Hip fire accuracy

ive noticed that while this games biggest difference in playstyle compared to its predecessors is its emphasis on ranged combat yet it seems to have very unrewarding hip fire, now i will say ive mainly used laz guns and auto rifles but i find myself in hordes having to aim at their knees to get any sort of consistency with my shots, and lone enemy’s are not even worth trying to shoot because the inaccuracy. is this intended and why?
