Hopefully this is right place for this suggestion.

First, machete and some other melee weaopons should have 2 different type attack like swing and stab, mouse left button swing and right one stab. Swing is more powerfull hit but not that accurate as stab, using stab you can hit the head better downside for that is not enough of power to pierce the head on first hit.
(This can make to use other melee or even spear use what i have seen on suggestion in weapon section)

Shield is one what you can find at police station and prison, or you can make that on planks and rope, or some other material like leather to make handle to shield.
How you make shield, for examle 5 planks and nails, and add shield durability just adding nails like fortification of windows. Further improving is add metal sheet on it.
Those shield what can find at police station or prison have highest durability becouse those are made for bulletproof, that grafted shield whith metal sheet have little of that bulletproof against pistol and shotgun for longer distance but not at close range.

Using shield you can use singler hand weapons, whith shield you can bash enemy and have chance to stun it.
How to use shield, using those buttons of side of mouse (numbers chance depends of mouse) button 3 block to attacks use stamina same as running, button 4 bash and use stamina examble 1/3 of your stamina.

Stamina usage for melee attacks can think like swing use 1/4 of stamina smaller melee weapon but if use those 2 handed melee weapons it use 1/3 of stamina, so you can't just running around and chop all zombies to headless.

Forget that shield durability on numbers.

So shield made wood planks and fully upgraded has 200hp and need 50 nails to upgrade for that, when metal sheet added it has 500hp. Those police shield has 1000hp.
That wooden shield can repair just add nails, but that metal sheet need to worn down before it can be change to new one.
That police shield repaired whith metal sheet or some other metal what can add in game or already can be found in game, this is little tricky when normally those shields just scrapped when those get too bad shape to use, that's why perhaps it's better it just broke down to 2 metal sheets.
