Angry Birds Star Wars Death Star Level 2-21 Walkthrough

The first shot as video and second shot shoot the TNT

By Oxbone

Exactly. The key is to shoot Han to the left and fire blaster to the right as in video, otherwise aim is off. If pigs are left, shoot Han into TNT and fire blaster at any remaining debris on the for points. Two birds seem to average about 97,000. One bird got me 103110 first time.

Whinge factor paid off.

I found the best result for me at least, was to shoot to the same side Han is flying, as opposed to the side he is flying away from as in the video. Might just be me though.

For me the direction of the shot was all important. The further the target is from Han the less the angle of error. That way all the shots remain in play, pretty much horizontal.

how do you get the tnt to detonate like in the video? I’ve been trying for days, and it’s not working…

Rank: Master Slinger with 5940 points
By 78RPM (@78rpm)Score: 95,800

@Oobgular – that’s tough. I haven’t managed it either after hundreds of tries as in the video. I noticed in the video a laser blast sneaks in under the collapsing tower to take out the tnt. When I do it the tower collapses on top of the blast.
You might try @CmdrBond approach. That does take out the tnt. I can’t figure out how to get the right side piggie that way though.
Good Luck!

I too am having the same problem. The TNT will not explode. I played the video in slow motion. It appears the vibration of the second tower from the left, when it drops down, causes the TNT to explode.

I’ll try @CmdrBond‘s approach

This one is a great advertisment for using a stylus. Since my fingertip covers up the whole base and the block above it, having any precision to make the shot horizontal is pretty much pure luck.

My method: shoot Han to the left, in the moment where he hit the square stone, aim at the wood behind.
This should make the shots bounce left and right and after a few (or 100) tries, makes everything fall.

Took a few hundred flings to finally get this with 1 bird by following the walkthrough. Had to study it very carefully as positioning & timing are crucial. Despite being a bit frustrating it’s fun to watch the blaster shots ricocheting all over the place when you miss.

I could not get it done with one bird in pc, I have got around 91,000 with two birds. I shoot han to right and lasers to left, the pig in the rightmost tower always survives

ONE BIRD SOLUTION TIP(s): As video shows with Han but pay no too much attention to the left, even to the TNT. What matters its the angle of the bouncing lasers… Its mandatory (for high scores) ALL the following:
– Shoot LIGHTLY DOWN after lauch Han; (do as the video)
– The lasers MUST BOUNCE 3 TIMES each column (left-right)in the same panel;
(for high score over 100K the right column must fall too)
I’ve achieve more that 104K without hit the TNT, a falling crate blow it.
Not a easy way but when it work, BIG SCORE.
ANOTHER TIP: I’ve found more easy targeting/shooting making Han to shot pointing at the wooden box than the right column. This way the angle its more easy to calculate. “May the birds be with you…”

Thank you @tienshenlong ;-) The very best tip that made the difference for me was “Shoot LIGHTLY DOWN” For some reason, I read your post several times and was stuck just under 98K but when I re-read it and focused on the launch “LIGHTLY DOWN” towards the left box/tnt and sent lasers straight ahead at right wooden block…viola…102K even ;-D

Let me just add that it seemed to make the difference in that the laser shots were more controlled, so that they all went at the same level as you mentioned (same panel), back and forth three times in a row at pretty much same level and took out that right wooden block while doing what needed to be done on the left too! Thanks again ;-)…I hope my added tips help someone else…Pay it forward ;-)))

An approach to get high score.
Shoot Han rightwards, then trigger laser leftwards. That should blow the TNT.
Get all pig will be nice, but sometimes piggies in right tower smiles at you.
Shoot Han at the big wooden square that’s now very weak, then trigger the laser upwards so the tower will fall in high speed, making most of the metal blocks of the tower destroyed.
93k. Might be higher if it’s 1-bird.

By Alex


This one took me a lot of time to repeat on my Android phone.

My tips :-

* Aim Han to the left.
* Pull finger to the right – as far right as it can go on the screen, pretty much horizontal across.
* Release Han
* Tap the finger to fire *as far right as you can* this gives you a reliable straight shot – better than aiming at the block you want to destroy.

Now, even with this, you’re often left with one of the towers still standing.

If you’re really lucky, the “shock” of a tower collapsing will set off the TNT.

However, for me – a laser beam had to kill the pig in the bottom left, which then took down the left-hand tower. So the beam had to arrive at a not-quite straight angle and to the bottom of the collapsing block to squeeze through before the tower just in front of it collapsed. Tricky!

It seems like the Facebook version of this stage has a very small “dead” space between the blocks, and occasionally the shots will ignore the blocks and pass through this dead space. Really not repeatable intentionally, just odd seeing shots sometimes pass through the space between and hit the TNT.

By rospondek

This is impossible on FB…
Whole day and I can see no way to 3-star this.

By rospondek

And by the power of GraySkull I’ve made it.
You have to destroy both towers on the right and the lower one on the left. Gravity will collapse the first tower straight into TNT. 96k and I hope I won’t see this level again :D
Idea is like on the above video but You have to had a lot of luck.

Now I’m watching above video…
I’ve destroyed almost everything, besides 2 blocks on the right and 2 on the left and got only 96k.
The same thing is on the lvl23. Getting points near the PC version is impossible.

Everytime when the towers on the other side fall, the other side doesn’t. I think I’m going pretty much crazy with this level.

@crazy-rider I’m not sure what you are saying here. Your video is just like the walkthrough video. I don’t really think it is any harder on a PC to do it that way. What is harder is harder on a PC is shooting Han in the same direction he is going so the shot(s) get there before Han does. Doing it that way does seem to make it a little easier to get the one birder, but I can’t be sure because it is difficult (but not impossible: I have done it) and pretty frustrating. If I may give you a little tip…….instead of putting the cursor (hand on a PC) on the near right column, move over to the far right column. It makes things a little easier.

By Crazy Rider (@crazy-rider)Score: 102,620

@stocktoad, it looks like lots of people have difficulties getting the 1-birder on PC because it’s hard to move the pointer fast enough and with accuracy. For myself, it was much easier to do on a tactile phone, and it’s just an encouragement for those who have trouble with a mouse, to show it can be done on PC.

I have used @yuriyigolkin ‘s vid as a starting point. This is not a new strat but I will put in text what used for aiming. On the cubes there are small squares on the lower left of each one.
Aiming Han to the left put the targeting line just touching this square on the second cube from the bottom of the second column from the left. Actually target the top of the square of the second cube of the third column from the left.
Additionally in the background on the wall there are intersecting lines. If you look carefully there is a horizontal line pointing right at this spot to target on said third column. Obviously lots of folks have mastered this level but hopefully this helps some folks.
