I heard this game was easy but no details deeper than that. I didn't know if one of the characters was over-powered or there was a certain trick. Even after becoming a free title with Games with Gold there still wasn't a solution here. Shoot 'em Ups aren't exactly my jam (I prefer Welch's), so I'm posting this solution for people in the same boat.

"Singular" is Livelock's Hard difficulty, and the truth is, it really is that easy. There is no penalty for dying. After death you are "reprinted" and sent hurdling back to battle in a drop pod (think Titanfall or Section 8). All the enemies you've defeated are still gone and all the carbon and experince you've collected remains. I don't think there is anyone here incapable of beating this mode as long as they have the patience and persistence to keep chipping away bit by bit.

The first act especially features a few defense and escorting sequences. Everbody's favorite, right? Even on Hard these didn't seem like much of a problem, I passed them all first time. However, these might be the only parts that you can actually fail.

There is also the option of running past most enemies straight to the objectives. If you are aiming for the full completion be aware that decrypting all the master data cards (Lulzsec achievement) requires you to kill a fair amount of each type of enemy though.

Singular difficulty is available to play right away and the achievements for beating Medium and Easy will unlock along side. I started on it for my first playthrough and didn't even upgrade my weapons until I had collected 2,500 carbon (Carbon Cognoscente acheivement). I chose Vanguard for my chassis as he seemed melee centered and I'm not a huge fan of the shooting mechanics in this game. For weapons I stuck with the Gauntlets, Reaper, and Havok Launcher, with the Countermeasures, Seismic Wave, and Fault Line functions when they became available. This is a very offensive loadout, but that works for me. I'm sure it can be completed with any character and set up.

It should also be mentioned that the campaign can be played on Singular diffculty in co-op as well. I only played one mission in co-op for the co-op specific achievements but I believe the same rules apply. So if you have a friend or two that want to get it done this is definitely an option.

The campaign features 21 levels:
Act 1: 11 levels
Act 2: 6 levels
Act 3: 4 levels

My playthrough of this difficulty took approximately six hours. The game keeps track of the highest difficulty you've completed each level on. You can feel free to jump around to previously completed levels, on other difficulties, and even with different characters, and not worry about the achievement glitching.
