    The cysts are the little pod things stuck to the floors, walls, and ceilings that spit an explosive ball if you get too close. They start showing up as early as chapters 6, but I found the easiest and most straightforward place to do this was at the end of Chapter 9. After you ride the tram with Ellie and Stross, you will come out onto the platform and through a door (Pressurized Fuel Storage). Immediately in front of you is a cyst on the ground, with no other enemies around (yet). Here's what to do:

    1. Stasis the cyst (LT+Y)
    2. Walk up to the cyst and wait for a second, which triggers it to attack
    3. Back up to a safe distance
    4. When the cyst spits the projectile upwards in slow-motion, grab it with Kinesis (LT+B)
    5. Shoot it back the cyst and the achievement should pop
