Complete Angry Birds Star Wars 2 Characters Guide – All Characters & Powers

With the release of Angry Birds Star Wars II comes incredible responsibility… To remember all of the characters, that is. As Yoda would say, “Do or do not, there is no try.” The purpose of this guide is to provide you a one-stop reference to all playable characters found in Angry Birds Star Wars II. We put names to faces, explain their abilities, and hopefully answer a few questions along the way. Be sure to use the quick links below to jump between the Bird Side and the Pork Side.

Character Video
Boba Fett

Boba FettDouble Missile

this is great… i think there’s so much confusion for me about which levels can be unlocked in the Reward Chapter through normal gampelay and not normal gameplay, is it possible to see that info here?

Rank: Gold Flinger with 8255 points
By Cal010 (@cal010)

Here’s a guide I wrote up for the previous article, but I think it fits better here.

Without spending credits, it’s possible to unlock reward levels for the following characters, using the specific swaps given by achievements:

(For the birds, level B2-10 is a good option to maximize score. Use the power on the left helicopter, while throwing the bird into the lower pigs. This works for all three of the below characters.
NOTE: It’s easy to mess up this level! @bad-piggies-2 suggests B2-20 instead. Both of these levels may or may not work, so be sure to choose carefully before flinging, especially for the younglings.)

Mace Windu: You’re given a bunch of these guys, so it should be easy to unlock his level.

Padme Amidala: You have less than Mace, but still more than enough to unlock the level.

Jedi Youngling: This is the first challenge, as you’re only given three, there’s no room for failure. I did this on B2-10, you will get enough points in three attempts as long as you don’t fail the level (split into the helicopter and lower pigs). It’s okay to use other birds to clean up if the younglings don’t pop all the pigs.

You’re also given Captain Panaka and Anakin Skywalker Jedi Padawan, but seemingly not enough to unlock their levels, as the score requirement is too high. (If you figure out how, please tell!)

For the Pork side:

Zam Wesell: I messed this one up! Like the younglings, you only have three chances, which is just enough. I did this on P1-3 (pull the magnet down). Unfortunately, one of my attempts didn’t do enough destruction, and I was unable to beat the rest of the birds with the other pigs. P2-8 may be a better choice.

Darth Vader: Vader needs a lot of points (500k), but you also have a lot to use. I did this on P2-1, just throw straight ahead, activate, and watch stuff break. Clean up with Maul if needed.

TIE Fighter Pilot: You have lots of these guys, just shoot the wood holding the top magnet on P1-19 and you should have no problem even if you mess up a few times.

Anakin Episode III: You don’t unlock these guys until you have 20 stars for Pork reward, so you have do the others first. Same strategy as Darth Vader, but you have less to use.

These levels are just suggestions, please go ahead and let us know if you find better ones!

And of course, you can spend your credits in the shop to buy swaps in order to unlock more levels, but that’s up to you. I’m personally going to save them and maybe unlock permanent Darth Vader usage in the future. Remember that certain characters are likely to be free in future updates, so spend wisely.

Level B1-10 is great for the birds. If you take out the triangular block before the cart, you get about 60,000 points. It’s a one birder if you hit it right.

I haven’t tried it with all the birds–I tried the level too late for that. Any bird that can take out the block should work though.

Thanks for the guide!

Rank: Out of this World with 2995 points
By Arth (@arthromod)

If you are having trouble with getting the Padme reward level here is a pretty good guide.
On level B2-5 use Padme to push the TnT connected to the chain. The TnT should blow up the top building with debris falling to the right to blow the TnT shooting the rocks out knocking down the right building. BEWARE THIS CAN FAIL! Make sure the long wooden plank is destroyed holding up the top buildings. I got the reward level with 2 remaining Padmes so you have more then enough. Also make sure you unlock all the Padmes you can in the achievements. You don’t need to buy any.

Is P1-3 really the best for Zam and how should I use her? Where to grab and release etc.? Thanks.

Rank: Gold Flinger with 8255 points
By Cal010 (@cal010)

Here is my v1.2 update to this guide:

As many people pointed out, B1-10 is a much better choice for birds than the ones I initially suggested. In 1.2, you are given three Chewbaccas and a few (two I think?) Anakin Padawans. Both of these are enough to unlock their levels using B1-10.

Padme and Panaka are main characters in the new chapter, so their part of the guide is now irrelevant. This is true for Zam as well.

There is only one new Pork side character you are given for free: General Grievous. You get 10 of them, but you also need 300k points, so there’s some room for error. My new recommended level for Pork side is P3-2. If you hit the rope holding the tnt, you’re good to go. Depending on the character swap, you should fire one (or even two) Darth Mauls to clear the wood and enemy bird in the way so the swap can get to the rope easily. You would think Grievous can get through the wood, but I’ve found that he can’t usually.

And an update to credit uses: You can now get 4610 credits without spending money or credits. That’s obviously more than enough for permanent Darth Vader, but I’m finding it hard to pull the trigger on the purchase (I’ve been discussing it here: Of course you can still use your credits to unlock the other reward levels for the new hologram and other characters, but be aware that some of them will be free eventually and those credits will have been wasted.

@cal010 @tomdaylight — Does anyone have any new suggestions for earning pork-side characters? Is P3-2 still the best? It wasn’t my best friend for some characters.
On the bird side, using Chewbacca’s reward level to earn points for other characters worked like a charm, but I messed up Carbonite Han Solo.

Rank: Gold Flinger with 8255 points
By Cal010 (@cal010)

@mvnla2 I actually messed up Lando, Han, Shocktrooper, and Tusken raider already. Haven’t used the other 2 Porks because I don’t know any good levels. These new guys are super hard. P3-2 will not work here.

Flint suggested P2-4, and while this can work, it’s not reliable. I don’t know of any Pork levels that are reliably worth 100k.

Rank: Sling God with 30445 points
By SnTrooper (@sntrooper)

P3-S3 is perfect for the Tusken. Just fling a Droideka (without activating) to cut the chain to move the boat over then fling the Tusken at the left TNT while shooting the top TNT. Easy 100K. Should also work with the Shocktrooper (and other ranged attack characters) by flinging them into the middle of the level and shooting up at the TNT but I haven’t tried it yet.

Rank: Sling God with 30445 points
By SnTrooper (@sntrooper)

Ends up P3-S3 isn’t good for the Shocktrooper because the left TNT doesn’t blow so you only get 90k. Still good for the Tusken and ranged characters that you have more than just three swaps of though.

Pork Side

Biker Scout

Try to use them in your target. TNTs and Iron TNTs are a primary target. You can target weak areas so the building will colapse and kill a lot of birds. I even have infinite of it.

By tomdaylight

For the bird side, get Chewbacca out of the way first. Aim right in his reward level and you get 130,000 points easily with any character. Or just fling Chewbacca himself and swap character and fire while he’s mid-flight and earn the points that would have been allocated to Chewbacca. (For the characters with guns, best practice is to fire upwards and shoot at the grey explosives.) Got all the birds very easily, it’s just the last three pigs that are causing me headaches now…

I finished Anikin episode 2 on B1-7. You cut the cord for the catapult and if it drops right you clear 60k. Unlocked his level with three shots.

By Dr_Veseluj

The best level for Darth Vader is, IMHO, P2-17. You just need to throw Darth Vader in the middle of two pairs of flying platforms and activate his force aming the shootin guy… above 110000 pts each time!!!

By Destiny Warrior

Cal, just want to point out that B1-10 is infinitely more reliable than B2-10, from my experience. I unlocked Mace, Padme, Anakin Episode II and Jedi Youngling on those levels with ~0 chance of failure(practiced with Qui-Gon 2-3 times before I marathoned all of them, that was enough). I had some bad luck with B2-10 and Mace initially, and Jedi Youngling in particular is very limited in terms of initial supplies, so that might be better.

Why would Boba Fett appear in this game if it is for the prequels (I know that he appears in Attack of the Clones, but as a child, with no helmet or power)? Also, love the concept that the Storm Troopers can’t aim xD Maybe Rovio is giving us a hint that they are going to extend this game to include the original trilogy (and hopefully eventually [<-bad grammar] the sequel trilogy) in this style of gaming? While they don't discontinue the original app, but it is close to finishing anyways…

Also zam weasel I don’t get how to get the magnet to break off… Only have 4 left so it would be great for a better explanation… If I hook to the magnet nothing happens and I don’t seem to have room to attach to the chain and break it

As far as we know, Rovio has no plans to add the game to Facebook — especially considering it’s not available as a standalone app for PC yet.

By Destiny Warrior

After some calculator tapping – you need 65300 bird credits to unlock every character for infinite swaps(which would probably be “true” completion of the game).

Posting in case slim thinks this is worth recording in the main post.

How about adding the infinite swap price for each character? Wouldn’t that be a more useful information (considering future updates and the high chance that the adding will change)?

why doesn’t Leia and Padme use blasters like they did in the movies? they shouldn’t have these “Force” powers. (well…Leia MAYBE lol)

Rank: Sling God with 30445 points

They don’t have force powers, they have a device that does it. I’m not sure about SW2 but in the original you can see Leia’s in the help video (? button in pause menu). As to why they don’t use blasters, other characters already do so having them have a different ability is more interesting plus it is more like the original Pink Bird’s bubble ability.

@AMslimfordy Biker Scout is not in the prequel movies. so i think he is only available in telepods

You mean for unlocking? B 1-10. In fact, if you want to unlock any character through swaps, B1-10 is the place you want to go to. Easy 58k-60k on each try.

Can anybody help with me with silver c3po ,please?
I bought 10,already wasted 3 trying b1-10.
Any suggestions? Best level?
It is my last character to unlock.

By holzlondon

I did the same thing and I’m not sure how to get the 200,000 points with 7 left. I have no more credits to buy more with.

If you have any updates I’d appreciate it. He’s also the last character left for me at this stage.

By Nagarian47

I found a level which match perfectly to unlock this character. It’s b1-9. You exchange the first bird with him, then throw it to the first catapult like the balls can go hit the central tower. If all pork doesn’t die, use leaving birds to kill them. You this technique you get between 5000 and 6500 for the silver c-3po. =D

Rank: Deputized with 155 points
By TheCockroach (@thecockroach)

Actually.. there’s a MUCH better level. It’s B3-S3, and I got 128,000 with just one Silver C-3PO. But you have to do it just right, but either way you can get way more then 5000-6500 for each one that way. Check the guide for that level, I’m pretty sure it shows the same way I’m referring to.

I have some simple tips for character swaps. they are:-
1) See if there is a better alternative for a character you are buying. (eg:Anakin episode 3- Darth Vader)
2) Buy only one character at each category. For example don’t buy general greivous and darth maul. Buy any one.Because they have a similar ability and are a waste of money.
3) Buy samples of characters if you are not sure about their abilities if you are buying a permanent character.
4)And If you bought a character , don’t regret it.

Characters to buy:-

Bird Side:-

Light sabres: Buy Jedi Luke instead of Qui-gon jinn or Anakin Episode 2. Luke will cause more damage than others and is available for the same price.

Blaster: You have the choice to buy han solo or captain panaka. choose what you will need- many laser shots or strong lasers.

Boomerang lightsbaer: Mace Windu is great for penetrating objects. If you want to detonate a TNT with Many stone or steel blocks protecting it, Mace windu may be the right choice.

Electrocution: Buy R2D2. R2D2 is a good choice for zapping enemies through steel,wood ,glass.

Characters to avoid: Yoda and Jar Jar. They are not useful in many levels.

Pork Side:-

Lightsaber:You can buy Darth Maul or General Grievous regarding this.

Blaster: There are a lot of options for this. If you want strong laser shots buy TIE Fighter. If you want many shots, buy storm trooper or shadow trooper.

Invisibility: Shadow troopers are cheap and a great choice. they work for wood and glass. Regarding steel, Hologram Darth Sidious is the only choice.

Force : Darth vader is the best of all though he is costly. He is better than Anakin Episode 3.

I’m with you @joeba — Now that the Gallactic Giveaway is out, I am more interested in opening up all the rewards levels.
My favorite bird side level is BR-11 Chewbacca, but I’m not sure what to use for pork side.
I still have
Bobb Fett
Biker Scout
Hologram Darth Siduous
Jabba the Hut
Royal Guard
Tusken Raider
@Cal010 — Any update on suggestions? @Spart83 @EricBirdz??? Anyone?

Rank: Sling God with 34190 points

@mvnla2 I played Royal Guard in P2-4. I had 5X the character and had to use it 5 times in order to get the achievement.
Not sure it’s the best but it made it for me.
I’m loving this giveaway cause it made me open lots of characters. I’m still missing three characters:
– Hollogram Darth: I have none to play..
– Jabba: I have 3 characters and want to know which level is best to use them
– Tusken Raider: I used the 3 given but missed one of them. P3-S3 is the best level as stated above.

The Chewbacca reward level is great for Jabba.

P1-5 is excellent for Biker Scout. You only need to use him to beat the level twice.

Only problem is, there’s not much wiggle room. I got 3 Scouts as a Carbonite Reward, and screwed up the first attempt.

What a great job! I was just starting to write something similar to this and thought, “Why, I bet it at angry birds nest already!” sure enough.

The one thing that I would add is how much it costs to buy how many characters.

But, after thinking about it, I realized that what my costs are might not be the same for everyone else. What do I know is in Rovio’s mind? Maybe my cost per character is very high because Rovio wants me to start spending money. I have yet to spend any money on Rovio/Star Wars, that is my personal challenge (because I’m less than broke). I saved up enough money to buy one permanent bird and pig, which helped me collect all of the coins in chapters 1 through 3 and fill my piggy bank.

Now the challenge is to get through this chapter without spending anything, which is not easy, let me tell you. But that adds a layer of strategy.

Wish me luck, as I wish you the same.

Use PR -11 to with hologram Darth Sidious to open his level. Follow @wrw01‘s strat. Took me 7 Darths, but someone else could probably do it in less. A good shot can easily get quite a bit more than 100K.

Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but just in case one is looking for the best way to unlock the reward levels on the birdside but the easiest level is Chewbacca reward level. But before I discovered the Reward levels have swap abilities (never occurred to me as those levels are about the one character, it seems weird to offer a swap there) I used B3S3 for Kit and Wicket… fun to watch

Unlock the Kit Fisto reward level video
Unlock the Wicket reward level video
Unlock the Lando reward level video
Unlock the Carbonite Han Solo reward level video

@leggy — If you go to the rewards chapter and click on the new characters, it goes to the achievements page where it tells you who they are. I don’t understand why the regular achievements page of characters doesn’t have the new characters or why they aren’t included in the carbonite melt. Maybe they ixed that in the update that came out today???

@leggy The reward chapters are lined up. First the top row then the bottom row. So since Sabine is BR25 and Hera is BR27 Chopper must be BR26, Kanan BR28, and Zeb BR29. Same for the pork side Inquisitor PR22, Imperial Officer PR23, and Vizago Droid PR26.
