Angry Birds Mighty Hoax 3 Star Walkthrough Level 4-9

Our strategy for Mighty Hoax level 4-9 is to lob the Red bird nearly straight up, scoring a direct hit on the first pig. Then fire the Yellow bird just over the mortar and into the heart of the tank beyond. The score in the video below is 49,030.

Easiest top score ever. The birds can take a break on this one, the tank will do the job. Nothing to be really proud of, but still, it is kind of nice to be lucky sometimes.

Just keep reloading, the tank will roll forward every once in a while. It will not always kill all pigs, I think I reloaded over 200 times before it worked out (I did have very good collateral). If it doesn’t work you can probably still get an easy 1-birder to start with.

The reload method still hasn’t worked for me but I can see it happening :D

If the reload doesn’t work, give it a helping hand with the red bird :)
Aim it with a high arc so it hits the stone block behind the tank. 10k less then the 0 birdie, but still more than a 2 birdie!

Here’s the video

Thanks Vaporizer and e-star for the strat and video. I wasnt able to get the one or the two birder (the tank did not roll enough) but you helped improve my score by 3K.

@AMslimfordy – could you highlight this blue as a new/alternative strat?

This little issue intrigued me, so I did a little digging in the page source. After finding another page with a blue-ified section, a bit of code comparison in the comment class id line shows that the only difference is the addition of the term “comment-strategy” in similar class id lines.

It might be possible to edit this page manually to make such a change that PlayDBird requested for Vaporizer’s comment, should it work. I’d be curious to see if such a manual edit actually works in this situation.

@e-star Thank you for the 1-bird video. This level was fun. If the tank did not roll by itself on reset one could use E’s one bird strategy. The zero bird strat does happen (occured about 6 times) as described by vaporizer above but could not get the center pig to go away. Line up of the launch was made easier by centering the basket in between the background green foliage when zoomed in close.

Darn it, I think they fixed this one on an update. I can’t get the 0 bird or e-star’s one bird method to work. Thus, I am stuck with a mediocre score. Anybody got any ideas to get a better score within the new limitations?

I don’t know what is meant by “reload” method…just keep trying video…

Rank: Master Slinger with 7205 points
By TruckDriver (@truckdriver)Score: 60,030

In this context, the term “reload” is referring to the act of continually resetting, or restarting the level, until you achieve the desired action and result.

Thanks, Vaporizer, for the tip. It looks like this requires a bit more patience than I can muster today, but I’ll try it again another day (maybe while watching TV, or something).

I was able t improve quite a bit using the one bird approach suggested by @estar.

After about 50 reloads, the tank has rolled and collapsed 4 times- unfortunately for me, 3 of those times, only 1 pig was popped; the final time, no pigs popped at all. But, that’s just MY luck (or lack thereof). (-:

Yep, 0-birder here too. If anyone noticed, Surf and Turf level 12 doesn’t act the same, and you can hardly, if not ever, get a 0-birder on it any more. I hope the update didn’t fix this as well. I guess I’ll just have to open it up and see. I usually get the tank to start rolling sufficiently to self-destruct about 1 in 50 tries. If 5 or 10 seconds go by and it seems the tank has either stopped, or even moved backwards a touch, then reload.

In 3.0.0 update tank NEVER roll to left – looks like here is invisible obstacle or (most likely) elevation (invisible too) in certain spot.

So if I launch 2.0.2 version specially for this level, will be it legitimate to enter that score?

@axxieck Why not update to v3.3.0 instead?

@amslimfordy Because my notebook has integrated video iGM945 without OpenGL 2.0 support.

If gaming in latest patch is mandatory for this boards, I better leave then.

How do you plan on running v2.0?

On PC it is easy for me. 1) Install 2.0.2; 2) Copy it’s install dir somethere; 3) Install 3.0.0 – and so, I have a two worked in same time versions with common highscores/setting files.

Personally I don’t like much ethical side of such situation, so now I just scored 49k by straight way and switched to another levels.

I bounce the first red bird off the nose of the tank kill the pig in the top of the tank and deflects the bird to kill the first pig then all you have to do is deal with the last pig.

One of the most boring and meaningless levels ever. What is the point in resetting over and over and over, just for the program to maybe go into auto-pilot and give a “0-birder” (didn’t happen yet). I’ve also tried the strat to bounce the red off the concrete, to give the tank a nudge, more than 200 times (I’ve counted them!), and so far nothing – just watching the tank really really slowly move back and forth, then stop. Yawn. I see no-one else is complaining so I guess I’m the odd one out, but I just don’t see any challenge or entertainment value here.

Ditto @jrsquonk and @axxieck. Running v5.0.0 on iPad Mini, the tank never rolls forward. You can demonstrate this by rocking the tank backwards. When it rolls forward again, it jerks to a stop at the starting point. @amslimfordy, from your comments, it looks like Rovio has tweaked that roll back and forth a few times in updates.

And (sorry for double post here). I personally think that 0 birds scores should not be accepted, because it’s glitching the game, and those glitches are most like about to be fixed eventually. We have perfect example of this above.

Getting loads of direct hits on the end but never has the red bird rolled/bounced to the left

Spent awhile on this level to see if a one-birder is possible anymore, but no matter what I did, I couldn’t get all pigs with one bird. Getting a score of 60k is seemingly impossible now with the updates made by Rovio.
A score of 50k+ can still be made using the video strategy with some persistence.
