99 red balloons achievement - Kill 10 enemies while they are in an anti-gravity bubble.

An anti-gravity bubble is a zone created by the Magnetar, a weapon you found in chaper 2-3 "Prison Escape", used the first time to open a manhole.
The technique I used to obtain the achievement it's pretty easy: find a level with a lot of enemies in a bunch (I took 2-4 "Breaking Camp" just because it was the next one... destroy some UFO with AA gun for the footsoldiers to arrive), shoot the Magnetar on the floor in the middle of them and then a bomb (normal one, not the Pokeball! :-D) in the same spot.
You'll have to make them explode while floating in the air (NOT falling or lying on the ground!) for the counter to go up. After 10 enemies you should have the achievement.
If you use the level 2-4, note that you can have bombs checking the crate in the middle of the tents area (gray arrow on the radar, same one you use to change weapons).

IMPORTANT: as Genericchicken8 pointed out (thanks!), make sure to do this before you fully upgrade the Magnetar, 'cause at the second stage is so powerful that instantly kills, so you can't get the enemies to float in the anti-gravity field. And because the weapons upgrades are tied to your profile (not to your save file), you can miss the achievement! :-/
