Spotting is the pilot using their Mark One Eyeball to establish line of sight with the enemy mech. The base spotting distance is 300 units and visibility is unaffected by mech class (however, light mechs have a +25% spotting range, as dedicated scouts). Shutdown or prone mechs are the only ones with a visibility bonus, being -25% harder to spot.

What truly modifies spotting is the MechWarrior's spotting skill. A MechWarrior can spot +10 units per Tactics point, for a maximum bonus of +100 units. Combined with a light mech, a MechWarrior can have a theoretical spotting range of 350 units - just 50 short of sensor range.
