Angry Birds Seasons Wreck the Halls Level 1-17 Walkthrough

Wreck the Halls level 17 can be challenging. Our strategy is to loft the White bird over the main structure, dropping its egg just left of the TNT. With a little luck, the blast from the TNT should pop all pigs on the right-hand-side and the present as well. Fire the Yellow bird horizontally into the bottom of the wooden structure. Land the Orange bird on top of the horizontal stones. Its rapid expansion should pop the remaining pigs. The score in the video below is 69,890.

77900 3stars! first attempt!
first bird: destroy the whole tower on the left
second bird: high in the air to the tnt!

maybe a onebirder is possible when the first shot lets the tower fall on the right side at the tnt!

also the feather is very easy and possible without slinging a single bird!

White Bird: Shoot it up high and lay the egg to destroy the woods above the TNT. Usally, it will take out the right structure and the TNT box.
Yellow bird: shoot it at the bottom wood. It will make the wood structure fall to the left. The pig on the right side of the structure might fall down and pop.
Orange bird: take out the pig under the stone. You can shoot it straight and pop it

@duffy a moon shot is when you aim the yellow bird basically straight up and boost (tap) it immediately as it leaves the slingshot. It should disappear off the screen & come down on the right side. It’s useful to get at structures you can’t reach because something is in the way. Also takes a bit of practise but it’s fun to watch. Good luck :)

2nd: y/b to take out the tnt. 28,000 points. Although in my 95k I missed the tnt but got it on the 3rd shot.

3rd: o/b low arc just above the first pig’s head and into the bottom left wood block of the first structure. Detonate when it rolls up to the concrete block and hopefully the concrete on the right of the first structure will tumble down.

Very nice strategy! A couple of other suggestions if I may be so bold :)

1. Oddly enough I found I was actually able to get a couple thousand more points on the first shot by NOT detonating the egg just letting the wb knock into the concrete blocks part of the V

2. I was having a bit of trouble getting yellow to clear the little bell on the right top side of the main wooden structure so I went with the “moon shot”. Pull yellow straight down then just a few pixels to the left then do the classic quick double click “moon launch” shot that takes him basically out of screen and then he will land almost perfectly on the TNT! Just a suggestion in case anyone else was having trouble clearing the annoying little bell :)

Rest just like dark cloud posted … and with his ob shot was even able to get some debris to magically go through the concrete without breaking it (amazing!) to get the present underneath for a bonus 3K a couple of times

Thanks again for the strategy!

I followed this method, 1st shot didn’t take out the TNT so followed with the yellow bird, but totally flubbed it – only had about 18k after 2 birds. Third shot through the low vertical wood of left tower, I inflated as it passed the blue ornament. Falling debris detonated the TNT for more points. There’s a lot of points in the tumbling stone.
I tried the other methods with less success, there are comments about inflating the OB against the stone blocks on the left to topple the tower but I could never get it to move much of anything.

Rank: Sling God with 45425 points
By karen68 (@karen68)Score: 103,580

I stuck with this method for the challenge today, dropping the egg in the “V” with the 1st shot, 2nd a moonshot to the TNT & the orange bird into the structure.
It’s all about finding that sweet spot for inflating the OB, which seems to be central under the blue ornament. I was trying to send OB in on more of an arc through the top half of the thick vertical wood block, thinking that maybe if it landed more at the middle of the stone plank instead of rolling along it first it might give more of a downward push when inflating in order to get those hollow stone blocks to move. I have no idea if that’s what actually happened, it’s a small target to hit & it was hard to tell. It was just a thought.

This is what 103k looked like, I got almost complete destruction of the structure but left a lot of points on the ground on the right.

Doing something wrong? I’ve made the wb no egg “v” shot dozens of times without very much happening. I’m consistent with destroying right structure when I use the egg. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

By Trublu

Experimenting with combination strategy. WB to take most of left structure. YB moonshot (brilliant idea) to demolish right side. OB to finish right. Only 91k so far but with some fine tuning (& luck), just might be on to something. Thanks for suggestions fellow birders.

1 birder – 89800. Fire the white bird just over the head of the left most pig, and drop the egg just before hitting the wooden tower, right at the last moment. Egg lands on the stone upright block, if timed to perfection will destroy the pig in the middle of the stones and throw debris to the right, pushing the other tower to the right to destroy right most pig and present. If very lucky, you’ll get the TNT as well. I got low 80000 score a number of times with this approach, but only got the TNT once for the 89800 score with the 3 bonus birds.

98,460 with one bird. This is repeatable as I was able to pull it off on three consecutive tries. Scores were 85,600, 83,450 and 98,460.

I flew the white bird slightly over the first pig’s head and dropped his egg as close to the structure as possible. Debris flew down and collapsed the lower structure causing it to fall on the present and two stone blocks broke through the wood plank detonating the TNT. My first two scores were without the added destruction via the TNT.

Good luck! :)

Thanks to @karen68 for this one! I’ve been trying off and on for two days to improve my score on this one. I couldn’t even match my existing high score trying all methods above. (Except @karen68 ‘s method. I guess I somehow skipped over it.)

Orange bird into the heart of the fully intact left wooden tower is the key.

1st shot: Lob Matilda over the left structure and release egg to detonate TNT.

2nd shot: Lob Chuck over the left structure and try to do as much damage to the rubble on the right as possible. Be sure to get that gift if it is still there.

3rd shot: Zoom all of the way in. Pull the orange bird down until his top tail feather is just below the lower edge of the gray marking/accent on the purple mountain in the background. This should launch him through the lowest, vertical wood on the untouched tower. Inflate him in the middle as he passes the blue ornament. This will blast the whole tower apart. Although I haven’t done it yet, it seems possible to get the second gift box this way.

This is the only method I’ve tried that has consistently yielded 75K+ scores.

1. WB over the top of the left hand side structure, aiming to drop the bomb in the v shaped opening in the right hand side structure. However, sometimes she does as much damage if you slam her into the stone wall on the right of the v without dropping the bomb
2. YB line his nose up with the sling shot and move forward a couple of pixels. Tap screen once to release and immediately again to boost. Should be a direct hit on the TNT. You need 30+k here to get a high score.
3. OB onto the stone to the right of the first pig’s head and detonate immediately. With some luck mega destruction and piggy massacre ensues!
4. 10k bonus

@kathy, I can’t figure out where to drop that egg! In looking for the “V” @karen68 mentioned, I see largely wide V between the right-hand side of the first tower and the small wooden plank leaning on the TNT, and a narrow squeak of a V between that wooden plank and the outside edge of the second cement structure (directly above the TNT…? Do you know where I should be dropping the egg? I’m also having YB trouble. I keep hitting the first tower instead of making it past it to the tnt. This is hard!

@mecstaveler it’s the V formed by the 2 wooden blocks over the TNT & the vertical stone blocks that make up the left side of the right structure. But it’s not crucial to drop the egg, even if the white bird hits the top 2 of those stone blocks you can still knock the top of the right structure over, just as if you’d dropped the egg & get practically the same # of points, setting up the 2nd shot.
This is a tough level, although I have to admit I liked it, you have to execute 3 good shots instead of a 1-birder. Best of luck to you! :)
