Barghest was first built in 2017, with assistance from [[Bonfire|Adam Hamilton]]. It used a different colour-scheme, but was otherwise largely the same machine. It was relatively successful, most famously defeating [[Tungsten|Shard]] and [http://robotwars.wikia.com/wiki/Crackers_'n'_Smash Conker 3] in a single melee.

Barghest found great success at the ''Robodojo'' Autumn Featherweight Championship, held in November 2018. In the Sportsman class, Barghest took an undefeated path to the final, defeating robots such as the original Aegis, and became the first robot to defeat the third version of [[Amnesia]] in the Grand Final. Returning for the March 2019 event, Barghest went undefeated across its four head-to-head fights, defeating [https://robotwars.fandom.com/wiki/Iron_Heart_88#Isaac_Sharp The Tragic Roundabout], [https://robotwars.fandom.com/wiki/Team_Death Chimera's Revenge], [[Luna-Tic#Outside King of Bots|Crota]] and Boring Wedgebot #9, although it lost the four-way Sportsman final to Amnesia. Barghest also won its four head-to-head fights at the May 2019 event, defeating Dino, Barnsley Bruiser, Tantibus and Luna-tic, eventually finishing third place in the four-way final won by Amnesia.

Barghest competed at the UK Featherweight Championship in August 2019, now boasting the ability to move its head as a separate grabbing weapon, while still keeping its existing setups. Barghest entered the competition at a disadvantage, having not been completed in time for its battle against Sinister, and it was also knocked out by [[X-303]] despite a promising start. However, Barghest defeated [[Impact]], Graffiti and [[Red Hot Tilly Pecker|Push-Abili-Tilly]] in sequence to finish third within its group. This put it into a three-way battle with [[Crabsolutely Clawful]] and Revolver to earn a place in the Top 16, with Barghest and Crabsolutely Clawful winning the melee. Within the Top 16, Barghest defeated Drumroll, but lost its quarter-final to [[Barróg|Barróg Doom]] in a shock turnaround.

Before competing with Barghest, Chris Lobley originally built a pushing robot named '''Cerastes''', which the team continues to be named after.
