Deltaware is unavailable at the start, so is Fairlight Caliban; instead of buying Agi3->4 for 20 karma, start with Agi4 Cha2 and buy Cha2->3 for 15 karma. And don't give up on your other builds, just try to build some other way in the same thread.

Agreed.

Cerebral boosters for a mundane build is almost a must, or at the very least, exceptional attribute logic.

Leftover cash is to be spent for some ammo, a medkit, slap patches and maybe some cheap throwaway commlinks and pistols.
Please note that if you change your Hyundai for a ford and get standard grade muscle replacement, you will have enough money for a second set of R4 fake SIN and licenses (or 2 R2 throwaway sets).
Enjoy.
Edit: tossed around some karma for better contacts

^Just a note that a lot of the Matrix Actions use Skills + Various Attributes depending on the test. Some of the most important Computer and EW related tests use Intuition, for instance. Nothing wrong with the way it is presented but, for instance, the dice pool for Matrix Perception is only going to be 13.

While I wouldn't say First Aid (1) is pointless since you can still stabilize people, you can only heal, at most, one box of damage on the test. Scrounging a few more points might be helpful.

Stabilisation and a box of damage is well worth 2 karma in my opinion. About matrix perception - wasn't really aware about it, thanks! I was using chummer 5 so I didn't really browse the books for that.
