    I was able to get this after exiting to the Main Menu after a social multiplayer match by pressing cn_X to bring up the Friends menu and cn_RB to scroll right to "Recent."
    Eventually someone who you were just in a match with will start a new match and a little eye icon will appear to the right of their name. Scroll down to that player and click cn_A to View Options and select "Spectate."

    No need to have friends playing the game.

    The other two solutions didn't work for me personally, so I found another easy solution to get this achievement quickly.

    Just go on Mixer, check Halo 5 under "Categories", see who is streaming right now and add this person as a friend on Xbox. Start Halo 5, go to your friends and your just added friend should show up there and you can spectate his match with cn_X.

    As Microsoft announced to move from Mixer to Facebook, the first solution does not work anymore. But instead of Mixer you can also use Twitch:

    Just go on Twitch, search for Halo 5: Guardians, see who is streaming right now and add this person as a friend on Xbox. Start Halo 5, go to your friends and your just added friend should show up there and you can spectate his match with cn_X.

    After you got the acheievement you can unfriend the person again redface.

    In my opinion the best and easiest way to get this achievement is doing the following steps:
    1. Play one match in any mode (You do not have to complete the match, you can leave)
    2. Press cn_guide button on controller go to --> people and choose "Recently played with", add any guy from the list.
    3. In main menu of halo 5 press cn_X and find the guy you have added, press cn_A and you are able to choose "spectate"

    That is all :)
