As easy as it sounds...just kill one walker with each of the melee weapons. There are eight melee weapons, including the starting knife. They can be found at the following locations:

1) Knife
-Start with the knife
2) Hammer
-In the starting cabin
3) Lead Pipe
-Sedalia and Sherwood (garage of house that has black car parked in
4) Hatchet
-Garwater (near a campfire) and Taggart (near squirrel, in an open garage near a yellow car) + others
5) Machete
-Fontana (in diner, in cooler) and Polksville (start of level, stuck
in fence where walkers are trying to get through)
6) Baseball bat
-Lemon Hill (room above school bus) and Taggart
7) Sledge Hammer
-Lemon Hill (wooden shed behind graveyard, near church) and
Polksville (at a dead end in train yard, leaning against wall).
Sherwood(in garage next to squirrel-2nd house on left from start)
8) Fireaxe
-Lafferty (mall that you have to travel through) and Stadium
(2nd tent on left from start). Cleburne (atrium lower level holding
double doors closed with "Don't Open Dead" sign on them.

Many of these weapons can be found in other locations than what's listed. Execution kills do not count, as they use the knife, not the melee or ranged weapon you are holding.

Multiple gamers have confirmed that this will unlock over multiple playthroughs. Thanks for the input on that issue. Special thanks to ruprket for taking the time to update the list of weapons locations.
