I only have two questions:
1) Why is your logic so low?
2) What is the purpose of having two decks?

This would be a bad idea for even a street level campaign, 3 comp, 4 cybercombat are bad, combined with a 3 logic, horrible, this build would be lucky to be able to order Chinese in Hot VR.

I highly recommend B for skills, but if you aren't going for that here's the skills I recommend.

Hacking 6 (+2 Devices) - Dice pool of 11 (13) with current build
Cybercombat 6 (+2 Devices) - Dice pool of 11 (13) with current build
Electronic Warfare 6 - Dice pool of 11 with current build
Pistols 6 - Dice pool of 9 with current build
Perception 1 (+2 Visual) - Dice pool of 6 (8) with current build
Electronics 2

Shift around attributes. Something like this maybe.

Body 3
Agility 3
Reaction 3
Strength 1
Charisma 2
Intuition 5
Logic 6
Willpower 5

I would personally hardcap Logic at 6, get Rating 2 Cerebral Boosters, pick up Reaction Enhancers 3 (at Used grade), and possibly a Cyberarm or Muscle Replacement. Mnemonic Enhancers are also fantastic, as well as a Sleep Regulator (Who wants to sleep when you can play more games? Fits in with the tech junkie theme). Get rid of the Cat's eyes and either stick with normal eyes (datajack provides DNI, so no Image Link needed) or get some tricked out Cybereyes. You only need 1 pistol, especially if they are both Heavy Pistols. Drop the Ares Predator III and get a few upgrades for your Ares Predator V. Such as, a Silencer, a Concealed Quick-draw holster, and Improved Range Finder. Drop 5 months of rent, that will free up a lot of cash. Drop all the different types of armor, stick with the Armor Jacket. If you want something fancy but still armored, then take a look at Run & Gun's High Fashion Armor section. I would personally drop the Suzuki Mirage and get either a Rover 2072, or an Ares Roadmaster. Cars are very useful. Either way, spend 2 karma to get a point in Pilot Ground Craft.

I could give you a full build if you want, but those are some things I would recommend.

Don't forget the Computer skill.  It's what you use for Matrix Perception.  You can't protect your team from the enemy decker if you can't even spot their icon.
I'm Madpath Moth on reddit (and other sites).  Feel free to PM me errata questions!
Jeeze.  It would almost sound stupid until you realize we're talking about an immortal elf clown sword fighting a dragon ghost in a mall.

If you're sticking with Skills C, Electronics 2 is about the only place I can think to put it.

I might move a few of those skill points around in the hacker adept build. As built, he can't even attempt to sneak.

Yeah influence skill group is probably better served on stealth since he is more of an on site hacker, or could pull alittle out of other areas. This was a copy paste from a build that had a few tweaks , dropped reflex recorder automatic for upgraded bike and extra coin.

Can easily afford a chameleon suit to aid in stealth as well.
