Angry Birds Star Wars Golden Droid #4 (D-4) Walkthrough

Golden Droid #4 (aka, Golden Egg) is located on Level 2-18 of Angry Birds Star Wars Death Star. The Golden Droid is below the main structure, but a priori there is no way to reach it. Alas, it is indeed possible, but incredibly difficult. Very softly shoot Han off the left side of the platform. Approximately 1.5 or 2 seconds after he descends past the bottom of the viewable area of the screen, tap just under the Droid to shoot the laser blaster into the tiny enclosure. Still having trouble? Our video can show you. Once you hit the droid, you’ll immediately be transported via a hyperdrive to the level. Anyhow, if you need help, the video below shows the location of the Golden Droid on level 2-18 and how to pass Droid level #4 (D-4) with 3 stars.

If you shoot to the right of the enclosure it seems more reliable. I think there is an underground tunnel of metal which bounces the lazer fire along.

After a 10 or 12 tries ; I did it ; for me was better to point the shot slightly to the right and belong the droid . Cause when I pointed exactly on the droid the shots were just belong the droid. That make move the idea to shot just pointing belong and right side to the droid.

I was having difficulty with this one as well. What ended up turning the trick for me was when Han slipped down below the level of the catwalk in the foreground, I tapped the CATWALK under the Golden Droid to fire the blaster, and lo and behold, it worked after my second attempt.

That was the trick, tapping the capwalk below the Droid. Worked on my second try and the only difference between this success and the gazillion failures was I was tapping on the Droid before. Thanks TruckDriver

I’m glad it worked for you. It’s proof that it’s not just my device.

By Angry Player

You can not shoot right of the closure, at least not on my android device you can’t. You have to shoot left, but it needs to be aimed as far right as possible of the platform. Wait about a second and then tap right under the golden droid, on what everyone is calling the catwalk. It took me 3 attempts once I got the right technique down and stop trying to figure out where “right was”

You nailed it, @truckdriver!! I went through this one a long time ago but couldn’t remember how I’d done it, only that it was frustrating! But I got it on the third try using your method! Thank you fine sir!

By izdale

There is definitely an underground tunnel as you said, you can see and hear the lasers bouncing. The reason I think the right side works better is because there is most likely a triangle piece there. Aiming at the right side would bounce the lasers in the middle of the triangle so it goes up the center to the droid. If you aim right under the droid, that would be the bottom of the triangle and so the shots go up the side and miss the droid. So don’t aim right under the droid, go a little to the right.

It took me only two tries to get the droid; I put the crosshairs at the bottom of the droid compartment, sitting on top of the walkway. :)

When you zoom out completely, you see the tunnel entirely because you can see the ricocheting lasers also at the bottom of the screen beside the tunnel entry. To shoot the droid, you need to aim the tunnel entry exactly at the very bottom of the screen but it’s easier to reach it by aiming a little higher and more to the right. Seeing the lasers ricocheting is a good help to adjust the shoot too.

By zlyeptitsy

Easy, once given the clue to let the Han bird actually drop off the screen. Rather than doing a “soft shot,” it’s much easier to send Han in a very high parabola to the left, and then shoot the laser gun to the right of the actual Droid enclosure, as noted by @twiki, just after Han drops off the screen. Took me only a few tries.

Yeah, this is the way to go.

The level itself ranks among my favorites in the Rube Goldberg category in any AB game. Shooting the pigs through the walls is a neat trick, and watching the pigs with the lasers ratchet down towards doom is highly amusing.

@brave1966 — Thanks! I’m not really tracking self-annihilation, pigs killing each other triggered by a bird shot, but self-destruction, where something happens without any birds being fired. I’d love to find a level where the pigs kill each other without a shot being fired, but haven’t seen it yet. I also have a category called “unstable” but that is pretty rare. Best to read the examples to understand the difference.
Keep looking, and let me know if you find something else.

I made 94.100. @Frontman (hello :), @crysjoe, @magsy79 achieved this level before me. 93.490 it’s good score and repetable. I made 94.050 once but my first shoot was 28.500. Mayby maximum is 94.500-94.550?

Sometimes 4 pigs and 4 forks it’s not anought to score 29.000 at first shoot. What makes a difference? Flat metal board, 2 x stones with hole, concrete square – crash them all same time and you will be delighted. MANY attempts is needed and / or extremly luck.

@mvnla2 Q: “How did you get 28K on first shot?”. MY MISTAKE (typo), sorry. It was 21.500 with all pigs cleared and all forks (propably). Some times under 21.900 was scored by me.

One more thing which make a difference at final score. One of wooden board on which sits shooting pig. It could be destroyed at 100% or partialy.

Oh my goodness! I just got high score (94710)! And there was still a couple of things not destroyed. OK, some hints:
I have no clue how you can get more than 21900 on the first shot. To get that you need to destroy the first 4 pigs and all 4 forks. Activate C3-PO early enough that a couple of pieces of his debris go to the left of pigs — they will take out left-most forks. Not really sure what happened differently on second shot.

@Bird-Tester — Probably less than 100. I wasn’t paying that much attention to details of second shot. I was still below average, and second shot seemed to be going much as usual. Then all of a sudden it was not just above average, but high score. I am consistently able to get all the forks, but lower-left round stone does not blow, and not sure I ever got the stone planks, but maybe this one time everything worked, but I am sure there was still some stuff left. How did you get 28K on first shot?

@mvnla2 I know it’s been forever and a day since you played these but I’m certain that you also got the wooden planks holding the pigs with the guns as I was able to hit one and it upped my score, of course that time there were still things left over and that disk on the right has Never blown out of the cave so not sure if it has for anyone else either.

Well I can now say with total confidence this is a Boooring level, getting 21900 on first shots a given if you get all the forks, second shot, matters not at all when you activate, your going to get (if done right) 34000 after the TNT blows, then it jumps to 39130 as the top pigs start working their way down and the little red light crashes, it’s after all that happens that your score is truly determined as the laser blasts start hitting things and you get enough ricocheting to annihilate enough things to bump your score up before the lasers kill the two pigs attached to them. Pure Luck, typical SW style!!! My only hope is that these bonus D levels get better becaus so far they’ve been not much fun IMO. I liked the bonus S levels much more.

@amslimfordy I have an incredibly tiny screen on my phone (3.2″). It is an android os and it is virtually impossible to get the droid on 2-18. Any pointers, tips or secrets to getting it in my circumstance? I get it in the tunnel sometimes, but it never reaches it. Is there any way to get it with the Millenium Falcon? Tried the Falcon a few times but no luck so far.

@amslimfordy I know it is hard from just my description, but am I probably getting it in the tunnel. If I am, I put the crosshairs just right of the droid, but it doesn’t appear to go far enough 99% of the time. Normally, I can get in a groove on a level and then just break through score wise. However, I don’t know what else I can do to improve my shot on this. If you have any additional advice, I am very desperate and it is the only thing between me and 3-starring ABSW in totality. Thanks for listening either way.

I would say one more thing. I was playing it on the blind shoot (intuitive). VERY fast I saw red shoots. I play with no sound at all (to loud for me). Imagine tunel like this under the main scene. Little longer, chimney higher.

My shots to get the Droid were way too far to the left on my Android phone. In part, this was user error as I was not using a “soft” shot or lob. Once I started the soft shot I was getting closer, but still a no-go…. I was playing about 1/2 way zoomed out so I could see the Droid. The ZOOM was my problem. I zoomed all the way in. I could not see the Droid nor any part of the tunnel. I shot a soft lob & as Han fell down the Droid came into view so I tapped where indicated. As everything on the screen moved upwards I could no longer see the Droid, but BINGO, it popped up & I’d gotten it. I believe it was the 1st or 2nd attempt fully zoomed in, so if you’re having trouble, maybe this will help some of my fellow swine hating, Angry Birds lovin nesters.
