Angry Birds Star Wars Death Star Level 2-18 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Death Star level 2-18 is to launch Han over the barricades so that he lands on the patch of glass. Just as he hits, fire the lasers up at the orb hanging from the ceiling which will drop the orb and release the walls of the crusher (aka, the trash compactor).

I fired Han’s blaster down onto the metal slab that the left pig sits on so that it reflected up through the right pig and up to the steel wheel.

Thanks! This worked really well for me after a couple of tries. Timing the shot takes some practice.

Neat-o strategy! But still have some couple of tries since the bottom left pig doesn’t want to be compacted into a trash cube.

Rovio made this episode to wreck players’ nerves, difficult to score and triple difficult to get the Golden Eggdroid, I managed to 3 star it, but the egg, that’s something else entirely, Hans’ shots get to within millimeters of the Eggdoor, but no dice.

I fired the hans bird at the block between the two pigs on the platform, took a few tries but I got it with a score of 66350.

OK – I took one shot at this one and got a score of 68260. Saw it was 3 stars and came here to see what I needed to get close to average. You know what, I’m gonna take my middle of the road score and move on. I kind of consider the big L is telling me something.
My shot is a little different from the vid and I can’t say how repeatable it is. I shot up pretty high and aimed the laser blasts at the top of the rope holding up the disc. The laser blasts reflected back to the two pigs on the platform the disc fell and we had squished piggies.

By grubsfchef

I went high with my shot too. It ricocheted back to get the 2nd pig. The best thing was that the trash compactor crushed everything vertical to give me a score of 70280.

By TruckDriver (@truckdriver)Score: 66,870

That’s kind of the key to this level – getting the trash compactor to completely destroy the debris, not just pop the pigs. Try as I might, it doesn’t happen all of the time. Furrther, I’m quite convinced that there is a 1-bird high score in there somewhere, I just haven’t made the right shot yet…

By Lex

I aimed the shooter bird on a trajectory to hit the 2 pigs and shot at the metal plate in the ground before the first pig. The ricochet went through the second pig and hit the disc rope.

3 stars with 1 bird and 70,560

Have no idea how to get the golden droid though!

High trajectory with Han aiming lasers on the way down just to the left of the first pig. First laser takes top of post next to first pig, the next two hit above ball chain with ball taking pig on the way down. Second pig up top does a slow roll and dies. 1 bird, consistent scores above 70K.

I went with the high trajectory and aimed the laser for the top of the square block between the two pigs. It’s really hard to get it just right. Lasers ricocheted to the wall to cut the rope, and down to do some damage to the top door. Watching the crushing was slow and painful. It took me a while to even realize it was top score.

Thank you @beggertoo for strat and @abcrazy for your added details. Congrats on Top Score too ;-D I was stuck just slightly over average and read your tip to aim at the square block and when I tapped it slightly on the left side of the square, it work best. I should probably keep trying to get over 70K but I think I’ll move on and finally finish this update…I got sidetracked for sure ;-)

Very interesting! It will gove more points by clearing left top side.

I broke 70K barrier by shooting over the disc but I’m no able to describe how both left side pigs was killed. More points was set by ricochets and almost total smash at compactor – near the film.

By Ike

Score: 70,120. Shoot the first bird so that it will land near the first of two pigs, just before impact fire lasers. You can get a ricochet off the cement that will hit near the round globe and drop it, everything gets destroyed. I tried using millennium falcons to get the gold orb. I could take out the cement walls around it, but not get the orb. Once I ran out of millennium falcons, if I tried to use one it took me to another page to purchase more, and it seems like larger more powerful millennium falcons. Perhaps one of these big ones could get the gold orb…..

This is very similar to the method that I used. I waited a little longer to fire Hans so that I shot the first pig and pushed the debris into the second. Doing it my way makes the shot much harder though.

By Donkey-er (@donkey-er)Score: 73,920

wow, wasn’t expecting this but got 73,920, pretty much what happened in the video but I shot too late, lazer still got the ball down but reflected on the beam of the crusher and for some reason it started pushing and almost all debris got crushed with the ball dropping on it.

I haven’t posted this highscore jet simply because I’m playing on my PSvita, because me previous high score was around 67K on my tablet, I’m a bit confused whether this is a valid score? if somebody could let me know that would be awesome:)

@Donkey-er It doesn’t seem to far out-of-bounds. It’s beating the existing top score by <1k and a lot seemed to have “gone right” in order to get that score.

My question to you would be, does PSVita give any significant differences in gameplay — such as noticeably higher or lower damage points and such — in your opinion?

Rank: Shooter with 780 points
By Donkey-er (@donkey-er)Score: 73,920

@AMslimfordy nope, everything is the same point-wise. Only real difference is in the controls, you can use it like normal, but they also put in options to use the buttons or the rear touchpad. Other than that they messed around with the menu’s a bit, but the scores for breaking certain things are still the same as when I played it on my tablet.

And yeah indeed, there is no way I can repeat this shot:P

Is there anyone who knows how to get golden droid on death star level 18? Been trying for months!!! Every way I can possibly try or even think of trying doesn’t work!!!!! Surely it wouldn’t be there if it was impossible to get it. I just can’t figure a way to do it. I’ve tried destroying the compacter. Which seems to be impossible also? I’ve tried shooting bird left & firing towards golden droid, but wall always takes impact of guns. How is it done? Thanks.

follow the first part of the posted walk through and aim hans so he will land on the the patch of steel. the instant he gets below the second barricade fire his blaster at its base or mid section and the lasers will bounce off of it, knock down the hanging ball wich will break the trash compactor, and then the lasers will bounce back and kill the remaining piggies on the ledge

When I tried this strategy it helped a lot. I spent hours trying to get this golden droid.

I used a little different aproach.
1st bird on the leftest pile of rocks and shoot on the hanging wheel.
2nd under the right pile of rocks and smash as late as possible.

Not easy – took a lot of time to get the highest point – but several tries over 70k with this method…

“Are you chasing the dog again?”
“Yes. It’s Stars Wars, looks nearly impossible”
“Why are you playing then?”
“You never know, someone might come up with a new strategy”

Hi @jtwade. I’ve also tried vicketok’s strat but can’t get any kind of decent score with it. My best results have been by pulling Hans really close to the sling pole until just a tiny sliver of light appears between his base and the pole. Then just after he reaches the top of his high arc, tap slightly to the right of center of the metal beam underneath the first pig. Had several 72-73K scores but so far unable to get the puppy score.
Congrats to @vicketok on top score :))
