Angry Birds Mighty Hoax 3 Star Walkthrough Level 5-4

Mighty Hoax level 5-4 is deceivingly challenging. Our strategy is to loft the Blue bird over the main structure and pop the two pigs on the far side. Fire the first Yellow bird into the left tire, breaking the three wooden triangles on the left side. Fire another Yellow bird into the same spot, popping the well-guarded pig within. A large amount of additional damage is necessary to earn 3 stars, but this method is consistent for at least 2. The score in the video below is 71,320.

Though for some reason I am only able to get 12k max by the Blue Bird, I use Yellow just a bit above the wooden square block which breaks the 3 triangles and the second Yellow with the same path(bit high) which kills the lowest pig and debris falls.

The problem is that if you hit the top bird with the blues, in addition to the two on the horses, you really need at least 18K after the first shot if you hope to score above average. There’s really no need to get the bird on the top with the first bird anyway, because he will get popped when the structure collapses after the third bird.

For some reason some Facebook levels are harder than the same levels on a different platform… Some birds just don’t do what they are supposed to

i’m so glad you said that, i thought it was rotten aim on my part.

By eggomaniac

ditto,,, !!! THOT I had a 1 birder, mebbe someone with more time can try? on the other platforms it might? work. 1. as SOON as it starts Left Click. [because the structure is shaking, do it quick] 2. QUICK load at the pebble on far left where ground is. 3. Left Click just before top horizontal plank 4. Wait for it! Even when screen shifts to launch pad, click back to the structure until it stops skaking. ! It DID collpase for me, but there were surivors. [[[we should make it a UN Decree that wars have to fought with AB’s! NO Drones, no machine guns!]]] eh

so true FB birds are weaker. less penetration… !

This map is impossible on facebook. I must have done like in the video for 100 time by now but 68850 is max for me.

By Frauke

I just managed to get 3 stars on Facebook, but only by firing the last bird straight into the debris *after* popping all the pigs with the method described above. That damage was worth more than the 10.000 you get for the bird!

Was able to get a little over 13k with blue bird, which gave me the three stars (barely). split the three blue birds late to maximize damage.

I FINALLY after many hundreds of attempts got 3 stars on FB. Just sheer luck. I agree 100% with everyone above that some levels on FB simply do not do as much damage as these videos show.

Used the strategy provided by the ABN video of AMslimfordy. Increased the score by 3k. Thanks AMslimfordy. Worked like a fine clock. Found that if one takes out the bottom of the wheel with the second bird, the third bird can cause more damage deeper under the wagon.

That’s true. I found it best to use Yellows acceleration right from the slingshot. Otherwise, there wasn’t enough time in the flight path to get to full speed.

By Gary

Figured out an easy way to 3 star on FB. Shoot the blue bird like the video. Then super seed the first yellow bird and shoot just like the video – it will go through both wheels and take out everything. 83,270 the first try like that.

By Dohduh

Can’t get past 68,500 in Chrome version. I’ve cleared it 100 times, but you just don’t get the debris points like in this video. Sounds like it is a similar flaw to the Facebook version. I have 3 stars in iphone and Touchpad versions.


so was sat reading this forum and then the hole structure collapsed, it takes ages but if you just leave it the right wheel simly collapses leaving only the lowest most pig alive with out firing a single bird, it doesnt work every time im not sure whats going on but hey 5 mins of my life wasted !

This one isn’t on there yet. This has been a banner week for self-destruction reports.

Has anyone else seen self-destruction on this level? — Hope you got a good score! Sounds like the score without any birds flung must have been pretty high. Hope you know that it’s legit to take advantage of any self-destruction you are lucky enough to get.
So far I’ve seen only the merest suggestion of motion, so I think it must be pretty rare.
I’m not sure what to do about this: you are not a member, and there is the matter of the username, which suggests this might be a joke.
If it’s real, and you can’t become a member because you’re under 13, please e-mail Bird Leader (see About / Contacts); he might be willing to tell me, but maybe not.

Just saw it. I had been playing a while and upped my score to 76530. Then moving to next score I had to work on. I saw the wheel start to crumble. So I went back to this level and sure enough the wagon was moving and the right wheel started to collaspe forward toward the horses. With no birds, partial come down with score of 14890. Then I played the rest, no high score.

By JMAC1776

I got 78,780 and three stars using all four birds. I sent the blue one over the wagon to pop the two far right pigs, then I just kept sending the yellows right into the front tire as described above and in the video.

Throw all of your birds! The points to be gained from firing the last bird far outweigh the measly 10,000 for letting him sit. First shot: The only thing that matters is killing two pigs. Second shot: It took out the entire front wheel. Third shot: It cut a section out of the falling cascade of debris. Fourth shot: Above my wildest expectations, which was to break 80,000 points, my last shot took out the entire back wheel. 82,050. Do not leave the last bird unfired! UncaDick

Diddo for me. Returned on the report and can confirm this level is capable of producing higher scores. The strat is still the same but the wood damage is much easier to produce. My best was with 3 birds. I started this level ranked 20. I almost pasted on it because I felt 20 was good enough for me but after the very 1st attempt I raised my score some 2 K. After an hour or so got to 2nd and now 1st. I don’t think it will last as a top score long thou. There’s a real possibility of doing this with 2 birds with enough damage to score more.
Thanks again @bonneypattycat for the update list. Moving on down the list.

@paja1505: In fact you have several top scores in MH that are way above second places:
4-2: +28k
4-17: +24k
4-18: +17k
4-19: +23k
5-4: +6k

You should not enter scores obtained using Power Ups or if it not the case it would be nice to comment the strats used for such astounding achievements.
So far I have flagged them.
