Zombie gets +10% to hit with all non-weapon attacks. The Corpse class starts with Vigour Mortis.

Like all zombie skills it costs 100 XP

The Most Important Zombie Skill

As well as being the first skill on the zombie combat skills tree Vigour is also the most important skill for zombies to gain.

Look below for a comparison between a zombie with and without this skill.

# of Skills Skills Attack Damage per
Chance Average Damage
per Action Point
Average XP gained vs.
zombie / survivor
0 None (Slain survivor only) Bite 4 10% 0.4 0.2 / 0.4
Claws 2 25% 0.5 0.25 / 0.5
1 Vigour Mortis (Starting zombie) Bite 4 20% 0.8 0.4 / 0.8
Claws 2 35% 0.7 0.35 / 0.7

Now remember that all those hit percentages are Halved against Barricades, meaning that to get to survivors you are probably going to have to destroy barricades at a 12.5% level of success. Many survivors who die are put off playing in a Dual Natured fashion because without Vigour Mortis it is virtually impossible to achieve anything as a zombie.
