I use Shredder/DH too. Must admit I have given into using the SSII sometimes as my third slot. I was against it "morally" for a long time as well, however, it has been toned down from the absurd damage levels it had before. I also use it in a "normal" manner to control traffic choke points and to flush from cover at distance, not to rocket rush people's feet at close range and farm an ammo kit all day to grief with it.
My primary tactics still involve stealth jammer flanking with DH/mines and direct power strikes with Shredder/grenades.
Also, while errybody and their mama still suggest the Bigboy/Agony branch, I now fully suggest a straight Vega/Atilla/Shredder growth branch. Headshots galore; reloading is a small chore to ask for increased damage and dropping enemies first.

In capable hands, yes. It does seem a tad stronger than it looks on paper. Aim for the head and neck seems to help, as headshot hits multiply base damage to an extent. The high fire rate with this multipler helps drop enemies fast.
