Ahead of the start of Season 1 Reloaded for Warzone Pacific, developer Raven Software has revealed a wealth of changes that will be arriving in the popular battle royale. In recent weeks, several members of the community have expressed their frustrations surrounding various issues ranging from Gulag spectators accessing matches to some claims of players with low K/D ratios gaining an accuracy boost.
Prior to the mid-season update rolling out, the developer revealed that it intends on implementing a nerf to Cash, one of the key elements of the battle royale. With many confused as to how a Cash nerf can be introduced, Raven Software detailed how the balancing will take place.
Warzone Pacific Cash Nerf
In a Tweet posted on January 11th, the developer revealed that there's an "overabundance of Cash" on the Pacific island of Caldera, enabling players to acquire tens of thousands of dollars over the course of a match, giving them easy access to game-changing Killstreaks and the coveted Loadout Drop.
The change left several members of the community wondering why such a change is even necessary, especially with players being unable to purchase a Loadout Drop until the second circle. With players needing more Cash to gain any kind of early-game advantage, is there a need for a Cash nerf to take place?
OpTic Gaming Warzone streamer Tyler "TeeP" Polchow responded to the idea of a Cash nerf with the suggestion of the Loadout Drop being available as soon as the game gets underway.
Will Warzone Cash Get Nerfed?
With several high-profile players and content creators seemingly against a nerf to Warzone's Cash, it will be interesting to see whether Raven Software turns its attention to more pressing matters such as improving how the game performs on consoles. As the saying goes, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!
