Default Re: On assembling teams for GURPS Action . . .

Hacker and Wire Rat lens into each other easily enough.

Shooter doesn't lens into Demolitions, surprisingly enough, as Demolitions is a DX/IQ balanced template and Shooter very much isn't. Wheelman is a better lens for Shooter.

I tend to assume that the core team is Infiltrator + Face Man or Investigator. That gives a good mix of thief/spy skills, social skills, and some combat ability. Other roles are brought in from there.

My current F2F game is Action. We originally weren't going to have a Shooter, under the assumption "everyone can shoot." But one of the players volunteered for one, and it has made a big difference in the chase scenes. Gunslinger is HUGE in chase scenes, allowing accurate aimed fire while moving.
