Heroic Mode is a playthrough where you only get a save at the very beginning of each level and the difficulty is set above Insane. There are thirteen total with a Boss fight on the fourth and the final level. The boss fights are relatively easy with the weapons I recommend. You should also experiment with the games various weapons in your first playthroughs you may find better combinations.

First play through the game 2 times gaining most of collectible and main story based achievements as it will take 3 or so playthroughs to gain the kills needed for those numbered kill achievements.
At this point you know most of the encounters and should be familiar with the game and weapons.
Find as much Nano as possible especially in the first four, five levels. Use this for Health, etc and weapons. After this point you should be causally looking for Nano to finish necessary upgrades
The weapons to use and upgrade are The Mortar, The Grenade Launcher, RPG and the Smart Gun. You will only need the Smart Gun for a few later air fights and will not be used much. The first two have great damage and also slow enemies down for easy kills. It is also easy switch between these three weapons in fast moving fights.
You want the at least the Mortar/ Grenade and RPG upgraded along with Some Health and Armor by the time you fight ATLAS in the fourth level, after this point you will just need to know the levels and encounters.

General tips.
When ever possible use the environment to help with kills.
Using the Grenade launchers secondary fire mode to draw enemies together resulting in explosive damage being dealt by the enemies own dying explosions.
Learn the location of the Nano to upgrade for the playthrough.
There is almost always health around I recommend focusing on weapon upgrades first.
Use the Smart Gun for hiding against the flying enemies later in the level.
The key to most battles is the quick switching back and forth between the weapons I suggested.
I did not find the Rail Gun or Smart Gun useful and completed the Boss Fights faster and easier than in any video I watched in preparation.
