    You know the little ball shooters that come into play around chapter 6. They shoot explosive enemys that explode when it touchings anything. Well when you find one of this walk up to it so it gets ready to shoot it's explosive and put it into slow motion. Then when it shoots the explosive use telekinesis to grab it and shoot it back at it and the achievement will pop. Plain and simple

    Cysts are these little pustules (for lack of a better word) that shoot out little mines if you get too close to them.
    What you need to do for this achievement is to Telekinesis Grab the Mine when it pops out and shoot it back at the Cyst that 'spit' the Mine at you in the first place.
    You have to be relatively quick to get the Mine before it hits the wall/ground.
    I found the best ones to do this to are the Cysts that are on the Ceiling. This is because the blast from the mine won't be enough to kill the Cyst and you will have many attempts to Grab the Mine.

    Alternatively,
    The guys over at Achievement Hunter have this Achievement guide that is both short and Informative.

    TheOtherBarberI didn't really think to do that or mention it. They're not really quick enough to warrant using Stasis if you ask me. But you do bring up a good point!

    The Cysts look exactly like what they're called, little pimply creatures. Like the achievement says, you must catch one of its projectile "mines" and fire it back at itself.

    If you're having trouble catching it's projectile, get close to where it's about to fire then shoot it with Stasis. Catch and release.
