Is there a reason I’d want to disable my Badass stat bonuses?

As I’ve been playing I’ve been spending my Badass tokens on various upgrades, giving me a small and mostly unnoticeable boost (so far) to things like reload rate, gun damage, fire rate, etc.

Every time I’m on this screen, I see that I have the option to disable these bonuses.

Is there any reason I’d want to do this other than, I guess, to have slightly more challenge by having slightly inferior stats?


It’s probably for Min/Maxers or as Kotsu says, people who want to make the game harder.

I have noticed that sometimes I’ll need to wound enemies and my attacks will slaughter them outright; if the badass bonuses were pushing my attacks from 2 hit kill to 1 hit kill I could potentially want that. It’s pretty edge-case though, and all of the bonuses are only positive unless you’re trying not to kill something or die more.

It could also be for Duels now that I think about it; it’d be rather rude to take on a “fair” level 10 duel but one of you is brand new with no badass bonuses to speak of and one of you has +crazy% of everything.
