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.

I agree. To base a solution on a program bug (not a feature, I was a C programmer and instructor), is pretty lame.

Agreed, a very poor move from Rovio. Players shouldn’t have to rely on glitches or optional power-ups to achieve game-introduced goals (in this case, getting three stars). I’ve been at this for over an hour and am stuck at 99k. I see no way to normally meet the three-star threshold.

Ah, I spoke too soon! Finally nailed it, although the ball stopped at around 126k. Bombed the TNT with second Matilda and threw Bubbles into the middle, which cleared it with one bird left. Final score was 193,170 which should qualify me for the badge. @admins

3 star withou the glich. Start the level the way the video shows it. First 2 birds the same. If you dont get the glich, the way to finish the level is to use one of the State Farm shock birds to take out the pigs left in the middle. That leaves 2 birds to bump up your score by 20,000 points. I got 109,000+ this way.

Hi @mismiz1962. Hope you don’t mind me mentioning, but it doesn’t help players wanting to compete on the leaderboard, as power-up scores are not allowed.

There is another glitch as well. Somehow (I didn’t see how), the basketball held by far left pig rolled back into the goal under the launcher and racked up mega points. My final score on the level was 653,490, and it only stopped because I got the last pig with a subsequent bird.

New stratagy if like me you have had trouble getting the glitch to get moving. Aim slightly down as in video, but blow up bridge to hoop instead. The white carcass will take out the right side pig, get a basket, and/or blow up the dynamite on the right. Take the next shot as if it was the first just a little higher for rebound points like the first shot. The Orange bird as in video. Even if the ball is still not under the hoop, or if it has not activated the glitch you still have one more chance to get the ball bouncing. I am on iPad 2 and I have had no luck with the first shot as in video, but with the last shot I was able to send the ball backwards and get the glitch started and running until the clock ran out. I hope this helps someone get a three star score.

I finally 3-starred this level. Didn’t use the glitch, since I haven’t gotten it to produce even 1 additional hoop bonus on my iPhone 5.

What I did was roughly this:
– First Mathilda, almost exactly horizontal. Drop the eggbomb where it pops the pig and pushes the ball through the hoop. When done right, Mathilda will bounce through the right hoop and pop the rightmost pig. Iirc, some damage was also done to the rightmost lamp.
– Second Mathilda, I intended to send her just over both speaker towers and drop the eggbomb on the left bouncepad to blow the dynamite and possibly also send this bird through the right hoop. But I blew it (finger slipped just before launch), Mathilda hit the left top speaker and king pig in the face.
– Third bird, since the wooden construction started to move left after the bad previous shot and this has proved to be a bad situation regarding possible scores, I fired the orange bird straight in the middle of the construction before blowing it. I guess I had some luck, because all remaining pigs popped and the debris caused the TNT to explode, cleaning most of what was left of the level.

The resulting score is 107350, good for 3 stars and renewed trust in Rovio.

By Aaron

I had something similar happen. With the first two birds I took out everything except the birs to the left and right at the bottom of the wooden structure. My score was low, and I was thinking about restarting, but I decided to complete the level by using the Orange bird to take out the rest of the wood structure and blow up the TNT to its right. For some reason this triggered a mammoth explosion, wiping out the remaining structure with debris flying everywhere for a final score of 119970. Could I replicate that outcome? I’m not optimistic, but I do have to say that it is possible to get three stars without a glitch…..


Finally got 3 stars but cannot get above 98 % with the “mighty eagle” feature. Is anyone gonna post a video of this feature soon?


Getting the “mighty eagle” is impossible on this level. Has anyone gotten it yet? I’m stuck on 98%. Sure would like to see a video of it beening done.

I have not been able to get the ball to bounce and score enough points for a 3* until today. I am using an Android tablet. I must have played this level several hundred times and my high score was 97K on one play a week ago where I fluked several extra dunks I don’t normally get.

Waking up this morning I had an inspiration to play this level fully zoomed in. On my second try, I scored 117K which included 61K with my first bird. I have only managed to get the extra bounces once more in 15 miutes of play and that was only an extra two bounces.

I think the screen resolution and zoom setting may explain the variation in success people are having with this level.

“I think the screen resolution and zoom setting may explain the variation in success people are having with this level”

It could be true. I have Samsung Galaxy Y – not very good device. I saw the glitch only 2-3 times (with 3-5 bounces). I haven’t get 3 stars so far…

This is just ridiculous. I’ve gotten a couple of 5000 point “bounced” at the left basket and even combined it with the power-up to see what’s required for three stars. And I’m yet to break 100000, and nowhere the average.

Ok, with some more 5000 point “bounces” I finally got my three stars and reached above average. Hate this level.

After about a total of two hours (lame I know), I got the glitch to trigger and could’ve waited a little longer to rack up a multi-million point score, but I got impatient and finished the game with 652,275! It was a pyrrhic victory.

By udippel

Wow, Lousy.
I had 1.5+ million with the ball bouncing forever. I simply launched the others to get it stopped and not run into some overflow. Too stupid: I didn’t try to kill the pigs, just to stop it. It had run up to 1 million in maybe half a minute. So it wasn’t noted as final score.
Luckily two hours later I had 160000+ before it stopped clocking up. Then I carefully took all the time to finish it off.

Only in case you also find yourself in the neverending ball bouncing clock++.

You don’t need to use the glitch. You can use Shockwave bomb. For Rovio using power-ups does not count as cheating.

I have figured out what gives you the biggest boost to your damage percentage in this level. It is the 3 metal balls next to the TNT boxes. Each one seems to be worth 20-30%. When you replace the pig on the boombox with the ball carrier, the “mighty eagle” destroys the 3 metal balls. That is why you can only get over 40% using this method.

The key is to destroy as much as possible without touching the boombox at all. Then as your last step, replace the pig on the boombox with the ball carrier.

Otherwise just make sure you eliminate those 3 balls at all costs!

I tried to get a 3* video without having to depend on the glitch, but I didn’t get more than 93k. I am on an iPad Air iOS 7.0.4 and needed to repeat the bouncing ball a LOT of times. Never got the glitch to work longer than a couple of bounces. My best crazy bounce netted me a score of 169100, which I think “JUST” qualifies for the Slam Dunk badge. @admins I know I can award the badge myself, but that just seems wrong ;)

Can’t believe it took me a whole week to get the 3-star (with quite a few phantom baskets that gave me 75k after the first shot).
Usually I don’t take scores that exploit self-destruction/glitches, but for a level that is glitched by default, one really can’t help. You don’t understand the feeling of a player who needed that extra basket for the final star, just like an NBA team that needs that last win to get the final spot into the Playoffs.

Basically did the same strategy as e-star in dropping the egg.

This level did provide a challenge in getting the egg to roll to the left after hitting the stair steps just to the right of the left basket. It appears there is a natural bounce that occurs and if the bounce is high enough the points are provided. The bounce would start on a number of occasions but would not produce any points.

Was able to obtain 10-20k if the bounce started when the bb was rolling to the right prior to hitting the stair steps but in the majority of attempts it would stop rolling after hitting the rim.

By WillieBee

After dropping an egg with the first bird off and on for DAYS to get the ball through the hoop to rack up extra 5k points before moving on to the second bird – and FAILING to generate more than an extra 5k, I tried something new: slam the white bird DIRECTLY INTO THE BALL without dropping an egg at all. Hit precisely on the left of the ball with the bird and you’ll create enough momentum to send the ball through the hoop and rack up a number of 5K’s. I picked up 45K on one first bird, along with the far left pig. My second bird I sailed low over the middle mass, then dropped an egg just to the right of the dynamite, exploding it, while the bird angled up to the spring board above the far right hoop, which sent the bird through the hoop and into the pig below. The third bird I sent low and underneath the middle mass of pigs and whatever that is they’re connected to, leading to a thorough blowing up of everything remaining. Final score was around 108,000 for three stars, considerably less than what I’ve seen reported here, but good enough.
