Angry Birds Rio Smugglers Plane Walkthrough Level 13 (11-13)

Smugglers’ Plane level 11-13 is very difficult. Our strategy is to use the first Yellow bird to destroy the two wire blocks supporting the left side of the structure. It is important to also break the cage in the middle of the level during this shot, since the debris will make it difficult to do later on. With the next Yellow bird, break the large top plank, causing the tire to fall onto the cage in the bottom-right of the level. The score in the video below is 76,850.

Not sure that it’s the best high score strategy, but…

If you shoot the first bird up high, then you can slam it down on the middle horizontal beam and break it in one shot.

The top beam will start to tilt to the left, but shoot a second bird quickly aimed at the very back cage and the whole structure will come down. Combine this this 1 extra bird and you got yourself an easy 80k.

By bombas238

Except maybe it’s not so easy — I have trouble repeating the first shot haha. You really CAN break the middle beam in on shot! There’s a sweet spot somewhere right along the left lower corner of the blue cage that you have to nail. Keep trying, it’s there.

Be sure not to get too excited when you get it because bird 2 has to fly out quickly.

By Neil

There is a way to shatter the highest long, horizontal board (the one with the two tires and little 45 degree piece of wood on the left end). If you shoot the 1st bird up at about a 45 degree angle and then punch the speed tap to hit the left edge of that long board, it shatters and everything on the right side collapses and frees all the birds except the lower left yellow and red birds. The 2nd shot has to be perfectly placed to take out the yellow bird cage and then hit the red bird cage. With the one bord left 10,000 points, I scored 75600 and 3 stars.

The first shot is actually pretty easy to repeat once you figure out the right trajectory and speed-tap timing. The second shot is a bit harder to accomplish, because the angle has to be just right to clear the tire, take out the yellow cage and still have the down force to break the red cage. But it is fun to see the long board shatter and collapse everything.

You are correct about the first shot. If you hit the top beam and destroy it, you can usually score around 45K and have only the yellow and red bird cages left in the bottom middle. The KEY to your second shot is both placement, and I have found that you DO NOT want to accelerate/speed up the 2nd shot. If you just let the bird fly without speeding it up, it will break through the yellow bird cage and land on the red bird cage breaking it in the process. I am consistently getting around 75K with this method and with a little luck, scores above 80K should be possible.

This also works on the long plank between the blue and yellow bird cages. Of course it’s a near-horizontal shot and really hard to do, but it takes out everything except the wood plank and big tire, which is easy to hit on bird #2

By Androidbirdy

You’re right! It actually worked on the first attempt!

This was the trickiest level of them all in the whole game. I kept trying and trying with the method shown in the video, but the first shot (killing the left yellow, and bottom red birds) did not collapse the whole structure as in the video.

So I tried your method: I sent the first bird high up in the air and slammed onto the middle horizontal bar, left to the blue bird. That resulted in the whole middle bar shattering. My yellow bird then fell onto the red bird cage down below, and the upper horizontal bar came down destroying the yellow bird cage, blue bird cage, and everything on top of the upper horizontal bar. That only left three bird cages to the right: the one with a green and a blue bird, the one with a yellow bird, and the large one with red, blue and green birds. Those three cages I then destroyed with one easy shot. Total score: 78830, and three stars.

Used @bombas238 strategy and @comex666 video, thanks. This was a very difficult level to obtain an aboce average score. Finding the sweet to the left of the blue bird cage was the challenge. It is very close to the left side of the cage. Getting the second bird off into the opening that was closing with falling debris also took some work. Was able to but the two shots together after many tries. I guess practice, practice, practice paid off.

11-13, 86530 w/1 Bird.. Yes! A “one birdie” and so very sweet!..

Targeted the y/b for the base of the yellow caged bird resting on the center plank which (luckily) collapsed as usual, but it was the continued flight of the y/b to the far right through the metal cages allowing the complete upper structure to collapse thus avoiding the customary “quick 2nd shot” to close out the level. Two photos showing the firing angle and trajectory on impact. Hope this helps, good luck! thx..

My strategy should read: “Targeted the y/b for the base of the blue caged bird resting on the center plank”, etc..
This morning I was revisiting 11-13 for extra points, joined my two strategy photos together (above) for the trajectory and realized only then that my “one birdie” had passed through the beam below the base of the “blue caged bird” and not that of “yellow caged bird”. The end result was the same, that has not changed.

Hey Marc,
Glad to see you posting here, always love the way you describe the shots :-) I will have to follow the threads here now more closely.

88,970 w/ 2 birds, but should’ve been a one birder for about 97k. I target the base of the yellow cage, same as your strat above. I accelerate slightly earlier which might contribute to the more downward trajectory after passing through the cage. Pics can say it better, right.

1st at lower metal part of horiz beam where blue cage is sitting on.
y/b has to continue to take out both bigger metal cages that are right of
where the yellow cage was.
Wood/metal beam should rest in a 15° diagonal position.
Quickfire 2nd a little lower to take out the mentioned beam and heavily tip
the lower right wood/metal beam.
Falling stuff will take out this lower right beam and hopfully the big wheel
on the right gets the rightmost cage.

A solid 86K so far hopes to reach 90K on this. Not really nailed it yet. It helps if the top beam and doesn’t fall that fast so and gives you time to aim for the tricky second shot. I had 83K with 3 birds so it is possible with 90K.

“Almost” got a 1 birder several times with “almost” everything destroyed. Maybe someone will be luckier than me.
The shot is though, and similar to Marc and angryGRX but you want to take the cage with yellow bird, metal cage under and both metal cages on the other side. This needs to happen all at once (doesn’t work if a metal cage break after rolling). The beam will fall hard on the two beam at the bottom, breaking. The metal cage on top of the beam will fall on the bottom red bird.
After that with some luck the right part will collapse. I got it to break the bottom right beam twice missing the right most cage each time.
Also got it with only red bird surviving :(

Also got a one-birder. Aim so yb enters just below yellow cage, bounces off second lower wood platform onto red bird cage (or hits it directly). Most everything came down, either leaving an easy second shot like in the video (except aim for the left edge of upper wood platform), or if lucky, everything is destroyed.

There seems to be a very small sweet spot in there somewhere, as I got my score just goofing around with the basic first shot, and after some initial destruction, as well as some delayed destruction, all the scaffold platforms were down, making an easy 2nd shot to the cage on the far right.

The trouble with this is it will probably be a long while before I can duplicate that lucky shot.

While randomly shooting and hoping for luck I realized, I accelerate yellow bird almost always at exactly the same spot so that beam breaks afterwards (manu’s 1-bird strat above).

This spot is somewhere around: HERE

Though total collapse isn’t still that often (1st one-birder after 18 beam breaks), I manage to break beam every ~5 minutes (~12 per hour) from now on.

2 one-birder in 26 beam breaks gave me 93,460 as maximum so far.

May this help!

By higgins (@higgins)Score: 98,830

Normally, it’s more a rough guess.
But in this case I made a screenshot of every single beam break after 1st shot to get the probability of a successful 1-birder.
5 in 61 means about 8%. 1 beam break every ~5 minutes and a sling rate of ~12 per minute means 1/60 = 1,7%.
So the probability for me was ~0.136% (1 in ~735 shots) to achieve a 1-birder here! It’s all about motivation, isn’t it? ;)

Second bird just skimmed over top of pile of rubble, released the big tire and got the last two cages. Finally 3 stars.

@lesleyg, this is one for the books. I was trying to break the center board as stated by some player up above and the bird completely missed and went under the board all the way to the end, whereupon everything started falling apart with freed little birds happily fluttering about.

This is what I call a 1 bird kill total fluke, a stroke of dumb luck, had I been aiming to do that fluky shot, I wouldn’t have gotten it in a million years.

Wow!, I just viewed misterparon’s video of the 1 bird kill and it turns out that’s exactly what my bird did, so that means that my shot was only half a fluke because I got something that I wasn’t aiming for.

I don’t think this level is one of the toughest in AB Rio. I’ve passed this quite easily.
Throw 1st YB 35-40 degree angle but not with full power, it will go through left bird and hit the down most bird as well as the base of right structure just beside the lowest bird. A perfect shot will destroy almost everything except the right cage, destroy it with 2 bird.
This method is enough to give you 83k+
