To get the gamma container in Escape From Tarkov you need to purchase the Edge of Darkness edition (EoD) of the game.  It is quite expensive at around $120 or 109 euros.  There are often sales on however so keep an eye out for them as the EoD edition will normally be 20% off.

Can I Buy The Gamma Container On The Flea Market?

Previously this used to be possible and some players would abuse this by creating their account, selling their gamma container on the market and then giving their money to a friend to transfer later.  

You can no longer list any secure container on the flea market.  Whether this was a business decision to try and sell more edge of darkness accounts I don’t know.  Overall however this is a positive thing for the game to avoid the abuse of selling containers on the flea market.

Can I Get The Gamma Container Through Quests?

The gamma container cannot be obtained through quests, only from purchasing the Edge of Darkness edition.  

The Epsilon secure container & the Kappa secure container can both be acquired from completing quests.  The Epsilon container is 4×2 in size whereas the Kappa is the largest container at 3×4.
