Angry Birds Bad Piggies Level 21-9 Walkthrough

One strategy for Angry Birds Bad Piggies level 21-9 is to lob the white bird up and over the first crane so it comes down right in the middle. Drop the egg bomb at the last minute so that the crane falls to the left and the cab with the pig in it (stone triangle on top) falls to the right. The cab falling should take out middle pigs. Fire the yellow bird at a low arch to take out the TNT and any remaining pigs in the middle. Lastly, fling the white bird towards the right crane taking it down. The score in the video below is 94,290.

The video’s ordering of shots is not very effective. The first shot is correct, but the yellow bird should be sent to the pig in the hollow stone block on the right tower. This will take down the whole crane. Then clean up the remaining center pig and as much debris as possible with the third bird, aiming to hit the TNT with the spent carcass for bonus debris points. This strategy also allows you to complete a high-scoring two-birder when you’re lucky enough to get all of the pigs in the middle with the first shot.

@austinrhl – yes, this is definitely a better way. I also ended up with this strategy, came here to post it, but saw you already did. I got 100K with three birds this way. I also finished with two birds several times, but got lower scores ( mainly, because the TNT next to the crane did not explode).

Anyone else notice that the TNT from the front often comes back and hits the next bird in slingshot. Not sure, but if the YB is sideways (or off center) he doesn’t seem to hit as hard.

Anyway, followed a strategy similiar to @austinrhl and got lucky with my first shot clearing all the center piggies.

I meant the debris from the TNT (ice, wood) comes back and hits the slingshot – sorry.

There is a tnt box to the left of the slingshot. if you zoom all the way out, you can see it. I’ve hit it multiple times with all the birds and nothing happens. Any thoughts?

FYI there is no visible TNT box to the left of the slingshot in the iPad version even at full zoom out. However, I have occasionally detonated the TNT to the right and launched the first pig — the one enclosed in the glass block — to the left landing just off the screen. There appeared to be a small explosion before I saw the “green 5000”. Try it. Just use the White Bird to sever the cable on the first crane. The claw will fall and launch the pig. Let me know if the pig does detonate the far-left TNT. I cannot see it.

Did first shot much like in the video, but the white bird landed at the crane thingy at the right side, and managed to kill the pig hanging there. then I managed to get the rest with the second bird as in the video.

It looks like Rovio addressed an annoyance I had with some levels. No, I never contacted them or posted about it here but several others did. The tnt on the left almost always sends the pig in the block off the screen to the left. In the past, it would consider that pig killed for the level completion, but would not always count the points. In this level, I found it a bit funny to see a pig come flying in from the left, drop and die giving me the potentially lost 5k. I even had a pig spontaneously die while on the left side of the screen, just left of the sling shot. Saw the block land there and break but the pig didn’t die. Figured I would go for the feather because of that, but when I launched my last bird, while in flight, the pig died.

Nice to see that we get the points even if a pig flys way off screen.

sparty83, see imtheonly1’s comment above concerning TNT to the far left. I cannot see it on my iPad but have experienced the same situation that you described. Sometimes the pig in the glass box flies off the left side of the screen and seems to die in an explosion. Sometimes it flies off the left side and is blown back to the right to die. Confirmation from someone whoncan see that TNT box would be nice. Maybe Rovio placed the TNT there to ensure that the pig is doomed.

I can’t see any tnt on the left of the slingshot (although i do see some glass/ice). I think that Rovio may have put some code in for this level knowing that the tnt between the slingshot and the first tower would throw the pig in a box off the screen. I don’t remember seeing anything that would look like a tnt explosion either. (not saying it doesnt happen, just dont see it). I know there were a lot of mine and dine levels that the black bird would send pigs off screen and not get the score credit for them.

I just had the pig in the glass block land at the base of the sling still in the block.
I do see the TNT box at the left of it but the glass block didn’t get there.

Method from the video drives me crazy, especially at last shot.
I reversed shots in order to obtain an easiest strategy, even this not give so many points.
1)first WB high, to land on fifth pig (to left of the TNT). in 50% of the cases the stone triangle if rotate a little bit, smash also the crane. about 35k without eventually some points from middle area
2)YB into the left crane, destroying the left section
3)WB onto the left pile, killing the rest of the pigs. Final score: around 95k, but with some luck 3rd shot could be saved.

Scores above 110K are impossible on this one.I haven’t got the egg shell from 1st bird to do any damage,thus the idea of using it to blow up the TNT is ridiculous.I used yellow to push the stones on TNT and achieved a 2-birder,though the TNT is left.Also,TNT can never destroy rightmost crane.Inform me if I’m wrong but you can never get 2-birder and TD on the same attempt.

@thetoddman23 Yep, this is the way to go no doubt. Was stuck at 107k for a long time, tried this method in the past, saw the potential, but moved on to other levels. As I finished the new levels last week, and now am working on catching up on some previous levels, decided to redo this one. Went from 107k to 108k now to 113k round. Was close to 116k at one point. Could keep playing, as there is more to gain here, although the round number is fun too.

Guess I should enter my missing scores some time this week to be back in your neck of the woods (-;

Just improved to 116k and just wanted to share the strategy on this one. Very fun level to play and 110k isn’t exactly easy but not very difficult in my opinion. Bird 1 – slightly below parallel and drop egg rather quickly between the first and second glass triangles, carcass will fly up and take out the arm detonating the tnt. Continue to second bird if you are at 28K or above. Bird 2 – about a 30 degree angle and accelerate into the top triangle piece of the first structure. This will topple the whole right side of the first structure into the middle pit and the yellow bird will bounce over to the back crane breaking one of the long wooden pieces. Continue to third bird if you are at 60k or above. Bird 3 – high arc into the pit and dropping egg so the carcass hits the horizontal cement piece of the second structure. With some luck the top part of the second structure will slowly wiggle to the right and take out the right crane and hopefully the tnt detonates in the process. Enjoy.

Thank you Toddman! Your strategy helped me increase my original score of 100k to 111k. In the span of 30-40min I was able to make scores of 101k, 105k, 107k, 109k, and my present 111k. I expect to see a lot of ABN members increase their scores on this level with your method.

Thank you @thetoddman23 for the alternate strategy post. It took a while to get the White Bird to activate the right tnt and topple the right crane but it worked. I was stuck around the average score. Your strat amazed me because it appears that is manner this level should be played. When one looks at the structures, your placement of each bird and the results of each bird it is just impressive. Case in point in getting the far left tnt to activate by your bird. Just a note of appreciation and please keep posting, helps me think in a different manner.

Reference the left hand TNT. It is very visible on the ipad HD version. It sits to the left of an extra, yes extra, glass triangle!

Also just noticed that there are two extra glass triangles to the right of the screen on the HD version. You can just make out the edge of the first on SD version. Don’t think it makes any difference to the score levels as I got my score on an iphone.

Fun level indeed ;-)
(after a few days it got quite boring though)

Anyway, I have used a slight variation of the same strategy.

First bird, low and triggered soon. Here is the trajectory:

You can get as high as 33k after this shot. The more, the better. You won’t really have another occasion to destroy much things on the left side with the other birds.

The second bird is slightly different. The goal is to slightly topple the tower on the right structure while dealing with the left structure.
Here is the trajectory:

I have been trying this because the right tower has a tendency to fall to the left instead of the right with the third bird and it was a way to increase the odds.
At the same time the yb is also helping damaging stuff in the pit.

After this shot you can get as high as 67k.

Then the 3rd bird is shot low and triggered to destroy the middle horizontal stone.
You must hope for the TNT to explode at the last possible time to increase damage by sending remaining debris everywhere.

Here is the trajectory and result for my highest score:

And here is the highscore screenshot:

Hope it helps.
