Gamma wolves are the wolves under the betas, they act like leaders during fights and are strong and fast when in battle. Gamma wolves have grey eyes and they have longer claws then other werewolves. Gamma’s, under an alpha’s command, can transform people or other wolves into werewolves known as Epsilons, Epsilons are like warriors. Alpha's sometimes seek gammas advice when it comes to handling some pack members.
Gamma's have the usual werewolf abilities of quick healing and transformation, Gamma's have a howl ability called 'the hunters cry' commonly when a pack member such as an epsilon or alpha dies, the gamma lets out a loud long howl which instantly switches their epsilons into hunters mode per say. The gammas target is commonly tracked down and killed, the time frame depends on how strong the bond is between gamma and epsilon. Jace quoted "The longest its taken for us to track and kill is an hour" when Scott and Derek where asking about their ability in a pack.
