Angry Birds Rio Smugglers Plane Walkthrough Level 12 (11-12)

Our strategy for Smugglers’ Plane level 11-12 is to fire the first Yellow bird through the higher oil drum on the far left of the level. At most, two cages should remain on the left side of the gap. Loft the next Yellow bird through the chains holding the canisters. The resulting explosion should clear the left side and some of the right. Use the last Yellow bird through the “2nd row” from the bottom on the far right to break the remaining cages. The score in the video below is 100,180.

11-12, 117920 w/2 Birds..
1st shot – y/b shot directly at the two sand blocks allowing the two fire extinguishers/chains to fall straight down. BANG!! Great collateral damage!..
2nd shot – y/b cleaned up to close out the level. As simple as that..
Good luck on your 1st shot!.. thx

I think the higher up you break the chains holding the extinguishers, the more damage they do. I just tried the method noted above, breaking the two sand blocks, and the resulting explosion released all the birds on the right stack, also destroying a good half of the crates/barrels, and it displaced some of the components of the left sided stack of things. The second yellow bird I aimed between the two leftmost stacked bird cages, striking into the barrel behind them, which cleaned up the rest. Scored 113,580.

Hey @lesleyg, at least you’re better off than me, I just got a 1 bird kill and it only gave me 98k total.

I’ve noticed that going through the chains vs. the sand blocks really makes no difference in how much damage the extinguishers cause, it all comes down to the luck of the draw, plain & simple.

Well, I think the first shot of letting the fire extinguishers to free fall is rather obvious, but what shocked me is that my first passing score (with the same strategy) was 97970 – 30 from the 3-star min!! *moans* (When I get my updates, I always pass all the levels before improving the scores to 3-star.)

Talk about frustrating!!! I hope someone sees this and answers — I am mostly breaking the sand blocks above the chains, but most of the time there is little (even no) destruction. Any clue as to what determines if there is a lot of destruction or not? Do you hit the sand blocks with a fairly level bird, or one that is descending???

My question really is this: exactly how do you need to hit the sand blocks and/or chains to get the fire extinguishers to explode? That is the only variable you have control over. AB is supposed to be a totally deterministic game, right? By which I mean that there is no random / luck component in the code. Right??? I guess my previous questions were not that clear (I seem to rely on ESP a lot). Hope this is more clear.

Thanks!!! Hitting just below the sand blocks did the trick! It also seemed to work better if I shot the first bird on a more level path and accelerated it on the way up. I don’t think I took out the sand blocks at all. Entire first tower was destroyed; 2nd bird cleared the rest.

By lordlance (@lordlance)Score: 119,970

There seems to be a great deal of randomness involved here. After making nearly identical shots for what seemed like forever, finally got everything to go as described above. Aim for just below the sandblocks and accelerate while on the rise to do so. 119+, everything just cascaded into one another (slowly) to wipe out all the birds. For those that are struggling with this one, keep making that same shot. It will work eventually.

By Vic.Peixinho

Maybe I found a tricky way… Fire the first bird in a ascendant trajectory, right on top of the chains, 25 to 30 degrees. Right after the launch speed the YB. Strangely it seemed easier… I did around 107k with just one bird. Hope it helped!

Total luck on this one. I broke the chains, not the blocks, and mostly they fell causing minimal damage, sometimes they didn’t even explode. My best scores came in one of two ways. The right-hand extinguisher would fall to the bottom without exploding, then blow up when the left-hand one fell on it, causing a larger explosion. The other way had the right one falling to the bottom and exploding, while the left one dropped, had its fall cushioned by the chain, eventually it fell to the bottom and exploded in an already weakened structure base, 3-4 seconds after the first one. This got me my highest score, using only the 1 bird. Still, very difficult to repeat, I’ve come close a couple of times but haven’t been able to match my high score. Whole lot of random luck here.

Needed is to aim high and go through both sand blocks and kill the 2 cages as well to make the structures lighter and then hope for the best of course…

@jaydee It took a few more tries this time, but I just got another 117k score.

I seem to get best results when bird does not touch stacks after going through sand blocks, but sails off screen. When the bird lands on the stacks, it seems to interfere with the already swaying stacks, limiting the destruction.

Then again, maybe I am on a lucky streak and should go try MoE 5-29 again ;)

Thanks @bonneypattycat for additional detail to go with your screenshot — it made me realize that the best results are gotten when YB grazes sand blocks as high and flat as possible while still destroying them. This is how I got 121,550: http://angrybir.de/1d6oLCt — IMO it is easier to aim with delayed acceleration. Also, I think 123-125K is possible on this level.

@bonneypattycat . From what I could gather during the relatively short time I have been involved with the challenges, the order seems to be ABO-Seasons-Rio-Space-SW-SW2. Then each time it would be a level in the next chapter of each AB. Tomorrow will be ABO as today was SW2. Last time was Danger Above, so I think tomorrow is a level in ABO Big Setup, being the next episode. Similarly, I think the next day will be Seasons Back to School (AAARGHH) , because last time was Piglantis and Cherry Blossom before that. I did get the order wrong with Space Danger Zone though.
