Weapons with exhaust damage. They are VERY rare. Some Switch Axe vials have it, and bowguns have an exhaust shot. Other then those two, I don't know.
Slayer of Demons,Inquisitor,Ylissean Tactician,Kindred Hunter,Gray Warden,Dark Lord,Good Hunter,Chosen Undead,Nerevarine,Exile,Mugunghwa Investigator,Tremere Anarch,ESPer,Squad 7 Hero,Nohrian Prince,Arisen,God Eater,YoRHa Android,Tenno,Hope's Peak Dropout
the falling debris shot for the bow I think does exhaust damage as well
apart from bowgun ammo and exhaust phials, the hunting horn will do great exhaust damage. Hammer does KO while HH does uxhaust, so definitley skill in stam thief to a horn build if you can! to fully answer your question though, exhaust damage will
come from discharge attacks used in sword mode with an exhaust phial, using exhaust ammo, and to my knowledge using hunting horn in general as long as your hitting the head or legs
What does this even mean??
Monsters have an invisible "stamina gauge" that is drained by exhaust attacks. Once that gauge is depleted, the monster begins drooling and may stand still, move slower, or be unable to use certain attacks, e.g, Rathian failing to shoot fire. Blunt weapons like Hammer and Hunting Horn deal both Stun and Exhaust, Hammer specializing in Stun and HH in Exhaust. Some other attacks like environment damage, staggers, breaks, tail cuts, and knocking out of the air may also deal exhaust damage, but you may not see the monster actually become exhausted if you're not using a blunt weapon.
So only hammers and hunting horns deal standar exhaust damagae?? I want to deal exhaust damnage with my gunlace but i don't know if it'll work or not
Anything that deals stun damage (the star effect when hitting the head) also does Exhaust. So Lances (Shield Bash), SnS, Bow, and Impact phials all do Exhaust as well.
Gunlance shots can stun, so they also deal exhaust damage.
The Drain Jewel grants Stamina Thief.
Do charge blade impact phials cause exhaust damage?
Exhaust damage is a sub-category of Impact damage ;
Impact damage to the head will do KO damage, Impact damage to the rest of the body deals Exhaust damage.
Also, breaking parts with any damage type/weapon will deal Exhaust damage.
Hammers, Hunting Horns and weapons with Impact/Exhaust phials are the most common sources of this damage type.
Hope this helps.
this is the stuff that needs to be added to the wiki thanks for the better explanation.

Been added to the page
Its not Impact Damage, Exhaust is when monsters is breathless for few seconds, Exhaust damage comes from most weapons powerfull attacks
So any weapon with parts breaker or sligger would also use this?
Bless your soul
Does the Arc shot with Bow deal Exhaust damage too?
That deals stun damage, which can eventually KO or knock over monsters.
Stun and Exhaust damage happen at the same time. Different attacks distribute the damage between the two differently (Hammers do more Stun, Hunting Horns do more exhaust), but ultimately any attack that causes the "stun" effect to proc is also draining stamina. So yes, Arc Shot does Exhaust.
