Call of Duty: Warzone doesn't feature a typical in-game economy since barely any of the progress is persistent. At the beginning of every match, all players begin with a mostly clean slate. Buy Stations are the backbone of the game economy, are visiting them will be essential.
What are Buy Stations?
You may be wondering what do you do with the cash acquired during your gameplay. First off, understand that the cash is available to use for that match only, and that it won't carry out to subsequent games. Secondly, it used in the Buy Station, which is an in-game store that you'll find scattered in different locations all over the map.
Buy Stations allow you to purchase several items and equipment which can provide advantages over other players. You can identify Buy Stations via their shopping cart icon on your map. They can be seen on the Tac Map as well as the On-Screen Radar.

Where to get Cash?
There isn't any specific location in the game from where you can always obtain cash. The good news is that you can find cash pretty much anywhere if you're alive long enough.
Cash is most commonly found by looting. Whenever you loot supply boxes, you are sure to find at least $500-$1,000 in cash. You can also find it laying on the floor inside many buildings.
Contracts are a great way of earning huge sums of cash too. There are three types of contracts in the game - Bounty Contract, Scavenger Contract and Recon Contract. Completing any one of these successfully will reward you with a good amount of cash. If you complete more than one in a match then you'll also receive a bonus which keeps adding up as you complete more contracts in that same match.
Of course, if you kill another player then they will not only drop their gear but also all of the cash they were carrying - in the battle royale mode. In Plunder, eliminated players will only drop a percentage of the cash they were carrying at the time of death.
