|Type||Abnormal Status Ailments|
Exhaust is a Status Effect in Monster Hunter Rise (MHR or MHRise). Status Effects are various buffs, effects, and ailments that can be afflicted on both hunters and monsters. Both Hunters and Monsters can receive Effects from Skills, the environment, and attacks.
Effect on Hunters
Exhaust cannot be inflicted on hunters.
Effect on Monsters
Monsters that are afflicted with exhaust will have their Stamina reduced. Inflicting Exhaust on a monster will cause a special stagger animation, followed by drooling.
Exhaust is a special Status Effect that is inflicted by mainly by blunt weapons like the Hammer and Hunting Horn. It can also be inflicted by Switch Axes with Exhaust Phials, Bows with Exhaust Coating, Light Bowguns and Heavy Bowguns with Exhaust Ammo.
Exhaust is not affected by any status damage up skills or effects, but is affected by the Stamina Thief skill.
When Exhaust is successfully inflicted, it reduces a Monster's stamina and causes a special stagger effect, followed by drooling. Like other status effects, each Monster has resistances to the Exhaust effect by way of Initial Resistance, Next Resistance Threshold, Maximum Resistance, Natural Buildup Degradation and Total Effect.
If you see a * next to a monster's name, it means it is immune to this particular Status Effect.

Weapons that Inflict Exhaust
Exhaust cannot be inflicted with weapons in the same way that most other Status Effects can. Unlike Poison or Paralysis, most weapons cannot be forged with Exhaust as their element. Instead, there are two special sources of Exhaust Damage. The first is innately built into almost every weapon type as a special kind of damage called Blunt Damage. Almost every weapon class is capable of inflicting Blunt Damage, which means that just about every weapon is capable of inflicting Exhaust Damage by using certain attacks (although some weapons are better at it than others, like the Hammer and Hunting Horn which deal blunt damage with every attack).
The second source of Exhaust Damage consists of weapons capable of dealing raw Exhaust Damage. As mentioned before, most weapons do not come with Exhaust built into them as a Status Effect. However, certain weapons are capable of using special weapon mechanics to deal raw Exhaust Damage. These weapon mechanics are usually limited however, meaning you are limited with how much you can use them to inflict raw Exhaust Damage on monsters. Below is a a list of weapons that deal raw Exhaust Damage, as well as the specific attacks for each weapon that deal raw Exhaust Damage. For more information on Blunt Damage and which weapons/attacks deal Blunt Damage, please see the Stun page.

Decorations with Skills Related to Exhaust
All blunt attacks, including shield hits do exhaust damage. However the sword and shield’s shield bash is really the only viable source(excluding hammer,HH,SA). Other weapons like Lance or Great Sword tackle just can’t deal it quick enough to be efficient.
Does the Wyrmstake Cannon of Wide Gunlances deal exhaust damage at all?
So does Lance do exhaust damage when performing a guard advance shield bash?
