Simple pointers for 100% completion. Best seen post-game.
Zortch (Maxinum Against the Alien Brainsuckers) is a charming N64-styled shooter featuring 20 levels spanning five episodes and a total of 6 achievements.
Since the said achievements are rather meta compared to ones from similar games, discovering them on one’s own by taking cues from the relevant icons and descriptions is highly advised. Still, this guide provides clean-cut pointers for getting them all in case you miss some along the way.

Create a ballistic shield by alt-firing Pugon Pistol and plant a tripmine on the said shield:
It’s Mine Now!
Following on, get close to the planted tripmines found right after the stairs and steal one:
Interestingly, this achievement can also be unlocked while watching the pre-recorded demos that are looped in the main menu, in one of which the dev utilizes the mechanic in question.
These two can also be done on any level that contain a Brainsucker as a regular enemy.
Back to Sender!
You can have it back!
Back to Sender… Again!
I told you I don’t want it!
Wait for the boss’ projectile attack and counter it with a kick. Then, be on the lookout for another projectile and send it back by using Multi-tool’s alt-fire this time:
