Angry Birds Star Wars Hoth Level 3-20 Walkthrough

Star Destroyer dead ahead! Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Hoth level 3-20 is to send Han Solo towards the blue planetoid, firing his blaster parallel to the top of the Star Destroyer to take out the three helmet pigs. Now send Obi-Wan immediately below the Star Destroyer, force pushing the front half up, taking out the smaller ship. Fling the second Obi-Wan beneath the blue planetiod and force push the heck out of the back part of Star Destroyer, breaking it into pieces. Use Chewie to pick up any stragglers and to rack up some points.

First off, I got three stars at 138k.

Now, for a much better score:

Shot 1: Shoot down as many pigs as you can above the destroyer, your goal is to clear a path for Obi-Wan.

Shot 2: Shoot Obi-Wan to the back of the destroyer, pushing all the stuff into the TNT.

If this didn’t clear everything, use the next shots to clean up. I needed to use the second Obi-Wan to get rid of the two pigs in the top left.

That’s the strategy I came up with as well. I sent the second Obi-Wan to the lower tie-fighter and directed upward at impact. Score varies wildly but three stars is almost guaranteed. Usually, the TNT will push the top blaster somewhere to the top of the screen, and the second Obi-Wan will push the front blaster top the top left, and if lucky they will both be directed to the middle and cause a lot of extra destruction.

I agree with @mvnla2, boy was this a hard one, especially to get above average with the others scoring well over 200k.

It’s many, many months after the initial release & it seems the power of the shots from Han Solo has increased. I almost gave up on the 166k I needed for an above average, but I lucked out & fortunately the level didn’t close too soon.

Just managed to set the top score of 201,590 points, eclipsing @ernor63‘s score by more than 5,100 points.

In the spirit of the upcoming Christmas holiday, here’s how I did it:

First, thanks to @cal010 for the tactic of “clearing the way”. That ultimately led me to the refinement resulting in the high score. Like Cal’s method, this too is low-probability, high-reward, but I believe it’s a higher probability.

SD: Star Destroyer
USS: Upper small ship
LSS: Lower small ship

A brief digression: using Cal’s method, my score rose to the mid-160’s and then 171k, where I hit a plateau. Along the way, though, it became obvious that high scores resulted when Obiwan’s force caused the top cannon to rotate at the SD itself and destroy it. But this tactic had several problems. I’ll address them later, because first I want to give my refinement.

1) This part is Cal’s tactic. Aim Han at the leftmost TIE fighter. Avoid the cannon fire by releasing Han when the blaster fire crosses the path of the aiming dots. As Han passes above the bow of the SD fire his blasters horizontally to the right at the first triangle of the SD’s superstructure. The blaster fire will pop the left two helmet pigs and then ricochet to take out the TIE fighter below the blue planetoid (at 5 o’clock). The third helmet pig will probably also bite the dust. Meanwhile Han collides with the TIE fighter and destroys it. The USS takes some damage.

2) Here’s the refinement: Aim Obiwan in the general direction of the rightmost helmet pig in the USS (or where he used to be). Avoid the blaster fire from the cannon. As Obiwan passes above the cannon, force-push downward. You need to get a feel for the right distance: if you’re too far, the cannon doesn’t move enough, and if you’re too close the cannon is destroyed by the force. Once you get it right you hope that the cannon moves down and rotates to point at the SD’s superstructure. Most of the SD’s pieces are concentrated here, and it’s where you’ll get the most damage points. Also, if the cannon moves down far enough, the LSS will be in the line of fire.

That’s it.

In the first 50 tries I got a few scores in the mid-160’s and in the low 170’s. That was very encouraging. On the final try, the cannon moved down and off the screen, rotated itself perfectly, and for a little while moved slowly to the right. The LSS was quickly shredded. The SD superstructure was in the line of fire next and blasted to pieces. Ricochets flying everywhere… pigs squealing. (Oops. In space no one can hear you squeal). One of the ricochets detonated the TNT, which forced more flotsam into the line of fire: more points!

Meanwhile the right pig from the USS survived. I think the blue planetoid protected it from a lot of ricochets. This was crucial since it permitted all of the cannon fire to accumulate points.

OK, this is already very long, but I want to get to the problems with Cal’s first method.

The upper cannon is simultaneously close to the upper planet, close to blue planetoid and close to the main body of the ship. Because of this, most of the time:

1) It ends up sucked into the gravity field of the upper planet, or …

2) It ends up pointing at the blue planetoid, or …

3) It destroys itself with a ricochet, or …

4) The TNT would detonate, the cannon would get hit by debris, again resulting in 1, 2, or 3, or …

5) It would end up uselessly pointing off into space, usually after an all-too-short period of blasting the SD.

This refinement completely eliminates 1 and 4, and greatly reduces the odds of 2 and 3. It has the same bad odds as 4.

Rank: Champion with 3935 points
By greatleo (@greatleo)Score: 201,590

Thanks, @dark-cloud. I can add a few more refinements. My philosophy is, you’re going to be trying this a couple hundred times, so do whatever you can to improve your odds.

Here’s how I try to rotate the cannon:
Just to the right of the cannon is a small rectangular block. On the underside of the SD, below and slightly to the left of that block, is a longer block. Imagine a line between the centers of the two blocks. Aim Obiwan so that he’ll pass a little below the blue planetoid. As he passes the imaginary line, push the force downward along that line. With practice you’ll be able to get a nice rotation to the cannon.

Often the TIE fighter below the cannon gets in the way and spoils a beautiful force push. TIE fighters rotate about a point just above the “head”. The fighter is farthest away from the cannon when it’s at the 4:30 point in its rotation. Time your launch of Obiwan so the cannon is pushed when the fighter is farthest away, and you’ll have a better chance at an enjoyable shot.

Finally, on the very first shot with Han at the TIE fighter, it often happened that a piece of fighter debris would float off to the left and get in the way of the next shot. The debris is always a piece of vertical stabilizer from the fighter. Wait a second or two and time the first shot so the fighter is more or less horizontal. Han will hit the stabilizer and destroy it, and the other stablizer will fly off to the right and out of the way.

Many thanks to greatleo and others.

I will condense my own strategy.

Bird 1. Lowest, nearest dark metorite. Bump it out of the way. Leave structure untouched.

Bird 2. Fly over the nearest cannon and push down about midaway through the pig to move the canon.

To explain – bird one is irrelevant. Bird two is critical.

Thw entire plan here is to get the canon to turn – firing into the main structure at about a 45 degree angle so it destroys as much as possible at an angle that prevents shots rebounding back into the canon. If you are lucky – you will sit back and watch the TNT explode.

Just before hitting the meteor, I also blast the TIE fighter just below the SD. It sometimes gets in the way of the spinning cannon. If you hit it when it’s horizontal (i.e. right-side up or upside down), it’s completely destroyed with minimal disruption of the SD.

Thank you @greatleo for the technique. I was a bit pissed the level didn’t give me 50 more points to reach 200K. I was micro-pixels from a 2-birder; which cost me 10K points because I had to shot a 3rd bird. Perhaps I’ll try again another day.

Here’s my modification to @greatleo ‘s technique.

The key is for the left gun to turn and float to the right with downward movement, in a controlled manner.

Use Hans to destroy the the Tie-fighter beneath the left gun. The Tie-Fighter blocks the gun’s destiny. Ensure the Tie-Fighter is more horizontal than vertical when it is destroyed to prevent its debris from moving the left gun. For my 199K score I did not use Han’s laser, I sent him on a suicide mission.

Aim Obi so the distance between him and the gun, when Obi is directly above the gun, is about equal to his body’s length (+/- a 1/4 body length).

Release Obi as 2nd of the 3 laser beams from the gun is above the sling. Obi’s path is almost directly at the gun so the timing of his release is a small window.

Once Obi has passed the gun’s barrel send his force to the RIGHT. Obi’s force extends at angles. By sending his force right, the angle from his force will place the gun in a CONTROLLED rotation and CONTROLLED float down and to the right. The difficult part is the specific time of to apply Obi’s force. The window for applying the force is about the time it takes Obi to travel half the length of the gun.

The method is difficult. HOWEVER when you see the laser eating the ships, pigs popping, and you release a ricochet is about blow the TNT… the smile on your face will say the effort was worth it.

May the force be strong in you.

@odie, both your and @alo10w have made nice improvements to my suggestion. I just scored 198,480 with two-birds using yours. They both work well. Yours has the advantage that you don’t have to wait for the upper TIE fighter to rotate into a nice position before launcing Obiwan. This makes it a bit easier to line up Obiwan nicely with a star to get a consistent distance to the SD before using the force. At this point its just a matter of time before my high score falls.

With my method it’s too hard to consistently control the spin.

To be honest, I think one of these two should be the official angrybirdsnest walkthrough method for this level.

Thanks for your great description Odie. It’s really hard to get the second shot just right. Most of the time it wouldn’t rotate enough or translate far enough to the right. But when it worked…… Sweet! Both times, I had only the leftmost bubble pig left & had to use a third bird.

@odie I really appreciate you detailing your technique! I am however challenged apparently and cannot seem to figure out where exactly some key points are. When you release Obi you are pointing directly at the barrel or slightly above? I have been using a somewhat bright star just at the tip of the left gun as an aiming point for example.
When you say “Obi has passed the barrel” do you mean the very left tip of the muzzle or the entirety of the whole barrel I.e. over the round portion or in the middle of the barrel?
And lastly I get how to target to the right after you reach said point above but where exactly are you touching to aim the force? The bubble pig? In front of it? Below it? Behind? The ship itself? I cannot seem to find the repeatable point that seems to make it work. Any additional details, screen shots, diagrams or even stick figure drawings would be super appreciated!
I got my score thus far by sending Han underneath the SD and giving it the the ol’ Solo goose in the behind with the blaster.

Warning: for reference only. This is pure fluke.

1st bird (Han): Focused on the lower small ship.
2nd bird (Obi-Wan): Same trajectory as the 1st shot, activated the Force upwards to hit the upper small ship.
3rd bird (Obi-Wan): Straight ahead to the Destroyer, activated the Force just after his body hit the second Oink Fighter to the right. This is crucial, as this is to clear the path for the next shot.
4th bird (Chewie): Slightly higher than the previous shot, and successfully rotated the upper gun to about 7 o’clock. The gun essentially cleared almost everything …
5th bird (Chewie): … except for one Imperial at the lower chamber. So I shot Chewie at the pesky Imperial, and happened to ignite the TNT. (Man, that was HARD to ignite.)

Score: 154k, enough for 3 stars and – out of my expectations – unlocking Path of the Jedi episode!! (I used to think that this is unlocked only after 3-starring every single available level, including the bonuses. :P)

Let’s just hope 3-40 will be a bit less painful than this. *whew*

My 2 bird firing solution:

1- (Same as Branden’s one) Sling Han right below the Star destroyer and when you almost left the screen blow the TNT. (It’s possible to be one-birdie’s with LOTS of attemps!).

(BREAK TIME HERE RECOMMENDED… to let the active lasers, debris and inertia WORK for you and clear the level-screen for you)

2- Sling Obi directly to the semi-opened nose of the star destroyer and when passing the destroyer’s laser, use the force pointing to…
– (IF there is a TIE remaining near and bellow the moon, sorrounded by debris.) = FORCE DIRECTLY TO IT = FULL HORIZONTAL RIGHT
– (IF otherwise) = to the center/right/UP direction, depending on position and spread… SO, choose wisely

The key is for the left gun to turn and float to the right with downward movement, in a controlled manner.

Use Hans to destroy the the Tie-fighter beyond the left gun.
Before Obi has passed the gun send his force down.
I needed many tries and a lot of luck.

I have a 201,820. Obviously it requires some luck with the cannons, but I usually score low in the 160,000’s when I dont get lucky.

I shoot han just slightly above the front cannon and as he passes over it I shoot at the tower just below the second cannon. Han will hit the pigs in the bubbles with his body, and the shots will take out the bubble pig by the tower and ricochet into the tie fighter that hides behind the blue planet. Han will usually (and hopefully) end up crashing into those 3 pesky little antennas at the base of the tower, knocking them away. Aim the first jedi just slightly above hans previous path…..he should fly untouched and hit a little above where those antenna were knocked away into the thick part of the ship, close to where the 2 inside pigs are. Trigger your force blow just below the tnt area. It will blow the tnt and also crush the pig towards the back of the small ship below. If you’re lucky, the angle of the cannon after the blast will do some good extra damage. Send the second jedi towards the bottom ship and in a line that will take out the tie fighter and the next pig on the ship (the third pig on the bottom ship should be gone already from the force of the tnt hit previously). Use the force of this jedi as you pass below the front cannon, sending it up toward the top small ship. The force will send the cannon and some parts into the tie fighter and the two pigs on the top ship. The jedis path will hit that bottom tie fighter and the pig too. It will rarely destroy the cannon because the line you take isnt super close to the cannon. With a little luck here, the cannon will do some more damage to the parts to send your score higher. Everyone needs a little bit of luck with the cannons, but this way has worked best for me.

Many thanks for this. It’s nice to have a stat that brings in thr top cannon.

Ps. As a general note. This is a score of 201k with 3 birds. Scores of 210k+ are achievable with two.

Thanks ABN.I´ve got 3-star with 149.610 in Hoth :D(One part of Hoth)


Fire Han in a straight line between the destroyer and the small ship under it. Time it right to miss the Tie. Pass the destroyer and fire at the TNT, the blast will destroy most pigs

Oh My!!!! I thankfully have gotten above average and hope to not have to revisit this level! I didn’t read all the strats…my head was spinning ;-)

I finally managed it using @lazr method of waiting for the Tie-fighter on the bottom left to go far enough down to send Han under the main ship all the way straight across the bottom and tapping the tnt once he went passed it. This ignited tnt and damaged the whole right side as well as caused the top right lazer to get lodged on the very top right giant planet so that it was firing at the top left little ship. It got both pigs there. Wait it out and let the lazer finish ricocheting. The front left main ship remained.

Then I sent Obi-Wan as @greatleo described for his Obi shot. This took out the front left ship and the lazer worked out nicely to fire at some remaining debris. Thanks a bunch to both of you!!! I realize with practice, way higher scores are obtainable but that’s ok…maybe I will return…once I finish the update but more probable if it becomes a Challenge level. There’s too many other “Fun” ones to try for higher scores ;-)

3 Birds, Same Strat. In The Video
Got184180 On It

By PigsArePigs45

Somehow got 179,380 using 3 birds with the following strategy:

1. Wait 12-15 seconds, then launch Han below the biggest superstructure. Direct his blasters at the TNT. You must wait the 12-15 seconds to avoid collision with the TIE Fighter between the bottom two structures. About eight or nine pigs, including 2 TIE fighters, will kick the bucket.

2. Obi at a similar trajectory to Han, activate the force below the largest space ship. One to three more pigs eliminated.

3. Obi at any remaining debris with pigs nearby. For my 179k, there was quite a bit of debris after 2nd shot, but this one is simpler than the first 2 shots.

4. (Optional, if there is a lot of debris left) If needed, slam Chewie into the remaining debris, if there is a lot left from the first 3 shots.

201310… lucky with the first han solo as the suggestion at top states, somehow the left most laser gun got loose and turned around toward the star destroyer and just shot the heck out of it…one bird kill!!

By keikosman

Aim Han at the last pig in a bubble under the superstar destroyer. Release when his trajectory will allow you to line up a shot that shoots both the tie fighter and the first pig in a bubble.

Aim Obiwan under the superstar destroyer and past the lowest block on the bottom. Once past the block push the body of the SSD up. If lucky, this gets all the pigs and pushes the superstructure up, rotating the blaster under the planetoid and towards the first star destroyer.

If you’re extremely lucky the ricocheting of the lasers kills the rest of the pigs, destroys most of the metal structures, and hits the dynamite throwing the pieces back there into the gravity wells of the planets.
