    Catch a Brute or Leviathan Pod using Kinesis.

    Not so difficult with a Brute: Freeze him with your statis power (hold LT then press X).
    Shoot one of his shoulder.
    Then move away from him (not so far) and wait that he throws you a Pod from his shoulder.
    Then you just have to use the kinesis to grab the pod (hold LT then press B) and finaly return the pod to that damn Brute by pressing RT

    With the Leviathan (Boss fight at the end of Chapter 6): In the second act of the fight against the Leviathan (just after you shoot his tentacles), he will throw you a lot of pods. Just grab one of them and return to him.

    Exit BloomLOL. I thought the only way to beat the leviathan (after severing his tentacles) was to catch the pods and throw them back at him in its "mouth". It worked for me, even if that's apparently not the only way to beat it. Anyway, yeah, this is very easy achievement and practical for beating the leviathan to boot.

    This achievement is straight forward enough, while you can unlock it fighting a Brute it is significantly easier to get unlock it during the boss fight against the Leviathan.

    This is because during the fight Leviathan will shoot small pods at you, when he does this hold down "LT" and "B" to catch it with Kinesis, you can then press "RT" to fire it back.

    This method can be seen in the video below.

    When I encountered my first Brute what I did was try to aim for one of its legs while its running at you then at that moment it will stop unable to move but will start hurling yellow acidic membranes at you use kinesis on it and hurl it back it. You should definitely get two achievements here one for beating it which is story related and two for catching and throwing the yellow acidic membrane at it until it dies.

    ITS ALivExEasiest out of the solutions I found. Knocking out its legs keeps the Brute from chasing you down and killing you with a couple of swings, without burning all your stasis. That is if you like to play legit and not spam the stasis cheat. Thanks for the strategy I kept getting murdered until I took its legs out.
