The SCOPE thing is purely for the first handful of missions - now the squad has a few promotions, the support will be spun off into a medic and the assault/heavy chaps will take a nanofibre, leaving the sniper guy with his SCOPE. If I need to train up a rookie, I'll equip them with a SCOPE for a few missions as well before branching out.
