Angry Birds Mighty Hoax 3 Star Walkthrough Level 5-2

Mighty Hoax level 5-2 is rather difficult, and nearly requires a one-bird clear to earn 3 stars. Our strategy is to loft the Blue bird upward, aiming for the middle tower. Split while the bird is still rising, so the three birds land in nearly the same spot. It takes a few tries, but the key is to have a stone land on the first helmet pig, causing him to roll to the left. The score in the video below is 50,840.

I used the video’s method for this one, but with a few modifications regarding the areas where the blue birds would hit.

1. The bottom blue bird should hit the middle of the stone tower, the middle should hit the side of the top of the tower, and the blue bird on top to hit the taller stone block on the tower. The bottom blue bird pushes the helmet pig near the tower, and hopefully rolling to hit the glass support on the pig in the pit. Tower debris should be able to fall on the mustached pig cause by the impact of the second blue and the last one to lightly touch the far-right pig.

A little improvisation from @amslimfordy‘s & @kartflyer‘s strats above is to launch Blue at higher arc so Jay will reach the right-most pig, Jake will hit somewhere around the upper-left corner or the longer vertical stone on top of the middle structure (and topple it), while Jim will take care of the left-most pig. This can be done by pulling the slingshot in a way that Blue’s aiming position is somewhere above Red below and immediately dispersing upon release. Please take note that this is just another way of completing the level and by no means of an easier way to achieve higher scores as it still requires a quite amount of luck. It took me a cumulative of more than 4 game-play hours to record my current 53k… :)

I was able to launch the blue bird at the tower and just before impact split him into 3. The top bird hitting the horizontal wooden beam above the mustached pig and sending it to smash the pig on far right. The middle bird pushes the tower to the right, thus causing the tower to topple and fall onto the pig below the tower to the right and smashing the mustached pig as well. The lowest bird aids in pushing the tower, but bounces up and with the cement blocks fall onto the pig to the left of the tower and then continuing to get the pig on the far left. I found this easier than the video. Scored 51650.

took me three dozen tries…but you strategy worked for 52910. Now I remember WHY this is my most hated level in the AB Universe!

@AMslimfordy Thank you for the strategy and the video. Used your strategy and it provided an additional 1K+. Will take it and move on.

This level is fun because one looks at it like “a fling and a pray”. Line up your fling, launch, activate the bb and hope for the best. Forgot to mention, close your eyes after the launch and wow AB’s magic, got those pigs.

Indeed. I’ve been doing this on PC, and I hit it just enough to pop every pig except for the far right helmet pig, and the flying debris hit it just enough to have it ever so S-L-O-W-L-Y roll all the way off the right side of the structure and finally pop itself.

The trick to this level to get 3 stars with even heaving a bird anywhere is use a birdquake and that should be sufficent enough to get ever pig in this level. Final Score – 60790

These walkthroughs are done without power-ups. I’m going to add “Facebook” to your comment, since this post applies to mobile apps primarily, and not Facebook.

Hardest 3-Star ever. Got 49,000 and change about 10 times, and after 3 days finally got 50,750 using video method. Brutal.

By Emc12

Wow, thank you! After reading the comments above I was able to score 50,840 on my second try…I launched blue bird high, pulling sling back just behind top of red bird and splitting just before they turned downward. Maybe a lucky shot but couldn’t have done it without the great explanations above.

I finaly got the 3stars and a perfect score of 50000

A difficult aiming point so I changed mine. Here’s a video for 52k.

It may be even easier to split earlier, immediately at launch. 52k is quite common, more isn’t!

Yes, @steviep147, much the same way and it comes down to luck really to notch 4th place. But very repeatable once you get the aiming and release points sorted. I wonder if this has in some way got easier, it drove me mad many years ago, like many others. Do you finally have 90 million in your sights?

Who knows. When I was first doing this level I wouldn’t have dwelt on it for too long after getting 3 stars. The extra 2k for the top score wouldn’t have been of interest.

Odd one here. 82760 came up as final score. Should have been 52760. No power ups so no clue. Did get 53000 in the end so a small improvement.

@admins @lukew I may have queried this top score in the past but I don’t see it in the comments. The score is 16k above anyone else and I don’t see any explanation for it. IMHO without a glitch or a power up it’s just not possible.

I recently updated my scores on the site after not having done so for 3-4 years. Unfortunately, that means I do not a specific memory of what I did to achieve this score. I do not use power-ups. I do remember that I played this stupid level FOREVER until getting this score. A glitch? Perhaps, but I would have noticed that, I think. For example, I scored over 45,000 points on Poached Eggs level 1-1 and I immediately knew that was impossible and have not entered that score.
At any rate, I’ve attached a screenshot. I have no ego about a top score, so whatever anyone “decides” is no big deal.
