    Very simple achievement. By far the easiest way to do this I found was to use one of the cannon turrets. Simply wait for it to fire at you, grab the shell with telekinesis power and throw it right back at it.

    Cannon turrets aren't that common, but you'll come across a fair few along the way while completing the single player. Just stick with it and you'll find one eventually.

    KrandorListing levels and locations for some of the turrets would make this solution better.

    MarioTooApparently, your answer is right there. People vote negatively because not only do they want a solution, they want you to do every bit of leg-work as well.

    I also found with a Houdini Splicer, you can "grab" & throw the balls of fire they throw at you. Hope this helps if you can't find many turrets later in the game.
    When I say "grab" I mean use telekenesis to stop it from hitting you, then aiming it back at the Houdini Splicer.

    Use telekinesis to send a missile or grenade at the person or turret that shot it at you.
    Be quick and shoot it back fast, because it may explode in your face.
    Keep in mind you have to KILL them with it.
