It comes packaged with two-hundred High-Impact Rounds, a rechargeable NiMH battery, a charger, two flags, a shoulder strap, and instructions.
The Prometheus is similar to the Nemesis MXVII-10K, as both are fully automatic hopper-fed blasters, meaning that it could generally be regarded as the successor to the Nemesis MXVII-10K. It features a single tactical rail on top, a carry handle on the front, and a sling mount underneath the barrel. The trigger area is located on another carry handle in the back, where another sling mount can be found.
The Prometheus was originally leaked in summer of 2017, along with other Phantom Corps blasters such as the Hades XVIII-6000, the Helios XVIII-700, and the Kronos XVIII-500. The video containing the leaked blaster showed it as a prototype blaster, the only part of the blaster that was colored was the muzzle. Its name was also originally unknown until a distributor website unintentionally revealed its name. It was later officially announced on January 24, 2018 and was shown off at the 2018 New York Toy Fair.
Reloading and firing
To reload the Prometheus, load up to two-hundred High Impact Rounds in its hopper. Pull down the acceleration trigger.
- The Prometheus MXVIII-20K is named after Prometheus, a Titan, culture hero, and trickster figure who is credited with the creation of man from clay, and who defies the gods and gives fire to humanity.
- Zeus, king of the Olympian gods and namesake of the Zeus MXV-1200, sentenced Prometheus to eternal torment for his transgression. The immortal Prometheus was bound to a rock, where each day an eagle, the emblem of Zeus, was sent to feed on his liver, which would then grow back to be eaten again the next day.
- The Prometheus has the highest stock capacity of any Nerf blaster and the highest capacity of any RIVAL blaster.
- Although some blasters, such as the Rhino-Fire, feature a carry handle, the Prometheus is the first blaster to have two carry handles with the trigger region being located on one of them.
- At 199.99 USD, it is the most expensive RIVAL blaster ever, beating the Nemesis MXVII-10K at 99.99 USD.
