Angry Birds Star Wars Hoth Level 3-8 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Hoth level 3-8 is to fire the Blue Bird pilots under the initial platform, into the snow next to the AT-AT. This should cause the tower to topple on the left side. Time your shot with Luke to both pop the leftmost storm trooper and redirect the lasers with the lightsaber into the TNT within the AT-AT. If needed, use Blue Bird pilots to destroy the rightmost ice structure.

First bird high lob (make sure to avoid lasers, launch just when the blaster has fired). The aim is to hit just to the left of the “ears” of the ATAT with the left bird, but not touch the trooper that sits just to the left. The bord will roll down and knock down the ice support and the entire left side will collapse. This makes the second shot a bit easier.

This works well. I’ve duplicated your score several times. very worthy alternative.

Using the video method i was always left with that grinning Pig at the top right. I found it easier to shoot my Blue Pilots at the right top structure. It doesn’t take much to bring down that whole structure, including that offensive creature, and usually the rightmost Storm Porker. Then second shot as video and with a little luck and timing you can kill all pigs and cause major destruction.

This method definitely did the trick for me! With the video version, I too was always left with the far right pig, but I got 3 stars the first time I attempted it this way!

By Nadine

Score 99,700 using the method in the video… Kept trying to get the snow under the AT-AT’s head to see if I could get a
ricochet hit into the ice on the upper right… But pretty sure it’s impossible :-( Anyone else try that and succeed?

Rank: Master Slinger with 7205 points
By TruckDriver (@truckdriver)Score: 99,120

Nope, couldn’t do it. It seems that the AT-AT and the snow above it “decouples,” when you manage to undermine the AT-AT. The pig snowtroopers don’t move at all, and keep firing in the same direction.

Video method is brilliant. I am not great shoter so I went easy and pretty clear common way, destroy icy structure on right with Pilots and split lasser beams with Luke’s saber. after seeing this I am ashamed, it is great and I’m going to give it try.

I can’t pass film method at now (3B of course yes). Coudn’t send fly shoot. Late at night I pass it easier way. “BB white” ;) aim to glass right part. All of it will collapse. Very good if falling glass kill a shooting trooper. Then 2nd shoot is easier to do. Next Luke high lob aiming on left TNT or to cut left lowers trooper shelf AND detonate TNT with GLS.

By Liam

100010 – Going to the upper glass first with the pilot bird. One of the glass blocks turned the laser pig backwards, making a deflection shot somewhat easier. Used the light saber to deflect into the TNT and the left side.
It was a fluky looking thing, but I’ve manage to do it several times.

I am convinced the 102K PLUS scores on the leader board are from something turning the the laser pig to take out the left side and the TNT’s.

I’ve been following the video method, but there’s the possibility that the laser firing trooper could be used against the game if it can be redirected towards the TNT.

I’ve also been following the video, and got one of the lasers to somehow redirect itself towards the upper-right pig. Gave me a 2-birder score of 101k :)

It is possible to redirect the firing pigtrooper, though it hasn’t always given consistent results, it depends on the careful deflection of the laser blasts. I’ve been sending the 1st shot to the upper right glass, aiming higher up, there’s less chance of killing the firing pig that way. Then aim Luke low over the left structure & time it so you redirect the laser shots when he’s right over this structure, 1 of them can go into the snow under the firing pig causing him to fall left & hopefully hit the left structure with a couple of blasts before dying. Once damaged the whole left side can fall down for more points.

Followed BirdLeader’s video for the majority of play on this level. One of Luke’s lasers went into the left side’s stone blocks and then ricocheted into the head of the AT-AT to provide an additional 1K+ in points.

I got my best scores sending bb up high to the right glass structure. You want them to come in at the top thin horizontal glass plank and the vertical thick one below it. Split them just before impact so they stay close together. They will get the left trooper immediately and then bring down the right one too, along with all the glass and the bottom right trooper pig. For higher end score you should have between 28K to max of 29K. 29K is possible if you manage to get every piece of glass and the bottom right trooper.

Second bird, aim Luke barely over the left structure with just enough room for him to clear top. Time him to come to the top there just after the firing trooper releases his lazers so that when Luke’s saber meets the lazer, slice the lazers between the first and second beams. This should redirect two of them downward taking out the left strucutre, meanwhile Luke’s body should land on the left tnt, igniting the other and the whole middle blows up taking out the lazer trooper and all the rest. The damage varies, but you can get most of the AT-AT to be destoyed.

Fun level!!!

I decided to just go and upload all my previous scores onto the leaderboard rather than doing them one at a time as I’ve been trying to get higher scores, and I noticed my score on this level is about 5000 higher than anyone else’s — so I posted a screenshot of this level showing the high score. I don’t know what I did to get it, because it was a while ago.

I remember working on this level for a LONG time because it took a while for me to figure out how everything on the screen interacted with everything else. I don’t remember if it was a one-birder or if I strategically worked the firing trooper to destroy other things. When I get back to looking at this level I’ll see if I can duplicate it.

Got a lucky one-birder!
Aimed at the top piece of the small ice tower on the left and split shortly before that. The bottom bird took out the pigtrooper behind the ice tower, the middle bird hit the snow under the shooting pigtrooper, and the top bird collapsed the entire ice structure. This is pretty straightforward so far (the ice structure collapses about 10% of the time on this shot).
Here is the good part: some pieces of falling ice pushed gently against the back of the shooting pigtrooper on the weakened snow, causing it to lean forward. Its shots bounced back into the TNT and the rest was history.

I support <@trinit> strategy with some additional things that I learned during the process of improving my score from 104K to over 107K.

The ideal scenario is to split the blue bird so the:
– Lower bird hits the left most cement and glass tower and “nudges” it on an angle (or destructs)
– Middle bird hits just in front of the shooting pig trooper
– Top bird just misses the top of the shooting pig trooper and hit the right most glass tower and falls in two steps
o The first is to have one of the long glass planks fall on the
helmet of the short pig trooper so that he begins to rotate
forward and
– the laser shot hit the left most tower and doing some damage
– the ricochets hit the TNT and complete the rest of the
o The second is to have the upper part of the glass tower is to fall
to the left and either break on its own or break when the TNT

The trajectory and timing I used is as follows:
– use the fully zoomed out view and the zoomed in view does not make
it easy to used and landmarks for aiming
– there are two square blocks near the top of the hill between the
sling and the left side of the nearest structure. I aimed between
one and two beam widths above the right most (highest) block.
– I released the blue bird from the sling just as the first laser
bullet leaves the pig troopers gun
– I split the birds some where between 35% and 45% of the distance
between the sling and the edge of the top piece on glass on the left
most structure. Once you get into the “rhythm,” it will become much
easier to deal with the moving screen in the zoomed out view.

Below is a screen shot of a “near miss” that shows the trajectory and the position of the all the moving parts described above. Unfortunately, the glass did not fall correctly and the AT-AT would not shake and help me out.

Long winded explanation, but I hope this will help.
