To obtain the cortex bomb you must purchase it under the operative tab in the abilities menu. You have to be RANK 4 in order to get this special grenade. The cortex bomb is, according to the game, a surgically implanted explosive that can be detonated when you are incapacitated. So get up close and personal to an enemy, get downed, and blow up the bomb to get your achievement.
To explode the bomb, press left on the thumb-pad/ analog stick when you are on the ground and hold LT until it explodes. Just make sure there are people around you when you do it.
