I’ve killed Smaug twice. Once by accident and once by (sort of) trying. The thing to listen for is Gandalf tells you to load the windlance. If you hear that, you’re very close but a lot has to happen to get there. Basically it’s a bunch of jackpots then a super jackpot, and repeat that about 4 times. Jackpots are ramps, loops, and holes, then ARF lights blue and hitting any one of those letters is super jackpot. After you’ve done that enough times Gandalf will tell you to hit the man targets. Not sure how many times you have to do that, maybe only once, then he tells you to load the windlance. You don’t have long but if you can do it then you’ve got a short time to hit whichever of the ARF targets is lit and that kills him. The nice thing is your progress carries over. I don’t have a clue how I did it the first time but it was during my 4th Smaug multiball. Totally random just trying to keep balls in play. The next time it was during my 3rd Smaug multiball and I hit the man target at random during the chaos. Then I got a clean shot at the ramp to load the windlance. I didn’t dare take my hands off the flippers so the windlance fired itself and next thing I know he was dead. Not sure whether I hit the shot out of the windlance with the top flipper or just one of the other balls was in the right place at the right time. Either way it’s a total rush. The flippers go dead and your balls drain. First time it happened I thought something was wrong with the game. I won’t say what happens after that but when it’s over another multiball starts and everything is multiplied for your victory lap. It’s freaking awesome. More satisfying than winning an arkenstone mode in my opinion.
