The Mega Mastodon is an automatic flywheel blaster. It has a large, integrated dart drum that can hold up to twenty-four darts at a time. It features the use of a carry handle; it has three tactical rails: two long ones on top of the blaster and a short one below, in front of the cylinder. There are two strap points, one in front of the top tactical rail and one at the end of the blaster, which the packaged shoulder strap can be clipped onto.

Reloading and firing
To reload the Mega Mastodon, load up to twenty-four darts in its integrated drum.
Hold down the acceleration trigger and pull the firing trigger briefly to fire one dart, or hold the trigger for automatic firing. It may take a moment for the flywheels to come to full speed; firing before that can reduce the dart range.
- The Mega Mastodon is named after the extinct animal of the same name; it was given this name most likely because of its size.
- The Mastodon is the first, and so far only, fully automatic Nerf Mega dart blaster.
- It is similar in appearance to the fictitious blasters featured in the Nerf N-Strike video game series.
- The Mastodon had previously held the title as the second largest Nerf blaster ever, only being succeeded by the RIVAL Prometheus MXVIII-20K as of 2018.
- Even though it was supposed to be a Target exclusive, it was on sale at Walmart.
