Warzone devs to nerf Cash economy on Caldera and Rebirth Island
According to Raven Software's 11th January Twitter post, the current experience in Warzone "lends to an overabundance of Cash." Subsequently, the developers note that they are "working towards a more balanced approached," signalling an incoming nerf to the Cash economy in Warzone Pacific.

With that in mind, we recognize that the current experience lends to an overabundance of Cash.
We're working towards a more balanced approached. Updates will come as we hone in on a solution.
This latest announcement has been met with mixed reactions from players on Reddit. "Yeah, [the] abundance of money is definitely what needs [to be] worked on. Give me a break," said one Reddit user sarcastically.
"Might want to sort out buy stations freezing first; otherwise, any amount of money is useless," said another disgruntled player. "For real. The devs are so clueless on what the community actually wants; it is wild," said a third.
A fourth user argued for the balance change. "You find way too much cash in the new map; it's actually insane. I consistently get AUAV's up before the first zone is closed, and constantly hear them going off from others [...] A balance is needed," they said.
Despite this, the overwhelming majority of players think that the latest update is unnecessary given the abundance of issues plaguing Warzone Pacific.
So, naturally, players have sought to request that Raven Software address more pressing concerns, such as the increasing cost of killstreaks, or instead, consider the return of early Loadouts.
However, only time will tell whether the developers will proceed with their change or heed players' feedback ahead of the mid-season patch arriving on 13th January.
