It all depends on the host, or field's insurance policies.

It would be better to test your own lenses before playing to confirm they won't break or shatter.

Probably test at 400 fps with 0.2g bbs on full auto like this:
YouTube - Arena Industries Ver.2 Goggle 6mm BB impact test
(Many games you will find up to 430 fps so it isn't something insane like the 600+ fps test in that video which only caused a blemish anyways)

Chances are if it is 787.1 rated they may still dent, and you would probably want back up replacement lenses too.
