- Weapon description

CSRG M1915 is a machine gun in CrossFire.


"Chauchat" (pronounced as "Sho-Sho" or "Show-Sha") CSRG M1915 is an antique gun of the World War-I era, even older than the Sterling and the M1A1 Carbine of the World War-II era.

Unlike most other machine guns, the CSRG M1915 has a very low ammo count, holding only 20 rounds per magazine with 100 in reserve, and it's a semi-automatic weapon, just like the M1A1 Carbine, meaning players must click fire constantly and the firing rate is way too slow. But making up for its disadvantages, this weapon has very good damage dealing - even equal to the AWM or TRG-21 and is highly accurate, making it a reliable weapon in hands of experienced players.

Tips and Tactics

  • Equip RPK-Infernal Dragon for ammo boost
    Since this weapon has low magazine capacity, by equiping RPK-Infernal Dragon it will gives an additional ammo boost for 20 rounds per magazine.
  • Don't fight with the Mutants alone.
    This gun is not suitable for MM/HM/HMX comparing to other machine guns, as the 20 rounds magazine is not enough to kill two or more mutants, and the slow rate of fire makes it harder to push them back, even if each shot is very powerful. You still need some fellow players to at least supports each other to survive.


  • In real life, Chauchat has proven to be the worst machine gun ever fielded in combat. It could jam even after firing a single bullet due to the amount of mud, sand, pebbles and debris stuck between the bullets exposed by its open-sided magazine.
