For combat, I use the Skirmish Wargaming system from Don Featherstone's book of the same name. However, I do not allow personal energy weapons in the game, which clearly makes a difference.

Nail to the mast her holy flag,

And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!

Can't believe you guys used Friday Night Firefight for combat.

Traveller isn't bloody enough for you?

Awesome! Vortex is not that far from Classic Traveller, actually. I love that system.

I forgot one... I used T2300 to run the OTU for a while. CT ships, T2300 characters... worked ... moderately well.

FNFF from 2013 was not all that deadly... if you were armored.
Squishies, tho'... Pop-pop-drop...

FNFF from 2020 is even less so overall.

My Traveller and CP2013 players NEVER went unarmored.

What is Friday Night Fire Fight?

I try hard to discourage players from getting into firefights. One bad die roll, and they are dead, although generally, when rolling for the opposition, I am notorious for bad die rolling.

Never got off the ground with, but was ready to:
CORPS
Hero (pre TH)
Mekton Zeta (Conversion work done for a friend)
I remember a group I was in that was doing something with Twilight 2000 and Traveller 2300. I didn't keep notes from it. But I recall that chargen from T2000 was transfered to T2300. Probably a vortex was used.

It was the combat rules (a stand alone booklet) from Cyberpunk 2013. It was also sold separately as a minis game (character scale, 1:1::Figure:troop, no fixed ground:table scale) ruleset via mail order. (How do I know? Because a buddy ordered me a copy from RTG...)

The chapter for combat in Cyberpunk 2020 was also entitled Friday Night Fire Fight. Some people had a possibly legit (from R. Talsorian) version of it as a minis game, but it was never released as such to my knowledge.

Overall, it's deadly to unarmored, but reasonably survivable in full ballistic bodysuits.
