    I found the caches myself using the guide on xbox360achievements.com, but added some more details and removed some spoilers:

    1. The first cache is located at the end of the first chapter. When you have to swim under water through a tunnel for the first time, it is right before the tunnel, on the left hand side under water.

    2. The rest of the caches are located in the second chapter. When you leave with the vortigaunt, the second cache is located in the wall in the first ant lion tunnel you go through.

    3. After the second cache there will be a fight with acid lions, the third cache is in the tunnel right after this fight.

    4. After the third cache there will be another fight with acid lions, the fourth cache is high up in the wall in the tunnel right after this fight.

    5. At the end of the same tunnel, right before you fall back into the mine, the fifth cache is located in the ceiling.

    6. The final four caches are located at the end of the second chapter, in the room with the elevator that brings you back to the other vortigaunts. The sixth is located in the wall right of the entrance.

    7. The seventh cache is located in the same wall a bit more to the left, behind the old water boiler.

    8. The eighth cache is located in the ceiling above the tracks.

    9. The ninth cache is also located in the ceiling, but this time above the pool with the broken engine.

    Achievement description is a little bit misleading: you don't have to break all web caches, you just need to break 9 particular web caches, located between the end of Chapter 1 and the end of Chapter 2 (so if you want to start from scratch with this achievement, you need to start from the beginning of Chapter 1, unless you have a mid-level savestate).

    As a side note, on my 1st playthrough i missed one web cache, so after beating the game i've restarted it again from Chapter 1, and once i got the 1st cache (Video 1 @2:45) the achievement unlocked itself (I think the 1st cache was exactly the one I've missed on my 1st playthrough).

    Follow these videos to understand where you can find all 9 web cache.

    VIDEO 1
    CACHE 1 @2:45

    VIDEO 2
    CACHE 2 @0:16
    CACHE 3 @1:28
    CACHE 4 @2:32
    CACHE 5 @3:00

    VIDEO 3
    CACHE 6 @0:04
    CACHE 7 @0:15
    CACHE 8 @0:45
    CACHE 9 @1:10

    Credits for the videos goes to AlxRnToker from hl2.com.ua

    rafter84ive not long stated eps2 and i want to get all the acheivment in 1 play though. Can you explain exactly what the web cache are? Are they the spider webs which the grubs are caught in?

    GottleYes, i've put the exact moment in which you can watch the position of each web cache...
    EXAMPLE: go to 2 minutes and 45 seconds of the first video to watch where the 1st web cache is

    rafter84Got the achievement to pop last night. I missed the fist one, but like noble said. I loaded up an earlier save, shot the web under water and it unlocked! Cheers for the guide. +1!

    Just a heads up with above solution from AbmaOnline (which works perfectly by the way - thumbs up!).

    6-9 are located in the _second_ room with an elevator.

    You first pass through a large room with an elevator that go way up high - that's NOT the room with caches 6-9. You need to continue.
    After being chased through the small tunnels by the large 'beasty' creature (the Guardian) you'll get to a room with an elevator on the left side - THAT'S the room....
    Don't spend time in the first large elevator room looking for the caches - they're not there... ;)
