Level 5-12 Walkthrough for Mighty Hoax in Angry Birds

This is my walkthrough for the Mighty Hoax level 5-12 for the iPhone game Angry Birds.

You can get all three stars in this level by only using three angry birds.

wpid 5 12 Level 5 12 Walkthrough for Mighty Hoax in Angry Birds

  1. Aim the first angry bird directly at the very top of the tall wooden block. You might be able to take a pig or two out with him, but if not, all you want to do is clear out the piece of glass on the front of the train.
  2. Aim the second angry bird right at the pig with the helmet in the front of the train. You should take out both of the pigs on the left.
  3. Aim the third angry bird at a high angle so that it comes down between the two train cars, smashes through the wood, and sets off the TNT. You will get the rest of the pigs, and most of the fruit.

If this strategy worked for you, or even if it didn’t, please leave a comment below and let me know.

    Fuckin’ bullshit, you fuckin’ bastard. Eat shit, you fuckin’ motherfucker! And put a video with your walkthrough here next time! Love you! Bye-bye!

    I was able to do it with two birds, the first hit the stick just right and managed to dislodge enough stones around the engine to kill the engineer and the pig in front, and I was able to get the second bird between the trains to blow up the TNT. 3 stars and 86560 points.

  4. I adore your wordpress web template, exactly where would you down load it through?

  5. Maria says:

    TJ’s technique of using the first two birds to hit the little stone of the first train is the best. This leaves a wide gap for the yellow bird.

    I was trying for 3 days with other techniques, and with TJ’s suggestion I managed in 2 tries.

  6. erin says:

    used this technique and ended up taking them all out with only 2 birds! 3 stars, score of 80750 :) thanks!

    I didn’t work for me. Im finding it impossible to “Aim the third angry bird at a high angle so that it comes down between the two train cars, smashes through the wood, and sets off the TNT.” Everytime, my gap is to small, and the 3rd birds hits the stone top instead.
    Any other ways to just get passed this level?

  8. gina says:

    Worked, one bird left 3stars over 85000 thanks for the tip!

    Love the tip……

  11. TJ says:

    Goodness me! This level is a pain.
    Just did it scoring 80640 and 3 stars with bird to spare.
    I hit the wooden block taking out no pigs…..
    Aimed and hit the tiny stone block holding the train in place…….
    Front of train rolled forward and collapsed killing both big pigs…..
    clear shot at TNT car which blew and wiped out the rest of the pigs……
    Good luck all

  12. jamesong says:

    yo guys,

    i got 87720 for this level – shld be worth 4 stars!

  13. Alyce says:

    I did it in two. First bird took out both pigs in front.

  14. lishhhh says:

    Alll of your strategies work for me. Keep up the good work

  15. Alicia says:

    I used this and it worked, had to try a few times before I was successful but once I was,:I completed the level with 3 stars! Woohoo!

  16. pete says:

    Just managed over 97000. First red to hit sideways on the corner of wood and stone over the TNT, this cleared all pigs with one bird. Really tricky to hit exact.

  17. Jenny says:

    Love your tips,have helped me many times. Thanks :)

  18. JD says:

    You can actually get those first two pigs with only 1 red bird

  19. mary says:

    I discovered that I could use the first two birds to blow up the small block in front of the first tire. Then the front part of the truck started moving and self destructed. From there I could use the next bird (if arced correctly) to destroy the back load of the truck.

  20. Jamie says:

    Can’t seem to get this with two birds, but I can do it consistently with three:

    1) Aim low at wood block, if all goes well, the longer piece will end up lying flat.
    2) Fire the next one at the little block holding the train in place. A direct hit will destroy it and set the train in motion, killing the engineer.
    3) Now you have a nice clean shot with the yellow bird at the TNT.

    3 stars and around 75,000.

    I have yet to successfully blow up the rear train with a red bird while the two cars are together, respect to those who can do this!


    This helped me sooooo much! I was on this level for 3 days….I just passed it after reading this and I jumped on the couch and celebrated. THANK YOU!!!!!!

  22. atlesq says:

    Finally! This was the only level on Angry Birds where I just could not get past 2 stars. I just scored 86,880 and 3 stars. I aimed the first bird at the top of the wooden block. It broke the glass, killed the helmet pig and caused top of the train to fall on the first pig. I finally got the second angry angled perfectly (at a high angle) so it hit the front of the second car and blew up the whole damn thing.

  23. prj says:

    I aimed the first 3 birds down low. It got the first pigs and by hitting the wheels it moved the cars apart allowing me to hit the TNT and get the other car full of pigs.

    • Becki says:

      Thank you sooooo much…. if it hadn’t been for your strategy, I would’ve been stuck on this level forever!! I was able to get all them all with 1 bird to spare with this technique… it leaves room for error when you’re aiming for the 2nd car with the yellow bird.

  24. MAIKEL567 says:

    I know what u mean but it for me didn’t work. At the second red one and the yellow one to hit the TNT…. but thanks for help!

  25. Dav says:

    Its actually possible to get both pigs in front with only 1 bird.

    The stone about the helmet big can fall, and kill the first pig as well as the helmet one.

    But, its kinda hard to get to the TNT with the second bird (red one), instead of the yellow one.

    • erin says:

      yeah that happens to me every time the first bird gets both…. i haven’t mastered getting the tnt yet though…

  26. dudenukem says:

    The highest score I can seem to get is about 77400 which gives me three stars, However somehow my wife has a score of 81230…Can’t seem to figure how she did it…

    • Angry Bird says:

      I just finished with 82200. Maybe your wife and I are simply rocking the game, and you are not :-P

  27. Ryan says:

    Wow, it takes a great deal of precision to get that third bird to land in the right spot. I was stuck on this level for hours even after reading this!
