Isn't that when you spot a vehicle or person and someone else kills them?

Ever tried pressing Q before? Spot assist is a point-bonus you'll get if you spot someone and they get killed by someone else.

Yes. Use Q to spot and wait for anyone to kill them
I am not blind and that is why I am playing on Hardcore

1. spot an enemy with Q or with a radar device
2. someone on your team kills the spotted enemy

Or it could be the flip of that where you kill a spotted enemy,

Press Q then you will see a little orange triangle over the enemys head.. and when someone on your team kills him you get a spot assist

You can rack up a lot of assists using the MAV or TUGS since it can motion detect nearby enemies, automatically spotting them without needing line of sight.

Press Q or use TUGS to spot people with.

Spot assist are pretty hard to get, firstly, you have to blow up a tank. This may seem simple, but the tank must be constantly full at 2/2.
Secondly, you have to ram a helicopter into a jet while the jet is in hover mode. This is also pretty hard, but it also has to be a scout helicopter.
Thirdly, you will have to run over 23 enemies with the DPV. In one game.

After that, pressing Q will result in an enemy being spotted, and mark them for friendlies.

This is probably the only good assignment that educates people to spot for your teammate.

Using the MAV is one of the best ways to get all 50

Play TeamDM in Kharg Island or Noshahr Canals and install a T-UGS near container zone

Or you could just use the "aggressive reconnaissance" technique in metro.

You're not a good Battlefield 3 (or heck, Bad Company 2) player if you don't spam Q like mad.
