It existed long time ago. It was removed. If I remember correctly, it interfere with some intended mechanism, and was kinda cheaty.

Why?
When you are 4 soldiers against more than 20 zombies I find it beneficial!  8)
I regret that this option is being removed!  :-[

And devs and modders regret the existence of uninformed posts like this one. There were multiple issues with this feature, butbI guess it's easier to throw a tantrum and say that daddy is mean.

yes, of course is, - just shoot at them (on same tile where they are (supposed) laying, or throw grenade at this tile (or adjacent ones)

It is kinda ridiculous that an enemy highly resistant to cutting would instantly die to a cutting weapon just because it's unconscious.

Once again you misinterpret my words!
Am I angry? No !
Do I express a violent aggression against modellers? No !

You're getting a little too used to rebuffing me. I do not appreciate your comments while I do not criticize your work in any way.
But if you can't give your opinion anymore, say it frankly!

Yes, I regret that this option no longer exists! So what?

In my current XCF campaign, I carry a pistol just to shoot the Zzzz zombies on the ground.

I think the question could be re-phrased as, if there is a way to use melee weapons to finish off units on the ground, other than what was disabled a while ago.

My understanding is melee cannot attack terrain, like the Pickaxe does. The Kukri knife can chop weak terrain (like a real-life machete or real-life axe) and could be potentially used for this purpose of finishing off units.

A suggestion would be to implement this type of secondary attack to other suitable melee weapons.

You couldn't finish off downed enemies without cutting weapon when "Coup the Grace" was a thing, so doing that with any melee weapons wasn't ever a thing.
