That's randomization for you. By the law of averages, you will have at least as much shit as you will good stuff, and then a bunch of so-so stuff (which the player also considers shit) in between. You say they should "take a look at it," but that would mean removing or neutering loot randomization, which is against the core values of the game and hybrid genre they have created (FPS/RPG). It's fine if you don't like it, but there's really not much they can do.

Well, they could give us some tools to get one over on the odds, like crafting, customization, augmenting, and/or re-rolling; I agree things like that should be added and would make a great currency sink. But you cannot deny that the randomization is what makes looting fun. That's the entire reason Diablo and its clones are so popular, and why randomized loot (to some degree) is a part of almost every RPG out there.
