Kids can build the Mediator XL blaster with the Nerf Modulus Mediator Series. The series includes a blaster core, barrel, and stock (each sold separately). The Mediator core blaster fires 6 darts in a row with pump-action, clip-fed blasting. The clip loads into the side of the blaster and holds up to 6 Elite darts. Unleash all 6 darts rapidly with slam-fire action. The Mediator blaster has attachments points for the Mediator Barrel and Mediator Stock, so battlers can build the Mediator XL blaster. Side and top tactical rails provide places to add Nerf Modulus accessories for more customizing options. With the full Nerf Modulus system, create over 1000 different combinations! (Barrel, stock, and other accessories each sold separately.)
The Mediator was first leaked in summer of 2017. Early prototypes were accidentally released. It was later shown off at the September 2017 Hascon. It had a soft release on Amazon in December of 2017.
- With the Mediator Barrel and the Mediator Stock equipped, the blaster is known as the Mediator XL.
- The Mediator may have trouble with N-Strike six dart clips, due to the older clip design not used in the modern six dart clip.
- There are some images of a prototype "Mediator series" logo, which implies that the Mediator would have been part of its own titular series, or at least a sub-series. Images of these logos can be found in an official Hasbro brand asset toolkit on Annie Stuckey's website.
- Interestingly, stock images of the Mediator show the blue accents in lighter and darker shades than they really are.
