Angry Birds Bad Piggies Level 22-9 Walkthrough

One strategy for Angry Birds Bad Piggies level 22-9 is to fling the Orange bird horizontally into the gap between the last two towers. The expanding bird can cause a massive domino effect of destruction, clearing the entire level. This is not overly common, but it seems to be the best method. The score in the video below is 163,620.

Two-bird strategy can give higher scores. First bird into the first gap (between first two structures), second one – to the third gap as on video.

My best 2-birder is 165k, with not much debris. I suspect the 170+ scores are 1-birders.

I used a two bird method that netted me 169k and more possible. I used @vuelva to mock a mockingbird’s angle to toss the bird into the diagonal between the last two towers, but as I missed the sweet spot wrw01 describes, I tossed a second bird in between the mostly undamaged first two towers, and got a decent 169k …. am still aiming for the sweet spot foe a one order, but satisfied with my two bird score….:-)

This is unfortunately one of those levels where the video just doesn’t do it justice, the end result in the video has to be a Super Fluke, I’ve been at it for half an hour, and the score slowly inches its way up game after game, here’s hoping I get that fluke soon, before I go totally bonkers.

It’s actually reasonably repeatable. The key is the point of inflation: it should be very close to the point in the video, at the top of the diagonal plank. The problem is getting there. I did it by flinging high and hitting just at the left edge of the rightmost tower.

I agree. I flung the bird higher and inflated just at the point you indicated. Before I got the one birder my high score with a two birder was 166K. Just a matter of how much debris is left I guess.

This is how I got several one birdies but the highest score I got was alot of 165K’s. I ultimately got more debris and higher score using the second bird between towers 1 & 2. I’m at 168720 with two birds. I’ll take it and move on ;-)

I have to agree with you @f91jsw on the strategy for the one-bird solution. It is repeatable but the difference comes to us in the results produced. I was stuck at 167K for a few days but kept fling’n. There is a “sweet spot” at the left top of the bottom diagonal plank. I have hit it a few times and this last time everything was destroyed. The grey wrench and a few wood/stone blocks remained.
Aiming tip: zoom in and look for a spike on the bottom of the tree that goes behind the sling in the background. With an iPad I tried to keep a small space between the spike and the body/beak of OB. Minor adjustments may be needed depending on the device one may us. Most of the time it should hit the left side of the top right stone block. I would activate it anywhere near the lower diagonal plank. Then pray.

Rank: Gold Flinger with 9320 points
By to mock a mockingbird (@vuelva)

followed that strategy: to left side of top-right stone block, bird should bounce back to top-left of diagonal wood in the gap (not infrequent, every few minutes). activate upon impact there. praying doesn’t seem necessary as i got 175k (155k+20k bonus) without it (got lucky after something like 10-15 attempts as described). here’s a screenshot showing the trajectory,destruction,score of that one:

http://angrybir.de/UUwXgT

(the 167k highscore until then, showing in the screenshot, was with 2 birds, obtained by lobbing the 2nd into the gap between 1st and 2nd tower, bouncing off the 2nd, activating it when level with the lowest stones in the towers. definitely worth to try this when the 1st is largely but not completely successful. i had been a bit unlucky not to get more, but 170k+ should be possible with it, i think.)

Trying to improve my 171k during the Challenge is proving to be an effort in futility, however, perhaps it’s because I’m flinging on my iPad instead of my original device, an Android phone. I’ve always believed there are differences between platforms &/or devices, but then again out of the Top 10, none list Android, in fact 1/2 are iPad, so who knows?

The following phrase, a Casey Stengelism is probably 50+ yrs old, but so apropos …. “Who would have thunk it?” I mean seriously, who would have thought it easier to get a good score on an itsy, bitsy, teeny, weeny phone screen? I’m not giving up & obviously with Challenge scores of 172k – 175k it’s still possible.

Same shot as the video but shot on a higher arc. Gave more time to inflate manually. Though the domino effect did not work. Had to use another bird in between the first two towers.
Note: However shooting first bird in between 2nd and 3rd towers resulted in a chain destruction.

One bird for high score,between third and fourth tower, the trick is to have it lie on the left side of the lower plank for optimum destruction.

By ZipBird (@zipbird)Score: 171,870

I noticed a possibility for minor self-inflicted destruction on this level. The third and fourth towers were swaying a little and the top diagonal wooden plank that spans the two towers slipped away. This caused the fourth tower to sway even stronger. Unfortunately I had already lobbed my first bird and did not have a chance to see if the entire tower would be forced to collapse into the other three like dominoes.

Has anyone noticed this? If it happens again I’ll try to wait to see if the tower falls and report back.

So very tired of this level. Before coming here I had, and still have, only 157K and 2*. Video method has never, never, never killed the right pig in the pit. It does result in better domino effect than lobbing the orange bird as I had been doing, But lobbing and inflating lower down seems to be the only way I’ve been able to ensure a pig in the pit kill. Unfortunately, and I really don’t know why, lobbing the bird does not result in the domino effect. My high score of 157K was done by the method @annach outlined. I’ve been on Bad Piggies for almost a week and I still have almost 10 levels I cannot 3*. I cannot wait to be done with it so I can move on to Surf and Turf.

Arghhhhh! Day two on this level and no end in sight. I’ve tried every tactic listed, tried for a sweet spot and everything. Not sure where I’m going wrong :(
I’m playing on an iPhone 5 and start with the bird just left and equal to the tree spike (kinda square looking tree) with its eyes. I then throw him & about 1 in 5 times he lands inbetween the end two towers rather than over shooting. I’ve tried for a second bird tactic too but either end up with the diagonal board over the far pig on TNT blocked or have the two first towers collapse I to each other without destroying.
Any suggestions?! Please help! I’ve told my husband if I die before I complete this level to keep trying!!!

I can’t imagine how I ever got my crappy score of 163k the first time around because for challenge today I’m topping out at 158 and have not achieved a 1 bird clear even once. I’m getting decent destruction with 2 birds but the score is terrible. For those getting high 160’s with 2 there can’t be even one piece of stone left. Another challenge say abandoned for lack of fun. I much prefer those where progress is possible, even if it’s only a few hundred points at a time. Good luck all!

I’ve been able to 1-bird the level on several occasions by expanding OB at dead-center of the complex between the 2nd and 3rd towers. (Actually slightly below dead-center more inline with the short blocks that sit on top of the motors). Sometimes you have to wait for one or both of the end towers to topple if at first they are left standing ~ wait to see if they start to “teeter” and then if the teeter turns into the topple….

Just flung my 68,840 score with a 1-birder expanded between the 2nd and 3rd towers. The debris exploded outwards with a violence I had not seen before using any of the strategies ~ it was truly fun to watch! Perhaps that was because these two center towers are slightly closer together than the outer two pairings? It also seems easier to fling OB between the 2nd and 3rd towers on a more consistent basis than between the between the 3rd and 4th towers.

@uncle-b I also tried it for awhile. It always seemed to lazily knock down the first three towers, and leave the 4th one standing. Just saw your awesome score, and clearly it’s a good strategy. I guess this level’s just not in a giving mood today. great job on that score, man :)

I have a confession to make. I shouldn’t even be on the improved list. The only reason I am is because I under-reported my original score by 50 points. I’m also more of a pessimist than @karen68 I’ve never gotten a 3* score with a 2-birder, so if the 1-birder didn’t happen, I’d just reset.

Rank: Sling God with 24820 points
By Uncle B (@uncle-b)Score: 175,710

I agree @Kelani that if the deck isn’t cleared with the 1st shot you might as well reset and not even attempt the 2nd shot if the objective is to achieve High Score. The best I’ve done with the 2nd bird was around 167K.

There is definitely a “sweet spot” that you’ll immediately realize you’ve hit because the outward explosion of both the 2nd and 3rd towers is like nothing you’ve seen before on this level. The bird is dropping so fast that I haven’t been able to tell exact;y where it is other than to say it is centered between the two towers and at or slightly below mid-height.

I know in the videos discussion of the strategy it says the strategy is not common, AND IT ISNT!! We are talking a probable lucky shot that they claim is the best method. Wrong-o. It just a lucky break on a hail mary orange bird pass. To seriously concider the videos method as the “strategy”, would be like say scratching off your lotto tickets in a counter clock wise motion would get you the million dollar jackpot just because someone tried it and won. My strategy involved 2 birds and an butt load of dumb luck… oh and many attempts to slumble across the dumb luck part. Some people need to post video strategies that have been tested repeatedly and proven to get results before they are/should be concidered “strategies”. I understand that it does say their strategy in the video is not common, like saying “results not typical. So, you may want to add that in you calculations as to the success of your shots in this level. Find your own strategy, test many times, then post you tried and true strategy ladies and gentlemen, not a lucky Houdini shot.

Just got 180330 aiming for the third gap and then the first gap. More interestingly, anyone had the following phenomenon/glitch? On a previous attempt, with the first bird aimed down the third gap and nearly down to the TNT, when it expanded it seemed to travel through the final tower and end up on the outside. Needless to say, very little damage was done.
