SW is simply ranged support dps. Do not expect it to be full on burst or heavy dps and you will be fine.
There is no "support dps". SW is classified as Ranged DPS. https://ibb.co/Y28Wx7b

The game is build around 2/2/2 setups. You either tank, dps, heal or go home.

Shadow warrior is a shadow of itself after the last changes. Overnerfed into the ground.

It really doesnt matter what we agree or disagree to classify a SW as or even what role it fufills.

A SW will always fall short of an equally skilled and geared BW/Sorc at range. There are a variety of reasons for this, but first and foremost its because of survivability and a hybrid class design. Recent nerfs or not its been this way forever and the quicker you accept this the better off you will be.

Trust me, I've been there exactly where you are now and thinking exactly what you are thinking now and left for other classes long ago.

Spec assault+skirm ; wreck many foes in 1v1/6v6 (you will still have trouble downing SnB tanks though), switch to skirm if they kite away and finish them, and/or support your team with AoE Pierce Defense debuff, while enjoying your 65% parry + 4k armor in melee stance.

No, you wont do the aoe damage of an inge or a BW, but you still can pack a punch in melee (up to 7-8k burst) with merciless soldier, and actually be useful for your realm when funneling.

And thanks to the Bullseye tactic, you can go 4 FS with zero renown in crit, while still being up to 40-45% crit pretty much everytime.
