Class mods are completely underwhelming

I don’t know if this has been brought up, but the class mods for BL3 are ridiculously underwhelming. One of the highlights of Bl2 was getting a legendary modifier, but now they don’t feel like they and anything entertaining to the gameplay and a Legendary feels as useful as a Common. Did players find them too overpowered in Borderlands 2?

Some feel like band-aids. Red Fang for example, great mod, but honestly why doesn’t Gamma Burst do this by default?
