Angry Birds Rio Beach Volley Walkthrough Level 17 (6-2)

Our strategy for Beach Volley level 6-2 is to launch Blu & Jewel into the top of the first tower. Loft the White bird between the middle and right structure. The explosion and ricochet should level the entire right side. Lob the Yellow bird through the middle tower to clear the level. The score in the video below is 102,200.

Bluebird must topple the first tower to knock out the first little terrorist. The SECRET is to wait for the flapping bird to spin on to the bottom and the still bird on top which will happen very close to the top of tower one if you aim right for it. Then tap and the dormant bird takes over the flight while the original birds big flapping wings knock over the first tower and the newly powered bird goes full speed to knock out the far side tower with stone boulders. Now you can dive bomb the final marmoset.

I’m not sure the secrets to 116,000 or more… any suggestion?

Anyone questioning scores greater than 120,000 on this level? If a one-bird solution exists, to get high score you would have to clear 96,000 with that one bird. Not likely, given the limitations of the shackled birds and the varying elevations nature on this level. In other words, if you claim you got 116,000+ you should share your method….

Got 121k with two birds using same method as B-Radical. First bird hit just above the stone block and released at the last moment. Second bird drop the egg and make the left side colapse.

Thank you for the explanation. I’ve tried several methods, and I’ve stalled at 112,500, it seems. I trust you Manu, based on your scores, posts and leader board rankings. Cheers.

Same method, with first bird you can have the whole left part collapse. Last bird to finish the right (I assume you meant right above, manu) tower and collapse it on the remnants of the middle part. 116620

With that many scores over 120k, I don’t see why it’s not possible. Perhaps the 126k is a little high but 120k definitely seems possible.

I got the 128+ and have had many scores over120k ,for the first 1000 or so tries my best was about 115k .I shoot blue so they hits just under the horizontal plank on first structure ,and let Them take of just as they hit ,sometimes they will shoot right to the other side knocking into the main support for right structure and the rocks fall and sometimes the level is history,but doing this with 1bird has not given me consistently high scores ,having said that Blue is still the key to high score ..when u launch him he spins at different speeds ,when u get a launch where they are about to hit the structure at the end of there second rotation tap the screen ,,u should find it ends up with alot of distruction ,best to hope for is all monkeys in middle are gone,use white in a low arc and make sure u take out as much of lowest structure on right ,rocks should fall on remaining debri …GOODluck…Blue is the weapon and answer to high score in this level

Woohoo… Never knew that about blues…. Youre right: The energetic one is connecter to a lazy one! He flies ten times faster is the energetic one is in front when you accelerate.
My score just jumped from 104k to 122520!

Can’t wait to use this new info on some previous levels where high scores were based in part on shots with the double blue bird…. Level 5-11 comes to mind. Or was it 7-13… I always mix them up.

Thank you soooo much for your strat. I haven’t come anywhere near what you achieved but can certainly see the potential. Would never have realised they could be activated just as they hit and cause so much activity with debris. Again thank you and thanks also to @Surfcow whose query probably prompted some of the most helpful posts of this level.

For t he Daily Challenge, I found a bit of early luck (unlike the last challenge!). I read @xebic88 comments, and followed them as precisely as I could. Since getting 124k 3 hours ago, I have had 3 122k scores. I know I played this level LOTS in the past and could never get past 120k. I dunno, maybe I am getting better with the blue birds?

On my best turns, the rocks didn’t fall with the first bird, they came down with the white bird. The blue birds did a real nice job on the middle, particularly the left side.

I’ll be back tomorrow, still trying for at least 126k! Goodnight and good luck!

Nice shooting @bonneypattycat, @windwalker, et al! I think the key for 120K+ score on this level is to break the horizontal plank holding the second monkey from the left — this usually leads to inside of the pit to collapse nicely…well, some of the time at least. Contrary to other levels featuring Blu & Jewel, when you hit the structure just right and debris explodes all over the screen, this is not necessarily a good thing, at least in my experience. Below are scxreenshots of shots leading to my current personal high score (watch out @bonneypattycat, I aim to beat your score!):

Bird 1: http://angrybir.de/1ayQ0PD

Bird 2: http://angrybir.de/1ayQ3eo

Also worth noting is that if you get really lucky, some debris will hit the tuft of grass just below the sling which will release the big crate from the sky (it was holding a mellon at one point). This is worth 1,300 points. Good luck all!

By fenikus (@fenikus)Score: 123,740

Shocks, after rereading my comment above, I have to clarify: You still want to hit the first tower with Blu so that debris is thrown with force, you just want the “explosion” to be more controlled and directed inward to the pit instead of up in the air. This is why you hit just above the square concrete block instead of higher.

Also, a shout out to @xebic88 for an awesome score!

Thanks @xebic88. While here for today’s Challenge it looked like everything literally exploded with this 1st shot. Before taking the 2nd shot, I snapped this http://angrybir.de/1bjtRt4, which showed a whopping 78900 after initial shot. After dropping the egg with next shot the points slowly added up to 118340. I’m still 10k from your score, but I’d only had 110k, so I’m sure glad this level didn’t suffer from premature calculation.

My method was to shoot blu and jewel into the bottom wood block of the first tower. Then I dropped the egg so that it killed the 2 middle monkeys. Then throw the yellow bird into the monkey and the base of the wood holding the boulders. Scores will vary by destruction.

Alternative: shoot blu and jewel as straight up as possible and use the power right when it leaves the slingshot. This shot has the potential to kill more monkeys.

The key is definately blu…as mentioned in above post. It’s really cool when the powerful one goes flying thru the whole structure. I aimed mine at two horizontal blocks which toppled left for first monkey and he flew all the way over and took out right structure and the stones tumbled down and took out everything but one of the monkeys in the middle which the wb destroyed.

Well if I remember correctly I tapped it just before impact as the still bird is approaching which causes him to fly thru and the flapping one behind him, knocks everything around…believe me it doesn’t happen like this every time…those blues have minds of their own, lol.

Sal, I’ve been pulling the trigger as late as possible, blues momentum pushes the middle structure to the right. Clean up with egg bomb is easier.

Demystifying Jewel and Blu Blu is the male bird. He is the one with the bigger beak. He starts out in the slingshot hanging down under Jewel. Jewel is the one with the smaller beak but has longer feathers on the top of her head. When you shoot them, Blu futiley attempts to fly and Jewel doesn’t do anything. When you activate, Jewel starts flying in a straight line and pulls Blu behind her.

The way to use them on this level is to think of Blu not as a bird, but as a shield, or maybe a battering ram. You want to activate when Blu is in front, and as close to the first structure as possible. Actually the game doesn’t seem to know that Blu is there because you can activate after Blu has touched the first structure, much like in Star Wars but you don’t have that much extra time. If Jewel touches something you can’t activate. So…..you have Blu touching or almost touching the first structure and you activate. This causes Jewel to start flying and in this case, because the structure is in the way while they switch positions, there is much more damage and the birds can often fly right through to the other side.

The next question is how do you get Blu into the front position right as they reach the structure. Others have said that the birds rotate at different speeds on different flings. That may be the case, but I’m not sure. If it is true then you just need to keep flinging until you get the right rotation. What works for me is a reduced power shot. (I know, I know, I hate them too)

hey thanks a bunch for that explanation….i KNEW there was something funny about J/B back in market mayhem challenge a few weeks ago. yours is the best/only explanation i’ve read

before reading this, and what may help others was to do it a zillion times and you sorta get the tempo and feel of when to activate for the big damage. I consider myself “good” at doing the big shot, but still i only get it maybe 1 out of 4 tries.

That being said, i took a pic of a weird flight on this level…. B/J must have hit the concrete stone just before i activated, but they flew LEFT when i activated…. or did a 180 degree turn… anyhow, i hope the pic comes out…. these are hard levels to see the flight path on….lol… good luck everyone

Hi @stocktoad, great write up on our love birds you did…I love that you seem to have a healthy obsession with them because I do too! I wanted to ask you: what is a reduced power shot? I saw that term before in other comments.

By Stocktoad (@stocktoad)Score: 117,690

Hi @fenikus Instead of pulling the bird(s) all the way back in the slingshot, move your finger closer to the slingshot when you release so the birds are closer to the slingshot. If you get too close, the birds won’t shoot. In this case about halfway between pulled all the way back and the place where it won’t shoot seems to work well.

While playing this level for the Challenge Level of the Day, an interesting thing happened. After resetting for the bazillionith time, the blues seemed like they had had enough of being tied together. In the following screen cap, you can see one blue in the sling shot, and the other perched on the platform.
