Angry Birds Rio Golden Beachball Walkthrough Level #14

Our strategy for Golden Beachball level 14 is to fire the first Red bird into the bottom of the top TNT. The resulting destruction is pretty consistent, but hitting the bottom of the TNT usually results in the bird taking out the left palm tree. Fire the second Red bird into the top of the next highest TNT. Again, the destruction itself does not vary much, but this way the Red bird should clear the bottom-right marmoset. As necessary, continue working your way down the ladder with Red birds, or fire them into the level once all the TNT are detonated. The score in the video below is 79,390.

After I am done with this level the beach balls just keep bouncing and it won’t end.

It will likely end eventually, so you can either wait (it can take awhile) or try again. This is known to happen occasionally.

82790 – four birds, but I can see how luck might only need three.

I like to shoot the first red bird high above the top set of beach balls. The arc usually just clears the palm tree, goes through the sand and takes out the big monkey, the tree, the one hanging from it, and the one under it. Then I shoot for the second from top set of beach balls. The bird might even bounce back and take out the monkey on the lowest platform.

Second bird goes into the second from top TNT to shoot the beach balls across. Without the tree or big monkey to get in the way, you can do a lot of damage. I try to be patient and let the balls bounce as they will – sometimes they’ll bounce back and hit the other TNT box on the very bottom.

Third bird goes into the very top TNT to clear out the top-most monkey and with luck might clear the level.

Fourth bird into the third from top TNT to bat clean up, if needed.

This can be achived with two birds. First hit top tnt and land right on the edge of the platform. The bird will roll and fall onto the trampoline. You want to have the sand block under the plam tree and big marmoset destroyed at this point and the plan tree on the trampoline. The second bird similar shot on the TNT below. If all goes well, one of the ball will hit the triangle sand block at the bottom and the red bird will hit that spot right after bouncing back up to hit the rigt most marmoset. At this point only the bottom marmoset is remaining and with a little luck something will hit it. This is relatively reproducable and lead to a 87-89k score. With more luck one of the big ice ball will fall or something will bounce on the TNT at the bottom leading to more destruction and higher score.

@eweber whenever I see a strat posted by you, I know it’s worth a try. You are the EF Hutton of ABN. ;)

I was having trouble with your first shot until I started lobbing red a little softer. Then he started rolling off the ledge better and landing in a good spot on the trampoline to bounce up and take out the middle palm tree and marmosets. One time after doing that he bounced to the left and hit the bottom tnt sending those beach balls everywhere. Only had one marm left after that and got it with the second shot. Gained 11k on this level thanks to you.

I followed @eweber strategy. I had many 2-birders that resulted in 88/89 scores, but it took a while to get a 2-birder where the three TNTs were also triggered, finally putting my score into the 90s.

I confess I at first misunderstood manu’s 2nd bird. When he said lower TNT, I thought he meant the lowest TNT, the three at the bottom. I can tell you I didn’t have any luck that way. 2nd bird to the second highest TNT works much better ;)

I also tried the softer launch with the first bird, but frankly I am not very good at those. I went for a full speed, direct hit to the side of the TNT. Often the bird catches the lip, making it land at the right edge of the bumpers, just where you want it.

The second bird, I experimented with hitting the TNT low, low enough to bounce back and hopefully roll down to set off those 3 TNTs. That didn’t seem to work very well. Finally hit the TNT like the first bird so that it tripped on the ledge, then fell down to set off those lowest TNTs. GL!

@eweber, same here. 2 birds. What I want to add to this strat is to wait until everything is quiet after each bird. In my case, the beach balls were bouncing and bouncing with still one pig alive. After a while one of the beach balls ignited the tnt in the left, these beach balls took care about the last pig and destroyed other stuff.

@magsy79 : confirmed.

I had a great first shot with 47K by slightly touching highest ball, bird did the described job, plus the falling ball activated lowest TNT and somehow the same or another ball even activated second lowest TNT. Top three apes were left, the one next to the palm tree and the very top one and the one left from it.

(screenshot available, can some-one explain how to upload?)

I then went for the top TNT activating the remaining ball. This only cleared two apes, leaving the leftmost alive.

Cleared that one with remaining second highest TNT. 2 birds left.

I should have gone for the second highest TNT with my second bird, maybe I could have finished with 3 birds left for a score around 95-100K.

2 birds 96030. The 1st shot is exactly like manu described above. The 2nd shot, aim for the sky such that when it falls down, it hits both the 2nd and 3rd tnt in one go. Understandably this is a difficult shot, but the upside is you have many bouncing balls at a given time, and hence a greater chance to score higher.

Finally got a little time to try this. I only managed it twice so far 91k and 93k. Didn’t got lucky on colateral but definitively good potential.


It did not take me very long before I got 90k using this method and I stopped (because the top score at that time was around 92k) and never came back. It’s only when the discussion on the 118k score that brought me to the scene, and the very first time I played it again, I got 96k (I should thank that guy!). All in all, I think given sufficient number of trials, the top score will be challenged – but for me, there are so many levels that I need to catch up so I probably wouldn’t work on this one in the near future.

I find this shot way easier to pull off than the high shot to the umbrella on rio 6-1.
I stretch the catapult to the max slowly making it a little shorter and release. Added 8k to my score in 1 hour, ty @HKG.

I was playing around with this type of shot too, thinking maybe I could hit all the TNTs in one shot. That doesn’t look to be possible, but you can hit the top two TNTs in one shot also. But as @HKG says, it’s not an easy shot.

I too thank you @HKG for posting but used the second shot first. Also thanks to @comex666 for the video. I played this one zoomed in and tried to find an aiming point on the sling prior to the release. If I did not activate the bottom two tnt boxes then reset the level. There appears to be a luck factor with the bouncing balls in getting all the monkeys. Fun level to play.

I ended up doing first shot like manu mentions…it’s good to get that palm tree and monkey out of the way, but I chose to go for the third TNT box down with my second bird because when I tried the second one next, it never wants to hit that far right middle monkey right, so with this third tnt instead it hits different and takes out that annoying monkey…third shot to second tnt.

I revisited this level today and it’s a lot of fun! I could play it over and over ;-) So far I’m at 99360 with two birds.

It’s pretty much random and lots of bouncing ball “L” factor! The first one I sent to the top tnt, at it’s base. It chopped up some of the big palm tree, I missed the big Ape there at first but one of the balls bounced back and ignited middle tnt, releasing those balls, then another bouncing ball ignited the very bottom set of three tnt’s…after all the balls settled I sent the second bird at the 3rd tnt down and finished off the remaining bottom right monkey. With the a big dose of “L” factor I think a one birdie could put up a nice score!

Yes! A one birder. Red bird in a very hgh lob, on its way down taking out the middle abd bottom ‘platform’ TNT’s. most times, this shot also results in the TNT’s on the floor being set off by a beachball. And most times there are 2 or 3 monkeys left over to nab with the second bird. But in this instance another beachball also set off the ‘top platform TNT, and a 1-bird clearance ensued.

SweetP, I followed the same strategy as all the others, red bird to top tnt. The beach balls did however triggered all the other tnt boxes, so it was a one-birder with a enormous bit of luck. Screenshot in my album
