comment Is there a reason I'd want to disable my Badass stat bonuses?
Off the top of my head, I can think of at least 2 situations in the game that want stats in the opposite of the typical direction. The first is health-gating abuse. Since health-gate prevents you from dying to any hit as long as you are over half of your max hp, the goal is to reduce your maximum hp while having high regeneration. Having +maximum hp in badass ranks can be counterproductive. A second case is melee builds with roid shields that need their shields down to get the bonus, in which case a lower shield recharge delay from badass points can also be counterproductive.

comment Lost file when renaming it
@amarillo You're right. Since the command ran without error, OP probably just clobbered whatever existing .dat file he had.

comment Do low level weapons have less effect then their damage status?
In addition to all this E-tech pistol variants (darts and spikers) have special projectiles with delayed damage (projectile only explodes a second or two after it lands), which not only makes it harder to observe its true damage in the heat of battle, but also makes it much more awkward to use. In addition, E-tech pistols cannot get any critical hits, which is a significant loss of damage.

comment Are some "health" foes weak against Corrosive?
HP bar color is usually reliable for normal enemies, but not so much for bosses who nearly always have red health bars even though some are armored.

Can you provide a second sample input and output? Just as one cannot extrapolate a line from a single data point, we cannot tell what you need from a single example.

comment Delayed Expansion
If you read about how to write quines, like here, you would see that what you are looking for is simply printf, which a POSIX sh should have. What you call "delayed expansion" is merely string formatting.

comment Is there a way I can grep recursively over all the files in the current directory to find a pattern and then print it in order of high to low?
Sort does more things than you might be aware of, which you can learn more about by reading the man page. Try sort -t : -k 2,2n

comment Unexpected field expansion behavior by bash for loop
@JohnCarpenter The only thing for loops iterate over is words. It doesn't care whether those words were manually typed by someone or resulted from field splitting a normal variable or a bash array.
