Angry Birds Space Cold Cuts Level 2-12 Walkthrough

The best strategy for Cold Cuts level 2-12 is to follow the directions. Send the Lazer bird counterclockwise around the planet, then redirect it vertically through the top pig. The other three will fall downward and the structure should trigger the TNT.

I cannot get past this level (CC2-12)! Can easily get the pigs on the planet, cannot get the one up top – any suggestions? Thanks :)

By Bruno

Finishing the level is easy; just fling the bird counterclockwise so that it orbits the planet and heads between the hanging pigs and the one up top. Then tap the screen so that it zooms into the pig up top. Finish the level with two birds remaining.

Problem is, that only gives you one star. How to get three? Well, that’s what I came here for. I’m stumped. I’ve tried knocking one of the asteroids into the metal structures, using up the other two birds for more destruction points… nothing. High so far is 75170. I can’t figure out where the necessary points for three stars would be.

Keep at it. The main thing is to aim it at the top pig so that all the pigs fall down and the monst important thing is to blow out the TNT. Hope it helps!

88620 got three stars I had to fling the first bird shallow around the planet, which caused the bird to come in low on the planet, I then waited for the bird to be directly beneath the top pig, and tapped the light above the top pig, with the long stretch before the bird hits it has enough speed to take out the light and the end of the bridge will blow up the TNT.

I agree aiming your first bird for an initially shallow orbit around the planet gives you the highest chance of getting the bridge end to take out the TNT. I think the TNT explodes about 2 out of 3 tries. Exploding the TNT should get you a score of 80K, then hope for a bunch of other destruction to get the 3 stars. It only took about 6 or 7 tries of repeating this method to get my current score of 89K.

Hi @lesleyg, I also did it by putting the crosshairs on the light above the pig, and it worked the first time when it gave me 91620, but I’ve done it at least 200 more times and the score won’t budge.

BTW, I changed my nickname again, it seems there was another Madbird fluttering around already.

But when I tap the bird to try to get the pig outside the orbit, it never goes toward the planet. It goes the opposite direction.

By Richard

This level is messed up. I’ve done the procedure shown in the video DOZENS of times and that TNT won’t blow up. And when it does blow up, the score isn’t high enough. This level needs to be fixed.

There is a much more consistent way of getting the TNT to blow up than shown in the video: aim the bird at a shallow trajectory so that it comes in below the three hanging bubbles. Tap when just below the third bubble from the left, so that it takes out that bubble and then goes on to collapse the structure as in the video.

With the third hanging pig gone, the balance of the structure is different and the TNT will explode pretty much every time.

By GFish (@gfish)Score: 86,230

A few tips for getting it right:
– you have more chance to blow it up if the tip of the ‘arm’ touches the tnt first. Therefore, shooting fast (when the arm still swings) might help.
– shooting at a high angle makes the shot more controllable, because lazer will move somewhat slower.

The arm was swinging like crazy when I got this score. Sometimes it barely seems to bounce, but my higher scores have all come when it’s moving significantly.

I used your strategy and I learned two things – mainly that you can put the purple marker thing where you want it which is fantastic. but I scored with one bird – using your method, 85160 and got three stars!!!! WOOP WOOP!!

By David

1)Launch your purple bird around the planet and tap to launch into the stone triangle at the base of the stone arm.
2)Tower will collapse and enter gravitational field,destroying the structure.The blinking yellow LED will hit the trinitrotuluene crate and obliterate the structure.93k.

By using these tips + the one from GFish (shooting fast) you can get score around 90k.

Congrats on the puppy @gypsybird! 10 points still does the trick. You really do rock in Space!
@mvnla2 I’ve been using the tip from @f91jsw above, going in under the hanging bubble pigs & tapping the top pig so the bird takes out the right hanging pig, or hits the bubble it’s in, on the way up. I play zoomed out, but aiming the bird just over the heads of the birds waiting in line gets you to the right spot. The timing takes some practice, & I think the only real advantage is that it explodes the TNT pretty well every time. Then it’s just rinse & repeat.

Thanks @josephine and @karen68! It was so nice to get another puppy for sure.

I tried the under the pig shooting to the top pig but my Laser bird just kept flubbing and hitting the asteroid and hurting his little head. So I did the over the right hanging pig and then firing up. It is still a rinse and repeat as @karen68 points out.

A couple of observations I noted while improving on my Android phone during today’s Challenge from 90020 to 91400 in painfully small increments. In addition to closely reading all of today’s comments (too many to cite,) I looked at the screenshot @gypsybird provided for her newest puppy.

In checking pic for what I’ll call the “Lazer Tap Release, ” I see 3 dots in the vertical line between LTR (Lazer Tap Release) & circular gravity field…when playing around with initial trajectory, I noted that to only have these 3 dots after release you need to launch to evenly hug gravitational field during the flight before LTR. Adjust for your device.

Instead of full force slingshot, I reduced power in the hope to enable a more accurate LTR aiming at bubble/light above top piggie. It seems to me that the power of launch isn’t required here.

My scores did improve after I switched to zoomed in vs zoomed out. Lastly, while it may seem like an “of course I knew that” observation, for me, the difference between 90k & a little over 91k was getting the snowball just right of the bottom pig. To do that, I needed the rectangular stone above upper helmeted pig to crash onto the snowball.

It’s certainly not easy & I’m more than 1000 from a TopScore so there’s lots more to it than this : -(, but the Challenge isn’t ending for almost 2.5 hrs, so there’s still hope.

…and Congrats @gypsybird on your newest puppy!

By GypsyBird (@gypsybird)Score: 92,680

Thanks @justpast40! I just noticed your post. Yes, I think I did end up using slightly less power on the launch. The snowball definitely has to bite the dust too – those points are essential. This level is not easy to get higher scores. I think it even too me a long time originally to get the 3 stars actually. I played this one a lot.

ColdCuts 2-12 will probably circle around on the Challenge schedule again, so keep on flinging. There could be a few more points there. Just depends on which way the tower crumbles.

Arigatō @thee-michelle. I was flinging the bird the same way originally for 90k, but last night it finally clicked and gave me 2k more. I had even looked up from my iPhone and was about to restart it when I realized the score had jumped over 72 on first bird. It was a bright moment in my day for sure.

@GypsyBird — Congrats on the puppy! There must be some additional tips that would help the flinging-challenged like me. Would sure appreciate some.
Noticed that both you and video play zoomed in. So how exactly do you aim? I’m thinking you must line up trajectory on the slingshot, but not sure exactly where. Both of you also seem to tap LB before he is directly under top pig. How do you decide where to tap?
Since everyone seems to be above 90K, I thought I’d give it a try. Did increase my score some, but not enough to even make it into top 50.

@MVNLA2, Let me tell you a story… Last night when the challenge started I began launching the bird every which way I could think of but the scores would fluctuate between 83 and 88k.

Then I decided to launch him in a nice even orbit that allows him to approach the first pig on the right and before hitting the pig tap on the light sitting on top of the pig on the little moon. Wow! What a surprise when the dust settled and the score counter read 91620 points, not a prize winner, but enough to make me try for more.

That was at about 11 PM last night, I have since flung the bird the same way more than 500 times and the highest I’ve gotten is 89k…This is proof positive that in Angry Birds and only in Angry Birds can you do the same exact shot 500 times and have 500 different results.

I’d suggest that if you want a high score, make believe you’re at a casino sitting in front of a slot machine and just keep flinging ’til something gives. Ciao and good luck.

Thanks @mvnla2! The only real tip I could give is to encourage a lot of OCD dedication to the game. LOL. I got into a battle rhythm by flinging, tapping and restarting over and over and over. The EverReady Bird (not rabbit). I was on Hulu doing catch-up with some favorite TV shows and multi-tasking the night away with my iPhone and the challenge. I only jumped a few points on the previous Challenge. I started playing this level right at the start of the Challenge last night and got the 92k+ just under two hours later. Amazing!

I kept the bird at full power and sent him around the planet about the same distance as in the AB Nest Video so that he soared over the top of the right hanging pig – then I tapped the bubble light on top of the topmost pig…You are the pixel guy – I can’t give a good number of those to help you out more….sorry. I did that over and over until it finally decided to cooperate and give me over 2k more points. That is it. Nothing special other than a lot of the L Factor.

Believe me, I tried all sorts of other angles to get more points, including sending LB up and outside of the gravity field and then tapping back down…okay so that did not work at all. I even tried to hit the boulders in case one of them might do some damage below – didn’t work either. I tried the under the right pig strat and that was a bust too. So what I describe above all this is what got me a new puppy this time. Happy Flinging!

@mvnla2 – Yes, I did get this scores fully zoomed IN. I normally zoom out so I can see everything, but this one seemed to need the full size view to enable more precise aim for the big tap. I’m not a young lass anymore and eyesight is not what it used to be – it was easier for me to see the detail I needed to tap the top bubble light when I was zoomed in. Probably can be zoomed out when using the larger devices like the PC or an iPad, but on the smaller handheld such s smartphone or iPod, better to zoom in.
