🙁

Thanks @stocktoad and @karen68 – it’s good to have it confirmed that it is not just my imagination or lack of patience! You’ve saved me from wasting another few hours of my life trying for a non-existent 1-birder. I’ll give it a go with your suggestion stocktoad and see if I can at least improve from my dismal 111K score. 🙂

As a follow-up @karen68 – I just digged out an old iPhone and it still has version 4.2 of ABO. That first shot is really easy and within 5 minutes I upped my score by 3K with a 1-birder. (I’m not preserving as it’s not fun using the iPhone with such a small screen – how I ever used to do it I don’t know!!) So it’s definitely been changed in the most recent version.

So, because I’m only 3 points above average, I’m forced to come back here and torture myself again, I remember why I really disliked these levels when I went through the first time; the luck factor is really essential if you want to get a decent score.
