Bad Piggies Hidden Skull Level 5-V Walkthrough

This video shows you how to get the skull that is hidden in Bad Piggies Tusk ‘Til Dawn Level 5-V. The skull is in the extreme top-right corner of the level and nearly impossible to reach. Nearly. Nothing is impossible for us, though! Use an airplane propeller atop a pile of soda bottles to blast Freckles toward the skull.

If you have a different strategy for completing this level feel free to leave a comment below.

The success of this seems to depend on one or more random variables determining how much oomph is in the soda bottles, how equally balanced they are, and possibly how powerful the engine is.
Just how many tries did it take you to succeed?

@Sal9 @sal — So just how many tries did it take? I’m on an iPad running IOS 7, and the soda bottles just don’t seem to have enough oomph to get there.

@MVNLA2 It’s a big factor of timing. Don’t start the propeller until after lift off, otherwise it will pull the contraption left. But definitely activate both sets of bottles simultaneously.

I had better control with the same basic contraption (two wooden boxes, pig + engine, propeller at the top) but with umbrellas on the right and left of the contraption instead of soda bottles. This gives you the ability to actually fly the “airplane” by opening and closing the umbrellas. :)

@teogeo — Any hints on how to use the umbrellas? So far I haven’t had any luck.

@MVNLA2 Sure, here’s a demonstration:

Hope it helps! :)

Thanks @teogeo! Takes a bit of practice, but worked! A lot easier than the video for me. Even with Slim’s tip, the viedo method just seemed like random chance, and mostly didn’t even get close.


I had some much better luck with this contraption:

The contraption goes from left to right.

Empty, Propeler, Empty
Red Rocket, Box Crate (Brown) with Pig inside, Blue Rocket
Green Bottle, Metal Crate (Silver) with Engine inside, Green Bottle

When you start, wait for the contraption to balance itself. Then, launch the rockets and bottles and wait until takeoff. Right when it takes off, activate the propeller. It will glide you towards the skull.

I eventually succeeded with two wooden boxes, propeller on top, pig in top box, engine beneath, one set of bottles on the top box and the other set on the other box, as far right as it will go. Wait for contraption to settle, start one set of bottles, lift off, start propeller, start other set of bottles. Needs to be smoothly done to get the angle.

Here’s a repeatable way that works well for me.

X, X, X, Prop, X
X, X, Black Soda, Wood Box+Pig, Black Soda
X, X, Blue Rocket,Metal Box+Engine,Red Rocket

All rockets and sodas pointing straight up.

Hit start, let things settle for a second, then hit soda, rockets, prop right after each other, maybe 1/2 second apart. Most times you will fly right, it all depends on your starting tilt.

When you reach the apex of the arc, or the top of the screen, stop the prop for a second or three, then restart it and use it as necessary to adjust your descent into the skull cave.

Thanks for the strategy Kelani – I managed to do it using a slight variation:

1. I built the contraption exactly like yours, except I used both wooden boxes.

2. When launching I hit the buttons as fast as I could in the following order: fan, soda, blue rocket, red rocket. You need to use both thumbs as they all have to fire at basically the same time to get enough power. Although the red rocket must fire fractionally after the blue in order to get it to turn to the right.

I did it using propellers and fireworks/rockets.

By a really bad piggie

I used green alien bottles and a firework easy XD
