“On my parents crumpled nest I made a promise that I would rid this land of the evil pork that took their eggs. By day, I am Terence, billionaire ornithologist. At night, the swine, a cowardly and stinky lot, call me… Wingman!”
Satirical quotes aside, get your flinger-fingers ready for a special Angry Birds Friends Wingman Tournament! coming next week. Very little is known so far, but if we’re going to speculate about how the theme will be applied, a good guess would be that the Wingman will appear as a default character in each level. Far more extreme, some members believe that the lineup will consist exclusively of Wingmen! Leaderboard masters will likely get to employ the “Hulk Smash” technique quite frequently and at a lower cost than normal *hint hint*.
You’ll have to wait until March 3rd to find out for sure, but check out this week’s tournament in the meantime! And if you need help or want to compete, we have walkthroughs ready and a leaderboard needing to be tackled!
As always, let us know what you think below.
.@AngryBirds – As Wingman's #1 fan, you KNOW I'm excited for this..

Wow! Wingman for free! It’s perfect.
Can’t wait for this!!
Since we are talking Wingman, I’ll just leave this here:
I know! Will Wingman be an opponent in the tournament maybe?
Wingman for Friends Tournament great…letting our imaginations go…where could this go for iOS, new levels in AB, new levels in Space, a start of a new game=Wingman. Yes, wishful thinking but who knows what Rovio will develop next.
Unlimited use of Wingman! Nice.
In the tweet of Rovio, they say “Wingmen” with an “e”, could this mean something?
Probably not Joey
Probably is a reference to the line of wingmans to be flinged per level.
“Who watches the Wingmen” is a riff off of the popular comic “The Watchmen.” The tag line used in all the ads was “Who Watches the Watchmen.”
It is likely just a parody by Rovio, but I would LOVE to see other superhero birds in this tournament.
Has anybody else noticed the 3 piggies in the lower right hand corner with what appears to be a light bulb on each?
One of the pigs is Fat Pig.
those are eggs, not light bulb
I hadn’t noticed, so thanks for that. They look like they have masks on, based on the little fish tail like silhouettes off their heads.
If it is only Wingmen for levels, then Agam would love this.
I think if there are strong birds, there would be strong structures too.
angry Birds Go Sub Zero episode is coming soon!
Has anybody found a Wingman telepod yet?
@chriss – Telepods have only been released for AB Star Wars, AB GO! and later this year, AB Stella.
No classic birds, Rio, Friends (which is the only place to find Wingman), Seasons, etc. have been released.
I prefer this as his theme song (though I am admittedly biased, as I wrote it..)
@fooly08 might made a batman parody.
‘Next week: Wingman vs El Porkador!! #AngryBirdsFriends ‘
NEW Angry Birds Friends tournament: Wingman vs El Porkador http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3IuL7KNQsU&feature=youtu.be
Forget Ben Affleck as Batman. Forget Captain America and Guardians of the Galaxy. Forget Spiderman 2 and X-men and Avengers 2 and all the other superhero movies coming out.
THIS. This is the epic Superhero battle we have been waiting for. Over TWO whole months in the making!! (El Porkador aired on Dec. 21, 2013).
Also, did this have influence, or was this the plan all along?
oh…I can’t wait! This will be my first Wingman battle….exercising my flinging fingers bwaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Really, unlimited use of wingman, one per level.
