Angry Birds Seasons Ham Dunk Level 4-2 Walkthrough

Here is our strategy for Angry Birds Seasons Ham Dunk All Star Level 4-2. The score in the video below is 127,530. Note, this video below reveals a glitch where the basketball repeatedly bounces through the hoop, obtaining 5,000 points each time.

Badge Alert! – To be eligible for the “Slam Dunk” badge you need to earn at least 163,000 points in this level. Proof in the form of a screenshot is required. Upload your screenshot to your album then leave a comment below while mentioning @admins.

Update: The glitch was fixed after Tropigal Paradise (Seasons v5.1.0). The level was slightly redesigned to prevent the endless hoop.

To be honest, I’m not even sure if that qualifies as a glitch. The basketball behaves as it should, like every other level. It’s more of an anomaly, the basket was placed too low.

It’s a glitch when the ball keeps bouncing …….. Forever ………. That violates all Laws of Nature. I let it run 24 hours and the ball just kept bouncing. I stopped it 1,515,000,704. It would have kept going forever. That to me is a glitch.

The ball bouncing and losing energy, but netting you 80k or so points before it dies, is not a glitch. I think the 165k cap that was put on is a good indicator of top scores without the glitch.

I don’t want to close entry entirely, so I have set a new cap of 163,000, which is just below @bonneypattycat. This gives flingers something to work for, but keep things from getting out of hand. I think this is the best solution for now.

@birdleader – Does this mean we can enter our “glitch” scores in with a cap of 163,000 or are we suppose to try and obtain that without glitch?

I played this level 100 to 200 times and finally got the glitch to occur and once it started…it was very fast to add up! I went ahead and threw bird two and three as soon as I could which was right after I saw it happening so I wouldn’t end up with a million points… but it still finished at 939590, But it would have continued on a lot higher had I not stopped it.

I play on an original first generation iPad – version 5.1.1. So for those of you that say you can’t get it to happen…you probably can…it took me hundreds of tries to make it happen. Before that, the most I was getting was 3 or 4 “extra” left hoops with a first bird score of 42K+ to 45K+. The 45K+ was with a lucky right basket too and only King Pig remaining after bird one. I usually finished in the mid 90K’s+ on these 3 or 4 basket glitches. @mvnla2 I will mention you here too, as I know you were wondering about the versions and how many tries, etc.

@mvnla2 – Currently at 99k without glitch, I think there is a chance to get a few more thousand there, and maybe three stars. Here is my strat.

First bird Highest arc possible without hitting first red overhead lamp. Drop egg just before hitting second lamp. This should put it between the pig holding the basketball and the speakers, propelling the ball up onto the ramp to roll down through the hoop. Bird rattles around up in the lights and picks up points there before falling on the ramp, usually breaking it, but once rolled through the basket for 5,000 more points. You want the left hand speaker pile to fall over on itself and break here as well. Score ~19-20k

Second bird – High arc, just clearing left speaker stack, dropping egg on left edge of bounce pad to blow TNT and begin destruction of boom box. Bird flies up through basket and knocks pig off the rim.

Third bird under left edge of boom box, expand when under the middle, throwing pieces all over the level to break more stuff.

Last bird bonus 10k

As I said, I am still at 99k and two stars, but there should be enough debris left to pick up another couple thousand and possibly reach three this way.

Rank: Sling God with 27190 points
By MVNLA2 (@mvnla2)Score: 97,580

For me, @burbman‘s first shot has a much higher probability of getting the ball through the left basket. The great advantage is that you have a good aim point for dropping the egg, and the bird is traveling slowly at the top of the arc.
The downside is that the second shot is harder, and that you haven’t gotten rid of the king with the first shot. So far I haven’t been able to improve my 97K using either method.
Additional details on first shot: When Burbman says “First bird Highest arc possible without hitting first red overhead lamp. Drop egg just before hitting second lamp,” he means it. If you aren’t hitting the first lamp occasionally, you’re too far away. It’s almost impossible to drop the egg too close to the second lamp.

I was playing the level a bit differently from the walkthrough, but noticed my score was well below the walkthrough video, so I watched it and noticed the ball bounce a couple times by the hoop. I didn’t think at the time it was a glitch, but just giving a couple more basket scores. It took only a few tries to get a similar result, and only a few more to get my current 162k score. I haven’t tried again since, but I could probably duplicate it again in a hurry. I don’t know how difficult it is to get it going non-stop like @ernor63.

I’m not bothering with this level again. I am hoping @admins will cap this level soon (lower than my current score) to make the total score leaderboard more competitive. Maybe set the cap 10k above the 3-star level, whatever that is.

While trying your strat, I accidentally released the egg just a smidge too soon, and Matilda hit the overhead bouncer, and maybe the one on the right to hit the right ball, which fell through the basket. The right pig also went. I had something like 40K from the first shot. Of course, I couldn’t even get the ball through the left basket. I’ve also seen both the left lamps totally destroyed by the second shot and some lucky metal balls from the third shot. Putting all this together seems a long stretch.

The next two shots were like the video, with the 2nd white bird carcass bouncing back into the TNT on the right for extra damage, and the orange bird into the debris.

@mvnla2 using IOS 8.1.3, I got a good ricochet on right side, hitting the lights, ball and got Matilda through the basket, but haven’t been able to repeat that. Only level I haven’t 3*’d so very frustrating.

@admins, I have a question/concern about the score entry now being closed. I understand why, however those of us who haven’t been able to enter any score will have 1 score/level less than the 28 members whose scores have been entered on the Leaderboard. To keep the boards “equal” between or for all members, shouldn’t the scores already entered be removed so there’s a level playing field if this entry stays closed? If this has been addressed, I’m sorry, but I looked here before positing.

103460 on iOS 8.1.3 a no glitch

Do we have confirmatiom that it IS a glitch? 103460 was fluff icily to achieve. I’m wondering if perhaps it’s not a glitche entirely. To continue to a billion, yes, I get that that’s the glitch. Still… 103k and just three stars. Idk. I’ve been playing for years and never experienced a level like this.

This still works on my old ipod touch with iOS 6.1.6. I got maybe 1 in every 100 times it went through the hoop.

It seems that this will be the first level on all Angry Birds editions that I’m not able to 3-star. On my iPhone 5, iOS 8.1.2 I can’t get the glitch to happen and it looks like there isn’t enough stuff to destroy to get the points for a 3-star score without the glitch, even if you get 2 hoop scores (the left hoop with the ball, the right one with the bird).

Is there anyone who scored 3 stars without using the glitch?

This level is seriously buggy. I am playing on an iPhone 5S. After many many tries, I cannot get the multiple bounce glitch to happen. At most I get 5000 points for going through the basket in the first place, then ONE bounce for an additional 5000 points.

Never have I seen more than one 5000-point bounce.

My “clean” non-PU high score is 98,560 and two stars.

I managed to get three stars with 105,550 using the shock wave power-up. I know that power-up scores are not permitted in the leaderboard, so won’t be entering that score.

I have seen another bug. Sometimes the wooden structure in the middle seems to drift to the left as if pushed by an unseen hand. There is no apparent reason for the drift. It just happens. I’ve seen this many times.

I have some questions.

1. Is it even possible to three-star this level without the shock wave power-up and without the basketball bounce glitch?

2. Did Rovio figure in the shock wave power-up and/or the multiple basketball bounce glitch in figuring the three-star threshold? Do they even realize that on the iPhone 5S, the multiple bounce glitch does not happen?

3. Is Rovio sacrificing their quality standards in an effort to rush out new levels?

One of the reasons I like playing Angry Birds is the fact that every level is winnable (“three-star-able”) eventually. There are very challenging levels, but I can usually see a path to success with the challenging levels and, eventually, get my three stars.

When I can’t even see a path to success without the use of power-ups or this new “glitch” gimmick, then the game is no longer fun but an exercise in frustration. In this very same Ham Dunk series, the Istanbul level is virtually impossible to get a “mighty basketball” 100% without the unpredictable lucky bounce in the ABN walkthrough. After many tries, and only 93% tops, I had to abandon that effort. A game that is virtually unwinnable is no fun.

An excellent comment. It’s really hard to know what Rovio was aiming at with this level, as non-PU, non-glitch three-star scores seem utterly out of reach.

Although as a rule I don’t use PUs, I, too, used the Shockwave bird to reach 105k and three stars because it would annoy me no end to have this level–and only this level–at two stars. But, then, after doing that and having played the level dozens and dozens of times with no glitch (on my iPod Touch) in sight suddenly the glitch happened, and, although I tried to leave the level as quickly as possible, I still ended up with a million points. Ridiculous.

Rovio needs to do something. Now. Not 3 months from now, or whenever the next planned update of Seasons might be. And, yes, the evidence that they’re routinely releasing insufficiently game-tested levels has become overwhelming.

It seems to me that Rovio is making a few levels in each new release nearly impossible to 3* without using PUs. May just be my opinion.

Maybe Rovio simply wants players to use PU and (in next upgrades) force them to BUY PU?

For some AB players using PU is some kind of dishonour but for the others it’s the normal way of playing. If there’s more such levels in AB, the more players would buy PU…

It’s only my opinion.

I have only 2 stars with “clean” playing, as @daboid has written. With score about 94-95 k (one bird left). Level seemed to be almost clean of debris.

I saw this glitch only two times, but without several-million-scores in my case (max 102k – still no 3 stars).

@mvnla2 you could be right. I’m suffering now several days on 4-9 although it also could be a lack of skills. Days and days I’m playing this one, but still 2 stars. Never had this experience. 2 stars!!

Buggy it is!
Once i accidentally dropped an egg right after the launch. And guess what?? It was floating in the air, slowly to the right, and only dropped and exploded once it had reached a location to the right of the first concrete surface below the launching pad. No, it wasn’t travelling on that concrete, it was clearly floating above it. Simply unconvincing.

Anyone got the feather on this level yet? Damage at the end seems to be all over the place. Got both basketballs and almost all debris, 39%. Best is 97% but there was lots of stuff not destroyed, including both basketballs

@syrus – I’ve just managed to get the feather! I sent the first Matilda to drop her bomb immediately on the wood below the sling her carcass did a small amount of damage on the right side of the level, then I quickly launched the ball to replace the pig on top of the boom box – I still had some debris left but gained 100% – good luck

@earthbound‘s solution is the way to go in case anyone else else is having trouble getting the ‘feather’ on this level like I was: ball carrier to replace the pig on the boom box seems to be the key. I tried other ways with practically no debris remaining but couldn’t get over 40%…what????? Put the carrier on top of the boombox and got 100% on the first try (& with much more debris left over). Interesting level to say the least!

I still haven’t managed Total Destruction with the Mighty Eagle (Mighty Ball) in this one, but thanks to your tips I think I got some pretty good insights:

– the important thing is to destroy the 3 small “iron” balls next to the TNT boxes;
– it helps causing some destruction on the left side of the level (immediately next to the sling platform) but being careful not to disturb the central “boombox”;
– to be able to correctly place the Ball Carrier “replacing” teh pig on top of the boombox (the crowned one, with the purple cap and foam finger), it helps to take it out first with some other bird (not the orange one!) but again, careful not to disturb the boombox structure.

Hope this helps! ;o)

If you can bomb the closest ball to the slingshot backwards through the net and then either drop the ball on the net through the net or get one bird through on a rebound you’re far more likely to get the 100%. Just got it on my second go. :)

@syrus – just got the feather too, but I think this feature is as flawed as everything else about this level. I’ve had what seems to be a complete clear of debris, and scored only 33%. This time I had several planks and other debris and got 100%. So no idea whatsoever what triggers “total destruction”. It’s nonsense really. Perhaps Rovio will acknowledge they have messed up here and fix it?

This level is so completely out of line it’s not even funny. Who quality tested this level at Rovio? I’ve pulled this level over 100 times and haven’t even gotten 2 stars yet and I’m an experienced flinger. This is beyond the pale if you ask me!

By Keane Adrian

It’s not a glitch.look very carefully here. You need to get the first ball to barely bounce so when it goes backwards towards the net it is doing so as purely a role and without bounce. I got 45k on that first ball. From there it was easy to get 130k. That said it is the hardest level I’ve ever tried and took an hour!
