Three birds. Launch first blue bird to far right structure. If done right, the falling structure collapses onto center structure. Second bird at closest structure. Third bird at second marmoset.

RCU7-2, 94880.. One shot, b/b at the “1” on a watch, early screen tap so that each of the “bluets” hits glass on the 2nd, 3rd and most important the base of the 4th structure that has to fall left. We’ve all played this kind of shot before, its there to be had again..

I was able to “one birdie” this level by drawing back the blue bird (b-b) and releasing it at about the same angle upwards as the “1” on a watch. I tapped the screen almost immediately to have a large spread by the three smaller blue birds or “bluets” (my name for them). Each of them has to hit a target that includes the 2nd, 3rd and 4th structure, needless to say there’s four structures in level RCU7-2. Ideally in order that will be: the left side of number 2, the center of number 3 and the base of number 4, its the collapse of these structures that yields the collateral damage points AND the falling to the left of the 2nd structure onto the 1st structure that should result in an “all out”. Adjust your release and angle from the one o’clock inclination and with a little luck, you may just end up with a big smile. Good luck!
PS. Do me the pleasure of letting me know if you succeeded..

The only problem I am having is hitting the 2 nd 3 rd and 4th structue at the same time. I am aiming the bird up at the 1 like on a clock and splitting the bird almost right away and then one hits the 1st tower 2nd and 4th but never the third one so I’m usually stuck with one monkey left, and ideas of what im doing wrong?

Though your approach is fairly effective and easy, it’s definitely quite hard to gain above 95k. Nevertheless 100k could be possible! :)

Thanks marc987. Didn’t get to 90k but your srat improved my score by +10k to 88790. On a PC found that rather the immediate release waiting until the bird reached the top of screen and then release hitting some of your hit areas but most important is to get the base of tower 4 so movement goes left. Will keep trying for that 90k range.

This works very nicely, although I wasn’t able to one shot it all and it took a couple of attempts, it did in fact work and it gave me a score of 81010. Thanks!

Replaying this level many years later and am offering a few observations on what worked for me this time to get 94k. First, I played zoomed in so I could use specific individuals in the audience to position the bird in the most effective aiming spot. I did aim the bird toward 1:00 but many attempts were needed to find the best combination of aim and release point. Regarding release, remembering that I played zoomed in, I found the best time to release was just after the bird crossed over the top of the screen. This would be before the bird reached the peak of trajectory, but I would not describe it as an early release. The right bird broke the left side base of the fourth tower, the middle bird broke through the point of the arrow on the third tower as well as the thin platform above the marmoset in that tower, and the left bird broke through the arrow point in the second tower. Collapses to the left caused more damage and ultimately knocked over the first tower, which was not impacted by any birds, and took care of that marmoset.

Got the one bird solution thanks @marc987. I activated the blues a little out of the sling and they hit the 4, 3, and 2 structures and it was a cave in on the left first structure. Took a while but zoomed in and lined up the aim with the people in the background.

I have screenshots of the remaining debris and the high score tally, but I’m unable to upload to my album. The files sizes are small enough, but when I tap the Upload button, the screen goes blank white. I’ve tried different browsers. In addition, I tried deleting current album pics. Nothing has worked. I will upload whenever a method is found.

Thanks @sweetp. I finally managed to upload the high score screen shot:

I believe the issue was file size, but instead of getting the usual file too large error message, I was getting a completely blank (white) screen. The file size was under 1 MB, so I tried reducing down to approx 150k, and that worked.

Hopefully, all is well now. I appreciate the offer to help.

Adjust your release and angle ever so slightly, its an upward shot so that the “bluets” rain down on the 2nd, 3rd and most important the base of the 4th structure. Close the spread, release later, its the 2nd structure that falls onto the 1st. Is this the only Angry Birds site that you play on, my photos of the shot are posted on another forum..

I have moved this to the 7-2 walkthrough page. At least we can see the level here.

For Total Destruction, I would proceed as in the video. Then toss the Sardine can either as close to downward as possible, or even slightly backwards. The trick is to find the location where the Mighty Eagle will follow the natural incline of the level.

Like Slim said, personally I find getting the sardine can to land just between the glass/ice arrow and the box to the right works best for me :)

Thanks guys.

I had not seen this reply until now but through persistance came up with a similar strategy for most of the 7 and 8 levels for rio mighty eagle.

These levels are all on a platform. Mighty eagle bounce richochets from the floor not the platform so need to land sardine can to the left of normal to get destruction from down direction as well as rebound up.

Have found that most of these levels will clear by not flinging any birds and selecting mighty eagle first. By just touching the sardine can without dragging it it falls at the base of the slingshot or to the floor with very high levels of destruction.

Keep up the good work guys. I have sacrificed my Jetski forums for this website and my AB addiction.

One-Birdie 1.5:
You can shoot as described above, near (but NO exactly) 1’o’clock then tapping half second after loosing the sling OR…

Using a more horizontal-angular-shoot and targetting: 2 of the 3 blue birds on the 3rd structure (must die!) from left and the last/3rd bird to destroy the left of the 4th pillar… but when you’re close to them.

Domino effect with better scoring on my experience. The “exact” angle its a pain the finger …
I don’t see this option described so I’ point to it … and at this point I recommend the common strat (thanks marc9871) for those who seek the 3 stars over the score.
