A good strategy for Piglantis level 2-9 is to loft the Blue birds through the icy bridge between the second and third towers. At the least, the last tower should end up in the ocean, but perhaps you can manage a bit more. If only one tower is gone, use the Boomerang bird to detonate the TNT in the middle tower.
3-star Threshold Change: In the v2.5.0 (Back to School) update, the 3-star threshold for this level was raised from 100,000 to 102,000. We have asked Rovio whether this was an intentional and will report back if we get a reply. In any case, we have uploaded a new video that earns 3 stars no matter what, with a score of 103,940.
Bug Fix: The threshold has returned to 100,000.
3* = 100650
Blue birds as above, send directly down on icy bridge. Green bird into second tower low. This isn’t different than text above, just maybe more details.
I lucked out out, 1 bird! Score 107,030. I did like stated above, I shot the 1 blue bird between the 2nd and 3rd columns and I split them when the bird was starting to enter in between the 2nd and 3 columns. Everything fell just right, TNT exploded, etc… and I had 3 left overs birds. Just a lucky shot, but do-able!! GOOD LUCK!!!!
Same Strat. One bird. Lucky Shot. Only 4-5 pieces of wood or stone left.
But for the Moment my First Top Score since….. A Long Time ago.
Same strategy – thank you.
I didn’t think it was possible but happened just as you outlined.
Got the same result, you need the TNT to explode to get it right.
One bird 103610 just lucky that the TNT exploded in the right way
one bird, thanks for this, before it took all the birds
104,520 one bird…the TNT exploded just right
same here – one bird 106,130, broke both glass bridges and the rest just went
There is always the “Golden pixel” if you hit it, almost or all will come down.
Very nice strat. Innovative, simple and very repeatable. Great job! Got 105k the first time I tried it.
The 1 birder seems quite easy here. It doesn’t even matter how exactly you hit the gap between the 2nd and 3rd tower as long as the horinzontal ice bar (and maybe the vertical one on the right below) breaks. The key to explode the TNT is the stone triangle on top of the 3rd tower which should fall to the left and destroy enough of the lower structure so that some falling debris hit the TNT.
so do I!!! i’ve got 109200 with one bird, ( blue same as the video )
For a one Birder you have to aim between the second and Third tower.
Excellent strat Goober, took a few tries, but it works, good job.
Same start here! Split just as entering gap between 2 & 3 then need a little luck to ensure the concrete blocks take out the ice blocks – thanks for sharing
Did the same one bird shot between the second and third columns. Split late to take out the blue board. And fall below. Thanks for posting Goober. If the blues rolled to left side of thee blue plank and get stuck I just reset because the triangle stone will not break the other blue plank.
blue bird into left hand tower to break through icy tower
boomerang high up and down to break the right ice bridge, curling slightly back towards the TNT.
I got 102730 :)!!
Hey, @peegue02. You might consider posting your scores on the leaderboards rather than here on the walkthroughs. That way, you would know how your score match up with other flingers.
Generally, as it says above, the good folks who run the Nest prefer to reserve this space for commenting on strategies.
Wow! Worked on this one for hours with my own method and couldn’t get doodly. So, watched the video, shot the blue birds and got it in one shot with a score of 106,220. Thanks as always!
Lol worked on this for a long time. Couldn’t figure it out and looked at the strategy and got everything on the first bird on my first try!! 110550
I had so much trouble with this level for some reason. Everyone above makes it sound so easy. I was easily able to three star this level but I could not figure out how to get above average which at the time started at 104k+ and then kept creeping up. It wasn’t until I came here and saw how everyone was getting a one birdie that I realized. I however was still NOT able to get the one birdie but did manage to get 109530 with two birds.
So for those of you that can’t get the one birdie. I am posting to let you know you can still get above average with two birds. I aimed for the same shot as others but just couldn’t get the darn tnt to explode, ever!!! So I had a great first shot that took out all of the right and everyting in the middle right down by tnt but it did not explode. Basicall everything on the right and middle was gone EXCEPT the tnt, lol so I sent Boomerang in to come back and nail it. I’m happy with my score though ;-)
Thanks for the encouragement, @lesleyg. This and 2-10 are the only ones I haven’t 3starred and I finally came here. I have been doing just what the video shows, but ughhhh! I hope whining will do the trick. Whine. Whine. Whine.
I should have known when I saw the green bird that I’d have trouble here.
3stars- just barely! Whine factor still works. I still don’t like the green birds. I think I’ll just wait on getting above average.
@wanda…Keep at it, you will get it. I came here to read your mention to me and this time you encouraged me to give it another try and I finally got the one birdie!!! I wish I had a new tip for you but I think it’s just a matter of luck and playing it over and over until the tnt ignites with first bird. GL ;-)
Ty @lesleyg for encouragment:) I’ve been reading all the tips here and patience finall paid off. I was only at 100k today ..and have improved up to 110+ wish this was the challenge lol..anyway ty all for all tips iread them all and now above average:) for now anyway lol;)
Yay! @kathy…Great job and you are very welcome ;-) Looks like @wanda got it too! Tough level ;-)
@lesleyg, yes, it (the one birder) finally happened! I am glad to leave this one for awhile :). I still dislike the green birds. Good job, @Kathy! This level was so hard!
Oh wow! A one-birder! I arched the blue bird so that it started coming down between the 2nd and 3rd towers, splitting it almost at the last moment, so the glass bridge received full impact. The third tower started leaning towards the middle, but seemed to come to stop with the stone triangle resting on the middle tower. I was about to retry, when I noticed tiny movements… In slow motion, it continued collapsing into the middle tower, pushing it into the first. Finally, a block from the first tower tumbled onto the TNT, and that was it! I know my high score won’t last long, but YAY!!!
Same here…slight movement caused me to wait – glad I did!
I did exactly the same. Split blue just coming over the second tower, triangle stone from top of third tower then broke the first ‘layer’ of glass in the middle of the second tower, rest came down in slo-mo. Third tower toppled right into the water. First tower had already toppled towards second tower before nail-biting wait to see if TNT exploded, which it just towards the end to clear anything that was left. I was playing on holiday (hangs head in addiction-shame!) and had no idea the score was so good so didn’t bother with a screenshot, sorry (not that I know how to upload anyway, der).
If you can’t get the one-birder to work, you might want to use the ‘reverse-boomerang’ method on the second bird.
This seems to be more destructive, plus aiming is easier.
ye funny one this. I’ve 112k with 1, but 111k with two. If your first doesn’t do enough damage reverse boomerang into the first structure.
Is anyone else getting the SECOND tower destroyed using this method? But not the third? I’m hitting the icy bridge on the right but somehow the birds are kind of bouncing around the 2nd tower and it falls except for the TNT, and the third tower doesn’t do much at all. And that’s when I can get the birds to split and break the bridge in the first place. I can’t seem to get that aim down at all. Too far to the left, too far to the right…
Here’s a 112,600 with two birds
Got me a one birdie on this level, Same shot as the video on top, just lucked out. So for all of you, just keep at it, it will happen.
Here is my video.
Got one bird shot first time after watching walk through for 111440. But that doesn’t even get you into you the top 100 on the leader board. I have tried for hours and have gotten one bird shots but can’t top my first score. I will usually stick with level until I can get in the top 50 if possible (min top 100 if I just can’t get there after days). I was about to give up and move on, but I watched your video and it gave me the motivation to keep trying.
Thank you E-Star for your videos! I always look for them as alternative to the walk through to reach for high score (not just 3 star ).
Finally did it, 113670 with one bird , 24th place for now! I just kept at it, flinging BB like in video and it finally took out enough wood and ice/glass to add up. That is the trick, need to get enough debris for the points.
Thank you E-Star for your posting.
Thank you so very much for your video (& all other videos)! I was finally able to get 3 stars & above average after only 2-3 attempts by following your video guidance. Of course, before watching I tried numerous times & couldn’t get above 2.
Alternative strategy for anyone who is having trouble getting 3 stars and doesn’t care if they get a top score…… Aim the blue bird straight at the middle ice of the first column. Try to get as much damage as possible. Arc the boomerang bird up so that it goes between the second and third columns, like the blue bird in the video. Activate the boomerang just a little above the columns so the bird comes down on the ice, but to the left side. It is much easier to get the TNT to explode with the boomerang bird than with the blue bird. You can expect scores not much more than 100,000 so this isn’t going to help anyone who is looking to do anything but just get three stars.
I was able to get my 3 stars with 1 bird, but I couldn’t find that sweet spot for total destruction. Though the second tower was totally destroyed, the first and second towers always had some wood and glass left behind…whine? Whine whine…
I think rovio has changed the minimum for 3 stars on seasons piglantis 2-9. It happened today along with back to school update.
I have 101k and only 2 stars now… the walkthrough video is also no longer accurate.
Is it wanted or just a bug? (like rio carnival upheaval 8-5 last year)
Interesting, I know on AB original they changed level 3-5 and the minimum 3 star scored changed as well. Can you tell if this level is actually any different?
It is very possible that they changed the minimum.
@yoruichi, so you had three stars and the update lowered your level to two stars, correct?
yes @sal9 !
I had 90/90 and unlocked the big shell which is still available.
@thetoddman23 I don’t see any difference except for the background image; the 3 rocks disappeared, it’s just water.
Indeed, the background is missing the arched “red rock island”.
I can confirm that the new threshold is: 102k (101550 2*/102610 3*)
ok I’ll get those 310 points :)
This excatly happened to me too!
My original score was 100750 – 3 stars back then (I know because I have the 3-star seashell) and was 2 stars after the update today.
I played again and got 114230 – now 3 stars again…
Went back to get the extra 2,000 to three star again again… and fluked a one-birder for 110,000. Don’t ask me how I did it. I thought I was following the video!
I flung the blue bird at the second column but it did nothing but I kept on going. I flung the boomerang bird at the bottom of the first column. The wood and stone from there hit the TNT. Almost everything was gone. My score was 106,080! And 3 stars!
102,460 One bird up in high arc to land between the last two, on the ice bridge. That brought it all down. May have been a lucky shot, but I’ll take it.
Wow!! Thanks for the tip! I managed, more by luck than by skill!, to get the blue birds to take out the bridge between 2nd and 3rd towers. This made 3rd tower fall into the second and one blue bird hit the top of the 2nd. This took out both towers and all piggies on them except one small on the TNT. Took boomerang bird and hit the first which toppled and blew up the TNT and any else. I managed to get 104600. All because of the tip. You all are awesome!
In order to get a one-birder consistantly you would need to get the blue birds to break through at least two of the three long horizontal glass blocks inbetween the 2nd and 3rd towers.
You could deflect the blue birds off of the 3rd tower into the glass blocks, or you could hit them straight on, which is what I did, on the first attempt, which I kinda feel bad for, because it looks like flingers have spent days trying to get the one birder:)
Thanks for the video, I have tried to get 3 stars on this level for a while
OMG I think Rovio put that TNT Into a lead reinforced wooden box, it hardly ever explodes.
Woot, 118! Thanks @e-star and many others
Here a screenshot of the score. I didn’t realize it, otherwise I would have taken a picture of the remaining debris.
I don’t expect this to be the final highscore: Seasons Piglantis 2-9
Nice toss @bernersenn was that 1 bird or two? I haven’t broken 111 with one but I, as others, noticed that there are 10k in points left in that first structure, so if you are near 80 with one and haven’t broken 110, reverse remi is the way to go.
@knichy I played the same as in the video of @e-star
Hence, one bird, but a lot of retries
Thanks @bernersenn I guess for now I’ll be happy with 2 birds for 114
