Angry Birds Star Wars Hoth Level 3-5 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Hoth level 3-5 is to fire Luke Skywalker towards the topmost helmet pig. The goal here is to bounce or roll through the ice so as to fall down on the far side and trigger the TNT (give it a few seconds). If successful you can finish off the remaining pigs with Leia.

Alternative method. Toss Luke down at leftmost tower, aiming for the join between the vertical legs and the metal triangles just above them. Wait until just after impact to activate the saber and it should nick the storm trooper pig as well as knock down the tower. Second, send Leia in a high arc. Near the top of her flight, activate her attract power on the bit of metal triangle peaking out behind the high trooper on the rightmost tower. A good portion of the tower will pull away, and then drop, smashing things and setting off the TNT, clearing the level.

94080 – Thanks! It may be well to point out that Leia has to come down on the middle helmet pig, and roll onto the storm trooper under it. That is the only way I could complete with two birds.
Now to find that one birder that is mentioned below.

Several different options for the 1st shot, I aimed Luke at the join between the glass & metal triangles on the 1st structure, activating the light saber well before contact for 17-18k consistently. 2nd shot like furfeather. Nice strategy!

For the leia shot: Try to time the force (?) so you activate it just before the stormtrooper pig on the right tower starts to shoot. With some skill/luck, it might fall to the left instead of popping instantly so the laser beams might cause some additional destruction on the right side.

Thanks @furfeather, after being stuck at 88k for awhile, I used your strategy & got 92900 on my Android phone using 2 birds pretty much as you described.

I’ll add that I’m revisiting this level. My initial 3* was just under 86k using video & I’m now back with upgraded green saber so I imagine there has to be a difference with the 1st shot. I will add that for the 1st shot I actually aimed higher than “the join between the vertical legs and the metal triangles just above them.” For this shot, I allowed the dotted line to create a diagonal between the corner/tip of the stone & glass triangles & ending thru the left eye of the Storm Trooper. Activate the green saber just before reaching this glass/stone corner. Luke should clear a path & continue straight to kill Storm Trooper. My highest points total was around 18,500, but mid 17s was most common. Any score under low 17s & I restarted.

It took many, many, many tries for me to get the 2nd shot where it obviously needed to be to clear the level with a decent score. I got lucky : – )

The score wasn’t as high as I thought it would be, but here’s how I did it.

1) Sent Luke to the glass top of the next to last tower then activated Lightsabre, only killed that one pigtrooper.

2) Sent Leia in a high arc to levitate the very bottom of the last tower and that took care of the rest.

2 birds left 20000 pts bonus.
I believe much higher scores are possible using this method.

Different shot #1:

Send Luke on a high arc landing just to the left of the black Helmet pig on top of the snow hill. Activate light saber, killing pig any taking out all the snow on the left side of the hill. Luke will come to rest where the diagonal metal plank rests against the hill, pushing the plank into and toppling the structure. Luke falls into white helmet. Good for 18k points.

Shot #2 as described by @furfeather.

Thanks @furfeather for the “Leia move”!!! Great thinking ;-) But also a big thanks (again) to @pourpete for this amazing first shot trajectory!!! It is sooo repeatable and you can get 18K+ EVERYTIME!!! It’s one of those “for-sure” shots that’s hard to miss ;-)

Now I just need more damage with my second bird…seems I missing out on 10K of available damage here. Nice job!!!

1. Arc Luke at an angle where he takes out the black helmet pig in the middle on the hill, if you are able to time it just right after he takes out this pig hit the lighsaber taking out most of the base and the glass that the storm pigs are on backside setting off the bombs , falling luke takes out the storm pig hanging on right, whats left of the tower takes out pig with the laser. (repeat-ability was tough on this part)

2. Arc leia over the first tower grabbing the top of the tower and the pig, the falling debris takes out the hanging pig on left.

managed to get around 85000-89000 with this method

Rank: Shooter with 790 points
By GeneO (@geneo)Score: 99,790

Here’s a completely different strategy:

1) Aim Luke in an arc that is just below the top of the mountain ridge in the background. That should send him on a trajectory that impacts the middle tower in the top half of the row of three steel triangles upon which sits a green pig surrounded by a trapezoid consisting of two panes of glass and a steel bar on top. The panes of glass are “glued” to the triangles they rest on, and the three steel triangles are all glued together.

You need to activate the light saber before impact, because they need to be damaged prior to Luke hitting them or he’ll just fall down the middle crevasse. The light saber needs to damage at least two of the three triangles or Luke will just fall down the crevasse also. Assuming two triangles are damaged prior to Luke impact, he will bounce through and knock the third one (along with the attached glass pane) over onto the metal bar protecting the three pigs on a pane of glass above some boulders and dynamite.

If the triangle and glass land with the glass horizontal, watch to see if the pane of glass supporting the pigs is moving. Usually it will slowly slide left, moving the boulders until they set off the dynamite. Sometimes things just seem to be falling down and something sets off the dynamite — sometimes after a long (several seconds) wait. It’s important that the dynamite be ignited.

If the triangle and glass land with the glass vertical, it’s usually enough weight on the right side of the glass holding the pigs to cause it to sink and then set off the dynamite. If it does, the pane of glass is shoved straight up into the diagonal metal bar supporting the wooden plank upon which sits the white pig with the blaster. If you’re lucky, the force of the impact destabilizes the right tower, causing most of it to tumble down the hill on the right (there are well over 5K points right there) and the blaster pig is destroyed. If you’re really lucky, the blaster pig is knocked slightly forward and his blasts start taking out things on the left, as well as ricocheting off debris from the explosion, taking out what’s left of the tower holding him up (that’s how I got the high score of 99,790).

Either way (glass pane on triangle vertical or horizontal), the dynamite has to explode, the right tower needs to be destabilized enough at least to kill the pig with the blaster (and hopefully have most of it fall right), and the white pig in the middle crevasse needs to have died in the explosion.

2) Aim Leia up towards the sun in a high arc that will bring her down onto the green pig on the snow (between the first and second towers). You should practice targeting this shot BEFORE you get total destruction of the right side with Luke or you will be kicking yourself for hours or days later). As soon as you let her fly, target her tractor beam on the square steel block at the base of the first tower. If you did the targeting right, the entire tower will be lifted up and left, then come crashing down and take out the hanging white pig on the left along with giving you extra points for destroying some hardware. If you targeted the tractor beam wrong, it will either only lift up a few of the vertical steel bars (target is too high or too far right), or it will barely move the steel block at the base and cause the tower just to shift slightly left (target is too low or too far left so you are trying to lift ground along with the tower).

3) Using this strategy (assuming I was able to get everything to work with Luke and then properly aimed Leia and properly targeted the tractor beam) I consistenly had scores in the high 80’s to mid 90’s. The 99,790 was when I got lucky with Luke and the blaster pig did some extra damage before suiciding (that’s EXTREMELY rare, btw). Sometimes you get lucky and flying debris will deflect some laser blasts; sometimes flying debris takes out things on the left — I assume it was some lucky flying debris results that resulted in the 1-birder mentioned earlier. It’s VERY difficult to get more than 94 or 95K using this method — you need some luck, but with practice, getting over 90K is pretty easy (once you figure out the trajectory for Luke, the timing for the light saber, the trajectory for Leia, and the targeting for the tractor beam). If you can get over 60K with Luke, you should be able to score over 90K after Leia pretty easily. Even 50K with Luke (using this strategy) will get you well over 80K total.

Here’s a screenshot showing a typical result after Luke and the ensuing explosion. It also shows my high score.

Here’s a screenshot after firing Leia up towards the sun so she took out the green pig in the snow, and tractoring the steel block at the base of the first tower.

Here’s a screenshot showing the final score for that round — over 93K, and I can get that pretty often.

Have fun — I assume someone will get over 100K eventually… I’m giving up on this level for now and moving on to the next, LOL…

Oh, I just looked at the video, LOL… my trajectory for Luke is a little lower than the video trajectory with the light saber activated much earlier. Then my Leia trajectory is similar to the @Furfeather trajectory for Luke, just a little further right.

95410 w/2 Birds.
First Bird – Aim Luke on the left-most vertex of triangular metal block, on the leftmost structure. Activate his lightsabre, just after impact. This should take out almost all the blocks of leftmost tower. Scores should be around 17-18k, after first shot.

Second Bird – Aim Leia high arc. When she is at the top, then activate her power on lower metal cube of middle tower. Lasers ricocheting with it, kill all the pigs. Scores around 85k+
Thanks to @Furfeather for the strat :)

There is a way to score more points than the video by a slight modification. Usually the middle tower will not be completely destroyed like in the video. It is best not to do very much damage to it with the first shot. Aim Leia at the top of this tower and grab the top of the left tower like in the video. This should take care of any remaining piggies. The middle tower will crash into the right hand one giving lots of extra debris points. The key is leaving the middle tower intact so that it will crash into the other one.
