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

It comes packaged with three Elite Darts and instructions.


The Mediator Barrel is an air-powered blaster that can double as a barrel extension; unlike modern air-based blasters such as the ThunderBlast, it is powered like older air system blasters such as the Hornet AS-6. The top of the blaster houses the barrel and folds up against the top of the blaster for use. When the blaster is not being used as a barrel extension, the barrel can be lifted up and used as a grip.

Official description

Reloading and firing

To reload the Mediator Barrel, load up to three darts into the blaster's muzzle. Pump the blaster six times for maximum range.

Press the button to fire three darts.


  • Technically, when it is being used as a standalone blaster with the grip deployed, it is slide-action rather than pump-action.
  • The Mediator Barrel is the first proper air-powered blaster since the Magstrike AS-10; the 2016 Missile Launcher Stock is also air-powered, but it is HAMP-action and does not use an air tank like the Mediator Barrel does.
  • Despite being designed for the Mediator, it is sold separately, as is the Mediator Stock.
  • Interestingly, there is a Nerf logo on the opposite side of the blaster that is inverted, specifically placed for when the blaster is being used as a standalone blaster.
