Angry Birds Star Wars Bonus Level #8 (S-8) Walkthrough

Angry Birds Star Wars Bonus Level #8 (S-8) is unlocked by accumulating a total of 480 stars. Once you have accomplished this task, you will be prompted to play the level right then and there, or, you can access it via the “Bonus Episode”. To 3-star S-8, aim R2-D2 just within either the northernmost or southernmost gravitational field. He should loop around and blast the TNT just east of center. Now use C-3PO to blast the remaining TNTs.

Go back to the Complete Star Wars Golden Droids & Bonus Level Guide. If you have a different strategy feel free to leave a comment below; however, don't just post your score via the comments, as that's what the leaderboards are for.

more or less the same outcome here. That black TNT is a right pig to set off :(

Yippee – my first Top Score! I aimed R2D2 to the north, slightly touching the leftmost bigger gravitational field so that he lands in the left section on the first TNT box. Something flew over to the right side and blew up the TNT box there as well.

Excellent strat @polka. Sorry I bumped you from the Top Score. One thing to add is that there is no need to set off R2D2, just land on the TNT.

I came back to Star Wars after several years to see how much I could improve my scores. When I got to the Bonus levels, I realized I had a chance to earn a Sharpshooter badge. I got top 20 scores in the other 22 levels almost 2 months ago. This level was nearly indomitable. After a few hundred attempts at the video method, I could not get above 93k. I switched to this northern method and proceeded through thousands of attempts spread over an hour or two a day during the entire length of California’s post Thanksgiving stay-at-home order. With this method, I aimed to hit the top brown tnt at or near the point, along the SW edge above the small blue block. I activated R2 at about the point in his trajectory when he was midway between the two left pig troopers – so well before he hit the tnt. My score crept into the 93ks, then crept through the 94ks. Typically it took about five attempts to get both tnts to explode and send debris over to the right hand tnt. Of those shots, about one in seven detonated that tnt for a one-birder. Most scores were around 90-91k. Then, finally, today I got into the top 20 with a score of 95,850. I guess it took Gov. Newsom lifting California’s stay-at-home order to finally crack this level.

Correction: the number of attempts it took to get both tnts to explode and send debris over to the right hand tnt was about fifteen (not five). And it was about one in five (not seven) of those shots that detonated that tnt for a one-binder. Thus about one in 75 attempts yielded a one-bird score. I had a lot of time to study this …

Got a 1-Birder here too, same first shot as the video. At least this one was nice n’ easy and took only 5 attempts.

I have 522 stars but bonus level 8 is still locked. What should I do?

There are two pages in the golden bonus episode, one for golden droids ( D-levels), the other for bonus levels (S-levels).
Are you looking at the correct one?

By DryElbow

Like RedFang94, I also have 522 stars but S-8 is still locked. It shows 522/480 so it should be open, but shows locked and cannot be played. Anyone find a solution?

Have you tried restarting your device? Re-defeating level S-7?

By DryElbow

I have PC version, and have restarted my computer. I have also re-beat each of the S-levels, including S-7, but no luck. I have opened a ticket with Rovio and will post results here if they can help me.

@DryElbow: That’s weird. I’m also on PC, and had no problems with S-8. Please let us know how you fared.

By DryElbow

The ticket I put in with Rovio on 11 February still has this staus: “This request is awaiting assignment to a support agent”… But if I hear from them someday, I’ll be sure to post results here.

I have same situation: 522 stars and S-8 is still locked. I’ve rebooted, replayed S-7 and ended with a higher score, and finally copied everything to a different machine (including lua files so I didn’t have to play the whole game over again), with no change. S-8 is locked on both machines, so I await with interest the results of your inquiry.

By DryElbow

Rovio support contacted me on 21 March to ask what OS, game version, etc. I’ll post more when they get back to me.

By Spineripper

I’m in the same boat with 570 stars. Any hope?

Rovio has been informed of the issue.

By DryElbow

Rovio support contacted me 4 April with the following: We have now received some feedback on this issue and we are currently investigating it. We apologize for not being able to give you an answer or instructions right away, this is something that needs deeper investigation.
