Angry Birds Mighty Hoax 3 Star Walkthrough Level 5-1

Our strategy for Mighty Hoax level 5-1 is to bomb the junction of the four triangular stones, trying to pop all pigs to the left of the beachball. If pigs remain, bomb the rubble on the left and ricochet into the pigs. If you keep the White bird low, it can topple to stone tower on the right side and pop those pigs as well. The score in the video below is 55,290.

I had more luck shooting the white bird straight ahead at the first of the three pillars supporting the triangular roof, dropping the egg right before the bird makes impact. If you’re lucky, this will knock out the first 4 pigs. It may leave the bottom of the first 3 pigs remaining, but that’s ok.

Aim the next white bird between right of the beach ball and the stone pillars, dropping the egg when it will make the bird shoot off knocking down the stone pillars taking out the last 3 pigs.

If you still have the last of the first 4 pigs, take it out the same way as in the video, launching the bird to knock down the tower.

Excellent tactic, yu could also launch the egg bomb for the first bird when it is close to the block supporting the triangle roof. The bird should be able to fly up and hit the board protecting the inner pig.

This works well, but placement of the first bird requires that straight ahead first shot, otherwise the triangle roof rolls to the left and does nothing.

I never succeded in killing the bottom left pig this way. However, if you send the 2nd wb to the bottom left as well, and drop the bomb to kill the bottom left pig, then the bird often bumps towards the stone structure, killing the rightmost 3 pigs. Requires some luck but gives excellent destruction and a 2 birder

@bluebirdballs Thank you for posting your alternate strategy. Used your basic strategy but could not get the bottom left pig to disappear. Had to use two white birds to get that nasty pig. Then used chrchr suggestion below and wow AB’s magic. Got them all.

Although I haven’t accomplished it I have come really close to completing this level with one bird. I fire the bird higher than shown in the videos. Aim directly for the left most triangle and drop the egg just before impact. This is the part I’m trying to figure out: I’m not sure if it’s best for the egg to hit at the base of the structure or to hit the top of the structure just left of the triangle. Anyway, after dropping the egg the carcass should plow through the triangles and slow it down enough so that it carries forward enough to knock down the stone structure on the far right. If you’re lucky (about 40% of the time) the falling stone structure will kill all three pigs.

One of two two pigs usually remain when I complete the launch correctly and have a little luck. The pig in the center next to the beach ball is left about 50% of the time or the pig deep inside the left structure is left about 70% of the time, sometimes both. If I can just get lucky enough to get them both with one shot.

Even if I don’t complete this level with one bird I can see that 65,000+ is doable with this method.

Hit just above bottom of long board and took out all on 1 shot

Apparently the “simple ones” are just beyond me. I can’t get this one no matter which method I use. ARGH!

74330 one shot. Dropped the bomb just before the obstacle and the bird went up killing all the piggies and causing mass destruction.

I did it in my second try without any guides.. later was trying to do something similar.. never happened. when i checked th hiscores here i was amazed how lucky i was..
and there still was more stuff to break so a 75k+ score is possible.


No one seems to have noticed the fact that this level involves the slaughter of innocent child pigs playing on a horse, slide, and parallel bars, while their mother lovingly watches over them while benignly sitting on a chair. Just sayin’. :)
