It's not fast-paced just because it only takes 10 minutes. There are only 18 players. Spread that amongst 10 minutes and compare to Fortnite or Blackout with 80+ players in matches that take 15-20 minutes. 10 minutes for 18 players is actually really slow, despite the small map.
They should either get rid of the economy competely or quadruple the money you get from cash stacks. So you can actually get weapons quickly. And at the same time also add like 3 reserve magazines to every found or purchased gun or triple the amount of ammunition from the boxes.
Because right now it feels like the first 3-5 minutes all you do is look for cash or a pistol, SMG if you're lucky. Now you have a weapon and it has 10 shots so you have to spend another minute looking for ammunition to get an extra reserve magazine so you actually have a chance to kill an armored opponent with the USP or Glock you found.
Balance in that mode is all over the place right now.
