I just got to thinking, that on the cover of the game, and on some loading screens the sniper characters are wearing capes. How come they don't do this in game?

Because Sniper Cape is a very complex part of a uniform/gear, it required either very smart rigging for it not to look silly with anims or to use PhysX engine to simulate its behavior dunamically when moving. So IOM ended up using PhysX, but it was causing too much issues and dev team decided that its not worth spending so much time on fixing something so irrelevant. I believe it was Dibbler, who made it possible, but he's working at AMG now.
