Bahahah, yeah, you're fucked. Mostly. He didn't take enhanced reflexes, though, so you should be alright.
Actually, hold that thought. If he took sustaining focii, then you're in trouble.
I have a mage ATM that has 3 force 3 foci, and when we go into potentially nasty situations, he powers them up with force 3 reflexes, levitate, and improved invisibility.
So everything needs 3 successes on a willpower check to even see the bugger, he doesn't really show himself when he throws near-lethal stunbolts (for almost no drain, 95% of the time), and he can easily stick to cellings, etc, making him a decent infiltrator.
Honestly though, without invisibility, most mages are pretty squishy. Radar and Ultrasound particularly will fuck him up badly. AOE weapons, flame weapons, astrally perceiving mooks, spirits, etc.
Don't forget that cover works against astral stuff, including thermal smoke. Every corpsec and solider WILL be trained in how to fight mages. I imagine that it's essential in the 6th world.
