Angry Birds Danger Above 3 Star Walkthrough Level 8-6

Our strategy for Danger Above level 8-6 is to fire the first Blue bird to break the horizontal ice block in the bottom-left of the main structure. Continue working your way left-to-right with Blue birds, attacking the bottom of the main structure. Finish off by destroying the far-right ice structure. The score in the video below is 109,100.

I followed the written direction, focus on bottom left corner. I had three birds left.

There is a potential for a one bird solution.
My guess is that those top scores had to.
The first shot is key, you need to take out the left half of the structure.

117k with 2unused, 120k with 3 unused. The first bird indeed is the key, it should take out the left part including the big one.

The left side of this building is unstable – it’s fallen down three times now, just leaves really awkward little piggies to shoot at. If I find a way to exploit it I’ll let you know.

Just to let you know, it starts to sway and then the left side hollow concrete block moves left and takes everything but the two vertical wooden supports with it. That’s possibly how the top scores were made. I’m useless with the little blue birds – that’s why I cant make use of it.

Sometimes, the collapse starts from the center: the top hollow concrete block somehow bows the structure outward, causing both the left and the right side to collapse. When this happened to me, I was left with 64k and only three pigs on the bottom of the main structure surviving. The debris was a little tricky to navigate around, but a one-birder would have been possible. Unfortunately, I flubbed the shot (coming in from a high lob like E-star demonstrates) and got only one of the pigs. Fortunately, I was able to shoot the second bird pretty low and sweep up a bunch of damaged glass in addition to getting the last two pigs, so I ended up with a decent score anyway.

Thanks for the comment! Please leave a comment in the forum if you find any more self-destroying or unstable levels. Data on the older episodes is largely lacking, and it will take me a looonng time to review all the comments. iI will add 8-6 to the list of self-destroying and unstable levels in the forum. FYI, for these early episodes, there is a second set of “original” walkthroughs at the end of the walkthrough pages. These old walkthroughs are ~5 levels per video, and were replaced with 1 video per level. Not as important as the fact that there are old comments, which were not copied to the new walkthrough pages. Turns out the self-destruction on this level is mentioned there.

I noticed this too :)

A little bit difficult to explain my strat after the collaps, but I used 2 birds and got 120610!

Here is my video, that shows it all!

@E-Star Thanks for the video showing the strategy that one can utilize after the collapse of the left side of the structure. The structure collapsed in a different manner and the stone blocks on the left were not present for the first bird. The launch was a straight-on aimed towards the bottom shot. The end result produced 2k+ in points.

I have had the left side collapse, which destabilized the right as well. Left some inconvenient debris, and the little pigs at the bottom. I think with the right circumstances a zero bird solution may be possible. Will keep trying.

Got 133k with a very lucky self collapse. Both side fell and middle crumbled leaving only to little pigs and a handfull of ice blocks.

Hi manu!
I oversaw your activity and advance on Game Center and I thank you for this exciting competition! (although you scored this 133k a few hours after my beautiful 132k with the same scenario :) grrr)

Wow, that was incredible! The left side started swaying then the middle stone blocks at the top fell inwards opening up the entire left side of the structure. An easy two-birder for a great score!

Don’t know if this has changed with some update, but the self destruction now seems to vary between frequent (almost every-other start), to vary infrequent (only the smallest hint of instability in 60 to 100 starts).

Did a hard close, and had some self-collapse on 5th and 12th restart. Gave me an extra 2K, and collapse was not as good as in @E-Star‘s video.

Also collapsed on 18 and 28; got another 3 K!
So if you aren’t seeing any self-destruction after 15 restarts; try a hard close.

Just as everyone has stated, letting the structure collapse on itself is a great start. This left me with those little pigs on the bottom of the main structure and some debris. My first shot was a lob into the middle (slightly more to the right side of this pile). This took out the two right side pigs and allowed for the right side tower to fall to the left taking out the left sided pig on the bottom that always seems trapped and hard to get at. Left 4 birds for bonus points!

I did also note that the structure does collapse on itself 1 out of every 7 shots. Just need to be patient cuz it doesn’t fall right away… Give it about a 20 seconds count before resetting to try again. Best of luck everyone! :-)

I have seen the structure collapse plenty. Sometimes the left side, sometimes from the middle. Only got the left and right to collapse together once….and I blew the second shot. Will keep trying.

So after reading the comments above I reset the level several times waiting for self-destruction. It did happen fairly often but didn’t always leave easy clean-up. Usually two birds required. This last time I noticed 10 pts show up right off the bat so I just waited a min or so…got such good destruction that only one pig remained netting 132,970 and rocketing me to #2 on leaderboard…very exciting for me as I’m usually happy to land anywhere above 500! :D love angrybirdsnest!!!! Wouldn’t even be able to achieve 3 stars on most levels if it wasn’t for the awesome videos and comments posted here! Thank you everyone!

Oooh that #2 slot was so exciting I kept at it to try for number one…managed 133,710 for top spot! :D This time two pigs were left after spontaneous collapse but still only required one birdie to pop.

So basically, you just reset the level time after time and hope for the collapse to occur? It doesn’t happen everytime I suppose

Selfdestruction still works on this level. They are usually fixed when I come around and play the levels, but it seems that Rovio has left this one alone.Good destruction left and right and as EmC12 I had two birds left.

@rush — Thanks for the comment. Did you know there is a forum on self-destroying and unstable levels that list all that have been reported? It’s at
Would love it if you post your comments on changes in self-destruction, or any new self-destruction you find in that forum. I don’t always see the comments that are only posted on the walkthroughs.
If you haven’t looked at the list, there are some really amusing unstable levels that you might want to check out.

I knew but I´ve never been there before.Impressive!! The thing is that I´m a (compulsive) flinger and the good thing about this level is that SD comes directly. Overnight wait for SD – puh sounds heavy.

Back here because for some reason I lost my stars this episode ,
@emc12 not sure if for still around, but Congrats on the trophy?
Seems though I’m out of luck as usual, i missed the self destructing my first time around, or didn’t wait long enough, or didn’t check out this site break then.
But seems now the self destructing has been fixed.. Rovio always has to ruin the party…* Sigh* I’ll just hope for reaching my posted score and be flying along to the next level ?

and no the self-destruct hasn’t been fixed (at least not here on my PC version)

So I had an almost-ZERO-birder-world-top10.. The last pig didn’t pop… If he popped, and it was close, it would have been a 130k+
