Bad Piggies Hidden Skull Level 1-IV Walkthrough

This video shows you how to get the skull that is hidden in Bad Piggies Ground Hog Day Bonus Level 1-IV. If you zoom out a bit, you’ll see a skull above the starting point. Build a contraption using a tnt box and soda bottles. Launch your contraption high by detonating the tnt. Then quickly trigger the gas bottles so that the pig is sent to the left on the skull above. Timing is crucial!

    Easier solution:

    make a vehicle (3 wood frames) on the edge with
    a wooden wheel on the front and metal on the back
    above the front wheel (wood) put a tnt inside the frame
    put another wooden frame with the pig above the center of the car.
    let it go and just when it hits the slope, detonate the tnt…

    Yes, this works, and is an easier contraption to make, but it took as many attempts to land the pig with this, as it did with the video.
    So i would say either one or both should be tried.

    By Alderbaran

    Yes. Much easier this way.

    Improvement of @eli Sherer’s vehicle?:
    1st column (closest to slope, from bottom) wood wheel, box with TNT, black soda bottle (unused), wood box with pig.
    In row with TNT box: 2 more boxes and metal wheel
    Detonate TNT when vehicle just slightly down slope, just past place where pig hits cliff below skull
    I found Slim’s version impossible to time (for me). I also noticed that tower leans different amounts on each restart. Most of the time it doesn’t lean enough, and pig hits cliff. If it does lean enough for pig to clear cliff, frequently pig falls out of box or you don’t get the timing on the soda bottles correct.

    This worked on the first try, thanks!

    Worked first time! After numerous unsuccessful attempts at first strategy…

    Can be done without TNT. Rocketship on wheels, with the bottles placed assymetrically. Trigger the bottles a fraction of a second one after the other so that it curves around the rock. Not sure which method is easier.

    I was very lucky with this one, I failed but the pig flew at the skull!

    I built mine like so:

    E E E G
    E E G W+PIG
    E E E W+TNT
    E E E W

    E = empty
    G = green soda positioned to propel leftwards
    W = wooden box

    and the rest is self explanatory.

    watch the tip of the tower and trigger TNT when it is approx at the 1 o’clock position. watch the flip of the pig box (the top green soda should still be there) and trigger the green soda when it is in the proper position.

    I got it on the first try with this arrangement. I tried it a few other times and hit the mark about once every 2-3 times.

    i can only do this by using this…
    you need to explode the tnt on the circled track [aim first]
    its like cannon.. you must aim [here’s the track to aim].

    good strat i got it after 5 attempts, and i couldnt get the video strat to work

    By Flying Pig

    easiest option
    E E (Wood block + PIG) (black soda to propel to the right)
    E (Metal Wheel) (Wood block +TNT) (Empty Wood Block)
    E E E (Wood Wheel)

    activate soda to go down first slope
    at base of second slope activate TNT (when angle seems about right)

    I used three wood blocks in an L shape with pig in top lef, tnt in bottom left, green bottle in top right firing to the left, another green bottle hanging off block with pig firing up, wooden wheel to the left and metal wheel to the right…let cart roll down hill and as it begins to ascend next hill fire left and aim pig at ledge…took a few tries to get aim right but worked very consistently

    By Don Perry

    I used the bottles to hold the piggie in place on top of a three box, two wooden wheel contraption with TNT in the middle, detonating on the small rise after the first downhill to achieve the proper trajectory.

    By Aiden McCarthy

    My strategy:

    E E E E
    E E [P] E
    E [ ] [ ] [t]
    E o E o

    E = empty
    [P] = pig in wood box
    [ ] = wood box
    [t] = TNT in wood box
    o = wood wheel

    As you can see, the pig is diagonal of the TNT. All you need to do is zoom out a bit as the cart rolls.
    1: Notice again the pig and TNT point upwards to the rear at a 45° angle. When this imaginary line points above the cliff that the skull is on…
    2: blast the pig and if you get it right, he will either hit the rock just behind the skull and bounce back into the bony treasure, or he will end up landing right on top of the skull!

    This one seemed the easiest as there is a larger time window for the player to blast the pig into the skull without having to deal with pinpoint accuracy bottle rockets.

    The timing may still be finicky for I retested the strategy and found that I may detonate a bit too late.

    This strategy has no bottles, just blasting a pig like an explosive catapult.

    By Aiden McCarthy

    Well turns out you can overshoot as well, so be ready to try a few times.
