The Zorlon cannon is your super weapon, which (annoyingly) you can only charge up using random enemy drops. To fire it, push both sticks in for a few seconds and then release. Unfortunately, it's rare to see 20 enemies on the screen at once.

I got it in Berserker mode Chapter 5. Keep killing the dragonfly-like green enemies (using missiles) to get the yellow Zorlon cannon drops (if you're unlucky, you won't get enough; restart if this happens). About 2/3rds of the way through the level, there will be a wave of small green enemies immediately followed by two waves of small grey enemies. And just after this, you'll pass three obvious platforms, each with 6-7 small arachnids. If you fire the Zorlon cannon a little after the grey enemies start showing up, the camera will be facing those three platforms, and you'll take out some of the small enemies plus some of the arachnids. This got me the achievement; hope it works for you!
