It sounds like you want a World of Warcraft Hunter in Baldur's Gate 3.
Ranger for me feels great how it is, the strength in bows is amazing. I definitely loved my playthrough as a Wood Elf Ranger <3.
I almost always play ranged toons and a Ranger was my first D&D character
Try Warlocks for a similar feel - you can be the face of your party too. Given the ridiculously high magic setting Larian is going for though, I suspect martial classes will benefit much more and be stronger for it (unless handing out trinkets like the one that just about doubles Magic Missile damage like candy).
