Angry Birds Danger Above 3 Star Walkthrough Level 8-2

One strategy for Danger Above level 8-2 is to fire the Yellow bird head-on into the mustache pig. Lob the White bird and bomb the vertical column of wooden blocks. Fire the next White bird just like the first, blasting any debris over the small pig in the middle. Land the Black bird in the trough with the small pig to clear the level. The score in the video below is 63,410.

I approached this like the video, but I have a few tips that may help. Aim the first bird at the wood triangle, this yields more damage. Launch next two birds with a lower lob than video. Places last bird in the wheel hole to the right. I think this can be done with three birds.

I approached it a bit differently:

1st bird – Shoot it just like Sunshine said. Don’t settle for anything less that 9,000 points on this shot.

2nd bird – Drop egg directly over the wheel well with the pig in it. Must be dropped as close as you get to so that it weakens the rock beneath the wood enough so that the black bird can bust through it later.

3rd bird – Drop egg on the remnants of the tower. This part is crucial (see 4th bird). You want to remove as much of the tower as possible so the wood from the exploding plane has free range to scatter in both directions. Otherwise, the wood from the black bird explosion just gets jammed up against the tower and has nowhere to go.

4th bird – Arc the black bird high so that it lands in the wheel well with the pig in it. If you’re lucky debris will scatter in both directions when it explodes.

This method seemed to work better because it left more of the plane intact for the last shot. The black bird is the real killer in this level, as the others are mere set-ups for the final shot. I just need to break the 80,000 barrier now.

@sydjumps Thank you for the alternate strategy. Used yours and E-Star’s video. Combined the best of each. Gained 16k in points. Sunshire’s tip on the first launch seemed to work great. Like E-Star’s second shot. Could not take out the tower so the left side of the plane worked well. The challenge of this level is to get the bomb bird right on the wheels.

Thanks @Sydjumps ! I cannot get the level of destruction that you have, but following your instructions gave me an extra 6,000 pts.

@sydjumps @wrw01 — Really did wrw01’s variation. Could not see how sydjumps was able to get the tower destroyed, except once, when of course I messed up the next shot. Not sure what I did differently on the first shot, but that one time most of the first tower fell, so dropping the egg on the remains actually had some effect.
Any additional suggestions on first and second shot much appreciated.

I also did it slightly different, I send the yellow bird at the tower at the top (I guess there are more points there after reading @Sydjumps explanation). I used the second bird to bomb the first part of the plain and the tower. Third bird bomb the plain so the wood on top of the piggie in the wheel is gone. With a precise arc I landed the Blackbird in the gap at the piggie in the wheels. Making the plain and all the wood fly of.

Like I said the tip of Sydjump of getting as much of the tower is a good thing to combine with my video. Maybe I will make a new one, but for now this is my video

Another approach that worked better for me. Couldn’t destroy the tower from the right.
Yellow Bird to the tail of the plane (close to 10k)
First White Bird to destroy the tower from bottom left (so keep low)
Second White Bird to dig a hole above the piggy at the bottom
Finally bomb inside hole at the bottom

I just got the current high score,87,010, using a different strategy.
Yellow Bird arced over tower, to hit between ‘pilot’ pig & stack of wood behind him…taking out at least half of stack.
First White Bird aimed low towards tower,releasing egg just before tower.Bird then takes out most of tower.
Second White Bird arced over middle of plane,dropping egg in center of plane.
Finally,Black Bird dropped into area above two wheels of rear landing gear.

Thank you, Great strategy. Most important shot is the black bird in to the right wheel well.

To attempt a top 100 score, you should have at least 40K before shooting the fourth (black) bird. This last shot must be aimed precisely, and the bomb should be manually exploded when in the middle of the wheel well in order to get debris to fly out in both directions. If you wait for the bomb to explode on its own, it will have rolled to the right of the wheel well and debris will fly out only to the right, causing less destruction.

Thanks @meanguy. I’m trying for this Challenge but your 92330 is definitely safe from me….LOL. I managed to improve 9k, but that 1st Matilda shot is really really tough.

@justpast40 & @comex666 & everyone else; Good luck to all! This morning I found out that this was the Challenge level and was surprised to see that not only did I have the top score, but that it’s been 4 1/2 years since I got it.
After playing the level off & on today, I’m guessing that this is one of the levels that has gotten harder to beat. So far, I’ve only gotten near 90,000 points a couple of times.

Good luck & happy flinging to all !!

My method: Chuck into the wood near the tail. Matilda bombing the tail and middle. Bomb high arc between front tower and pilot pig. I improved my score from 67 to 70k and it looks like there is even more points possible

Fun glitch: if you keep the yellow bird on stretched sling, against the next white bird, he will keep rotating slowly, u can shoot him in funny pose xd

very easy on Classic, same strategy like 7 years ago.

Totally mental!
One attempt and smashed it.

Bird 1 to break wood above wheels
Bird 2 dropped egg just after tower
Bird 3 dropped egg before tower and carcass destroyed most of what was left.
Bird 4 buried to where wheels are and ker-boom

Maybe a new variation? But pretty much just a random set of throws.

98486/4 about 3 attempts later. Think 100k must be on.

Also, with this score, went past 91 million in Angry Birds.
