Angry Birds Big Setup 3 Star Walkthrough Level 11-5 -

Our strategy for Big Setup level 11-5 is to fire the first Big Brother through the bottom of the first tower, taking out the three pigs there. Launch the next Big Brother into the top-left of the main structure, causing it topple to the right. Use the last bird, if necessary, to clean up. The score in the video below is 123,390.

Same as video. Focus on hitting the exact center of the top left stone triangle for the second bird, it is the “main shot” that scores can vary most at.

Yeah thanks kart I tend to aim a bit lower than that triangle because it gives me a little more points, but other than that, I follow the video.

Alright everyone. Have I got a treat for you! I was playing this level a couple of weeks ago trying to get some Top Scores. So, if you want to have fun with this level and get a high score, read this PAT.
1st Terence – See the little pieces of glass laying down on the bottom left of this level kind of like dominoes? Aim to hit the left part of the first one. I know it sounds weird, but trust me. When you get it just right, Big T gets an awesome top spin type motion and cuts through the glass on the left and bounces up to take out the bottom of the wooden structure holding the two pigs. You want to make sure all of the wood falls down. You are looking at anywhere from 38-45k if you do it right. If there is any plank of wood blocking the little wood block on the left of the main structure, restart.
2nd Terence – You want him to hit right about the middle of the lone wooden block on the left of the main structure. You will know when you hit it just right because it will look as if Big T has dynamite strapped to his chest and the whole thing shatters. Everything should push off to the right and fall very nicely. Very impressive.
3rd Terence – Should be 10k. However, I have missed that little Pig towards the right of the main structure and threw Big T and still ended up with 130k.

If you have any questions, you know where to find me. :D

@rdnzlrips82 What a fun strategy! Just improved my score with it. I actually had all the pigs with 2 birds but went ahead with the third because it gave me more than 10k of destruction. Thanks so much with another one of your PATs!

Mighty fine slingin’, @Rdnzlrips82 and @hallieginsb – congrats on your high scores. My only question: is 148,000 even possible on this level? There are a bunch of scores in your range but only one score above 141,000 – that’s the reason I’m asking. Thanks for sharing your success via PAT, which I thought stood for “Pigs Are Treacherous.” I took your advice anyhow and added 8K to my score, so muchas gracias. Aloha.

I know that with my higher scoring efforts, there was still a little left on the table. Enough for 8k over 2nd, I don’t know. If they have proven to the Admins it is legit, then it is possible. I do know this, that score was posted BEFORE the challenge started. I remember seeing it and feeling my jaw hit the floor. If you click on the user name, you will find them doing pretty well on the game.

Scored 144,240 just now (also being in bed, but recovering from the flu,
so plenty of time to kill).

I was essentially following the strategy described by @Rdnzlrips82:

1st bird) on/to the left of the first glass. for my current high-score this got me almost 45k
(btw the more to the left, the higher the bounce, the higher the chance of 42k+ scores, in my experience)

2nd bird) through the wood mentioned (don’t know how rovio has programmed it, but my model for the mechanics of this in general is that the debris of the wood ends up between the bird and the bricks, and acts as a lubricant). for my current high-score this got me around 90k, with a heavily damaged middle structure, but its right part hadn’t been pushed over the edge yet (cannot remember whether all the pigs had gone by then or not, was busy throwing the third: I was always throwing a third as I didn’t have much luck with two, getting stuck at 137k, and was throwing quickly as the level times out shortly after the last pig has gone).

3rd bird) to the middle of the middle structure (cf. the trajectory in the screenshot). It went through the bricks onto the bottom, bounced and destroyed everything in its path or pushed it over the edge (leaving the right part of the middle completely empty).

Unfortunately, the 3rd bird didn’t roll down (you can still see it’s feathers in the screenshot, on the top-right of the middle structure), but it could have. So my answer to @surfcow‘s question is affirmative: yes, I think 148k is possible, with luck, but possible.

(I see that the reason for the question was an 148k score obtained by @hoo, which has been removed since. Since I’m not sure as to why, I refer to @amslimfordy as well.)

By bonneypattycat (@bonneypattycat)Score: 143,260

Nice score Mock!

I am terrible at going for all the glass on the left, so I skip it and go directly for the wood and hope Red bounces back enough to get into the low 40s, which happens frequently.

I usually fling the third bird, but twice now I was in too big of a hurry to do so, causing me to lose out on a 141k score with two birds. Gotta keep a watchful eye on this one!

I guess @hoo was put out by having his/her score questioned. The situation could have been avoided if hoo had simply posted proof from the get go, and not left others to wonder if it was a typo.

Wow, I just got 143k, and that was without taking out much of the glass on the left.

BB seems to have more oomph than when I last tried this level. I was stuck at 132k forever, but today I have had numerous scores above 135k. I don’t know, maybe my aim has just improved?

Rank: Gold Flinger with 9485 points
By to mock a mockingbird (@vuelva)

143k? wow, excellent! with 2 or 3 (and if 3 where did you throw it)?

wrt to BB having more oomph, may i refer you to your response to 18-9 where i thought ob seemed to have more oomph… :-)

my guess is that (y)our aim has improved.

Hi @rdnzlrips82, howdy.
May I ask a few questions please?
First, when you said “hit right about the middle of the lone wooden block on the left of the main structure”, what did you mean by the lone wooden block? Is it the wooden block from the first left wooden structure?
Second, what is PAT? It says “read this PAT” on your post, but it’s unclickable.
Thanks man. :)

By rdnzlrips82 (@rdnzlrips82)Score: 139,600

Hey there, @hery-cyd!
Answer to Question 1: If you look at the left hand side of the bigger structure on the right (the one that’s mostly stone,) you will see a small wooden block. To be more precise, the left side of the stone structure goes from top to bottom; stone triangle, horizontal stone plank, small wood block, etc. It’s the third block down on the left hand side of the main stone structure. I hope this isn’t too confusing
Answer to Question 2: A PAT, is an abbreviation for Precise Aiming Technique, which is a term I came up with here at the Nest. Some of my PAT strats actually give exact sling positions based on landmarks throughout the level to help you aim at the right spot for maximum points.
If you have anymore questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

I’ve been trying the rdnzlrips82 method. It’s good and a bit of fun but only works maybe 1 in 10 and the score is rarely above 42k which can be achieved more easily by following the video method. This is all about the L word. Sometimes the second bird will blast the structure to pieces sometimes not. A good second gets a good score. 148k is massive though. Anyone else notice that the first wooden structure is a bit unstable maybe it fell over by itself….

By asher (@asher)Score: 147,460

I don’t know about 148k but 147k+ is definitely possible.

I have been using the 3 birds with @vuelva variation on @rdnzlrips82 strategy.

Here is the first bird trajectory.
Up to 46k is possible after this shot.

The second shot is as described by all.
Here is the trajectory.

At this point, I wait just a little before flinging the third bird.
I found out that being lazy and using the exact same trajectory as the second bird was giving the best results.
On the PC version it’s easy: just don’t move the mouse and click a second time (we don’t have regular AB updates, but at least we have that ;-) ).

This the resulting damages for my best score.

And the highscore screenshot.

Hope it helps.
