The Mediator is a Nerf blaster that was released in spring of 2018[1] under the N-Strike Modulus series.[2]

It comes packaged with a six dart clip, six Elite Darts, and instructions.


The Mediator is a clip system blaster; it loads clips from the side, rather than the bottom (much like the 2012 N-Strike Elite Rampage), and also has the ability to be slam fired.

It has one tactical rail on the top and right side of the blaster. It also has one sling mount on the top of the blaster and another on the end of the handle. On the side where the clip is inserted, is an unjam button.[3]

Official description


The Mediator was first leaked in summer of 2017. Early prototypes were accidentally released[4]. It was later shown off at the September 2017 Hascon. It had a soft release on Amazon in December of 2017.

Reloading and firing

To reload the Mediator, load the included clip with up to six darts. Load the clip into the side of the blaster. To prime, pull the grip backwards, and push it forwards.

Pull the trigger to fire a dart.

To slam fire, hold the trigger down whilst cycling the priming handle back and forward as quickly as possible.
