Designated assist?

For the scan bolt assignment in Aftermath, you need 1 designated assist. For the SKS assignment, you need 25 kill assists with the laser designator. What are these? I have gotten many laser designations and designation assists, but I haven't got a SINGLE one of these. I've been in the tank 3rd seat getting designations and having the driver kill jeeps and stuff with his guided shell, and put down soflams, but I don't have any idea how to get these "designated assists" Does anyone know how to get them, and have any tips for it?

I believe you must first designate a target, and it must be hit by a guided missile while the designation is still active. You then get the amount of points that equals to the amount of damage the vehicle received.

Yeah, I've done that a bunch of times, and have gotten like 30 points or 60 points on a jeep, along with squad passenger assists, but it doesn't show up for me aas a designated assist.

Laser tagging a target which gets destroyed by a guided weapon gives laser assists, doesn't even have to be your tag from the beginning as long as you have a solid lock by the time the missile destroys the target

Lock on with a CITV or a SOFLAM to enemy vehicles.
This is a laser designation.
It will be a damage assist when people hit the vehicle with eg javelin when you locked it.
This will increase the damage the javelin does to the vehicle.

Ah yeah, doesn't need to get destroyed, just hitting it counts

If you fly in the attack helo at all, run with Laser Painter. I got the scan bolt last night entirely by accident. I was just flying the way I always do.

While we are on the subject, any general tips for getting laser designation assists? or Kills assists for the SKS assignment.

Does designating MAVs and SOFLAMs count as kills if they get destroyed?

Unless you're running with a friend armed with a Jav, then the only advice I can give is put up a SOFLAM in a high location somewhere in the middle of a map and just pray someone actually uses a lock once and awhile.

I've been working on the SKS assignment for WEEKS and I'm lucky if I get 1 kill assist in a typical day of gaming. 25 is just too damn much for such an annoying game mechanic.
