Angry Birds Star Wars Hoth Level 3-39 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Hoth level 3-39 is to aim Han toward the left stalactite, shooting the right one down while Han is ascending. After the smoke clears, all that should remain is one mynock in the middle of the ceiling, guarded by another stalactite. Shoot down the stalactite and pop the mynock with Han’s body. The score in the video below is 83,970.

Slightly different approach. Find the vertical metal plank just to the right of the flying piggie on the right. That’s your target. Fire Han up high, and aim at the plank just before the first stalactite blocks the shot (so that you fire a couple shots to the plank, but the last one hits the stalactite). It will take a couple tries, but it’s not hard.

That will drop the first stalactite, but the ricochet from the first shots will also take down the second one. With a little luck, that clears most of the left consistently.

Second shot is easy. Hit the left hanging piggie with Han. A little before he hits though, shoot the last stalactite (which will also hit the other hanging piggie). The stalactite will finish off the level.

Thank you @thalen! I’d been working a similar strategy trying to knock out the stalactites but couldn’t quite get a two bird 3* ending. I finally Got the 3* paying attention to your description! And I also discovered that 3 stars is actually 82k (not 83k). So I do have a little more work to do to get over Average – then I’ll start posting.

Used pretty much the same approach as @thalen but aimed lower on the right hand tower when I fired Han. This made the tower more unstable and it collapsed easily when the next shot was fired through the right stalactite.

I used a slightly different approach. I aimed the first Han at the second stalactite and shot the first one as I passed it. This took out everything on the left.

Then I shot the second Han at the first hanging mynock, but just high enough to clip him. As soon as I hit him I fired at the far right stalactite and that finished off the level.

Here is a modification of the above strategy of @thalen that makes the first shot much easier and results in a relatively consistent high score two-bird strategy. Aim Han at the tip of the first stalactite (as a result, both stalatites will fall and destroy the left structure), shoot as Thalen describes at the vertical metal plank of the right structure. What is important here is that Han’s fire should ricochet and drop the middle structure (this is a must if you want a high score). If your goal is to break 90K, repeat the first shot until the middle structure is down. Second bird, as described before: send Han at the first (highest) hanging mynock and as soon as you touch him shoot at the last stalactite: this will destroy the right structure, hopefully giving you a good score at the end.

Here’s another variation:

Aim at the tip of the first stalactite (a la @annach). Shoot horizontally as you approach the stalactite, so that the first two shots take out the stalactite to the right + the hanging pig, and the last shot releases the second stalactite from the left. The second stalactite will start to fall, but Han will crash into it as it falls and push it to the right so that it takes out the middle tower. It’s easier than it sounds.

Now everything that remains should be the hanging pig in the middle. Target score at this point: 56-58k. Aim at the hanging pig and target laser at the debris in the middle (preferably the wooden parts).

I was able to use the video method, but I got extremely lucky as richochet brought down all three stalactites nearly simultaneously. This left me with just the hanging mynock pig, so I aimed Han into more of the structure while shooting the mynock.

I didn’t get as many points, but I finally have this level in the can, so I think I can call it even.

Not quite the highest score – but aiming just to clip the tip of the first stalactite with Han and blasting at the very top of the block immediately abutting the left of the far right tower richocheted enough to clear all but one Mynock and cause major damage. If there’s a 1 birder for this level I think this might be the way to go.

Aye I so agree! Frustrating though to have so much damage but that last mynock sitting pretty! Easily a 93k or more score if he’d just bite the dust!! I can’t figure out how to either get a ricochet or the stalactite to hit him!! :/ I guess that’s what you’d seriously call the ‘L’ factor kicking in! *Sigh*

I was little under adv there. I pass it with 1B / 93.230 / #12. Before I made some 2B which was “almost 1B”. 3 times I made this shoot corectly but the destruction was not finished (all top things gone but down – not). My best 2B was 88K.

It’s better to watch @yuriyigolkin video to catch a described way with tap point at left concrete wall of last left tower. This trick with deeper tap I used in others levels too. It’s flatten an angle and is easiest to repeat. For me this level is 2 hand job.

Thanks for heads-up regarding the @yuriyigolkin video. The timing was very challenging, but doable once you find a rhythm. Higher one bird scores might be possible as I had a 62K+ score before bonus birds with one crummy pignock remaining. Oh well, maybe I will come back to this level at some point in te future :)

Lots of good strats here. This combination of shots is what worked best for me. Aimed Han as described by @thalen and @steely59, and fired all three shots down into the right structure so that the ricochets did a lot of damage to the middle structure instead of taking down the second stalactite. The falling first stalactite did some damage to the left structure, but more importantly caused it to tumble to the right. Aimed the second shot at the top of the middle stalactite and fired quickly to hit the right hanging minock and stalactite. When Han hit the middle stalactite, it took out the hanging minock behind it, and then did massive destruction when it fell on the remains of the first structure below. Meanwhile the right stalactite finished off the right structure. Like many other levels, higher scores come with more destruction, and this was the best way I could find to maximize the destructive power of the stalactites.

Been playing with this strat, and I have a couple of additional tips. I try to get the first shot off quickly – if the falling stalactite hits the left flying mynock when it is at the top of its cycle, I get a better collapse of the left structure. On the second shot, wait to fire Han’s blaster until it’s basically a horizontal shot, so that one of his blasts hits the middle stalactite. This will cause the stalactite to fall so Han can pass above it to take out the hanging mynock behind it, then go on to hit the remains of the right structure and do more damage there. I can often get 90k with this strat with a best so far of 92,750.

When I gained this top score, the method of the screen capture had not taken the post of me yet at the body.
In addition, he does not remember by what kind of method this score was already gained now.

The strat that finally worked for me after what seemed forever, is a combination of everybody else’s that I came up with.

1) Launch Hans so he hits the tip of the first stalactite and fire your laser down at the little block of wood sitting on top of the second tower, the second stalactite will also drop as Han hits it and the ricochets will take out everything but 2 mynocks (1 hanging and the little one fluttering about below right).

2) Launch your second Han so he strikes the hanging mynock and fire your laser at the fluttering mynock.

2 leftover birds = 20000 Bonus points.

Where to start oh where to start??? Like werewolf69, it’s not just one person. I’m going to thank many of you as I improved slightly with each as I played on Android phone. Awhile ago when simply trying for 3*, I most likely used the video method for 82250.

Today when playing for an above average score & trying to improve my rank, I first tried @thalen & with very 1st try improved almost 4k to an above average score of 86130. Next I followed @annach, which fine-tuned thalen’s first shot & I improved to 87310 pretty quickly, but could not improve further.

Finally, I read @hallieginsb suggestion about noting the closest flying mynock position. Unlike hallieginsb’s suggestion to shoot early or “to get the first shot off quickly,” I waited. When the level starts this mynock is low & moving up. I waited until it reached the highest position & then aimed Han as described. This flying mynock on the far left did not die from debris raining down, rather it died as the leftmost tower collapsed rightwards. At the time of the tower collapse, the mynock was almost at the lowest position & still moving down, so it was below the falling tower & was caught as the tower’s debris fell right. Had I not delayed my 1st shot, it would have been too high & survived. After this shot I had over 40k with 3 left; the one protected on lower right & the 2 hanging from above. Some of the middle tower had been destroyed which hadn’t really happened before & explained the extra few thousand points I’d not had in my many previous attempts.

The 2nd & last shot was so that Han bumped into the left hanging mynock as I shot towards the right stalactite. The other mynock also came down & the stalactite took out the remaining structure & last mynock as so many others have described for an overall improvement of 3k, closing the level with 90350 using 2-birds.

While a 1-birder eludes me, I really do prefer these levels where there’s more than 1 way to skin a pig, especially with the different platforms, devices & skill levels here on ABN.

A succesfull strategy I’ve been playing with is to aim Han at the tip of the first stalactite and then, after one second or a bit less, shoot at the tip of the branch in the lower right corner. It is important that all three lasers only just miss the first structure.

One laser richochets into the stalactite to the right and one laser ricochets a few times to kill both hanging winged pigs.

Current high score with this is 93780, but there was still quite some debris left.

If I get this HTML-thingamajob right you should be able to see a screenshot showing a succesfull shot (with aiming points) here:

Even more spectacular results when you don’t launch at full speed, but at 99 or 98 percent. Reason is that both the first ans second stalactites fall down differently (and significantly better). Now at 95330

Thanks @woezeltje, your strat did it for me. Very unforgiving level that requires precision with timing, and position of the tapping point in order to get the ricochets to take down the two hanging mynocks. Then the luck factor kicks in – to get higher scores you need the central structure to be damaged by falling debris, especially the left wooden support so the structure can collapse.

1 birder. Fairly low score (75060). Han into the first hanging bird. As he hits, fire into middle of the slanting block on the last structure. Ricochets will kill two on the right and set of the TNT. That send a flying piggy up into the on on the roof and enough flying stuff to take all others out.
