A baffler was a Forerunner-designed camouflage technique employing geometric distortions. A baffler was used to hide the center of Djamonkin Crater, which housed the Didact's Cryptum during his first exile. Despite being considered outdated at the time, the device was demonstrated to be effective enough to hide the area from a Miner ship and an entire Forerunner fleet. 100,000 years later, the Office of Naval Intelligence integrated the baffler technology in their Prowlers to enhance the vessels' stealth capabilities. Baffler technology was also replicated in the FOTUS-class Mjolnir.
