Change the page title?

I'd like to propose changing this page to "Puppets" instead of "Infected soldiers" (or alternatively, have the former as an alternate name), since that's the official name that the game gives to them. That said, the rest of the article is perfectly fine in its referral to them as infected soldiers since the term still applies to them anyway, not to mention how the characters hardly stick with the game's official label of "Puppets" for them. If need be, I'll also employ the minor change to the Parasite Unit page to suit the official term. DementedP (talk) 04:36, October 17, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, I agree, the title should be changed to Puppets. I wasn't aware they even had ingame names because I never bothered fighting them. Fireworks888 (talk) 04:41, October 17, 2015 (UTC)

Agreed, though we may need to do a you may so people don't confuse the article with either the Mantis doll or the Sorrow doll. Weedle McHairybug (talk) 19:18, October 17, 2015 (UTC)
How about "Parasite puppets"? --Bluerock (talk) 19:45, October 17, 2015 (UTC)
Looking it up again, I think "Puppet soldiers" would be the best? I just checked the mission again and the game refers to them that way when it outlines the mission objective. Specifically, because while they're free from the Skulls' control, they're not exactly vocal cord parasite victims, rather the Skulls' control simply had lingering effects that drove their minds to insanity. It's why you can even Fulton them as part of your Mother Base, since their physical/mental state isn't beyond saving. DementedP (talk) 22:13, October 17, 2015 (UTC)
