After longer fight I raised +6K in step by step mode. Just for statistic – pass 3* rare 3B is possible too. @idefix1976 video is helpfull but apllication need some time to adjust precision.

If Anakin’s body hit blocks and fall down at left side – with or without flat wood board crash under the rock – pass of 50-51.8 (51K+ rare) with first bird is repetable buy need some skills. Max score, part I, are laying there.

If Anakin’s body go over the rock and gently touch chain without cut it – will fasten a bit chain & engine combo down – pass 50K is also possible.

Part II starts with calculating arc and tap moment. After longer time spend here I can repeat 97K, bitting 98K is rare (mayby twice 4 me). For higher 2B core I must change a bit 2nd shoot accurancy.

This worked on the second try for me. I couldn’t get a 3* with the first video.

I had really bad luck using video method. Helicopter went awry every time. I launch the pod racer over the helicopter and then aim at the right tower. Anakin catches the helicopter destroying the bottom structure and then continues into the right tower nearly destroying that as well. Jar Jar same trajectory grabbing the TNT with his tongue and fling it into the remains of the tower. That’s all she wrote.

I used your strategy and was able to clear it with one bird. I was initially dismayed when the pod racer broke the helicopter chain, however the helicopter flew into the right tower, then turned around and finished off the left.

Score of 108,200. I will never be able to repeat it again.

I had trouble getting above one star for a very long time with this level. Finally broke down and read the site strategy. On my second try, I came from slightly underneath to hit the TNT. The TNT gently bounced over to the chain area, exploded and set the helicopter free. I was getting ready to reset the level when the helicopter flew around the rock, plowed through the lower structure and then exploded on impact with the left support of the right structure taking it all out. As mcc8206, I doubt I will ever be able to repeat it, nor do I have any intent of trying. Score: 106750.

I did exactly the same. Breaking the chain to release the helicopter followed by huge luck as it bounced off the right structure and into the lower structure destroying nearly everything on the way.

@hochstrd thanks for the strategy!!!! You did it on your second try. Unbelievably, I read your strat and on my first try got top score. I never had that happen before.

Thanks for this tip @hochstrd. After a lot of frustrating tries today (yes, I was so skeptical after all the failed attempts), I finally got it to work for me and the chopper took out all but one piggie on the bottom and rotated towards the right tower and destroyed most of it! I had to use another bird to get that left pig and did a swap for Chewie to smash the last bit. I raised my score from 94k to 99k then another few resets and got 102k.

I was simply trying to follow the walkthrough strategy to get above average, and had not read any further comments, when this happened to me too. No swap or Last Chance, as I try to do without. Just started playing SW2 a few weeks ago btw. And I stole the top score! Sorry about that @stocktoad

No luck with the helicopter destroying much when chain was broken. Mostly it just flew off the screen. I ended up using the strat by @idefix1976. Thanks for including a video idefix1976!

Different strategy with difficult one-birder possible; two-birder is very repeatable.

Send Anakin upwards/backwards towards 11 o’clock or so. When he stops climbing, target a point just above helicopter blades.

Anakin whips into TNT, not detonating it, but stripping away wood and exposing it. Jet crashes into helicopter, sending it downward to destroy things. If fates are smiling, Anakin will continue on into right tower and cause pig-popping collapse. If not, send Jar Jar up high, snag exposed TNT with tongue and fling into right tower.

@grimbley – Thank you for posting this strat. I was aiming just over the left structure/pig and tapping just slightly above the propeller with good results. The tnt stays intact and Anakin continues on to land through both horizontal wooden planks of the right structure which can collapse it to get all the right piggies. Meanwhile, the top left pig got disturbed from the wind while the copter went down like a pendulum taking out all the bottom piggies.

However, when Anakin doesn’t collapse the right structure and a pig or two survives, I would then grab for the tnt with JJ but the wooden plank on top of the tnt is still there so it makes it a bit harder to get the tnt all the way out and to the right at the correct angle.

Your way of sending him up and back a bit (11 o’clock) and tapping above the propeller works much better and 98% of the time leads to a one birdie! It was very repeatable but the good thing is that even if Anakin doesn’t get all the right pigs, with your angle, the tnt is fully exposed and the wood plank is gone so if I had to use a second bird to grab the tnt it was much easier ;)

I found your strategy very repeatable and easy to get a one birdie ;D I did grab for the tnt anyway to see if it was worth using the second bird…while scores were good in the 96K – 97K range…ultimately the one birdie with no tnt scores the highest. I’m at 100490 this way ;-)
Thanks again as I had the right idea but your trajectory is much better ;-)

@grimbley Thanks for posting your strategy for this level. After quite a few attempts I have finally broken the 100k barrier using it. People like you who take the time to post such a descriptive strategy are what makes AngryBirdsNest such a great place!!!

Here’s a different 1–bird swap strategy that sometimes works and resulted in my current personal best score of 102,000 with a more remaining to be destroyed suggesting it should be good for more points than that with a bit of luck of course. Use character swap of Padme Amidala aiming her at the connection of the suspend chain and vertical wood below the TNT. As she approaches that impact point direct her push beams upward at the TNT so as to launch it upward and towards the right.

There are several successful 1-bird results that can occur including having the TNT fly completely over the helicopter and landing on the far right structure before exploding or falling between the two structures bringing down the right structure and a portion of the left structure with the explosion. In this first scenario when the TNT sails over the helicopter, wood debris must hit and activate the helicopter sending it clockwise down and into what remains of the left structure destroying the two leftmost pigs.

The more reliable outcome is that the TNT lands on top of the helicopter activating its clockwise rotation with the TNT then falling into and destroying the right structure as the helicopter continues into the left structure to destroy all of those pigs.

At the very least it’s a fun strategy to play ~ “Best of Luck” to all who give it a few flings……

BTW ~ Congratulations to my most esteemed ABN friend @Stocktoad on your high score for this level that is still holding up well from your play back on 2/9/14 ~ Good Job !!!

Thanks @uncle-b It will be interesting to see if my score holds up to the Daily Challenge pressure.

Thanks @uncle-b, so far I’ve managed to improve about 9k on iPad to 103950 with your strategy by having the TNT land on top of the helicopter & the TNT eventually falling onto the right side before it explodes, all as the helicopter continues down to eat thru the bottom structure.

I know there’s some controversy with the Last Chance(s), but just having X amount of extra Characters does not automatically equate to a #1 or even Top 10 score, at least not for me in this level & I consider myself an OK or decent shot. There’s only a short time to select a bird, aim & fling which means quick reflexes & an excellent knowledge of bird characteristics, including how far it will “fly” is crucial to succeeding when using Last Chances. Simply having an extra 10 or 20 Bird Telepods doesn’t mean a member will obtain a higher score than if using the ABN video or following an alternate strategy in the Comments.

@justpast40 I was curious to know if anyone would beat my high score with the “Last Chance” strategy, and since I hadn’t tried it yet I gave it a shot. I got down to just a couple of pieces of debris on the right side of the far rock. Everything on the left was destroyed including the big gear/spur thing. (the spur took 3 shots from Han Solo to bring down) I ended up with just over 100K so unless there is something I don’t understand about the last chance thing, it won’t work to get real high score on this one.

By justpast40 (@justpast40)Score: 103,950

@stocktoad, have no fear, or at least I don’t think you need to worry. I believe my best of Last Chances was a tad under 100k, so we’re in the same a ballpark as far as this goes.

I’ve tried the strategy you said you used, but I’m just missing something. I’m not understating:

1. Where to aim
2. When to tap
3. Is it full sling strength

Rank: Sling God with 21330 points
By Stocktoad (@stocktoad)Score: 117,690

@justpast40 You probably aren’t missing anything. It’s just a really lucky once in a thousand shot. Full strength. Start out aiming a little below horizontal… with the tracer line going through the chain or cement square. Tap on or just below the TNT so that the TNT doesn’t go off, but bounces to the right. It’s easy to get the TNT to move and not go off, but a little more difficult to get it to move far enough to fall and go off by the helicopter. That part I have accomplished several times, but having the helicopter set free and destroy the bottom part and still knock down the right side requires an extreme amount of luck.

Rank: Sling God with 26000 points
By Uncle B (@uncle-b)Score: 105,620

Yes, the TNT needs to land on the right-hand side of the helicopter blades to “encourage” it to start the clockwise rotation down and to the right.

As of this writing I have been able to increase my score up to 105,620 using this method.
