The Gamespot review had it right about the bat...

Yep, just overhead swing and the push. Then there is a "finish it" blow that is a "charged up" over head swing you get after knocking zombie down with 3-4 shots. To question above. You do not gain weapon skill with the bat. Only with firearms.

It would of been better if they added more melee weapons like crowbar , wrench , pipe ,
