Machetes have a bad guy rep right now, thanks to unpleasant association with Rwandan genocides and South American gangs.
Thing about Zombie Combat Tactics is, except perhaps for the endurance required if you get overwhelmed by the horde, Zombie Combat is a lot easier than active, smart, fast human combat. Who wouldn't rather shoot at slow shuffling moaning foes that don't know enough to take cover, as opposed to fast running, quick thinking, organized, human foes who can shoot back?
Likewise for a "melee weapon" - something purpose designed for fighting is a lot more important if you're fighting a sentient foe who can fight back, and might have a few moves of his own. Whereas zombies, again, don't exactly fight. They just keep advancing. An agricultural implement designed to hack or reap might be just fine against foes that are more like mobile stalks of grass than living animate threats.
ehhh... yes and no. Yes, zombies don't have the ingenuity of a human, but they don't tire, don't stop, and don't back down no matter what you do to them, and unless you are a crack enough shot to get headshots with every bullet, you won't have a reprieve like you would in a battle with a human because they duck for cover, a zombie will always advance on you till it's dead or consumed you. And that's just the shamblers your referring to. What if they're faster, somewhere between that and ragers, or ragers all together.
